Celebrating Women's History Month
Dear SFUSD Families:
Happy Women's History Month! Around the world, millions of people celebrate Women’s History Month in March. SFUSD continues to celebrate and uplift women, and gender diversity-- by ensuring that our students learn about and celebrate women, and by striving to have inclusive school communities. 
March is also National School Social Worker Month. San Francisco public schools are fortunate to have many different types of staff who support students and create a welcoming school environment. I want to extend my appreciation for our social workers who are helping foster hope and resilience for our students, and connecting families to important resources. 
Learn more about the latest SFUSD resources, opportunities, and bright spots in this month's family and community newsletter.
With gratitude,
Superintendent Dr. Vincent Matthews
