Conroe High School Tiger Tracks
August 27, 2023
Hello Conroe Tiger Families,
We have wrapped up the first three weeks of school and progress reports will be available this week. When viewing grades in the Parent Access Center, remember that a “Z” means that an assignment is missing and needs to be turned in to the teacher. Students please communicate any concerns regarding grades to your teachers. If you need additional help plan to attend after school tutorials or go to the Student Success Center. Students will gain or lose U.I.L. eligibility at the next progress report (first 6 weeks). Here are a few updates and reminders:

Important Information For Freshmen
CHS9 Car Riders:
If you bring your student to school by vehicle, then please remember that the traffic loop in front of the Ninth Grade Campus contains two lanes.

When our duty personnel see students getting out of the vehicle from the left lane, we will stop traffic in the right lane allowing your student to cross safely. Please remind your student to check traffic before getting out of the vehicle. Parents, please continue to drive slowly and safely in the student drop-off area. We appreciate your attention to safety and patience every day.
