If I have an issue, whom do I contact?
If there is a concern in the classroom, start by contacting the teacher. If concerns persist, involve the school counselor to help advocate and check in. If the issue is still not resolved, contact our assistant principal.
What is Advisory Time and Saints Time?
Advisory Time: Students are required to attend advisory on Mondays of each week. Students will meet with the same advisory teacher throughout the school year. We will usually have additional advisory days at the start of each Trimester. Please consult SFHS Saints Time calendar for the schedule for each trimester, which is available the first day of the trimester.
Saints Time is usually Tuesday through Friday depending on the weekly schedule. During Saints Time, students may get assistance from teachers in classes as needed. If students are not meeting with a teacher, they can go to one of the supervised areas.
Advisory Time/Saints Time occurs every day, 10:00-10:31 a.m.. unless otherwise indicated by the Saints Time calendar.
The number one priority of Saints Time is for students to get academic assistance in classes. Students are expected to attend intervention when requested by a teacher and when they need assistance in a class. Students that are behind in graduation credits are required to attend intervention until they are on target for graduation. Students that are failing multiple classes are also required to attend interventions until they are passing all their classes.
