Dear Parents,

We are already in the month of May! Amazing! We had a beautiful First Holy Communion Day for our second graders last Saturday. This was followed by our annual May Crowning on Tuesday. Fr. Marty and Msgr. Coyle led our school in a very special ceremony followed by our school Mass organized by our First graders. Our annual Art Show was another success with wonderful displays of art from our children. We had a great 6,7,8 grade dance too. Most of the kids wore "formal wear". There is a short video clip found on the left side of this page called SFA Videos. Follow the link. Enjoy the 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.

Happy Spring!!!
