• Ysleta Independent School District  


    The health and safety of our students is always our top priority at Ysleta ISD. When issues of concern are brought to our attention, we feel it is important to share them with you. Given that we are heading into the cold and flu season, the additional precautions that YISD is taking will also go the extra mile toward minimizing the spread of germs and illnesses in general. School nurses continue to use screening processes for communicable diseases per local, state, and federal guidelines. Visit this site often for health updates.

    Generally, the presentations are given to 5th and 6th graders but can also be given to the 4th graders along with the Boy/Girl packets that contain deodorant.

    The SHAC approves the use of these videos and respectfully recommends the following:
    1. Strongly encourage parental participation; offer parents the opportunity to preview the materials.
    2. This program be taught during regular school hours to grades 4-6.
    3. Require Campus Administrators to be familiar with the content before being shown to students.
    4. The campus nurse is the campus coordinator for the Growth and Development classes.
    5. Ensure the collection of the District parent permission forms. Provide an alternative location for students not participating.
