A Message from the Principal

A Message from the Principal:   Safe2SaySomething    

On January 14, 2019,  in accordance with Act 44 of 2018, the state of PA will activate the Safe2Say platform, an anonymous tip system designed to identify at-risk students and behaviors, to alert school support teams, and to improve the level of safety in all school settings.

In December, all schools in PA were mandated to create support teams, to attend training sessions on using the platform, and to have access to support resources for training all students in grades 5-12 to use the system responsibly and effectively.   Safe2SaySomethingFAQs

The team at St. Francis is comprised of Mr. Repko, Mrs. Graczyk, Mrs. Houk, Mr. Kramer, and  Mrs. Stull. 

Between January 14th and March 14th, SFA will implement a training session for all the students in grades 5-8.  The training is designed to help students to recognize at-risk behaviors, to use the anonymous tip line to report areas of concern without  hesitation or reluctance.

Parents are asked to click on the links to find out more about the program, and to encourage the students to use the system responsibly, and without delay.

Re-enrollment Period Continues:

Parents are asked to consider completing re-enrollment processes at this time,  In conjunction with the Diocese of Allentown, all parochial schools have been asked to focus on re-enrollment between the months of October and March, before  schools  shift to recruitment as their central focus.

As part of the process, parents are highly encouraged to complete all applications to grants, scholarships, and financial aid as soon as the window opens on FACTS. 

In accordance with this request, the Committee in charge of drafting an updated tuition policy will share the draft in mid-January. 

Mr. Repko
