Please see below, a message I received last night from our uniform provider.Dear Valued School Partner,
We are reaching out to acknowledge and apologize for the fact that we have fallen behind in our shipping time frames and to announce our shipping methodology moving forward.
We recognize that communication with you is essential in times like this and that we should have communicated earlier. We fell behind in our shipping time frames earlier this summer, but our distribution facility in Chicago is now (and has been for the past month) operating at maximum capacity. We have all of the needed inventory for your school on our shelves, and we are working around the clock and through the weekends to get all orders out the door ASAP.
Under normal circumstances, our warehouse would ship orders on a first in first out (FIFO) basis. When we fell behind in shipping, we began shipping under a different methodology that aligned more with school start dates. We have successfully met many of these deadlines and have been less successful with others. As a result, we have determined to revert to the FIFO method as of Thursday, 8/29. This means that across all of our partner schools and families' orders, we will be addressing orders in terms of oldest to newest.
This week we will email all families with outstanding orders, notifying them of their order’s ship date.
Please know that we understand the frustration and upset these shipping delays have caused for your families and for you as school leaders. Earlier communication could have assisted in subduing some of that stress. Again, our most sincere apologies in this regard. We are hopeful that through this communication with you and your families, combined with addressing oldest outstanding orders first, we will quickly be able to provide uniforms to those who have been waiting the longest and are, most likely, feeling the most anxiety about their uniforms.
As stated above, our products are in place, we are working 24/7, and we are getting orders out the door in great numbers. We will not rest until every student is in uniform!

Titans,Please see the following message from our uniform provider.Dear Partner School,
We wanted to reach out to acknowledge that we are running a bit behind in processing/shipping orders to families, but we are quickly catching up. Please see below for an update on shipping time frames and a broader sense of what is happening currently in our distribution center.
All orders placed through 7/26 will ship out of our facility by this Friday, 8/9
All orders placed through 8/2 will ship out of our facility by next Friday, 8/16
We had a few glitches earlier this summer with our receiving process, so it took us a bit longer to get our inventory on the shelves than we had anticipated. Over the past six weeks, we have worked diligently to get up to speed. We are pleased to share that our distribution center is now processing orders at maximum capacity. Additionally, we are currently working around the clock to ensure that we are doing all we can to process and ship orders as quickly as possible.
We are in a very strong position with inventory. Once our inventory was received and shelved, we had more than ample quantities on the shelves which allows us to now process orders with the greatest possible speed and accuracy.
Our apologies for the extended wait times and busy signal that some of your families may have experienced in trying to reach our customer service center. We are adding customer service consultants and the entire team is working extended hours behind the scenes to get in touch with each and every customer that has reached out, but please be patient as our call and email volume remains high. Our shipping delays resulted in a commensurate increase in customer service inquiries. Please know that as we catch up with our order shipments, our response times in customer service will return to normal, real-time communication.
Thank you for your patience and your partnership. We are honored to be serving you.

Greetings Titan family!There are, typically, two emotions people share with me during this final period before a new school season. One is relief. The other is unbridled optimism. Often, it is a delightful combination of the two. Whichever place on that spectrum you find yourself, I hope you are excited to begin the 2019-2020 season because, well, it is almost here.As such, I want to bring a few items to your attention. I have referenced much of this in my recent Office Hours LIVE! Broadcasts on our Facebook page. Feel free to go there to check them out and to join me (almost) every Thursday at 9 am.

One from 9-11 am and a second from 1-3 pm. Both sessions will cover the same information and are designed for parents. At this event, I will go over a number of logistical and operational items that directly relate to strengthening the partnership between home and school. Part of this presentation includes an update on school projects and future planning. This will be an important event for parents as quite a bit of important information will be shared.Sunday, August 11, is Back to School Bash! The event begins at 4 pm and lasts until 6 pm.

From Mrs. Cheek:Our last day!
What an adventure we have had! Today we visited the home of George and Martha Washington. Their home is 80% original and restored to look (nearly) exactly haw it looked at the time. Students enjoyed walking the grounds, taking in the views, and seeing the animals. Some discovered that the goats would eat out of their hands!
We are sad to leave but excited to share our adventures with those that did not join us. We will see you tonight, Houston!
From Mrs. Cheek:We spent our morning at the Air and Space museum! Some preferred air, others preferred space. Everyone had a blast and expanded their thinking! There were some mind boggling questions asked. We may have some future astrophysicists in our midst!We are currently touring the National Cathedral; an Episcopal Cathedral and a living work of art. The stained glass is breathtaking!Later we will hit the Newseum (we missed it yesterday due to rain and extensive traffic) and American History museum! We are enjoying our time together and making lasting memories.
We have informed teachers to return to normal operations. Students are now okay to go outside. We will continue to monitor the situation and are prepared to adjust as needed.
In response to the current situation involving the fire in Crosby, teachers have been asked to keep students inside as much as possible. We are actively monitoring the situation and will update you as necessary.
As reported by Mrs. Cheek:Yesterday was quite eventful. We assumed a massive April Fools joke but unfortunately, nobody was laughing. Well, okay, we were all laughing. It all started at the duck tours with the amphibious busses. We divided into 2 groups, Mrs Davis in group one, I in group two. Group one loaded the duck tour, an hour later group two took a separate bus. About 30 minutes into the tour I received a text message from a parent. Their bus was stuck in the mud and had been for about half an hour. I notified our captain who assured someone was on the way to pick them up and was thankful for the update, he would go another way. Our group finished the tour and we tried calling and calling. Meanwhile our first group was cold and stuck; adorned with ponchos and life vests. As Mr. Traylor so eloquently put it, “We are on a duck and this duck is stuck.” After 3 hours of chilly wind, in a boat, in the middle of the Potomac river, and three other duck busses attempting to pull them out, a parent called the coast guard. Not the captain, a parent. 10 minutes later they were rescued! With quite a tale to tell about their Stuck Tour.
Happy to be safe and warm,
Titans in DC
From Mrs. Cheek:We made it to DC safe and sound, and hit the ground running right away. We toured Arlington Cemetery and witnessed the end of the changing of the guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. We traveled to Iwo Jima, caught a group picture there. Then we visited the Pentagon Memorial. We traveled downtown and honored the Jefferson Memorial and witnessed the blooming cherry blossoms on our way to the Washington Monument. Next was the Lincoln Memorial, Korean War Memorial, Vietnam Memorial, Memorial for Women Serving in Vietnam War and World War II Memorial. We are enjoying our time and excited to share our experience.
After monitoring the situation all day and recognizing that the shelter in place order has been lifted in Deer Park and Galena Park, I have instructed teachers that it is safe to bring students outside again. This includes Titan Academy After School programs.As always, thank you very much for your continued support of Holy Trinity Episcopal School.
March 21, 2019Good morning. Holy Trinity is actively monitoring the situation involving air quality resulting from the Deer Park fire. At this time, there is no reason for us to believe our students and faculty are in any danger. In addition, while the school is technically in Sheldon ISD, our location is on the extreme northern end and is not in any reported zone of concern.Out of caution, we have asked teachers to limit all outdoor activities today. In addition, Mrs. Elsa will be monitoring the news all day. If we need to take any action other than what we are already doing, we will let you know ASAP.If you have any questions or need to check in with us, please call the front desk. We will be happy to help.
We are seeking your opinion on a possible date for a spring family event. Please go to the HTES Facebook Page and take the poll. The poll will be available for one week from the date of this announcement.
