PTA Newsletter ~ September 7th

Hope you had a great long weekend and we’ve jumped right into Tuesday of this week. This is a SHORTER school week with MANY updates.  Please read below for highlights & gratitude for this week and check out the  PTA Newsletter for 9/7.   Thank you.

ReminderEarly Dismissal is tomorrow, Wed 9/8 at 12:50pm for all students who’re not in our FSK after-school program.

Please be sure to continue health self-screenings at home every day for your student(s) BEFORE they come to school; the screening (see attached flyer) helps keep all our students and staff healthy at FSK. Thank you.



1. URGENT: MANY Volunteers are needed for our morning Stop, Drop & Go to keep students safe at drop-off. This is our safe vehicle drop-off program on 43rd Avenue from 7:30-8:00am; if you’re able to give 30 minutes of your time, please sign up online ASAP – CLICK HERE


2.  Have you joined the new FSK ParentSquare App?
If YES, hope you’re able to activate your account and check out the posts/calendar updates on the app last week.
If NO, please fill out the form – CLICK HERE – and you’ll be sent an activation link by email within 3-5 days.
Questions? Please email Emily H, our PTA Tech VP at
NOTE:  FSK ParentSquare is the NEW communication App that we are using school-wide at FSK; it’s NOT the same as the SFUSD ParentVue login/school district info app; their names are similar.


3. Today through 9/12, Garden Fundraiser: stop by any Sloat Garden Center location in SF through Sunday 9/12 and purchase awesome garden items; mention ‘Francis Scott Key Elementary School‘ at the checkout and 10% of all sales will be given to our school in the form of a gift card.
