IN PERSON INSTRUCTION

We have had several questions from our remote learners regarding returning to in-person learning before the date they selected to return. If you want your child to return prior to this date, please email Lori McCraw at lmccraw@conroeisd.net or call at 281-298-4712.

ATTENDANCE/TARDIES

School hours are 8:05 a.m. - 3:10 p.m. Students must be in their classroom before the 8:05 a.m. bell rings, or they will be considered tardy. Please note that 7:30 a.m. is the earliest time that your child may be dropped off. We do not have staff available to supervise students until that time. If your child comes in after 9:00 a.m., it will count as an absence unless your child has a medical appointment, returns to school that same day and brings in a school excuse from the doctor.

DAVID SPIRIT NIGHT AT CHICK-FIL-A --- DRIVE THRU ONLY

Chick-fil-A located at 3425 College Park Dr., will host a David Elementary Drive Thru Spirit Night on Thursday, September 24th, from 5:00 - 7:00 p.m. When you present the flyer to the cashier, twenty percent of the proceeds from each order will be donated back to our school.

SAFETY DRILLS

The safety of our students and staff here at David Elementary is of the utmost importance. We periodically conduct safety drills here at school to prepare our staff and children in the event of an emergency situation. Throughout the year, we conduct lockdown, fire, evacuation and severe weather drills. At the beginning of the year, we announce these drills so that staff and students can discuss the procedures and then we move to unannounced drills. By doing these drills on a regular basis, it gets students and staff very familiar with the process.


Our teachers have an Emergency Operations Procedures binder in their classroom, which is easily accessible and reviewed at the beginning of each year and periodically throughout the year. Safety drill procedures are also discussed and reviewed with all students each year.


We appreciate your continued support and please know that safety is our highest priority. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 281-298-4700.

PARENT ACCESS ACCOUNT

We would like to encourage all parents to set up a Parent Access Account. If you are a KG parent, we would also ask you to go ahead and set up this account, which you will use more in the future. All progress reports and report cards except for KG will be posted in Parent Access.


If you do not have a Parent Access account set up, please go to the CISD homepage at http://www.conroeisd.net. Click the Parents/Student tab, and then “Parent Access.” Choose Register if you do not have an account or Login if you have previously set up an account. Please read all of the instructions carefully before beginning. Look under frequently asked questions for answers on how to change your email, retrieve password, etc. The student identification number is your child’s CISD number, which also happens to be his/her lunch number. If you are not sure of this number, please look at a previous report card or email your child's teacher. You can also email Lori McCraw at lmccraw@conroeisd.net if you need help.

COVID-19 SCREENING PROCESS

Our parents are valued partners in our Roadmap to Reopening Plan. In addition to wearing cloth face coverings, social distancing, washing hands, and regular cleaning and disinfecting of frequently touched surfaces, an essential element in helping slow the spread of COVID-19 at school is each parent’s commitment to screening their child daily for symptoms. Parents are also asked to keep any student exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 at home and to notify the campus. Below is a copy of the current screening process which outlines the symptoms. Please review the information and be sure to keep your child at home if he/she is exhibiting any of the symptoms described.


Please note that all campuses are closed to visitors at this time to help stop the spread of COVID-19. If you must visit a campus, we ask that you screen yourself prior to leaving your home. All visitors that come on a campus/facility will be required to use the Access Intercom system or call the front office from their vehicle. Once the reception area identifies the person and their need to be on campus, they will be allowed in the building. All visitors will be required to sign in using the visitor program. Each visitor will be asked the screening questions. If a “yes” response is given to one of the questions, the visitor will be asked to leave the campus immediately.


Parent/teacher conferences, ARDS, 504 meetings etc. will be held virtually or by telephone when possible.


Thank you for helping to keep our school community safe.
