Return to 4-Day-A-Week In-Person Instruction Survey

Dear Parents,

While we await clearance from Sacramento County Department of Public Health (SCDPH) to fully reopen the campus, we will be working to bring back as many students as we can under the restrictions we are still facing. We will make every effort to return as many students to campus as physically possible; however, we are still required to keep to the 6 ft.  distancing, which greatly impacts the amount of students who can physically return to campus.

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.
