School Lunch Information

Thursday, October 1, Conroe ISD began offering FREE breakfast and lunch to ALL In-Person and Remote/Online students as well as children ages 18 and younger in the community. Students in Remote/Online Instruction and children 18 and younger who are not attending school on campus will pick up free meals curbside on Tuesday and Thursday from 10 AM - 12 PM at Stockton Junior High. Parents must present an approved form of ID for any child not present in the vehicle.

Car Rider Line Guidelines

Thank you for your patience as we are continuing to perfect our car rider line procedures. Thank you for being aware of where the end of the line is. Cars that join the line in the middle will not have their student information entered in the system, and students will not be waiting at the cone. The process is much more efficient when everyone does their part.


Please also remember that in school zones, all drivers are prohibited from texting and using handheld devices while driving. This includes the car rider line. Please help us keep our children safe by staying off of your cell phone.

Student Holiday

Students will not attend school on Friday, October 9th or Monday, October 12th in observance of Columbus Day.

Suggestion Box

We would love the input of our teachers, staff, parents, students, and community members on how to improve our campus. With this in mind we have created a virtual Suggestion Box. The input can be completely anonymous or you can include your name and email address. You can find the link below. We will also be including this link in the Houston Highlights for our families.
