Message from Mrs. Espindola, Counselor

I hope and pray that every single one of you are safe and humble during these difficult times we are all experiencing. If you are having difficulty with water or electric utilities these resources may help you. I also have attached information on food banks for El Paso.

The Ysleta Independent School District is delaying in-person Face-to-Face Learning at campuses. In accordance with the Region 19 Prevention and Mitigation plan, our area remains in the Red Zone, which means hospitalization rates are at 20% or higher.

Once the El Paso area begins experiencing lower COVID-19 hospitalization levels over a course of 7-14 days, the district’s status may be downgraded.

Schools will open the Monday after we fall below the Red Zone.

As a reminder, employees, parents, and community members can monitor the daily COVID-19 hospitalization rate on our website. The page can be accessed by visiting 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.
