Hello Junior Parents,

Please take a look at this opportunity!  

The American Legion is looking for a current SFHS junior to participate in their 2022 Virtual California Girls State competition this June/July.  While St. Francis High School does not sponsor this event, we do partner with the American Legion to select one qualified candidate to represent the district. 


Message from the Principal – 12/15/21

Dear St. Francis Families,

With an increase in COVID-19 infection rates, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), is requiring all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, to wear face coverings when indoors at public settings. The new mask mandate went into effect today, Wednesday, December 15th 2021 and last through Saturday, January 15th, 2022.


Important Message from the Principal – 12/08/21

As most of you know, our President, Theresa Rodgers, has been on a leave of absence for the past few months to grieve the passing of her father and to address some ongoing health concerns. 

I am sad to inform you that Theresa Rodgers will not be returning to St. Francis Catholic High School. She has made the difficult decision to resign her position as President of our school in order to focus on her family and health. 

Attached is a letter that Theresa wrote and asked it be shared with faculty/staff and external parent community.

Letter from Katie Perata, Ed.D. – Executive Director of Catholic Schools Diocese of Sacramento

Please find an attached letter from our Executive Director of Public Schools regarding Governor Newsom’s vaccination announcement last Friday. At this time, there is not enough information to determine next steps for our Catholic schools as no official state order has been published. The vaccination mandate will be discussed at the upcoming Bishop’s conference later in the month, and we will follow-up with you as soon as we know more.
