A MESSAGE FROM MRS. SMITH
I am so excited about this coming school year and hope that you have been enjoying your summer! As always, we have been busy this summer preparing for the upcoming year. We are very excited to start the 2022-23 school year! If you are returning to Travis this year, welcome back! If you are new to our school, we are thrilled that you will be a Travis Timberwolf this year! We are honored to serve this community, and we can’t wait to start another great year with all of our students! Please know that our doors are always open, and we strive for open communication between home and school.
Please join us for our Meet the Teacher Night on Friday, August 5th (5:30-7:00). It's a come and go event. Get everything you need from student's schedules, backpacks, school supplies, car rider tags, get registered for bus transportation and have the opportunity to set up a savings account with our partnership with Woodforest Bank.

Meet the Teacher: Friday, August 5 (5:30-7:00). This is a come and go event for families to receive important information, meet their child's teachers, and walk the building.
Early Start begins on Thursday, August 11th. Travis will again offer early start drop off beginning at 7:45 a.m. through the cafeteria entrance on Pauline St. Staff members will be on duty beginning at 7:45 a.m. to receive students. We ask that for the safety of our students, please do not drop off prior to 7:45 a.m. as students will not be supervised.
Dropping Off Items- Please note, lunches left at home may not be dropped off. If your child forgets their lunch, they will receive a meal provided by the cafeteria.
Travis Cell Phone Policy - As stated in the district Elementary & Intermediate Student Handbook, students are allowed to have cell phones on campus. Cell phones must remain turned off during the instructional day and in the student's backpack. If students do not comply with this policy, staff members may confiscate the cell phone and turn them in to the assistant principal. A parent/guardian will need to come to the school to pick up any cell phone that has been confiscated, as it will not be returned to the student once taken up.
- Tennis shoes are required for PE. Wheeled shoes, house shoes, slides or flip flops should not be worn.
- Pants with holes or rips must be worn with tights or shorts long enough to cover the students thighs.
- Pants should be worn at waist level, not sagging.
- Shorts, skirts, and dresses should be fingertip length. When arms are straight down along a student's side, material should be long enough to touch the tips of the fingers.
- Clothing that may refer to or advertise tobacco products, alcoholic beverages, narcotics or any other prohibited substance or displays vulgar/inappropriate language, obscenities, or graphics/pictures of any kind that are inappropriate for the school setting are not allowed.
- Hoods covering the head should not be worn in common areas inside the building. (hallways, cafeteria, auditorium)
Applications for Free or Reduced Lunch
- When you sign up for free and reduced meals every year you not only support your family with a needed benefit, but Travis Intermediate also receives increased funding for the school year. That extra funding is purely based on the number of students who receive service. You are helping your family and the school by completing the application every year. Please do not miss out on these available benefits.
- Complete one application per household. Eligibility is based on family income and size, or if the family has a SNAP or TANF number. The guidelines are located on the Free and Reduced Application.
- Parents will be notified if the students are eligible for Free/Reduced Meals.
- Students who participated in the Free/Reduced program during the previous year in Conroe ISD may continue to eat at the same Free/Reduced status for the first 30 days of school. When a new application is completed before the 30-grace period ends, the new status overrides last year’s status.
- Applications may take up to 10 days to process.
- Foster children are eligible for free meals. Please contact our office with student information for faster processing or fill out an online application.
- You, your children, or other household members do not have to be U.S. citizens to apply.
