Dear Spartan Families

Spartan Parents,

We are now a week into the second semester, and very soon we will be transitioning into face-to-face learning with our students. We continue to thank you for your help and dedication to our students. As we continue with instruction your children will be meeting with their teachers to review their data and reflect on their areas of strength and area of growth. Please have conversations with your children about their data.

Continue to "Ride The Wave."

We thank you and appreciate all that you do.

God bless all of you and your families.

School Principal
Claudia Poblano

HAC Progress Report

Please Click On The Image For Current Hospitalization Rate

We did it! Hospitalization rates were below 20% for seven consecutive days, putting us into the orange zone. The City of El Paso Department of Public Health has made a recommendation for our school to reopen after January 18th. Students who have opted to return to school in person are projected to do so on January 25th. The Hub will be open for students currently attending beginning January 6-22.

As a reminder, parents and community members can monitor the daily COVID-19 hospitalization rate on our website. The page can be accessed by visiting www.yisd.net and scrolling down to the YISD Spotlight section, then clicking on the “COVID-19 Activity Level” icon. The metrics Ysleta ISD and Region 19 are using are listed under the “Activity Level Indicators” chart.

Message From Nurse Papke:

Do you know what "Close Contact" means?

Close Contact

Someone who was within 6 feet of an infected person for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period*

This period can start from 2 days before illness onset (or, for asymptomatic patients, 2 days prior to test specimen collection) until the time the patient is isolated.

Even if you feel well now, it is possible that you are also infected. It can take 2-14 days to show symptoms, which is why you need to stay home and separate yourself from others in your home as much as possible.

If you have COVID or may have been exposed to COVID, it is important to know who may have been in close contact with you.

Check the following pdf for high-risk or low-risk close contact.
