We are excited to be welcoming back our children and families next week! ๐Ÿ˜ The virtual fall semester is in full swing with only three months left in a year of relentless challenges and creative adaptations! Our teachers are providing online curriculum. Tutors are Zooming. Parent education classes are happening virtually. Counselors are holding therapy sessions over the phone. Administrators are meeting the financial and medical needs of families. Even though this is difficult, everyone is working hard and doing their part to be the hands and feet of God!๐Ÿ’•

This school year is proving to be unique, but we are thrilled to welcome back all of our precious children in-person on October 19. While the sounds of kids will once again be heard through our hallways, we will be vigilant with safety precautions by following CDC guidelines. This means that temperatures will be taken at the door, masks must be worn, and desks and surfaces will be cleaned daily. Children will be assigned cohorts and will remain with their peers throughout the day. Additionally, parents and visitors will not be permitted to enter the building. This means that all pick-ups and drop-offs take place in our back parking lot and will be strictly monitored by staff to ensure safety.

This pandemic is an evolving story, and our administration is paying close attention while attempting to provide a seamless transition from distance learning to in-person learning. When the children return to our campus, the health and safety of our community is the priority, and if the COVID-19 threat continues, we will adjust plans accordingly. Nehemiah will always be a safe haven for our children. Motivate, equip and inspire is more than just our motto. Itโ€™s a commitment that staff and volunteers make to vulnerable Houston children every day. We are optimistic with faith that our students and families will continue to learn, grow and succeed. ๐Ÿ’ฏ

As the laughter and joy of children fill our classrooms again, we ask that you prayerfully consider donating to Nehemiah. Our families are still struggling, but with your support, we plan to overcome! We know that God will provide for these precious lives in this crucial time of need. Please join us in prayer for the safety and well-being of all the children in our care. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ
