Here you will find all of the resources available to you and your children. We will continually post assets as they become known to us. There is a wealth of generosity out there, and we are grateful that our online community is out there to lend their helping hands.
As for our SFACA students and teachers, in order to keep our students moving forward here at SFACA grades 3 through 8 will be utilizing Google Classroom for instruction and our primary grades which include PreSchool through 2 will share instruction through the Remind App and Option C.
