The South San Francisco Unified School District will be conducting a test of our emergency messaging system as follows:

May 2, 2017 (5:30pm) All District Community, includes parents and staff

As the safety of our students and staff continues to be our top priority, we will be conducting a test protocol of our emergency messaging system.  As part of any immediate action response to an emergency or crisis scenario, we understand the importance of clear and prompt communication with our students, parents, staff, and community. This system test will allow us to continue to improve our ability to utilize phone messages, email blasts, and text messages to deliver important information district-wide.

Since our emergency messaging system is based upon contact information recorded in our student information database, it is important that we have accurate and updated information to ensure that messages can be delivered. Should you wish to add new contact information, or verify existing information, such as phone numbers and email addresses, please contact/visit your local school site office.

Cell phone users who have a number on file with the district/school sites, may receive an SMS text message asking you to “opt in” to continue receiving messages by text. Please be sure to follow the instructions to opt in, as this is an important service utilized by our emergency messaging system.

If you do not receive the test message as scheduled, please contact your local school site to verify the contact information on file.

Our new test protocol will subsequently be conducted at least annually to ensure the proper functioning of our system.

Emergency Alert System - SMS Text Message Instructions

Recently the City of South San Francisco adopted a resolution affirming the City’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. With "Diversity is in our DNA" as an initial slogan, Council Member Karyl Matsumoto, is convening a series of meetings to help shape our strategy for conveying the message that South San Francisco has always been and will continue to be a welcoming city to all! 


Board President Rosa Govea Acosta will join Councilmember Matsumoto to host the first "community forum" with the Latino community. This is the first of future events that will shape a community-based effort to foster diversity and inclusion.

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!



Shawnterra Moore, Ed.D.
