    Hello Rick — it was great to talk with you this morning.

    The new address of record for the Henry Ford Academy is 429 Arbor Place, San Antonio, TX, 78207.

    We will begin occupying/working in the building on August 3, 2009, at which time mail delivery will begin. Is there a way to ensure that any written/mailed correspondence is delivered at the 381 W. Houston address until that time?

    Thank you for your help.

    -Shannon A. Clements
