Bond projects alter student drop-offs

The El Paso Independent School District is excited to start the Bond 2016 construction projects at Burges High School. To help you stay up to date on the construction, we would like to share the following information with you:

* The EPISD Board of Trustees has approved Banes General Contractors Inc. as the general contractor for the Bond 2016 projects at Burges. 

* Fencing is being installed over Spring Break in order to separate pedestrian and vehicular traffic from construction. Both the main campus parking lot and tennis court area in the back of the campus have been fenced off. Please reference the construction map provided on the Burges campus website for information on vehicular and pedestrian pathways.

* The first phase of the Bond 2016 project includes the demolition of the speech room and the construction of a new two-story building addition, which will take place from March 2019 to July 2020 in the parking lot facing Edgemere Blvd.

For more information regarding the scope of work for the bond 2016 project at Burges, or to see site plans and renderings, please visit our website at If you have any questions regarding construction on the Burges campus, please feel free to reach out to Margaux Dalbin at

On behalf of the EPISD Bond 2016 team, thank you for your patience as we work to improve Burges High’s facilities.
