Illnesses and Absences

As cold and flu season arrives, many experts believe that these illnesses are spread by droplets made when people cough, sneeze, or talk. These droplets can land in your mouth or nose if you are near a sick person. You may also get sick by touching a surface or object that has the droplets/virus on it and then touching your own mouth. If your child is sick, please have them stay home, and rest. If they come back to school too early, they can relapse and end up missing even more school.


  • If your child is running a temperature of 100° or greater, or has obvious symptoms, he or she needs to remain out of school.
  • Even if a student’s temperature can be lowered to below 100° with a fever-reducing medication such as ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) or acetaminophen (Tylenol), the student needs to stay home.
  • A student may return to school when fever-free for 24 hours without a fever-reducing medication.
  • Please take a few minutes to teach and practice effective hand washing at home. Frequent and thorough hand washing is a must to help prevent the illness from spreading from one student to another.
  • Encourage your child to cover coughs and sneezes.


When your student will be absent for any reason, please call our attendance line (936-709-5014) or the front office (936-709-5000) before 9:00 a.m. every day he or she is absent. You may also email our registrar, Robin Curtis, at rcurtis@conroeisd.net to report the absence. Thank you!

CISD 2020-2021 School Calendar

The CISD Board of Trustees has approved the 2020-2021 calendar. For your planning purposes, please download the calendar here.


We thank you in advance for planning all vacations and travel outside of the school calendar. When students are absent, they miss valuable instruction that takes place daily. In addition to the loss of that instructional time, Texas schools are rated not only on academic performance, but also on student attendance. Daily attendance plays a large role in our accountability rating from the state.


We appreciate your support in this matter, and look forward to a great school year!
