Coronavirus COVID-19 Updates

Home > Classrooms > Coronavirus COVID-19 Updates

The recent news involving the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) is creating concern across the globe, and St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Academy is closely monitoring all facets of the emerging situation very carefully. The health, safety, and well-being of our students is our most important priority, and we are treating this situation very seriously. We have been in constant communication with both the Diocesan office and the Board of Directors to make sure we are all aware of the emerging situation.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as state and local public health authorities, are providing schools with resources and are encouraging schools to prepare as best they can for situations that may arise because of this virus.  We will remain in frequent contact with the Diocesan Education Office for updates as the situation evolves. We will continue to follow the recommendations of diocesan, state and local officials and keep you informed of any new developments.

SFACA & Distance Learning…the next steps….

Posted on April 1, 2020

Dear SFACA Families,

I hope and pray that you are all well. You are continually in my thoughts and prayers as we struggle to deal with this ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Although these times are very difficult, I believe that if we work together and stay patient, we will come out on the other side of this stronger and with an increased appreciation for life’s simpler pleasures.  

I know that many of you are struggling as you try to juggle the demands of helping your children with their schoolwork and your own personal work. I appreciate the time you have spent working with your children.  Please be assured that the teachers are working hard to move toward increased virtual learning. The result of their work will be evident shortly, as many of them have launched ZOOM or Google Meet, and will be giving your children direct instruction in major subject areas. (more…)

Dear SFACA Families,
 
I hope everyone is staying healthy and feeling well during these unprecedented times.  Please know our teachers and staff are adjusting well to our distance learning program.  Of course, this is in no way a replacement for being in school. However, given the circumstances we are trying to connect with our students to maintain the St. Francis of Assisi community and keep them as engaged as possible.

For everyone, this has been a challenging week!
