A Message from Mrs. Ralston
Starting November 29th, we will ask that parents/guardians do not park on White Oak Blvd between the entrance of our school and the bus drive entrance. There are "Do No Park" signs posted at our school entrance and bus drive however it has been difficult to enforce with the amount of cars/golf carts parking on the street. We moved our "walker" exit from the front of our school to the side gate (along White Oak Blvd) last year because we could not start moving the car line until all walkers cleared. With over 100 students dismissing at "walkers", it is safer to start on White Oak Blvd for the students who truly walk home. Thank you for your support as we make this change after Thanksgiving Break. As always, please drive safely during school arrival and dismissal times.
Recent changes in Texas law now allow golf carts to be operated on public roadways, therefore golf carts are permitted during arrival and dismissal.
The "Can My Child Go to School Today?" chart has been updated. Please see the updated chart below. Thank you for your continued support.
For children wanting to eat breakfast at school, please remind them to go straight to the cafeteria when they arrive instead of going to their classrooms first. Our instructional day begins at 8:00 am and every minute counts!

Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten Bus Riders - Please Have Your Bus Cards
For the safety of our youngest bus riders, Conroe ISD require parents, a designated adult, or an approved sibling must be at the bus stop to receive all prekindergarten and kindergarten students. Please have your bus card for the bus driver to see. This adds another layer of safety for our students. Thank you for your support and understanding. Safety is our number one priority.
An Update from Nurse Corbit
As a reminder, please do not send your child to school sick. The body temperature of 100 degrees is what Conroe ISD considers “a fever” and we send children home at that temperature. Children should be fever free for 24 hours without the use of medication before returning to school. This 24 hour policy also applied to diarrhea and vomiting. Please refer to the CISD website at www.conroeisd.net/Roadmap-to-reopening for up to the minute Covid 19 News and Information. Most of your questions can be answered there. Our staff at Giesinger is following these guidelines, too.
Does your child have an allergy or sensitivity to a medication or food? Please double check with the Nurse to make sure our campus is aware of this information.
As always, please let me know how I can help keep your child healthy and successful this year!
