Superintendent's Message on Coronavirus 3-12-20

Dear SSFUSD Community,

As the South San Francisco Unified School District continues to work closely with the San Mateo County Health Department and the San Mateo County Office of Education in our preparedness and response to coronavirus, the wellness of our staff and students is our top priority.

Out of an abundance of caution, and per guidance from the County Health Department, SSFUSD is canceling all non-essential events at all SSFUSD schools. This update regarding non-essential events is effective today, March 12th, and remains in effect indefinitely. We will update you with any future changes.

Please visit our district website at www.ssfusd.org to see an updated list of district or school events canceled or rescheduled below.


Events considered “non-essential” that may be canceled, postponed and/or modified include, but are not limited to:

  • After-hours, school-hosted or seasonal activities
  • Large gatherings for trainings or conferences
  • Certain field trips depending on the type of location and space configurations
  • Large school assemblies, concerts, performing arts events, etc. unless modifications are made
  • Facility rentals by outside groups

Please note that this announcement does not pertain to our instructional calendar, as all schools remain open as regularly scheduled.

It remains important to observe the following health and hygiene practices to limit the spread of coronavirus as well as other types of germs that can lead to sickness:

  • Stay home when sick.
  • Remain at home until fever has been gone for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medicines.
  • Seek immediate medical care if symptoms become more severe (e.g., high fever or difficulty breathing).
  • Avoid close contact with those with cold and flu-like symptoms.
  • Practice proper hygiene etiquette and cover your nose/mouth when coughing and sneezing with a flexed elbow or with a tissue or sleeve. Throw the used tissue into the trash.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
  • Wash hands thoroughly and frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains 60%–95% alcohol.
  • Soap and water should be used if hands are visibly dirty.
  • It is especially important to clean hands after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose.
