Letter from Superintendent Giese: Early morning phone call
Posted 09/18/2019 08:39AM

September 18, 2019

Good morning St. Francis Area Schools parents,

This morning you received a call far too early reminding you of the "90-minute late start" today. Due to miscommunication, the Transportation Department was unaware that we are NOT sending out calls for non-emergency items.

St. Francis Area Schools webpage (, ENews, social media updates, principal/building newsletters and the calendar will be your method of knowing the late starts. I promise, in the future, you will only get a call for closings or emergencies.

Future dates are:

  • October 16
  • November 20
  • December 18
  • January 22
  • February 19
  • March 25
  • April 15
  • May 20

This is a good time to remind you to log into Infinite Campus and check the boxes for "how" you want information shared with you (text, email or call). I would suggest selecting all three.

Beth Giese

Superintendent of Schools
