Dear Parents,

It is now LENT! What can we sacrifice or "Do Extra" for our Lord? Please share with your children what you might do for this holy season and have them share their sacrifices too.
We are all struggling through a very cold and snowy winter. Our school took part in saying the Rosary in January to coincide with the Right to Life March in our nation's capital. Despite the frigid temperatures, our children offered their prayers for the unborn as we walked among the school and church grounds. We thank 69 News and the AD Times for publicizing our very important event.
We completed our Magazine/candy drive and COGAT/IOWA testing. Getting ready for a wonderful spring!!!

School Closings & Delays

How do you know if the school is closed or dismissing early due to snow or icy conditions???
Parents can do any of the following:
1) Go to the school’s website at 2) Turn to (Ch. 69 TV) WFMZ
***The best thing to do is register your cell phone and/or email on the “Newsflash” button of our school’s website. This will notify you immediately by text message and/or email of any school situations***

Please note: We do not follow the Boyertown School District for closings and delays. If you reside in another school district, you must be aware of St. Francis Academy’s closing or delay schedule. For example, do not send your child to school if your district is operating on a one hour delay and St. Francis has a two hour delay. The school will not be open for any children arriving earlier than what has been announced.
Special Pre-K Note: If there is a two hour delay, the morning Pre-k class will still take place beginning at 10:30 for those who choose to attend.

It's LENT!
