DEAR PARENTS,

We hope you and your family are well and had a nice summer. We would like to welcome you all back, especially our new families to David. We are looking forward to the new school year even though there is so much uncertainty right now. Please know that we are working hard on procedures and protocols to make sure your child is safe, well taken care of, and academically successful. Our staff and transition team are working on both on-line and in-person plans. While we know that this newsletter will not answer all of your questions, please know that we will communicate with you frequently as we work through the details.


Thank you for all of your kind words of encouragement and support during these challenging times. It means so much to us. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or needs you may have.

ROADMAP TO REOPENING

Please continue to check the district's Roadmap to Reopening website, https://www.conroeisd.net/roadmap-to-reopening/, for all updates regarding the school year.

VERIFICATION OF ENROLLMENT

You should have received an email from Enrollment Information or Family Portal with the link to the Verification of Enrollment form. This form will allow you to update your child's information. As of right now, only 85% of our families have filled this form out. We need everyone to complete this form so that all of the information is up to date. If you did not receive this email (1 per child), please check your Spam/Junk folder. If you still do not see it, please contact Lori McCraw at lmccraw@conroeisd.net or 281-298-84712.

MEET THE TEACHER

While we are unable to have our "Meet the Teacher" in person this year, we are working on a virtual plan. We will communicate this to you through email no later than August 11th.

TECHNOLOGY NEEDS

If you have not already done so, please email us at contactdavid@conroeisd.net if your child will need a device for virtual learning. We will have a drive-thru pick up for these devices on Monday, August 10th. More information regarding this process will be coming soon.

CURRICULUM

Many parents have asked if the on-line and in-person curriculum will be the same. The answer is YES! The Scope and Sequence of lessons will be the SAME whether your child is participating in face to face or on-line. We know that the on-line platform will be different and we will be here to help you. We will work with you to make sure your child can be successful no matter which platform he/she is participating in.

SCHOOL SUPPLIES

Many of you ordered our prepackaged school supply packs through EPI. These supplies have arrived and our staff will be sorting them next week. If you purchased supplies, and have opted to continue virtual learning on September 8th, you may choose to pick up your child's supplies. If this is the case, please email slancaster@conroeisd.net. We will work out a day and time for pick-up. If your child is planning to return to in-person learning, we suggest leaving the supplies here and they will be delivered to your child's homeroom teacher. Of course, if you do need any of the supplies prior to returning, please contact us. Our supply list is on the David homepage at https://david.conroeisd.net/.
