School Closure
Thu, Mar 12 4:40pm

Dear Grattan Community,


Hopefully you have all received word by now via text, voicemail, or email that ALL SFUSD schools will be closed beginning Monday March 16th through spring break. School will reopen on Monday April 6th. School is open tomorrow, Friday March 13th. Should you chose to keep your child home all absences will be excused.


This is not a decision that the district made lightly as they realize it will impact families in a multitude of ways. If you are a family that relies on school breakfast and lunches or a family that will experience significant financial burden, leaving it hard to feed your family, please reach out to Ms. Toni or me. We have grocery store gift cards that we want to share to ensure our students and families do not go hungry. If you are a family that is able to donate a gift card, please bring them by the office tomorrow.  


We will be working on getting some information up on our website tomorrow with educational resources for various grades. I am not clear yet on what type of additional resources we will have available during the closure. Please do not reach out to your teachers directly as they will be fielding numerous requests from families, and actually already have been. Teachers or I will be sending out information on next steps. Please be patient as we navigate this unchartered territory.  


Finally, if you have any questions/concerns and/or are in need of clarifications, please do not hesitate to reach out to me. I will continue to update the community with further information as it becomes available.  


In Community,

Ms. Walter
