Revelry Auction Postponed

To prioritize reconciliation and healing within the St. Francis community, we have made the decision to postpone the Revelry Auction until after Easter break. Like before, the Auction itself will open a week prior to that day and close at 9:00 p.m. on that evening.

We look forward to an opportunity for our community to gather in support of our Troubies. In the meantime, we pray for reconciliation and healing within our community.

Letter from the Principal 2-23-21

Dear St. Francis Families,

I am writing to you this evening to provide an update on today’s events and what we’re anticipating the rest of the week.  

But first, I want to acknowledge how incredibly upsetting this is for everyone.  The wellness of our families is important and can be difficult to achieve, especially in a time when we’ve had to isolate ourselves.  I am including a Wellness Resource that shares strategies to deal with racial stress and how to practice self-care.  It is my prayer that you find it helpful.

IMPORTANT: On-Campus Classes Survey

At this time we are awaiting additional guidance from the Sacramento County Public Health (SCPH) Department on what reopening comprehensive high schools will look like.  However, we are currently in the most restrictive Purple Tier and will have to follow the prescribed guidelines. An additional factor we’ve identified over the past month is that we have students who are designated to be in the Red or Gold Cohorts who are not attending school.  This is impacting our ability to open those cohorts to other students that would like to be on campus.
