Counseling Connection

Eastwood Knolls International School

Dear Parents and Guardians,

These times may feel uncomfortable. Getting comfortable with virtual learning may feel unfamiliar and strange. We are here to support you and your child through whatever challenges may arise. Please reach out to your counselor should you have any questions or concerns. We are available by phone, and are also available to meet with students and parents through video conference. Please note that when we make contact with you, the phone number may show up as private or unavailable phone number. We miss you!


Mrs. Cabral K-5 mcabral6@yisd.net 915-434-4407

Practicing Mindfulness

There's a lot of research out there that suggests that taking a few minutes every morning to clear your mind and breathe deeply helps to reduce stress. These are traumatic times, and meditation can help kids (and grownups) to start the day with calm.

Google Classroom

We are working on getting Google Classrooms up and running for all of our students. In these classrooms we will provide different strategies and information for students. It is also an easy way to stay connected. There will also be engaging lessons that we will invite students to participate in. Please have your child join our Google Classroom by logging in to my.yisd.net. Please contact either counselor for the classroom codes.


Please clink on the link on the top of our page Ysleta Parent@Home to get more information on how to login to the google classroom.

YISD Breakfast and Lunch Procedures

To help minimize the impact to YISD families during the weeks of school closure, select campuses will offer weekday breakfast and lunch meals to school-aged children between ages 1-18 on a drive-through basis. Vehicles will be allowed to pull up to the campuses listed below from 7:30 to 10:30 a.m. and receive both breakfast and lunch meals for children inside the vehicle.

As always, the district will continue to work closely with city and county health officials, and monitor any developments regarding COVID-19 as it relates to the Ysleta Independent School District.


UPDATED protocol & new sites: Due to new state regulations, those who drive up to our 18 select sites to receive curbside delivery of breakfast and lunch meals for their children DO NOT need to have the children inside the car effective Monday, March 30. Drivers can pull into the participating schools, tell workers how many children's meals they need, and those meals will be provided regardless of the vehicle's passengers. We hope this helps ease any difficulties you may have experienced during the school closures, and we encourage everyone to stay safe and healthy at home. Thank you for your support and understanding.


The sites are: Capistrano ES, Constance Hulbert ES, Desertaire ES, REL Washington ES, Bel Air MS, Del Valle MS, Parkland MS, Bel Air HS, Del Valle HS, Eastwood HS, Hanks HS, Parkland HS, Riverside HS, & Ysleta HS. New sites include: Eastwood MS, Hacienda Heights IS, Ramona ES, & Tierra Del Sol ES. #THEDISTRICTcares
