Celebrating AAPI Heritage Month
Dear SFUSD Families:

This month in May, we recognize Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month to honor and uplift the many important contributions of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders who are essential to San Francisco’s history, present and future.


In the SFUSD, we want our schools to be places where every student can see and be themselves. We celebrate the diversity of our students and communities. We honor our AAPI communities each day in our public schools. We have to stand together against violence perpetrated against any member of our community, and we have shared resources to navigate conversations about anti-Asian violence against our Asian brothers and sisters.


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