El Paso Independent School District students and staff could know by the end of Monday if they will soon return to the classroom.

According to a tweet sent by El Paso ISD on Thursday, district leaders will meet Monday.

Most students and staff at school districts in the El Paso area have been learning remotely since March 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Most school districts are following a “safe zones” reopening plan to determine when campuses will open again.

El Paso is currently in the “orange zone,” which means schools can resume on-campus instruction.

As of Monday, the hospitalization rate in El Paso is at 17 percent.

Once the rate is below 20 percent students can return to class.

KFOX14 spoke with two parents, virtually about the possibility of returning to campus.

“He doesn’t want to go back. I don’t want him to either,” said mother Felicia Wooten.

“I want him back in school,” said mother Tiffany Dintelman. “I think that we are passed due for it.”

Ysleta Independent School District teachers will return on Wednesday and students will return January 11.

Teachers of San Elizario School District return to school Monday, January 4 and San Elizario ISD students return on Wednesday.

Fabens Independent School District officials say students will be able to back to the classroom but a date was not provided.

Socorro and Canutillo school districts have yet to make any decision for its staff and students.
