Back to School Info…..

Dear SFACA Families,

I hope this letter finds you well.  I want to thank you for all your patience and understanding during these recent months as we prepared for the re-opening of school. It has been and will continue to be our goal to keep your children healthy, safe, and excited to be back in school. Whether you chose, in-person or distance learning, I pray that this school year will be filled with joyful learning for each of our precious students.

So here we go…

The students will be welcomed back according to the following staggered schedule in order to give the children an opportunity to adjust to new health and safety procedures and protocols and provide our teachers with professional development time related to our re-opening.

Re-Opening Update….

Dear SFACA Families,

I hope you are all well.

I just wanted to let you know that we are working on our re-opening plans for September and hoping that our plans for a full day program can be a reality. If our plan is approved by the Diocese, NYS Department of Education and NYS Department of Health, we will need to adhere strictly to guidelines of social distancing, mask wearing, hand hygiene, and temperature checks for students in grades 1 to 8. Our youngest students will follow another another set of protocols for 3-4-5 year olds. There will be many more health and safety guidelines to follow, but we believe it will be doable for us if we utilize our building to its fullest capacity. Let’s hope for the best!

I hope you get to enjoy some family time during what’s left of the summer. 

Stay safe and well.


Ms. Stefano
