Substitutes are an important educational component in the South San Francisco Unified School District because teachers and paraprofessionals occasionally need a substitute for either professional or personal reasons.
To ensure that the district has a large pool of qualified substitutes available, our Human Resources department continually recruits substitute teachers and paraprofessionals.

This means that although school was cancelled for those two days due to severe weather conditions, the days meet the instructional time requirements set forth by law. Therefore, our current school year calendar will not be modified, and we will not be adding any replacement school days.
