SFX Coronavirus Information
Dear SFX Community, Today Arizona Governor Doug Ducey announced that schools will remain closed for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. See Governor Ducey's letter here .
As a community, we will always stay united in our efforts to forge through these challenging times. SFX will follow this announcement and will not resume on campus classes this school year. Our distance learning protocol continues to move forward with rigor and will take us to the end of our academic year. I know this announcement will most certainly spark many questions and emotions as it is not the news any of us want to hear.
Today is most certainly a tough day, but we will not hang our heads. The way our students, families, and teachers have all rallied together shows the strength of our SFX family. We will stay present to the moment and work hard with our distance learning. We will look to the horizon with hope in our hearts that we will be together again on our campus very soon. Proverbs 3: 5-6 reads “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding. Acknowledge Him in all that you do, and He will direct your path.” I think this passage has never been more important than it is now. Continue to take time each day and pray. Pray on your own, and pray as a family. He will guide us on our road. His light will shine for us to see our way forward and through our present times.
Very soon I will address school topics such as sacraments, 8th grade graduation, our 2020 summer school program (still scheduled to run), and other programs and community concerns. I will still be posting videos and writing you letters often throughout the rest of the school year. I continue to believe and keep the faith that together we will rise up and get through this situation.
Please feel free to reach out to me, as always, if you need to or want to talk. I, along with our faculty and staff, are here for you and your family! May the Lord bless you and your family. Know that my prayers are with you today and everyday.
