Dear Parents,

Many thanks to all the amazing volunteers who helped make our "Open House" and "Book Fair" a great success! Also, very grateful to our students who read at all the Masses at Saint Columbkill and MBS parishes last weekend. You were great! We will have to postpone some of our Catholic School's Week activities: "Dress Down & Pizza Day" as well as "Volunteer Appreciation Day". We will reschedule soon. Enjoy the snow but be careful...God Bless you all!

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.
