SFIS’ middle and high school academic programs will return to pre-pandemic in-person course schedules, offerings, curriculum, and instruction. Students will benefit most from the interactive and collaborative design of the SFIS curriculum when engaging and collaborating with their peers, teachers, and staff and when accessing all on-campus resources and services. For this reason, SFIS strongly encourages in-person learning in SY21-22.
SFIS will offer a short-term online option for students and families who are not yet comfortable returning to SFIS’ campus. This option will be provided for Quarter 1 and its continuation will be determined on a quarterly basis. Students who select this option must commit to it for the entire quarter and can switch to in-person learning for Quarter 2. If your student will enroll in the online option for Quarter 1, you must call:
High School Vice Principal, Bridget Love at 505-795-0611, regarding high school students;
Mid School Academic Counselor, Kris-Ann Vigil at 505-660-3041, regarding mid school students.
SFIS’ middle and high school dormitories will open for students who are fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Students who submit exemptions to the COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate will not be allowed to stay in the dormitories for Quarter 1. The vaccination criteria for SFIS dorms will be revisited for Quarter 2. All students who stay in the dormitories will attend in-person classes during the day. Dorm students cannot enroll in the online option.
