Principal's Message

Dear Ride Families,

Good News!!

  1. Our Grandparents Day @ Grub Burgers has bee rescheduled for Tuesday, September 21st. It is valid all day!! We appreciate how much they do to support their community and give back to the schools.
  2. Picture Day is rescheduled for Friday, October 1st. Bring your smiles. This is the picture that goes in the yearbook.

On September 23rd, we will be Kicking Off our Ride's Reading Adventure Annual Fundraiser.

We are very excited for this opportunity. The last time we were able to have this particular fundraiser was the Fall of 2019. The greatest part about this fundraiser is that our incredible PTO does ALL of the leg work so the school receives 100% of the donations!! We have grand plans for this year's different reading activities for the kids and a Storybook Parade outside so parents can join in on the fun!! Our theme is Find 10 (people/relatives) Get $10 (from each). Just doing that will help us to meet our goal. Please see the PTO Website for more information More info coming!!

Ride's Reading Adventure Day and the Storybook Parade is Friday, October 15th.

Have a great weekend--

Megan Burnham

Covid 19 Updates

Conroe ISD is committed to continuing in-person education. Sally K Ride is dedicated to implementing the mitigation practices that were successful last year.

This includes ..

  • E-misting which is happening each night throughout the classrooms
  • Student hand sanitizing at each transition
  • Regular cleaning desks
  • Cohorting of students in classrooms, enrichment, lunch and recess
  • Refraining from large group meetings
  • SKR is closed until 9/7 for campus visitors.
  • All items should be sent with children in morning. (Please refrain from drop off items once school has begun including any food deliveries.)
  • Dots on floor will help with distancing

Please follow prescreening procedures below....

Self-Prescreening: To ensure the health and safety of all students and staff, all individuals should conduct self-pre-screening for COVID-19 symptoms. Individuals waiting for COVID-19 test results due to symptoms or individuals currently experiencing any of the symptoms listed that are new and/or not normal for them, should stay home and consider seeking medical care and/or COVID-19 testing. Symptoms consistent with COVID-19 include:

· fatigue

· cough or shortness of breath

· sore throat

· congestion or runny nose

· significant muscle pain or body aches

· loss of taste or smell in the last 10 days

· diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain

Conroe ISD has free Covid testing for all students. "You can register for testing through your CISD student SSO portal.

See Roadmap for Reopening for more information regarding COVID protocols.


Parents, Please make sure you are connected to your child's Seesaw account so you can see all the amazing things your child is doing at school each week! Teachers sent out parent invites this week so check your email! If you have previously connected to your child's account, you are still connected. Make sure to set your notifications to alert you when a post is added!

Conroe ISD is currently in Safety Alert Level 4

Conroe ISD is currently in Safety Alert Level 4. This means we will adhere to the Level 4 Response and Mitigation protocols as stated in the below chart. Right now our largest concern is the number of items dropped off on a daily basis.

1. Starting Monday, August 23rd, please refrain from dropping off all items (ie: forgotten lunch, water bottles, snacks, folder, etc...). We will provide a lunch, bottle of water and snacks. You may still drop off items necessary for learning (i.e.: glasses) or items PTO or teachers have requested.

2. If you are waiting for COIVD testing results (for a Ride child), PLEASE,PLEASE KEEP THE CHILD HOME UNTIL YOU RECEIVE THE TEST RESULTS.

3. Don't forget CISD does free/ rapid testing for all students. Sign up through child's SSO.

Thank you for your assistance and understanding.
