Dear Families, Friends, Staff, and Community members of South San Francisco Unified School District,

 

It is hard to believe that we are approaching the end of another school year. I am proud to say that it has, once again, been a rewarding, highly engaging, and successful year.

 

Although we had a few moments of discord this year, I am thankful we were able to work through these items in order to refocus our efforts on giving our students the best educational opportunities and experiences they deserve.

 

As stated in our Strategic Plan, our vision for our students focuses on 4 key things – our 4 “Es”.  - We strive to provide relevant learning experiences for our students; we cultivate innovation and collaboration and create opportunities for our students to explore in our classrooms; we will embrace and foster diversity of people and diversity of thoughts in SSFUSD, and we will maximize opportunities for all students to excel by growing resilient and confident people in our schools.

 

In the letter below, we highlight some of the major accomplishments and updates that occurred this year. Please take a few minutes out of your day to see what great things we can and have accomplished because we all came together to focus on common priorities for our children.

 

One of the ways in which we have built a collective sense of efficacy is through our communication, through the support we provide to ensure student and adult achievements, and through the relationships we develop over time. These are not new initiatives. These are institutional commitments that I have asked every member in our District to adopt and embed into everything we do in SSFUSD.

 

The SSFUSD C.A.R.

 

 

When we learned how to drive, we were excited about the independence but also the excitement of the places we would be able to go and the things we would be able to see. A car’s primary function is to help you get to a specific destination. Like what we do in education, we set goals of what we want to achieve and we create action plans that drive us toward that goal. In order to get there successfully, we must work together, develop solid relationships and keep the channels of communication and collaboration open.

 

Everyone in our organization drives the car at his/her own respective level and each person's knowledge, competency, efficacy, and skills are an important component of our learning journey.

 

We are truly thankful for your continued support, assistance, and confidence in our teachers, classified staff, administrators, and me, as the Superintendent; it is my sincere pleasure that I have the opportunity to continue to serve and lead this great school district and I am looking forward to our enduring partnership as we continue to pave the pathway to greatness!

A Message from the Superintendent Regarding Water Quality Testing

August 17, 2016

Dear SSFUSD Community,

Welcome back to the start of another wonderful year! I would like to take this opportunity to provide a brief update regarding an essential service to our school facilities.

One of our highest priorities, as a district, is maintaining safe and healthy learning environments.  As you may already know, the issue of water quality in public facilities has been receiving recent attention nationwide. In light of this, and to be proactive about water safety, school districts in San Mateo County will be conducting water quality testing this fall.

While we have no reason to believe any sampling locations will exceed thresholds set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), we want to be sure our water is safe now and in the future. Our school district will be working with our local water agencies, Westborough Water District, City of Daly City Department of Water and Wastewater Resources, and California Water Services, to conduct this testing.   We will keep you informed of our progress along the way.

This process also serves as a valuable reminder that schools aren't the only places where students drink water. As we go through the testing at our school sites, we hope you will consider taking steps to ensure the safety of your water at home. The EPA has valuable guidance on identifying and fixing any potential hazards, which you can access at https://www.epa.gov/lead/protect-your-family-exposures-lead#homeleadsafe

Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns about the work going on at your school. We're looking forward to a fantastic year!

 

Sincerely,

Shawnterra Moore, Ed.D.

Superintendent
