“Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” Romans 5:1-5
Following the Governor’s decision, our three high schools, Milwaukee Lutheran, Martin Luther and Lake Country Lutheran, will not conduct face-to-face instruction with students for the remainder of the school year. We recognize that this decision is extremely disappointing to hear – as much for you as it is for us.
Our schools will continue to provide instruction and education through virtual/digital learning opportunities for the rest of the second semester. Each school’s administration, faculty and staff will continue doing an outstanding job of connecting with students while ensuring that a personalized, high-quality experience is available to all. Students and parents should look for specific information from their respective school regarding end of the year events – announcements will be made in the near future. Thank you so much for your patience, understanding, and flexibility as we work together through this unprecedented time.
Four words jump out from the Bible verses above – suffering, perseverance, character and hope. We are all suffering from the inability to be together – we really, really miss you! However, we will persevere through this challenge and strengthen our character for whatever the world may throw at us in the future. Why? Because our faith in Jesus and the love that we have for each other cannot be diminished, but rather gives us the hope that we will one day be reunited – both here on earth and someday in heaven! This has been and will continue to be our prayer going forward. We love you. We miss you. And, we are praying for you!
