CANUTILLO, Texas – The Canutillo Independent School District said it will start off the new school year on Aug. 3 with online classes, known as remote learning, for at least a month.

The school district cited "upward trends in (coronavirus) infection rates" in announcing its plans on Friday, which officials said places an emphasis on safety.

"The district will deliver instruction through remote platforms until Labor Day. By Monday, September 7, 2020, the district will have communicated to parents whether to keep with 100% remote learning or continue with the reopening plans," Canutillo ISD leaders said in a statement.

While the district noted "this plan is subject to change depending on future guidance from health officials," here's what has been unveiled for the re-opening, which school leaders said was put together after surveying parents, faculty and staff...

  • At the elementary level, parents can elect to send their children to school for 100% face-to-face instruction or they can select the 100% remote learning option.
  • Middle schools and CHS High School students may choose 100% remote learning or hybrid. The hybrid model will allow students to come into schools on certain days and remain at home on other days.
  • NWECHS parents will receive information about their schedule from the campus.

Under the re-opening plan, officials said "during the first week of school, campuses will offer small groups of students the opportunity to come to school, meet their teacher, practice social distancing and review the safety protocols."

Canutillo ISD also indicated that "campuses will disseminate further information regarding learning models and the opening week activity."

    1. What do you know? You don’t have kids. I though you were the king of licking the “experts” butts? Child psychologists and other education “experts” are saying kids need to get back to school. They need the socialization, they need their friends. I’ve been in education for 30 years and I agree. Get the kids back to school. More people will die from depression, suicide and loneliness than the democrats can ever hope the virus kills.

      1. Isn’t it the orange buffoon who has surrendered to the virus? I think the Democrats are trying to get a plan down to combat the virus, aren’t they? Isn’t that the argument? The orange buffoon won’t even wear a mask.

        1. Really? What have the Democrats accomplished? Nothing. Investigation after investigation. No results. And when it comes to the virus, all they’ve done is change course and change course. Make up a lie then defend then deny it. Over and over. No one knows anything about this virus except the Chines who developed it. Trump hasn’t surrendered to anything. You idiots keep falling right into his plan. He’s very calculated and he knows exactly what he’s doing. Fauci has already exposed himself as the fraud that he is and President Trump will continue to let them hang themselves. Draining the swamp brilliantly. And you suckers keep falling for it!
