Our hearts go out to all those affected by the flooding in our state, and especially to those within our school family. I have already heard reports from families who have suffered loss of property, some to a catastrophic degree. Let’s hold one another, our friends and neighbors, and especially the men and women of various emergency response units in prayer as our city and state recover from the devastating rains.
Given the images and reports on the news, resuming school is obviously lower on the priority list right now than simply staying safe and recovering from damage. The school itself, as I’m told, has suffered minimal damage comparative to other churches, schools, businesses, and homes in the area. But roadways around the school and throughout the city are littered with debris and compromised by the foundational damage done by the flood waters.
In light of the situation, we will consider Covenant closed for as long as the city and county remain under a State of Emergency order. Please keep informed through the school website, emails, Facebook page, and WIS TV as you are able.
May the Lord hold you and keep you and be your strong tower.
