School Closure Update 4-17-2020
Dear Brook Hill Family,
This morning, Friday, April 17th, Governor Greg Abbot ordered the statewide closure of schools for the remainder of the current academic year as part of Texas’ continued efforts to fight COVID-19.
Although we are grieved by this news, The Brook Hill School will comply with this order and continue Distance Learning through the end of the school year.
This is a great loss for our community, especially for our seniors, student athletes, and artists. Our students have worked tirelessly to prepare for these competitions, performances, and special occasions. Although we cannot celebrate their achievements through our traditional ceremonies, we are finalizing plans to honor our students’ hard work and recognize their accomplishments in a special way.
Despite everything, I remain confident in and grateful for the tireless efforts of our faculty and staff to continue providing a robust, comprehensive, quality, Christ-centered, college preparatory education through our Distance Learning platform. We have received an overwhelmingly positive response from you through our parent surveys, and are proud that our students continue to learn and are not regressing during this pandemic.
Most of all, I am grateful for you, our parents and students. Throughout this time of uncertainty, you have been the true success story. Your patience, diligence, and hard work are paying off, proving the resilience of the Brook Hill Family.
In Joel 2:25, the Lord says, “I will restore to you the years that the swarming locust has eaten.” This reminder of God’s faithfulness to His people is my prayer for all of us during this season. May He bless the work of your hands and comfort you in your time of need.
Next week, we will send further updates on our plans moving forward.
Head of School
