Celebrating Black History Month
Dear SFUSD Families:
As a school district that values diversity, we believe Black History should be celebrated 365 days a year-- 366 in a leap year. The diverse histories, experiences, stories, and voices of Black people should be recognized, honored and uplifted every day. 

We are proud that there are many examples of how our school communities in SFUSD are uplifting the achievements and history of Black Americans all year and especially during this month of February.


I also want to wish you a Happy Lunar New Year and Gong Hei Fat Choy! In this year of the Tiger, let's live our shared SFUSD value of fearlessness!


Learn more about the latest SFUSD resources, opportunities, and bright spots in this month's family and community newsletter.

In Community,
Superintendent Dr. Vincent Matthews
