You can also pick up a hard copy of the Meal Application at the School.


Students who have not reapplied for this school year will be dropped on September 29.

Safety First

After school car riders must be picked up along the school driveway/sidewalk. We don't want anyone to get hit by a car. Think of all the young high school drivers who may be driving while distracted! We ask that you not pick up your child along the road or that you ask your child to cross the street.


Thank you for your help with this request.

PSAT Testing



The PSAT is the preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test. The PSAT is a great primer for the SAT, and even the ACT, but it’s more than just a trial run. PSAT scores are used to identify National Merit Scholars and award merit scholarships!



Moorhead Junior High 8th graders will take the PSAT on Friday Oct. 16, 2020. Please make sure your child goes to bed early and eats a good breakfast!

7th Grade Immunizations

Your child must be up to date with all immunizations. Please be sure to submit updated shot records to our nurse by October 13, 2020 so that your child isn't withdrawn due to missing immunizations.

Second Nine Weeks In Person or Online? Are you making a switch?

The 2nd Grading Period begins on October 13, 2020. Parents wishing to change their child’s instructional option (Remote/Online to In-Person or In-Person to Remote/Online) for the 2nd Grading Period should contact Mrs. Jeane, our registrar, no later than Monday, October 5th.


This will allow us the time to make needed schedule changes. If there has been no contact from a parent/guardian, no changes will be made to the student’s instructional method.


You must make a firm decision as to whether you will be an in person or online student starting the second nine weeks. We will not permit switching back and forth.

Anonymous Alerts

Conroe ISD will continue implementation of the Anonymous Alerts – anti bullying app. Anonymous Alerts is a patented student anti-bullying app that helps combat bullying and other negative activity in schools by empowering students to come forward to help themselves and other students. Social and peer pressures are some of the hardest obstacles for students to overcome, now they can report bullying and safety issues quickly using Anonymous Alerts mobile app.


Students or parents in the school community can anonymously submit alerts about suspicious activity, safety threats, bullying, alcohol or drug use, harassment, family issues, school shooter, campus safety concerns, and self-harm issues to school administrators or counselors. The app is free from the Apple Store, Google Play store, and the Chrome store. Students will still have the option to call Kid Chat to report anything at 1-800-kid-chat.
