COVID-19 Response

Canutillo ISD continues to monitor the spread of COVID-19, the respiratory illness caused by a novel (new) coronavirus. The District receives regular updates and guidance from Texas Governor Greg Abbott, Texas Education Agency Commissioner Mike Morath and other local, state and federal agencies regarding response, prevention and mitigation efforts. This direction has changed repeatedly over the last several months and will continue to evolve based on COVID-19 conditions across the state and our local community.

Remote instruction continues to be an option for all students and parents. Though we encourage parents to weigh the current pandemic data and consider remote learning if possible, those who selected in-person instruction for the first 9-week grading period or have extenuating circumstances, may attend in-person. Contact your school for specific information.

Our teachers have also been given the option to teach remotely or from the classroom to protect their safety, when they are not being rotated in to support in-person learning. Therefore, students attending in-person instruction at a campus will either receive in-classroom instruction with their teacher physically present, or receive instruction remotely from their teacher via learning pods.

Canutillo operates not only following local policy but also adhering to state and federal mandates, which are often connected to funding. Regardless of the decisions made in Washington DC and Austin, Canutillo ISD planned ahead knowing this pandemic would challenge the learning environment for our students. To support successful remote instruction, the district invested over $6.9 million to launch Canutillo Connect which provides universal internet connectivity and 1:1 with devices for every student. Canutillo ISD will continue to provide a high quality education while taking the necessary actions to protect the health and safety of all community members - our highest priority.

We look forward to the day when we can return to a sense of normalcy and campus life. To reach this goal, we must all continue to do our part in keeping each other safe. Wear your mask, wash your hands, and watch your distance. Please visit the district’s website and social media for the most current updates.
