Nurse Kendall Update:

6th grade parents: It’s time to prepare for next year! Your student will be required to have the Tdap and Meningitis (MCV4) vaccines before starting 7th grade. Your student may have received these vaccines during the 11 year old check-up. I will be sending out notices in April to the students who need to either send an updated vaccination record or need to go get the required immunizations.

Technology Update

Click here for a short article explaining some of the messaging apps that students use, and what parents need to know about the pros and cons of each:

Important Reminder for Parents! Please use your own account when trying to look at your student’s Canvas courses. Logging in using your student’s info on your own home computer may associate your gmail account with your student’s account, and prevent them from accessing their assignments.. If you have any questions about how to get your own Canvas account, please contact the Conroe ISD Technology Help line at 936-709-7658.

Library Update
