Moorhead Junior High News
FEBRUARY 2022 Newsletter
Parents and Guardians,
On January 28, 2022 we are going to conduct our yearly lockdown drill. We will conduct this drill to ensure that we are prepared for any emergency. We do not expect to ever have to enforce a lockdown, but it is wise to be prepared.
We already engage in many safety protocols such as requiring that all classroom doors remain locked at all times. We also vet all visitors who must sign-in and sign-out through a locked foyer. All adults entering the building each day who are not on staff have their backgrounds checked via their drivers’ license before being admitted into the building. Officer Quiller, our campus police officer, and our receptionists monitor all areas of the building through our camera system throughout the day. Additionally, every exterior door has an alarm and our school has over 120 video cameras to monitor happenings in the hallways, cafeteria, and various parts of the building.
I want to emphasize this is just a practice drill. We anticipate never enacting our lockdown drill, but in the event something ever happened Moorhead Junior High will be prepared. Thank you for your cooperation.

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.
