The EPISD Council of PTAs has been monitoring the coronavirus updates from all authorities and has tried to update our members via our Facebook page.  We highly encourage you to follow us on our Facebook Page for the most up-to-date information.

EPISD Council of PTAs is working with Texas PTA and all authorities to follow the guidelines recommended for coronavirus.  As of today, all schools in El Paso are cancelled until April 6, 2020.  Please note that everything is fluid and things are subject to change. We encourage you to keep abreast of the information by checking the resource links below.  

It is our Texas PTA mission to make every child’s potential a reality by engaging and empowering families and communities to advocate for all children. We value your health, safety, and want what is best for you, your family, and your local school campuses.  We ask that you take the coronavirus seriously and adhere to the guidelines set by the authorities.  Together we can help slow the spread. 


Our EPISD Council of PTAs General Meeting that was originally slated for April 1 is currently postponed until further notice.  All of our deadlines for awards are on hold until further notice.  Our May Installation Luncheon may be subject to change as per local, state, and federal authorities.  All PTAs should be on hold during closures and try to stay healthy by following CDC guidelines for coronavirus. PTAs if you have  emergent business that needs to take place please refer to the advice from Texas PTA that was emailed to you. 

As always the EPISD Council of PTAs is here to help all local PTAs in EPISD by providing support, guidance, important information, and inspiration. Should you and your PTA ever need any help please reach out to us by emailing episdcouncilofptas@gmail.com or by clicking on our names  on the left for direct questions.  We are here to help!
