Same Storm, Different Boats
I saw a post that stated with COVID and the Winter Storm that we are all in the same boat. This was followed by some wise words: No, we all weathered the same storm, just with different boats.
This year has been very challenging and the winter storm last week pushed all of us to a different level of frustration as teachers and staff have had to balance a deadly pandemic with personal health, family, and teaching students remotely and in-person. Last week, we were dealing with the brutal storm that brought historic-low temperatures, snow, and ice to Texas, along with frozen pipes and power and water outages that further shook an uncertain school year.
Our community has rallied in true Panther fashion and has done whatever was needed to get our campuses, facilities, staff, and families up and running to return to learning, whether in-person or remote.
We must all remember that each family is coping with the events of the last 12 months in their own way. While many are thriving, we want you to know that LHISD staff is here to offer assistance to any Panther families in need.
As we bounce back, let's continue to remember that it might take longer for some of us to get back to normal. I am also proud to live in a community that takes a priority on helping neighbors and friends get the help they need. I am so proud of our hard-working staff who puts others first and values the importance of community. They continue to be champions who serve and lead by example.
Regardless of what happens next, LHISD will be ready!
