Community & Inclusivity

Principals’ Monday Message ~ February 8th

Happy Week 23!  We had quite a busy week last week. Hope many of you enjoyed the dance party celebrating our diversity.  Despite the politics, press releases and the continuous threat of COVID-19, we are so proud and humbled by the togetherness and strong connection of our community.  We are making every effort within our ability to support the students and their families.  Thank you for your continuous support and trust!  We apologize for the long message this week.  There are so many things we need to inform you about and hopefully you find these updates useful.

This week, we will continue to celebrate Black History month.  Students are learning about the achievements and contributions of African Americans through readings, class discussions and research.  In addition, we have three holidays at the end of this week.  First is Lunar New Year on Feb. 12.  It is also called Spring Festival, a major holiday celebrated by many of our families.  This is the time families and friends get together, enjoy many art activities, eat good food, and share traditions. Even though we can not celebrate the traditional way this year, we can still celebrate in a unique virtual way. To kick off the celebration, our Mandarin Club students recorded a video wishing everyone a Happy Lunar New Year! 新年快乐 (xin nian kuai le)!  Next week, we will share with you a very special video made by our ELAC families.  Here is the link for some fun craft ideas: draw a dragon, make lanterns, origami ox, etc…enjoy!

Valentine and Presidents’ Day are this coming Sunday and following Monday.  We will have a 4-day weekend (no classes on 2/12 and 2/15).  Please enjoy the time with your loved ones and rejuvenate for the coming weeks.  We will be starting many assessments of our students.  In order for our teachers to know what students have learned and understood, they will be working with students reading and math milestone assessments. Please encourage your student(s) to do their best. For English Language Learners, we will start their language assessments in March and April. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Updates for this week:

1. Return Safely Together Updates.  SFUSD continues to plan and prepare to reopen school sites. Here are some updates:

  • FSK has completed the first round of redesigning the classrooms to accommodate 14 students and 2 adults in each classroom. As you know, the return date for our first group of students has been postponed.  We  will keep you informed once I receive more info. Please click here to see progress.
  • SFUSD In-Person Phase 2A Registration Survey Results: As of today, FKS has 186 families said “yes” to In-Person Learning which is 70% of the families from K – Grade 2. We will use this information to plan for school reopening.
  • Read the latest bargaining updates from February 1 and January 29 here.
  • Dr. Matthews and Board of Education President Lopez issued a statement in response to an announcement that San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera is suing the SF Board of Education and SFUSD related to in-person learning.

Check the date and time at the location for you. Please bring an ID with your proof of age and residency, i.e. utility bill or driver’s license.

2.  School Meal Updates

  • Pandemic-EBT: Two Steps to Take.  California is getting ready to issue Pandemic-EBT (P-EBT) benefits for the 20-21 school year. Eligible families can receive a P-EBT card with funds to purchase food while school buildings are closed. To receive P-EBT, review the following before February 22:
  • Ensure your children are eligible for free or reduced-price school meals. If you haven’t already, update your household income information online by submitting the Multipurpose Family Income Form.
  • Ensure your mailing address is correct. Check which address you have on file or update it by completing the Emergency Card form online in ParentVUE.
  • The State of California will mail cards directly to families March through June. Families do not need to apply. Benefits have recently been increased by 15% and will include any August and September funds not received. Like school meals, P-EBT is available regardless of citizenship status and is not considered a “public charge.”
  • Note: All students enrolled in Community Eligibility Provision schools, receiving CalFresh or CalWORKs, or who are homeless, migrant, or foster, are automatically eligible and do not need to submit the Multipurpose Family Income Form. Please ensure your mailing address is correct!
