SFUSD Partners with SF Public Libraries to Go-Go
The Bookmobile is here! On Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2 to 6 p.m., the Library’s fleet of bookmobiles will park at Jose Ortega Elementary School, Willie Brown Jr. Middle School and John O’Connell High School. The mobile will be at Treasure Island on Wednesdays from 2 to 6 p.m. Patrons can drop off library materials and retrieve holds at each location.
How it works: Place a hold through your library accounts for books, DVDs, audiobooks, LPs or any circulating item and select the SFPL To Go-Go site for pick up. Once the holds are ready, patrons will receive an email, print notice or phone call letting them know that their materials are ready. Patrons are welcome to bring their reusable bag, but per health guidelines, they may not be placed on the pick-up table. Bags will be provided for those who do not have them. SFPL employees will operate the bookmobile, and SFUSD school librarians will help facilitate properly distanced curbside pick-up.
In more good news, on Oct. 13, the Library will start SFPL To Go service at Chinatown, Ortega and Visitacion Valley branch libraries. For more information visit sfpl.org/sfpl-to-go. Use this map to find the nearest SFPL to Go location.
Your Child Has a Library Card
On Tuesday, Sept. 1, the SF Public Library emailed library card numbers to all SFUSD students. If you have not received your card, please fill in this online library card application using your SFUSD email.
SFUSD librarians are working with your child's teacher to help students activate their library cards, check out eBooks, and place holds on print books at "SFPL to Go" locations throughout the city.
SFUSD librarians have curated lists of recommended titles that your students can check out. Please find these lists and other resources at our temporary site, sfusdlib.org.
Learn About Proposed Changes to the Elementary Student Assignment Policy
You are invited to a Community Information Session to learn about the proposed Student Assignment Policy that the Board of Education will vote on in December.
This is an opportunity to ask questions about the policy, understand its key features, and provide input on how we implement the policy in the coming years. The policy changes will impact elementary schools only, and will not affect incoming kindergarten students any sooner than school year 2022-23.
The Community Information Sessions are Oct. 27, 28, 29 and Nov. 7. To learn more and register, visit sfusd.edu/student-assignment-community-information-meeting.
View Report Cards in ParentVUE
In last week’s digest, we shared grading periods. Report cards for students are available in the Documents tab of ParentVUE and can be downloaded in PDF format. Report cards are posted after the grading period's report cards are finalized by school staff. Given the process, the timelines for posting may vary by school. Learn how families can access student report cards in ParentVUE: sfusd.edu/pvuereportcards.
Vegetarian Meals Now Available
We now offer all-vegetarian grab and go meals at Mission High School (3750 18th Street) and Willie Brown Middle School (2055 Silver Avenue). When picking up meals, just let the staff know that you'd like a vegetarian bag and they will provide you with a bag containing only vegetarian meals. Other questions? Please visit our Special Dietary Needs page.
