Principal's Corner


Dear Friends,

Happy New Year!  I look forward to the exciting learning and community activities we have planned for the remainder of this school year.  Some activities that we have coming up are our Pancake Breakfast and Used Book Sale, Upper Grade Overnight Field Trips, Student Council Spirit Days, Author's Day, and much more. 

Remember that school begins at 7:50 am and ends at 1:50 pm.  Be sure to use Stop, Drop and Go! to safely drop your children off to school each day. 

For a day to day look into what is happening at our AWESOME school, follow me on Twitter at @DFESPrincipal.


Yours in education,
Michelle Chang

Information about Measles for Parents

There has been a recent outbreak of measles in California and neighboring states. The San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH) and the San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) have collaborated to offer free measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccines to current SFUSD students. All families are encouraged to first seek care with their primary health care provider, if they have one.

If your child needs a vaccine, contact the School Health Center at 415-242-2615 for more information or go to one of our onsite clinics. Find out more about measles vaccinations and where to get them.
