EHS Response to Harvey
Dear EHS Students and Parents,
I pray that the storm recovery continues to proceed as well as possible for you and your families. Thankfully, all in our community remain healthy. Please continue to make use of the resources we've posted on the web page EHS Response to Harvey if you have assets to contribute to the recovery or needs that remain unmet.
- Many of you have asked about makeup days. Please know that we continue to work with our accrediting body as to whether we will need makeup days, but do know that the Columbus Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas holidays will proceed as planned.
- For the foreseeable future we will host classes from our neighboring Post Oak School in the Convent and B Building while they recover from the recent flooding on their campus. Details will be forthcoming through School email, but please do take extra care when driving on and around the ellipse and parking garage.
Thank you for remaining as flexible and as patient as possible with yourselves, your friends and neighbors, and our School in the coming weeks. All of us are working toward the same end, and I am certain there will be a range of opinions as to the best means to that end. Please communicate directly with me via email if you wish to discuss any aspect of this plan, so that our faculty and staff may continue to focus on ensuring that the coming weeks are the best they can be for our students.
Please consider joining us in a prayer from the Book of Common Prayer:
Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings with your most gracious favor, and further us with your continual help; that in all our works begun, continued, and ended in you, we may glorify your holy name, and finally, by your mercy, obtain everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord.
We are here, we stand together, and we will continue to support each other as we rebuild.
Head of School
