Message from the Principal
September is here! We are excited about the activities we have planned for this month. There is a lot of information in this newsletter, so please take time to read it carefully.
You may have noticed that the number of positive cases looks as though they are going down at Stewart. This is good news for us, but we must continue to be diligent and follow our protocols. More students are wearing a mask while at school, as well as, staff. We continue to encourage everyone to wear a mask on campus. Please continue to keep your children at home if they are sick or if there is a COVID positive family member at home. Following the protocols we have in place, is currently the best way we will keep everyone safe and our campus open for learning.
A huge thank you to our Stewart families for your continued support of your children and our campus. We cannot do what we do without your support. Hopefully, we will be able to invite you to the campus very soon. Let's all continue to do our part to keep your children and our staff well and our doors open for in person teaching and learning.
On another note, Conroe ISD is in the process of building a new school just a few miles from Stewart. Gordon-Reed Elementary will be ready for students in the 22/23 school year. This school is being built to reduce overcrowding at Stewart and other elementary schools that feed into Conroe High School. The district has formed a committee, which includes parents from all schools that may be impacted by the rezoning.
This committee will be meeting several times between now and January 2022 to evaluate different boundary lines for the new campus. I have included the dates for public meetings in this newsletter. Please make plans to come to these meetings. We want to hear from you as we work to make the recommendation for rezoning to our school board in January or February.
Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, ideas or concerns. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Take care everyone.
Dr. Julie English

News from Nurse Patty
Although we are encouraged by lower COVID positive cases, we are still seeing increasing numbers of students with multi-symptom illness (headache, fever, sore throat, congestion, cough and vomiting). We are urging parents to keep symptomatic students home and seek medical attention to rule out Strep/COVID or other childhood illness.
Parents can schedule FREE COVID testing with CISD for your students via your child’s SSO Portal. You will sign in to the portal and click on the COVID Central App, then click on “schedule a test”. This testing site is available M-F from 8AM-6PM and Saturday 8AM-4PM.
If your child does test positive for COVID, please contact Nurse Patty via phone (936-709-4215) or email (email@example.com).
Arrival and Dismissal
If possible, please consider transporting your child and utilize our drop-off and pick-up lines. These lines run very efficiently and safe and may relieve some overcrowding on our buses as well.
