Holiday message from Interim Superintendent Vince Sheffield

Vince Sheffield

Dear EPISD Team, 

As we head into a much-deserved winter break, I want to take the opportunity to express my gratitude for the commitment you have made not only to the students of El Paso but also our community, during this most challenging of years. I am personally heading into the break filled with hope that it will provide our students and you the rest needed to finish the school year strong – literally and figuratively.

The holiday season provides time to reflect on the successes of the 12 preceding months. I invite you to continue this tradition, as there is much to celebrate! 

Every single one of you, through your special contributions, made 2020 a success. While it may be difficult for some to consider 2020 a success, one lesson we learned that will help us build a stronger future for our students, each other and the El Paso community is that together we can get through anything. 

Let’s celebrate the heart, strength and compassion each of you has demonstrated. This period has underscored the importance of positive relationships and human kindness. 

As we head into 2021, let’s continue to support each other in our commitment to safety and student success. The best is yet to come! 

Have a restful, safe and happy Winter Break. See you in January!

Vince Sheffield,

Interim Superintendent


Excellence Always!
