Canutillo ISD will be revising our masking guidance consistent with both the governor’s executive order and recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).  Starting June 5, masks will be optional but strongly encouraged inside school district buildings and outdoors. For individuals who are not fully vaccinated or have weakened immune systems, masking and social distancing are recommended. As we have done since the beginning of the pandemic, we will continue to monitor conditions and act accordingly in line with the guidance of the CDC and state officials. 
Our friends at the Paso del Norte Community Foundation want us to share with you about the EP Rent Help program. The City of El Paso and the County of El Paso have allocated $13.08 million in funding from the Federal Cares Act to provide rental assistance to landlords of residential rental properties for tenants that are experiencing economic hardship as a result of COVID-19. Tenants may apply starting April 22. The rental assistance program will remain open until all rental assistance funding has been pledged. To avoid eviction, please do not delay in submitting your application. To apply, visit

Have a great weekend!
