The San Francisco Board of Education voted unanimously for all SFUSD students to have the option to return to full-time in-person school starting August 16, the first day of the 2021-22 academic school year, assuming public health guidelines allow.
For Students Returning to In Person This Spring
SFUSD is excited to welcome back some of our students to in-person learning starting April 12, 19 and 26. If you’re coming back, remember to wear a mask and have clothes for different temperatures, as classroom windows will be open and there may not be heat.
Placement Packets, Forms and the Return Safely Guide
Resources and information are available now to prepare for in-person learning. If your child is confirmed for an in-person placement, you will receive information and participate in a mandatory school orientation. Resources such as Return Safely Together Family Guide and in-language videos are available now to help families prepare.
Students who receive an in-person learning placement will receive information in a few different ways:
- All families will receive a letter by mail.
- Families who have an email address or active ParentVUE account on file with SFUSD will only receive their placement letter (not the entire packet) by mail. The packet materials (including the forms) were sent by email or uploaded in your ParentVUE account. All packet materials are also available at sfusd.edu/placementpacket.
Accessing spring placement information in ParentVUE: To access your student's placement letter for in-person learning, please log in to ParentVUE and follow these steps to access your letter. The letter is available in the "Documents" menu. The same letter was also mailed via USPS and emailed (for those with email addresses on file).
Risk acknowledgement and other forms are due on your child’s first day of in-person school for Spring 2021.
For more information on placement packets, read the Question of the Week section below.
If your child receives transportation services based on their IEP, and you said “yes” to in-person learning, you will automatically receive information about your bus route and schedule from the Transportation Department. You do not need to submit a request for services.
SFUSD is also providing limited general education transportation services to 34 elementary schools (see list). If you would like to request general education transportation services please complete this form, and the Transportation Department will let you know if your request for transportation has been approved or denied.
Since we may not be able to provide general education transportation services to all families who request services, we encourage you to review the following web pages to explore other transportation options: www.sfmta.com, www.sfsaferoutes.org.
If your child is riding a school bus, please review this video and these guidelines with your child.

Free Meals for All In-Person Students
Free lunch and snacks will be served at school for SFUSD students returning to in-person learning. Meals are free for all students through the 2020-21 school year.
