SFA Charter School Extended Closure

Update March 31, 2020 - UPDATE REGARDING COVID-19 (coronavirus)

SFA Charter School Families,
Today, Texas Governor Greg Abbott extended school closures until May 4, 2020 due to the threat from COVID-19 (coronavirus). SFA Charter School must remain closed for in-person instruction as required.
SFA Charter School has no confirmed cases, but Nacogdoches County has two confirmed cases, with 3,266 confirmed in Texas. As we continue to receive school updates regarding the COVID-19 (coronavirus) conditions, you may expect communication through email, social media, and websites.
Through Seesaw, our individualized online instructional platform, teachers continue to provide rich learning opportunities for our SFA Charter School students while out of school. Teachers delight in the time spent engaging with students each day.
If we work together, fewer friends and family will be affected by coronavirus. Hospitals will not be overloaded and lives will be saved. Learn more at
