EL PASO, Texas — The Ysleta Independent School District announced Sunday that it would now extend time off for students until April 6 due to concerns about the coronavirus.

That means students in district will have three weeks off from classes when spring break begins Monday.

Superintendent Xavier De La Torre said he continues monitoring developments along with health officials and would determine if the if any further closure extension is needed.

During the added weeks off, officials said ten Ysleta ISD schools would continue to offer weekday breakfast and lunch meals to school-aged children on a drive-by basis.
