Parenting with Love and Logic

CISD parents are invited to take our Parenting with Love and Logic course for free!  The class at BB Rice has already started, but they are willing to take parents late.  


New Late Bus Policy

A message from CONROE HIGH SCHOOL AND 9TH GRADE
To parents of CHS-9 students,

Hello!  I hope everyone had a great time during our Winter Break.  This week has gone well with students quickly settling back into their school routine.  I am writing this letter to inform you of a change in our late bus policy both here at CHS-9 and at CHS-Main.  The new policy will go into effect Monday, January 13, 2014.  In order to try to standardize late bus runs, we are piloting a “metro” bus format for our late buses.  After several lengthy discussions with our transportation department we believe that this new system will get students home quicker and on a much more regular schedule.  The details of this new system are as follows:
  1. Transportation has developed satellite stops much like the bus stops a metro bus system uses.
  2. These satellite stops are not intended to be within a short walk to each student’s home, but more of a central place where parents may pick up their children without having to drive all the way to campus.
  3. All students have been assigned a late bus route and a specific stop. This information is available online. A summary of all stops has been provided with this letter.
  4. Late bus routes will utilize a color system (Blue route, Red route, Orange route, etc.).
  5. When a student needs to ride a late bus, school personnel will print a late bus pass directly from CISD’s information system. The student’s route color and satellite stop information will be automatically printed on this pass. The student will be expected to ride their assigned bus and to get off at the assigned stop. Drivers will not be allowed to add or modify any stops on the list.
  6. All satellite stops have been chosen for their safety features (large parking lot for waiting parents, well lit, public place, etc.).
  7. Buses will run their route every day in the same order, in the same manner as a metro bus. This will help standardize arrival times, saving parents excessive waiting time.
Remember, if your student does not ride a late bus, there will be no change whatsoever to their day.  Students that do ride late buses will be dropped off only at pre-determined satellite stops with bus arrival times becoming much more predictable.
I want to use this letter to let everyone know how much we, the faculty and staff here at CHS-9, appreciate your help and support in creating and growing this new campus.  I know it is already a great place for freshmen to be and it will only continue to get better as we adjust and tweak our systems and programs to better suit everyone’s needs.

Sincerely,

Jeff Stichler
Principal, Conroe Ninth Grade Campus
