Dear St. Francis Families,

I can’t believe we have completed the fourth week of instruction!  While distance learning has become the “normal” for the time being, it is important to remind your daughters to find some balance. Now more than ever, it’s necessary that they find time to breathe and decompress, as it will provide them with some coping skills necessary for resilience and success throughout these times. As we continue to navigate this school year, an important skill for all students is to learn to ask for assistance early, so they can feel confident in their academics and self-advocacy skills. We want to ensure our Troubies utilize the various support systems we have in place at St. Francis, such as asking teachers for assistance, signing up for tutoring, and or working with their Guidance/Wellness counselors.

Thank you for being proactive and helping us develop strong, confident, young women.

Also, you may have seen the article in the Sacramento Bee yesterday afternoon that our Diocese received approval on their waiver application to return to in-person instruction for K-6 grade students. For those schools with 7-12 grades, we still have to abide by the Sacramento County public health order. We have to remain closed to in-person instruction until we are off the county watch list. As we receive additional information from our Diocese and the county, we will keep you updated. 

St. Francis of Assisi, pray for us!
St. Clare of Assisi, pray for us!

In the spirit of Pax et Bonum (peace and goodness),
