As a District, we are heartbroken over the recent tragedy in Santa Fe ISD. The safety of our students and staff is of the utmost importance. The Conroe ISD Police Department will have an increased presence across the District as we enter our last weeks of school. Our campuses also continue to review safety plans and procedures in an effort to prevent or respond to events such as this. 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).
Over the past decade, the District 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. Conroe ISD is proud to have the third largest police department in Montgomery County whose mission is to protect the District’s students, employees, and properties. The Conroe ISD Police Department also regularly provides active shooter training to our officers as well as other local law enforcement agencies to better prepare our law enforcement community for an integrated response. Conroe ISD is diligent in providing a safe learning environment every day.
