From the Principal:

We are excited to welcome students back to our buildings on Wednesday, August 11th! Our goal is to provide the safest learning environment for our students and staff.


With the rise of COVID-19 cases in our community, we continue to encourage hand washing and staying home when sick. Wearing a mask or face covering, while optional, is also encouraged.


These measures helped keep our schools open last year, and we are confident they can help slow the spread this year.


Masks are encouraged, but optional.

Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan

Self-Prescreening: To ensure the health and safety of all students and staff, all individuals should conduct self pre-screening for COVID-19 symptoms. Individuals waiting for COVID-19 test results due to symptoms or individuals currently experiencing any of the symptoms listed that are new and/or not normal for them, should stay home and consider seeking medical care and/or COVID-19 testing. Symptoms consistent with COVID-19 include:

  • fatigue
  • cough or shortness of breath
  • sore throat
  • congestion or runny nose
  • significant muscle pain or body aches
  • loss of taste or smell in the last 10 days
  • diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain
  • feeling feverish or a measured temperature greater than or equal to 100.0F

Masks/Face Coverings

  • No employee, student, or visitor is required to wear a mask or face covering.
  • All employees, students, and visitors are encouraged to wear a mask or face covering.
  • The CDC recommends all individuals wear a mask or face covering in public settings, at events and gatherings, and anywhere they will be around other people during periods when there are high levels of community spread.
  • Conroe ISD expects all students, employees, and visitors to respect the choice of others regarding the wearing of masks or face coverings.
