In light of the recent racially charged events that have occurred over the past few weeks, including but not limited to the unjust murders of Ahmaud Arbery (unarmed, chased down and murdered while jogging in his neighborhood), George Floyd and Breonna Taylor (unarmed and killed by police officers), and the Central Park Incident, protests are erupting as people have taken a stance in solidarity with Black people all over the country.
By their many screens and/or your own frustrations, your kids may have been inundated with this too. It’s important to know that even during a time of sheltering in place, Black people and other Marginalized folks still have the ever-present danger of hate that could cost them their lives and even in the current state of this global pandemic we must keep moving forward the work of dismantling the never-ending public health crisis of white supremacy culture.
Below you will find a list of resources that may be helpful in self-education and can be used to guide discussions at home to give insight into what it’s like to be a BIPOC and marginalized throughout America and across the globe.

Dear SFUSD Community:
As we head into the weekend, I want to take a moment to let you know how much I appreciate all that you’re doing right now. As a parent myself, I know this is a difficult time for children and families alike. Though insufficient given the circumstances, I hope the resources and information we’re sharing with you are helpful.
We at SFUSD have three priorities while schools are closed: to ensure that your child has access to school meals, to provide your children with continued learning opportunities, and to offer your children as many of the support services they normally receive at school as possible.
Please watch this 3 minute video about our priorities.
Distant Learning Plan
We have a handy visual online to accompany our distance learning plan. It helps explain our distance learning phases.
While schools are temporarily closed, SFUSD is working to provide access to technology for students in need, to the greatest extent possible, to support the continuity of learning.
The best way to update your contact information and to ensure you receive district and school phone, email and text notifications is through your Family Portal (ParentVUE) account.
Starting Monday, March 30 and running through May 1, free grab and go meals will be available only on Mondays and Wednesdays between 11 a.m. and 12 p.m. at these 16 sites. We have reduced the number of days families have to leave their homes to get food, but the amount of food each family receives will remain the same. Also, parents no longer have to bring their children to pick up the meals.
