Fabens Independent School District announced that their official first day of school will be August 10 and in keeping in line with current COVID-19 emergency orders as well as other area districts, students at Fabens ISD will begin with online classes until at least September 8.

After the first four weeks of online classes at Fabens ISD, parents can determine if they feel it is best for their children to continue with remote instruction or return to their campus for in person learning.  Families can state their learning preference by taking a survey which has already been made available.

In order to facilitate remote learning for the first four weeks of school, Fabens ISD has ordered laptops for all of their students in grades PK through 12 although the high demand for technological learning devices may result in a delay in shipment some districts.  With this in mind, Canutillo ISD showed their neighborly spirit during this time by donating laptops to Fabens and other area school districts in need.

While it is certain, at least as of today, that the earliest students can resume in person classes in the El Paso area is right after Labor Day, TEA recently announced that schools can extend online learning with the approval of each district’s school board.  As of today, it looks like area learning agencies plan to open their classrooms to students on September 8 for those parents wishing to send their kids to school.
