EPISD Superintendent Releases Statement on Aid to Possible Evacuees in El Paso

Statement from EPISD and Superintendent Juan E. Cabrera regarding aid to Hurricane Harvey evacuees in El Paso:

The El Paso Independent School District stands ready to aid in the relief of evacuees impacted by Hurricane Harvey coming into the El Paso region.

“EPISD and El Paso have a strong tradition of service and humanitarian aid, and our schools and employees are ready to do their part in helping displaced Texans,” Cabrera said. “We’ve taught our students to lead with character, and now it’s our turn show what this means. EPISD will lend a hand and help those affected by Harvey during their toughest time.”

Superintendent Juan Cabrera has spoken with Mayor Dee Margo and City Manager Tommy Gonzalez to offer education and housing services to any children and families that arrive in El Paso as a result of the evacuation.

Cabrera said the District is ready to provide buses for the transportation of families and hire certified substitutes to provide instructional services to displaced school-aged children.
