SFACA Distance Learning Information for All Grades

Dear Parents,

We learned today that all schools and academies in the Diocese of Brooklyn and Queens will be closed until April 20, 2020.  This was a difficult decision and it came out of the heartfelt concern for our entire school community. Alternative learning venues are being set into place to ensure that the students will be engaged and learning.
