As the weather grows colder and the possibility of inclement weather becomes real, we want to remind you of how St. Francis School makes and communicates decisions.  

We do not follow either Jefferson County or Oldham County; we make our own decisions. The School uses the BrightArrow System, through which parents will be notified of closings and delays by phone calls and emails. There may be different decisions made for different campuses as to whether a given campus is open, closed, or on a delay. One message will go out and contain details for both campuses. We will also notify local television stations, which will post any delays or closings both on-screen and on their websites.

Your contact information in our Parent-Student Portal is the means by which you’ll be contacted through BrightArrow, so please be sure your information is up to date. We did a test of the system this past Wednesday evening, so you should have received notification then.

2005 production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”

“To be (in the SFS Drama Project’s spring play)…or not to be (What? And miss out on Shakespeare?). That is the question (all 5th – 8th graders need to ask themselves). Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune (A Midsummer Night’s Dream – now that IS fortune!), or to take arms against a sea of troubles, and by opposing (you’ll really miss out!), end them.” Calling all actors! Auditions for the NYA award-winning SFS Drama Project’s spring play, William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream are next Wednesday, December 13th after school until 5:30 p.m. Click here for the surprise announcement at Morning Meeting!

Perhaps the most produced of all Shakespeare’s plays, this rollicking comedy has it all: Royalty, star-crossed lovers, elves and fairies, simpleton townsfolk, magic, mistaken identities –  and more! If your child can’t make that day, or is absent, callbacks are scheduled for Thursday, December 14th either during the day or after school. Students may get audition forms and role descriptions from Reed Gabhart, and a meeting was held today to give the kids all the information they need. If this is indeed our last show on this old stage, there’s no better “encore” than A Midsummer Night’s Dream!
