By recommendation of the city public health department, Canutillo ISD is asking parents, if possible, to return or stay with remote instruction starting Monday, October 5 due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations in the El Paso area.
“We are committed to providing the best instructional arrangements possible in view of current circumstances,” Superintendent Dr. Pedro Galaviz said. “However, safety is our highest priority. The district will always take whatever actions that are deemed necessary to ensure the welfare of students and staff.”
The District will continue to offer in-person learning for whom it is necessary.
The public health department is advising school districts to not increase the number of students receiving in-person instruction.
The remote instruction recommendation may remain after October 19 if the upward trend in COVID-19 cases continues.
The District will continue to work with the public health department and monitor the number of COVID-19 cases in the region. Leaders remind every member of the community to do their part to keep everyone safe.
