Conroe High School Tiger Tracks

Hello Conroe Tiger Families,

We are looking forward to welcoming our students who have chosen In-Person/Traditional Learning during our Ramp Up next week! If you have a Chromebook or laptop, please have your student bring it to school with them to use in the classroom. This will help us to greatly reduce the amount of paper passed between student and teacher, in an effort to help keep them safe. If we issued you a Chromebook, please plan for your student to keep the computer in their backpack, charge it at home and bring it back with them to school each day.


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. This is in an effort to limit the number of people that touch an item and increase the possibility of exposure.


Here is some additional information to help you and your student prepare for next week:


Mask/ID Requirement - All students and staff will be required to properly wear a mask while in the building and riding school buses. The mask will follow the same guidelines for clothing per the CISD Student Code of Conduct. If your student is not accustomed to wearing a mask, we ask that you encourage them to practice now and get adjusted to it. In addition to wearing a mask, students will be required to wear the student ID/meal cards. We will pass out student ID/meal cards to your student during our Ramp Up week of August 31st - September 3rd. The students will receive a lanyard to assist in properly wearing the ID/meal card. Students must use this card to purchase their meals at school. Our cafeteria has adopted a touch-less payment system and will need to scan the card for each meal. Parents are encouraged to pre-load lunch money or bring the lunch money to school in an envelope with the student’s name and ID number on it.


Health Screening -Addition to wearing cloth face coverings, social distancing, washing hands, and regular cleaning and disinfecting of frequently touched surfaces, an essential element in helping slow the spread of COVID-19 at school is each parent’s commitment to screening their child daily for symptoms. Parents are also asked to keep any student exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19 at home and to notify the campus. Please review the following information and be sure to keep your child at home if you answer “yes” to one of the questions and notify the school.


COVID-19 Screening Questions:


1. Do you currently have a temperature at or above 100.0 F. or any of the following symptoms that are not normal for you?

a. Loss of taste or smell

b. Sore throat

c. Fatigue

d. Chills or shaking with chills

e. Congestion or runny nose

f. Significant muscle pain or body aches

g. New uncontrolled cough that causes difficulty breathing or for individuals with a chronic allergic/asthmatic cough, a change in your cough from baseline

h. Diarrhea, vomiting, or abdominal pain

i. New onset of severe headache

j. Known close contact with a person who is lab confirmed to have COVID-19


2. Are you waiting for a COVID-19 test results due to symptoms that began less than 10 day ago?


Visitors - All campuses are closed to visitors at this time to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Parent/teacher conferences, ARDS, 504 meetings, etc. will be held virtually or by telephone when possible.


We can not wait to see more students back on campus this week. Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns: contactchs@conroeisd.net or contactchs9@conroeisd.net . We are happy to help and support our Conroe Tiger Families any way we can!


With Tiger Pride,

Tasha Smith

Principal, Conroe High School

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.


Student drivers who have registered for parking have been emailed a temporary spot to park in until spots are assigned.

Please have your student take a pictures or copy their schedule from Student Access. We will have stations set up for students to get a copy of their schedule. There will be staff members to help you find your way throughout the building.


We will have a staggered dismissal this week beginning at 2:25 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.


Students will receive a printed copy of their schedules in their first period class to follow for the remainder of the day. There will be maps and staff members to help you find your way throughout the building.


Our day concludes at 2:35. We will have a staggered dismissal to assist with social distancing.


Parents of all Freshmen are encouraged to view and visit their student’s counselor canvas page on Monday, August 31st. The freshmen counselors have created a video for parents and students to watch. This will give you some great academic information. Each counselor will have two live Zoom sessions to answer any questions that you may have regarding the presentation. The login information and time schedules are found on your student’s counselor page.

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.


OVER-THE-COUNTER MEDICATIONS

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.

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.
