Conroe High School Tiger Tracks
September 20, 2020
Hello Conroe Tiger Families,
We had a great first full week of school to end the first 6-weeks of our 2020-2021 school year! We know everyone is still trying to get in a routine and we appreciate you supporting our students and staff! If your child is a virtual student please make sure they continue to be active in each course on the scheduled day. Tiger Day (1st-7th Period), Gold Day (1,3,5,7) and White Day (2,4,5,6). We have included the calendar below.
We highly recommend you visiting our Roadmap to Reopening website if you have not already done so. There is a lot of valuable information for our CISD Families. We would like to remind you of our protocols should we be notified of a positive COVID-19 case:
If a positive case is identified for a school participant (student or employee), the District will identify and notify any individuals who had regular or close contact with the affected participant. This may include the entire class (students, teachers, staff). These individuals will be required to quarantine for 14 days before returning to in-person school.
If a positive case is identified in a campus or District facility, all campus and/or facility participants will receive written notification.
Health Services will notify the local health department of any positive case(s).
Here are a few additional updates and reminders:
School Pictures - Please be sure to see the schedule below to confirm the day your child will be taking pictures. We want to be sure all of our students are included in the yearbook so if your child is a virtual student please be sure to see the time they can come to campus to take their picture or schedule a time at the studio.
Free/Reduced Lunch - If your child is eligible for fee or reduced lunch, these benefits are scheduled to end on September 29th. You will need to reapply so there is no lapse in receiving this benefit: My School Apps
Mask/Student ID Requirement - Students are required to wear a face covering at all times. This includes while riding the bus, on campus during the school day and at after school events. If your child’s mask breaks we are able to supply them with a mask for the day. Please make sure your child remembers to bring their student id daily. Temporary ID’s are $1 and replacement ID is $5.
Dropping Off Items- Please note, lunches or items left at home may not be dropped off. If your child forgets their lunch, you can place funds on their lunch account at My School Bucks or they will be able to charge a lunch. If a special circumstance exists, please contact your child's assistant principal. If your child forgets a school related item, please have them bring it the next day. Students are encouraged to bring their own water bottles or drinking containers with lids. Both the Ninth grade and Main Campus have water bottle refilling stations. Thank you for your cooperation as we are doing our best to keep our students and staff healthy and safe!
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, by 8 AM. 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.
Athletic Events - This year our capacity will be limited. Event tickets will be exclusively sold online for ALL athletic events. Please visit this website for more information and to purchase tickets: https://apps.conroeisd.net/EventTickets/Default.aspx

Important Information For Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors
The building will open at 6:45 for students to enter. If you drop your students off before then please know they may not be supervised. Parents that will be dropping off their students, DO NOT drop your student off on Hwy 105! You can either drop off in the front of the building or in the Moorhead Stadium Visitor Parking lot. 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
If your first period class takes place at the Main Campus, you will need to report there. A shuttle bus will bring you back to the Ninth Grade Campus at the conclusion of first period. Administrators at CHS Main will assist you in getting on the shuttle bus. If your seventh period class takes place at the Main Campus, you will need to leave to go home from the Main Campus. There is not a shuttle bus that will return you to the Ninth Grade Campus at the end of the day.
Parents that will be dropping off their freshmen at the Ninth Grade Campus should utilize the drop of lanes identified as “Student Drop Off” directly off Sgt. Holcomb Blvd. Do NOT use the intersection marked with the newly installed traffic signal. There is a clearly visible sign that will direct you to the right side of the drop off loop. Once car riders or walkers enter the building, they will report to the cafeteria. Staff members will be present to direct you to the cafeteria and then the location of your first period class.
Students that will arrive by bus will enter the building and go to the gymnasium. Staff members will be there to help you find the gym, breakfast, and then the location of your first period class.
Please remember that our day begins much earlier than your previous junior high schedule. The building will be available for you to enter at 6:45 AM. Our first period class begins at 7:16.
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.
MEDICATION DROP OFF:
We will be having a medication drop off done in the main entrance foyer by last name, Tuesday 8/25 7am-9am and 1pm-3pm with the last names beginning A-K, Wednesday 8/26 7am-9am and 1pm-3pm with last names L-Z, and Thursday 8/27 from 2pm-5pm for anyone who was not able to make the previous times.
