To date, the SDFAS community has not reported a test-positive case of Covid-19

Out of an abundance of caution, SDFAS chose to close its campus as of Friday, March 13 at least until April 27. SDFAS is tracking news and information related to the spread of Covid-19 in our city and worldwide. The situation remains fluid. Please check this webpage regularly for updates and archived communications.

SDFAS is committed to transparency. The school is making decisions with respect to Covid-19 in an effort to protect our students and families as well as contribute to the flattening of the virus propagation curve within our community and our city.

Our school’s Covid-19 updates and other related information will be available on this dedicated SDFAS Covid-19 web page, created for your reference and for consultation by the public. As always, we strive to remain calm,  fact and science-based and empathic. Our goals are to be proactive and steadfast in our commitment to limit the spread of Covid-19. Our emergency response team will continue meeting daily and will keep you apprised of any developments.
