Virtual Students ----- Hotspot Exchange!

The district has provided us with new hotspots that have updated, faster, and unlimited wifi usage. If your student currently has a hotspot that was checked out from Moorhead Jr. High School prior to October 29th we ask that you send it with your student or bring it to the front office so that we can exchange it with a new updated version. Please ask to see Davonna Wilson for the new hotspot device.

In Person Students

In Person students,


We ask that you promptly return any technology that you borrowed from the school. Please turn in your computer and hotspot to the librarian.

Red Ribbon Week

Does your child need help with homework?

The Student Success Center (SSC) is open Tuesday through Thursday from 4:05pm to 5:10pm. Students staying after school for tutorials can be picked up by the bus ramp or can ride the late bus home. Late buses depart Moorhead at 5:15pm.


Student Success Center Expectations

· Long before 4:00pm students should know how they are getting home (car or late bus); in other words, they do not decide at 4:00 that they need to stay for SSC.

· 4:05 – Students line up at the 7th grade library door, extending towards the cafeteria; whether they hear a dismissal announcement or not, they are released from class at 4:05 (no earlier) for SSC. They should not arrive later than 4:15.

· Students hand SSC facilitator on duty their official, teacher signed SSC pass.

· Students sign in on one of the iPads.

· Students begin working quietly at the appropriate subject area table until tutors arrive.

· Electronic devices are not allowed unless a tutor or SSC facilitator has given permission to use them.

· Students must ask the SSC facilitator for permission to use the restroom.

· Car riders are dismissed at 5:05pm and late bus riders are dismissed at 5:10pm.

Homecoming Week 2020

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.
