YISD Launches Back to School Website as Resource for Parents
With all of the changes in instruction required by the COVID-19 pandemic, school districts all across the state have had to make sure they’re doing what they can to keep parents informed of all the learning adjustments. With that in mind, the Ysleta Independent School District has launched a website specifically designed to keep families up to date on what their child’s school experience will be in the Fall.
By going to www.yisd.net/backtoshool, YISD parents and student can access resources and FAQ’s on things such as guidance from local, state, and national learning agencies, safety plans, as well as campus and classroom operations for once students are allowed to physically return.
There is even a video that will take you through a day in the life of a student receiving their education in the classroom this year. The video will take you through what to expect from the moment the student gets on the bus to what transition periods and social distancing will look like and even the procedures for on campus visitors.
If any YISD families are still on the fence as to whether they want to sign up their child for in class or online instruction for the first nine weeks of the school year, information on both learning models can be found on the website as well.
Information that I suspect will be of particular importance to YISD families is the breakdown of the health response stages. These have been broken down into three color-coded activity levels (green, yellow, and red) and will specify how each particular level corresponds to in person instruction.
YISD, like other districts in the area, will start off the school year with online classes for all of their students until after Labor Day as a result of the current health order in effect. As of September 8, parents may decide to continue with remote instruction or opt to physically send their children to school.
For more information, visit www.yisd.net/backtoschool. YISD plans to update that page every Friday.
