Dear SFUSD Families:

Winter Break is just around the corner, and public health officials have sounded the alarm about the rising number of COVID-19 cases and we are being asked to only gather with those we live with, both inside and outside. Remember: The smaller the gathering, the lower your risk of infection. The City of San Francisco has shared guidance with ideas for how to celebrate the holidays safely by doing activities at home with people you already live with. Let’s all continue to do our part to help slow the spread. 

We will not send a Weekly Digest over Winter Break. The digest will return on Wednesday, Jan. 6. Please have a restful and safe winter break. 


Technology-Enriched Activities and Resources Your Children Can Explore Over Break

We’ve collected some fun, engaging, technology-enriched activities and resources that you can explore with your children—or give your children to explore. You’ll find them on the Technology Resources for Families page.

Use Seesaw to support creativity during winter break!

  • Seesaw is a great place to be creative with drawings, videos, photos and more!

You can also pick up nine days’ worth of free meals, including whole pomegranates, cauliflower, and more!
