EPISD announces district to reopen for some employees

Friday morning, El Paso Independent School District Superintendent Juan E. Cabrera announced that the COVID-19 District Disaster Closure that has been in place since March will end on June 6 for some District employees.

The decision means selected personnel will report back to on-site duty to help with the District’s response to the pandemic and other day-to-day operations while observing strict health guidelines.  However, the majority of employees will continue to work from home.

“The decision to end the District Disaster Closures was complex and made with the best interest of our students at heart and with all the precaution and care for our employees,” Cabrera said.

“It’s important to recognize, however, that the District offices and schools remain closed to the public as a way to protect both our employees and our community.”

The District is currently seeking input from parents regarding their attitudes on the re-opening of schools for the 2020-21 school year. EPISD officials added that they will announce plans for the start of classes in the fall as soon as possible.

Cabrera said the decision on which employees will be allowed to return for on-site duty will be made by his office and his leadership team. Supervisors will notify those employees of their status.

Those employees who report back to on-site duty will follow these health guidelines:

• Employees shall adhere to CDC, state and local guidelines relative to COVID-19 including but not limited to social distancing and wearing of face coverings
• Maintain six (6) feet of distance when encountering other
• Have a face covering available and wear at all times when in the vicinity of others
• Do not gather or congregate when encountering others
• Employees shall contact supervisors if experiencing COVID-19 symptoms and stay home.
• Employees who arrive with COVID-19 symptoms shall be separated from all others and sent home once they have identified any other individuals with whom they have come in contact with on site

EPISD employees will continue to prepare for the 2020-21 school year and the public can still reach employees on duty via email.
