Parent Service Hours Information and Requirements for 2021-2022 School Year

Why we have parent service hours

Parent volunteers are an essential part of the St. Francis Catholic High School community. Volunteers are needed throughout the year for many events, including Admissions, Advancement, Academics, Arts, and Athletic events, as well as administrative tasks.

Dear St. Francis Families,

We are excited and preparing for the return of your daughter/s in a matter of weeks. I hope you’re enjoying the time away and basking in some fun summertime adventures.  While it’s not even August yet, and still plenty of summer days to enjoy, we are actively planning for the return of our Troubies.  I am looking forward to a great year at St. Francis, and know you are as well.


Senior Parking Spaces

Good afternoon Senior Families,

Thank you for your patience this morning as we dealt with an unexpected technology glitch that prevented our Senior Painted Parking portal from opening to everyone at 9:00 a.m. as previously indicated. We understand your time is valuable and apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused.  


COVID-19 Update
Masking guidance for schools

There is updated masking guidance for K-12 schools from Sacramento County and the California Department of Public Health, effective June 16, 2021.

  • Anyone visiting, working at or attending the school is required to wear masks INDOORS regardless of vaccination status.
  • While OUTDOORS, masks are no longer required, regardless of vaccination status and even if physical distancing cannot be maintained.

College Update for Rising Seniors – Class of 2022

Throughout the second semester of the 2020-2021 school year, we offered 10 Just for Juniors workshops as well as 2 career exploration workshops.  The College Advisors also met one-on-one with many juniors in college planning meetings. At the end of the semester, we shared a Summer Checklist, which includes things they can work on over the summer.
