Through the collaborative efforts of all who pass through our door, we provide a safe learning community that develops lifelong learners and responsible citizens.
A Note From Mrs. Wilker
I am looking forward to our new school year and continuing with as many Galatas traditions as possible. Our school events, activities, and procedures may look different from previous years, but they will still be memorable, fun, and safe for our school community.
Over the next few weeks, we will solidify plans for the 2020-2021 school year. Please continue to check the District' s Roadmap to Reopening web page for updated Information. The Galatas Gazette will include updates that are specific to Galatas Elementary.
Thank you for your kind emails and encouragement. Our Galatas staff is here to support and serve our wonderful community.
Stay healthy and safe,

CISD Roadmap to Re-opening
The content on the Roadmap to Reopening webpages is designed to provide information relevant for the 2020-2021 school year. The details on this page are subject to change as we receive guidance from the Texas Education Agency, Governor’s Office, and State and local officials. Please check back often for the most up-to-date information.
Conroe ISD is offering both Traditional In-Person and Remote/Online Instruction. Both programs will follow Conroe ISD’s TEKS-based curriculum. Families will be asked to select one of these options when they complete their enrollment or information review in Enrollment Online (formerly known as InfoSnap). Should a family want to change their child’s selection, changes must be requested by midnight on July 28, 2020, by emailing or calling their child’s campus using the contact information at the top of the campus website. Changes to the selection can also be made at the end of the nine-week grading period.
A Message from the School Nurse
A Student Health Information Form should be completed online at the beginning of each school year. This form will give you an opportunity to list any medical conditions, allergies, medications, and concerns you may have regarding your child's health. It also includes emergency information for the clinic staff.
The Department of State Health Services (DSHS) will require all immunizations to be up to date, current, or a current conscientious objection on file prior to the start date of, August 12, 2020, for the 2020-2021 school year. This requirement will be in place whether your child selects online or in-person learning. If you have any questions, please contact your campus school nurse at email@example.com.
