On April 17 Gov. Abbott announced that Texas public and private schools are officially closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. This means Regents Academy will continue with distance learning until the end of the school year.
I know this is not what we had hoped and that many of us will be tempted to be downcast or frustrated. Certainly, it’s hard news to hear that our children and teachers won’t be able to be together before the end of the school year. But I want to encourage us all to trust the Lord and, in the words of St. Paul, “be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord” (1 Cor 15:58).
Keep an eye on your inbox in the days ahead. We will share more details about the coming weeks and the end of the school year as the time approaches. After spring break we settled in for a time of distance learning, and now that time is being extended. Let’s finish the year strong as a school family. Though we are separated by space and geography, we are not divided in purpose or resolve. We will work together to give our children a classical and Christ-centered education. And let’s reach out to one another, pray for each other, and encourage our friends.
I miss seeing you all and look forward to seeing you again! Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me, Mr. V, or Mrs. Henry if you have questions or concerns.
Wishing you health and strength for the days ahead,
David Bryant, Headmaster
