Conroe High School Tiger Tracks
September 26, 2020
Hello Conroe Tiger Families,
We hope everyone is continuing to be well and staying safe! Our students and staff are continuing to find their rhythm! Progress reports are available to view in Parent Access and if you do not have a Parent Access Account a copy of your child’s progress report was sent home with your child on Friday. If you do not have Parent Access, we highly recommend you get an account. Our failure rates for students are much higher this year. You can use your Parent Access account to check on grades and help your child stay on top of their work! If your child is struggling with their course work please be sure to reach out to their teachers. Also, see below opportunities for Homework Help!
Here are a few additional updates and reminders:
Mask/Student ID Requirement - We appreciate you and your student’s effort properly wearing their masks and student I.D.s. Please have your student place an extra mask in their backpacks in case they leave one at home. We do not have a large enough mask supply to consistently hand out masks every day. Students are also encouraged to bring a water bottle or container with a closable lid. We have water bottle filling stations on both campuses.
Grading Period - The marking period ends on October 8th. Students should make sure that they have completed all of their work and submitted their assignments appropriately. If a student lost eligibility from the six-weeks progress report, then they will have the opportunity to regain eligibility. To regain eligibility, they must be passing all of their courses at the end of the marking period.
Instructional Option Selection-The 2nd Grading Period begins on October 13, 2020. Parents wishing to change their child’s instructional option (Remote/Online to In-Person or In-Person to Remote/Online) for the 2nd Grading Period should contact their campus no later than Monday, September 28. Grades 10-12 (firstname.lastname@example.org) Grade 9 (email@example.com) This will allow us time to make needed schedule changes. This also gives transportation time to make changes in their routing. If there has been no contact from a parent/guardian, no changes will be made to the student’s instructional method. If you want your child to remain in their current placement, then you do not need to contact us.
Free and Reduced Lunch Application - If you have not completed your Free and Reduced Lunch application, please do so using the following link: https://www.myschoolapps.com/. Your application should be updated each year. If your student currently receives a free and reduced lunch, they will have to pay full price beginning September 28th without an updated form.
Athletic Events - This year our capacity will be limited and tickets will not be sold at the gate! This includes all athletic events. Please see our CISD Athletic Website for more information: https://www.conroeisd.net/department/athletics/ or click here to purchase: https://apps.conroeisd.net/EventTickets/Default.aspx
Student Parking Information - Please be sure to see the parking information below if your child still needs to register or pay for a parking pass!
For your planning purposes, Monday, October 5th, students will be following a White Day bell schedule since we have a Student Holiday on Friday, October 9th! Freshmen students that normally attend the main campus on Mondays will need to report to the Ninth Grade Campus and follow the White Day bell schedule.
It was great to see such a large Conroe crowd in Katy last night! The outcome was not the one we wanted but we are so proud of our Tigers! All of our students groups looked amazing under the Friday Night Lights and we look forward to seeing many of our student groups compete this semester.
With Tiger Pride,

Please plan for delays with the car rider line.
Students that are being dropped off will enter and wait in the auditorium until we release students to class. Students who ride the bus will enter the building and go to the gymnasium. Students who are eating breakfast will report to the cafeteria.
Our dismissal will begin at 2:30 to assist with social distancing.
Important Information For Freshmen
Yearbook Pictures will be taken on Monday, September 28th. Your student received a packet of information for ordering photographs earlier this week. Students must be in dress code to take their picture. Photographs will be taken during our World Geography classes. Virtual students are welcome to take yearbook pictures as well.
These are the options for virtual students:
Between 8:00-9:00 a.m., virtual students can enter through the double doors closest to the football field. DO NOT enter through the main office. There will be a table by the athletics door where students will do a COVID-19 check-in and receive their picture ID card before being directed to the gym for pictures.
If you cannot make it for pictures between 8:00-9:00 a.m., students can show up anytime from 7:00 - 1:30, but they may have to wait for the on-campus students to get done first as they will need to return to class.
Virtual students may also make an appointment at the studio by calling 936-756-4443.
The final option is for virtual students to wait for the retake day to come to the school where there will be fewer in-person students - date is TBD.
PSAT Test – October 14th
Conroe H.S. 9th Grade Campus has PSAT (Preliminary SAT) exams for students to purchase for $15 on the School Cash Online webstore. Freshmen wishing to take the PSAT in school at the main campus on October 14, 2020, will need to purchase the exam by October 1, 2020. We have limited availability. Please be aware that this exam will be proctored on campus regardless of the instructional platform (in-person or virtual) selected. Please use this link to pay for the exam:
Again, this is optional and not a requirement for students. Typically, we encourage freshmen in upper level math courses (Honors Geometry and Algebra II for example) to take this exam due to the level of math tested. Please visit this website link provided by College Board (https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/psat-nmsqt-psat-10/inside-the-test/math) to view the math expectations of the PSAT exam so that you can make an informed decision on whether or not this exam would be appropriate for your student at this time.
Your student will have an additional opportunity to practice the PSAT exam during their sophomore year which will prepare them for the actual NMSQT qualification exam as a junior. Every Conroe ISD student will have the opportunity to sit for the exam for no fee their Sophomore and Junior year.
To read more about this test please review the PSAT/NMSQT Student Guide at https://collegereadiness.collegeboard.org/pdf/psat-nmsqt-student-guide.pdf

Message from CHS Clinic
If your child will need medication to be available at school, please call the clinic during school hours to discuss your student's health needs and to make an appointment to check in any required medication.
Any medications used to treat symptoms consistent with COVID-19 such as cough, shortness of breath, headache, sore throat, and body aches will not be administered without a current healthcare provider’s note. This includes: metered dose inhalers, cough and cold medications, acetaminophen, and ibuprofen. At this time, nebulized medications will not be administered during the school day.
SELF-CARRIED EMERGENCY MEDICATIONS
A student's physician may recommend that the student be allowed to self-carry emergency medications such as Epipens or asthma inhalers. Specific paperwork must be completed in order for the student to be permitted to self-carry medication at school. Please contact the clinic if your child will need to self-carry emergency medication.
SCHEDULED PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS
Unless the prescribing physician specifies that a medication must be given during school hours, the medication should be given at home. This will help to prevent student exposure to contagious illness in the clinic and student loss of classroom instruction minutes.

CHS9 Clinic Message
There are some changes we would like to make parents/guardians aware of as we get ready for our on- campus students.
Over the counter medications, including but not limited to, cough/cold medications, acetaminophen, ibuprofen, to treat symptoms that are also symptoms of COVID-19. Such as cough, sore throat, headache, muscle pain, and/or diarrhea will only be checked in and administered to students with a current healthcare provider note. Also, at this time we will not be administering nebulizer treatments during the school day. Parents/Guardians are strongly recommended to contact their student’s healthcare provider to obtain metered dose inhalers rather than nebulizer medications while at school.
Please refer to the road map to reopening for any questions you may have and as always please feel free to reach out to the clinic directly.
