If you reside in another school district, you must be aware of St. Francis Academy’s closing or delay schedule. For example, do not send your child to school if your district is operating on a one-hour delay and St. Francis has a two-hour delay. The school will not be open for any children arriving earlier than what has been announced as the school's official starting time.
Special Pre-K Note: If there is a two hour delay, the Pre-K will still meet for anyone who chooses to attend.
A Message from the Principal
A Message from the Principal: Registration for 2019-2020
Parents are strongly encouraged to complete the registration process for the 2019-2020 School year. Because of the late starts and school closings, we have extended the deadline for receiving the $25 student and $50 fami-ly discounts for registration.
With this in mind, parents are also asked to complete the FACTS manage-ment registration process, and to please complete the Financial Aid com-ponent in anticipation of the assignment of scholarships and grants for the 2019-2020 year.
All parents are reminded that you must register on FACTS to manage the tuition and payment plans.
CogATs and IOWA testing
This is just a reminder that CogAts testing will take place from March 20 to March 22. IOWA testing will take place during the first week of April, from the 1st to the 5th. Please remember to emphasize with your children that a good night’s sleep and a hearty breakfast will help them to do their best on the assessments.
As of this moment, we have not announced the make-up day for the weather emergency that occurred on February 21st. If we experience no additional school closings, we will be in session on Easter Monday, April 22. Further school closings may require an extension to the school year, and subsequent rescheduling of the current dates for graduation.
Also on the topic of Weather-related adjustments, parents should note that the date for 2nd trimester report card distribution now falls on March 20. In addition, the date for 3rd trimester progress reports now falls on May 3. Conflicts with other calendar events have made these changes optimal.
Protecting God's Children
Parents are still required to obtain, FBI, PA Criminal Record Check, and Child Abuse Clearances. For a complete list of requirements, please follow the link:
