A Note from the Principal
We had a wonderful week at Bush! Fourth grade's Open House/Fine Arts Night was amazing! Thank you to our teachers for doing a great job coordinating that event, and thank you to the families that were able to join us!
We also loved seeing our Bobcats dressed in their western wear on Go Texan Day! Next week, we are looking forward to Book Fair Previews and the Kindergarten Field Trip! Next Friday, our fourth graders will also be taking their 4th-grade picture. We have a lot of great things going on and a lot to look forward to in the next few months.
Have a great weekend! We will see our Bobcats on Monday!

Transportation changes must be made in writing before 2:00 PM. We cannot accept transportation changes by phone. To submit a transportation change, you may send a written note to the front office with the following information:
- the date
- your child's full name
- homeroom teacher
- bus number (if applicable)
- your signature
If an emergency arises, you may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. The e-mail must include all of the above information and must be received before 2:00 PM. If you submit a transportation change by email, it must go to the email address referenced above. Teachers do not check their email regularly throughout the day, so transportation changes should not be emailed directly to the teacher. Please send a new note for each day the change occurs; we cannot accept notes for multiple days or with multiple changes. District policy states that a student may only ride the bus they are registered to ride; students may not have a transportation change to ride a different bus.
The safety of our students and staff is of the utmost importance. Over the past decade, Conroe ISD has spent millions of dollars on a layered approach to campus safety including the installation of secure entrances and vestibules along with adding security cameras throughout our schools. Our greatest safety measure, however, is vigilance. Please report any suspicious activity or suspected dangers to the appropriate authorities. Anonymous reports may be made 24/7 to Conroe ISD’s KidChat hotline at 1-888-KidChat (543-2428) or through our new Anonymous Alerts app. Login: conroeisd
