Age Criteria

Students must be the age of the designated class by September 1st of the school year. For example, a child turning 3 on August 30 will be in the Three's class; however a child turning 3 on September 2 will be in the Two's class.


Children must be up-to-date on all immunizations to be enrolled at St. Francis. There will be no exceptions. Parents are asked to keep their student's file updated with any shots received during their enrollment.


Prescribed medication may be administered with a signed medication authorization form that is available in the office. The form must be complete and turned in with the medication in its original packaging. Over the counter medication will not be allowed without a doctor's authorization. DO NOT SEND MEDICINE to school in a child's backpack. A parent is required to bring the medication and form directly to the office.

Late Pick up Policy

Dismissal begins at 12:15 half day/ 2:15 extended day. Please make every effort to be prompt in picking up your child. Young children become anxious when they are not picked up on time. In the event that an emergency arises that will cause a parent to be late picking up, we ask that the parent notify the office. A $1 per minute late fee will be charged if a parent has not arrived by 12:30 half day/ 2:30 extended day pick up time. If the office is NOT notified, the parent may be subject to an additional $25 late fee assessed on top of the $1 per minute late fee rate.

Tuition Payments

Families may setup a payment schedule that best suits them using our financial form. Payments on a monthly schedule will be subject to a late fee of $25 if paid after the 15th of each month. Return checks will be charged a $25 fee.

Early Withdrawal

If a student will no longer be able to attend St. Francis, the school will need 30 days written notification and will be responsible for tuition through the 30 day notification time period. If 30 day written notification is not given, then full tuition payment is required.

Severe Weather

For severe weather, St. Francis follows Temple public schools. If TISD is closed or on a delay, St. Francis will be closed for the day.
