A Note from the Principal

Dear Bush Families,

Have a great weekend!

Summer Move A Possibility?

If you currently have plans to move over the summer please contact our registrar, Stacey Randall - (srandall@conroeisd.net or 936-709-1610). There will be a Summer Mover Form sent to you via your child. We ask that you complete it and send it back to school. If some of the information is not known, we can update via email as needed. This will help in planning for the next year. If you are a fourth-grade parent, and your child will not be attending Mitchell Intermediate, I will let Mitchell know of the possible summer move.

Summer GT Testing Referral Window

The referral window for summer Gifted and Talented testing will be open April 3-28. You may refer your student for summer testing during this time. If your student participated in the Spring testing (2nd Grade CogAT or Spring Testing), they may not participate in this round of testing.

Summer testing information:

Tuesday, May 30-Thursday June 1

8:00-11:00 AM at Bush Elementary

*Students must be present all three days to participate

If you are interested in having your student test during the summer, please pick up a referral form from the front office.

Bond Planning Committee Updates

Many parents have asked questions about the bond planning committee. I thought the

district's website could better answer the questions. Check it out: 2023 Bond Planning Committee

CISD Cars & Coffee

Join us for Conroe ISD’s first Cars & Coffee on Saturday, April 15, from 8:00-11:00 AM

at Woodforest Bank Stadium. Roll-in is from 7:30-8:00 AM. Food trucks and vendors on site. This free event is hosted by The Woodlands HS Automotive Enthusiasts Club.

Transportation Changes

Transportation changes must be made in writing before 2:00 PM. We cannot accept transportation changes by phone. To submit a transportation change, you may send a written note to the front office with the following information:

  • the date
  • your child's full name
  • homeroom teacher
  • bus number (if applicable)
  • your signature

If an emergency arises, you may send an email to bush@conroeisd.net. The e-mail must include all of the above information and must be received before 2:00 PM. If you submit a transportation change by email, it must go to the email address referenced above. Teachers do not check their email regularly throughout the day, so transportation changes should not be emailed directly to the teacher. Please send a new note for each day the change occurs; we cannot accept notes for multiple days or with multiple changes. District policy states that a student may only ride the bus they are registered to ride; students may not have a transportation change to ride a different bus.

Safety Information

The safety of our students and staff is of the utmost importance. Over the past decade, Conroe ISD has spent millions of dollars on a layered approach to campus safety including the installation of secure entrances and vestibules along with adding security cameras throughout our schools. Our greatest safety measure, however, is vigilance. Please report any suspicious activity or suspected dangers to the appropriate authorities. Anonymous reports may be made 24/7 to Conroe ISD’s KidChat hotline at 1-888-KidChat (543-2428) or through our new Anonymous Alerts app. Login: conroeisd
