In an effort to keep you informed, I wanted to let you know that one of our students was found to be in possession of a gun at the Ninth Grade Campus today. No threats were made against any students or the school, and we have no indication there was any intent to use the handgun while at school. This is a serious violation of the law and the Student Code of Conduct. While we are unable to comment specifically on student discipline due to privacy laws, this matter is being addressed accordingly.
The Conroe ISD Police Department along with our administrative team take these situations very seriously and do everything possible to make sure Conroe High School, our Ninth Grade Campus and Conroe ISD are safe.
