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.

Due to upward trends in infection rates, the district is adopting a conservative approach in the interest of safety. The Canutillo Independent School District will deliver instruction through remote platforms until Labor Day. By Monday, September 7, 2020, the district will have communicated to parents whether to keep with 100% remote learning or continue with our reopening plans.

  • Elementary: The two options elementary parents have is 100% remote or 100% face-to-face. Elementary schools do not have the capacity to implement a hybrid model alongside in person instruction and remote learning.
  • Middle School: The two options for secondary schools are 100% remote learning or 100% face-to-face.
  • Canutillo High School: The three options are 100% remote, 100% face to face or the hybrid model. The hybrid model will allow students to come into schools on certain days and remain at home on other days.
  • NWECHS parents will receive information about their schedule from the campus.

Reopening plans were developed with survey information from parents, faculty and staff. Safety was the first consideration in the district’s deliberations. Please note, that this plan is subject to change depending on future guidance from health officials.
