Mission Statement

At Runyan Elementary, we are a safe and welcoming community dedicated to student-focused learning driven by high expectations for all.

A Message From Mrs. Salas:

Dear Runyan Families,

We are looking forward to see our roadrunners Monday 8/8 at our Meet the Teacher event from 5:00-6:30. Please ensure your child's teacher knows how your child will get home the first day of school. Please bring your child's backpack and school supplies to Meet the Teacher Night. Teachers will be placing your child's transportation tag on your child's backpack.

Our first day of school is quickly approaching! We cannot wait to have our roadrunners back in our classrooms! We will not be counting tardies the first day of school. To help with traffic flow, we recommend all students with the last name beginning with A-L be dropped off between 7:30 and 7:45. We recommend all students with the last name beginning with M-Z be dropped off between 7:45 and 8:00. We will have staff around the building to help students get to their classrooms. Only bus riders should enter through the bus ramp doors. Parents are welcome to walk their child to class on the first day of school.

Dismissal will begin early the first day of school. Please be patient as we work through our car rider line process, as parents learn the traffic pattern, and as bus drivers learn their routes. All car riders will need a car rider sign with a barcode on the first day of school. See car rider information below. Our number one priority is for all students arrive to and from school safely. Please be cautious as traffic is busy the first day.

After the first day of school, our doors will be open at 7:30 for all students. Our official school time will be 8:00 to 3:10. The tardy bell will ring at 8:00 and dismissal will begin at 3:10.

To allow our students to get acclimated to school and to learn procedures, we will not have any lunch visitors until August 24th. Parents are welcome to sign up to come and eat with their child using the same procedures as last year.

Now is a great time to sign up for your parent access account. This is a great way to keep up with your child's grades, attendance, etc. You can find the link to sign up at the bottom of this newsletter and we will have computers available in the cafeteria to complete this process on Meet the Teacher Night.

Don't forget to follow us on Facebook. We post updates, reminders, and campus happenings. @RunyanCISD

I look forward to seeing you all soon,


Anel Salas

Car Rider Procedures

All students will receive a car rider sign with a barcode at Meet the Teacher Night. Your child's teacher will provide the car rider sign to you. There will also be a designated table where you can get extra car rider signs with a barcode if you need more than one. If you can't make it to Meet the Teacher Night, you are welcome to come and pick one up from the front office on Tuesday 8/9 or Wednesday 8/10 before 2:00.

Car riders will be picked up in the car line that starts at the front of the school. Please remain in your car and wait for a school employee to assist your child. Please do not motion for your child to come to you and please do not walk up with the car sign to pick up your child. If you designated your child as a car rider, please remain in your car. Signs provided by the school should be readily available with your child’s barcode showing. A staff member will scan the barcodes. The sign ensures that we are placing each child in the car of the person authorized to pick him/her up from school and will help to speed up the car rider line.

If you are picking up more than one child, please show each sign with the barcode showing.

If you pull into the line at school and you do not have a sign, you will be asked to park your vehicle and go to the front office to obtain one. Be sure to have your ID ready for verification. You will then need to return to the car rider line or wait until the car rider line is done to to pick up your child. Children will not be placed in a car without the appropriate sign. Before pulling away, we want to make sure that every child is buckled in a seat belt. We want everyone to have a safe ride home.

Registration Verification:

Conroe ISD has sent an email to all parents of students that were enrolled, last school year, to verify their students enrollment for the 2022-23 school year. Also, this gives you the opportunity to update all of your information (email, address, phone numbers, emergency contacts, etc.). Please check your email and spam mail for this very important link, Snapcode, and process so that your child is accounted for. The link to the Registration Verification can also be accessed by clicking HERE.

If you cannot find your email and/or Snapcode, please contact the school and we will be happy to help you.
