Principal's Message

Dear Ride Families,

A very Happy New Year to you all and welcome back to school. I hope that you all enjoyed the holidays and are looking forward to the year ahead. The children have all settled back into their school routines very quickly and have been very well behaved.

I would like to welcome Ms. Capote in Pre-Kindergarten, who has joined our Ride family. Ms. Capote completed her student teaching at Ride in second grade. She has actually been on campus since the first day of school.

I look forward to your continued support and hope that we can all look forward to a very happy and healthy year together.

We are beginning a new year full of hope and promise. The hope of using the things learned in 2020 and the promise of a positive and happy new year.

There is so much potential for success in the second semester. As I told the kids, “you already know what to do. You know how to walk in the hallways, you know how to follow directions, be respectful, and kind. It is going to be a great time at Ride this Spring as we learn something new everyday!”

Enjoy the weekend,

Megan Burnham

#Better Together

Please remember to self check your family before sending them to school each day.

COVID Tracing

There are likely many opportunities for students to gather outside of school with friends and loved ones. During this time, please express to your child the importance of taking precautions to slow the spread of COVID-19 by wearing masks, frequently washing hands, and social distancing. We all must work together as partners to balance the need for social interaction and celebration with keeping our schools open to in-person learning. Our partnership is critical in order to keep students and staff safe and in school throughout the holiday season. Should your child test positive for COVID-19, we ask that you email your child’s campus at contactride@conroeisd.net so we can provide the appropriate support and make the required notifications. Thank you.
