Update from Conroe ISD: Salute to Education, Masks and YouTube Recap

Salute to Education

Last night, Conroe ISD celebrated employees and community members in its annual Salute to Education. Congratulations to our 2021 Teachers of the Year who were named during this virtual event! Eden Young from Caney Creek High School was named Secondary Teacher of the Year, and Theresa Stewart from Runyan Elementary was named Elementary Teacher of the Year! Anyone who missed last night’s Salute to Education can view it here or by searching the District’s YouTube channel.

Mask Update: Effective June 1

Masks will be recommended, but optional, for students and staff* in Conroe ISD facilities starting on June 1st. The District will continue to monitor the presence of COVID-19 in the community, the county vaccination rate, and the guidance from public health officials. If conditions remain stable or improve throughout the summer, we look forward to masks also being optional for the 2021-2022 school year. The District’s safety protocols will continue to be based on the most updated information to provide safe and healthy learning environments for our students and keep our schools open.

*Staff will receive additional guidance in a separate communication.
