Last week the Governor of Texas closed schools for the remainder of the 2019/20 school year. In these unprecedented times, I understand how it is he came to his decision. Respecting human life, especially the life of our children and elderly, has been of the utmost importance during these times, and Grace Prep has gladly followed the lead of our civil authorities. These uncharted waters have caused us to adapt and overcome many new and unforeseen obstacles. Thank you for your patience and flexibility. Your faithfulness to our school has been overwhelming; it is because of your support and love that we will make it through to the other side of this pandemic. I am confident that we will come out stronger in the end.
Moving forward, I want to begin to bring closure to the 2019/20 school year. Below are some details and dates that you need to be aware of. This information will help guide you through the next few weeks and prepare you for the 2020/21 school year. Because of the diligence and thoughtfulness of our staff and faculty, you will be pleased to know the majority of content has been taught to your child(ren) this year. Though we will miss days of fun, such as field day, field trips, class parties, and other activities, your child has received the best academic instruction possible in light of our circumstances. This diligence has allowed us to establish the following schedule:
