We will be opening for a limited number of visitors during our lunches. We will use a Sign up to reserve (up to 2) visitors per student. We ask that you only sign up once every 3 weeks to allow for all families to share this opportunity. Please use this link to sign up for Lunch Visitors. We are going to start small, with one week published to be able to adapt and change things after the 1st week. After that, we will publish 3 weeks at a time. The link will be the same for the year and will be posted on our website for quick reference.
Make sure that you sign up under the correct grade level and date. We ask that you have no more than 2 visitors per student. If you have an extenuating circumstance, please call the front office and we will work with you! When signing up for two visitors, please sign each person up in a separate slot. We need to limit visitors to 6 adults total per grade level per day. We also ask that you sign up once per 3 week period so that every parent has an opportunity to sign up.
These will be days that parents (up to 2) can come and have lunch under the pavilion with their student. Parent will be responsible for student supervision, as our staff will be monitoring the students in the cafeteria. We will still be having recess during this time, so students (eating lunch with parents) will not be permitted to play on the playground...this will be a time for parents to talk and spend time with their student while eating lunch. We ask at the close of lunch, parents leave promptly to allow students to return to their daily schedule. Staying for recess will not be permitted.

Referral Requests for Gifted and Talented Testing
Referral requests are now open for Conroe Independent School District Gifted and Talented program. Although the testing will not take place until late January, referral requests are only accepted at this time. Referral requests can be made by the parents and/or teachers. It is recommended that parents of 2nd grade students wait until CogAT scores have arrived before nominating their child because CogAT scores are part of the GT assessment. If you are interested in referring your child, you may want to discuss this with your child’s teacher at conferences. Referrals will be accepted through December 17. All students will need to have a referral and parent survey submitted during this window (10-1-2021 to 12-17-2021). You may use the links below to access the forms, request a copy from the front office, or the assessment coach (Megan Caldwell). You can also find the referral form and other GT information on the CISD GT homepage.
