Transportation Reminders

  • All changes of transportation should be sent to your child's teachers in the form of a handwritten note or an email.
  • Please do not send a note asking for your child to ride another bus. We don't have the authority to make those changes. You will need to get in touch with the transportation department and ask for permission.
  • Unless you have an emergency, no transportation changes will be made after 3:30.
  • If you are picking your child up early from school, please bring your state ID with you.
  • Students can not be called out of class early to the front office to wait for you to arrive. They miss valuable instructional time.

School Messenger

All SMS messages received from the Conroe ISD District Office and your child's campus will begin with "Conroe ISD:" and come from the subscribe code 67587. If you have not yet opted-in to receive SMS messages, you can do so at any time throughout the school year by texting "Y" to 67587.
