Notes from the School Nurse
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) requires a course of human growth and development to be given to all 5th & 6th grade students. This presentation will provide age appropriate information regarding the changes occurring in the growth and development of this age group. CISD utilizes the Proctor & Gamble series “Always Changing.” There are separate videos for boys and girls.
This year the presentations will be held virtually. Parents may view the appropriate video with their student and use the parent resources provided on the website. Click on the link below and scroll down to the appropriate video for your student (girl or boy).
Parents may also opt to not have their student view the presentation.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the school nurse at 281-465-3200.

Parents and students,
Our hope is to create a quality memory book for your kiddos similar to the ones in the past BUT…..we really need your help!! To make this the best book ever we are utilizing the Balfour Image Share mobile device app to allow you and your kiddo to submit pics directly to the yearbook throughout the year. In our first themed request, we would like to see the following:
Pics of your first day of school
Pics of you working in your virtual learning space
Pics of your student dressed up this week for Red Ribbon Week
We will organize the pics and try to make a spread highlighting these aspects of student life for 2021. To use the app go to the app store and download “Balfour Image Share” to your device and register your account. Please use our code, 125318.

Join me in earning cash for our school by using the Box Tops app. It’s an easy way to make a difference. All you have to do is buy Box Tops participating products (like Cheerios!) and scan your grocery receipt. Box Tops are worth $.10 each and they add up fast! Twice a year, our school receives a check to help pay for whatever we need - equipment, supplies or experiences the kids love!

RAINY DAY DISMISSAL PROCEDURES
Rainy/Cold Day Dismissal
If your student is a walker/biker they will be expected to walk or ride their bike on rainy days, unless you and your child have an alternate plan in place. If you choose for your child to be a car-rider on rainy days it is not necessary to complete a transportation change form.
In the case of severe weather (thunderstorms, lightening, blizzard) we may hold walkers/bikers until we feel it is safe for them to walk or ride home. If that does occur we will contact the parent to inform them of the delay. Bus transportation will run as scheduled.
