News and Announcements
As usual, Walk and Roll to School Day is the first Wednesday of the month. Please join in on Wednesday, March 1, and get some exercise on your way to school!

We are excited to share that the district is transitioning from School Loop to Synergy’s Gradebook Family and Student Portals in August 2017. This transition to Synergy will provide SFUSD’s students, families, teachers, and district staff with a unified system for real-time information on classes, grades, assignments, and more. While we know change can be challenging, we firmly believe the transition to Synergy Gradebook will increase efficiency for teachers and improve access for our students and families.
What does this mean for students and families?
Why are we making this change?
What will happen with School Loop?
We are confident that Synergy Gradebook is another exciting step to leverage technology to increase engagement in our school communities, enhance data integrity and security, and better position us for 21st century learning, as outlined in Vision 2025 and our Digital District Plan.

Parent / Teacher Conferences will be scheduled February 27 through March 3. Your child’s teacher will be sending out information about how you can sign up for a slot to meet with them and discuss your child’s progress so far. Please make sure you make time to attend this important meeting as your partnership with us is important for your child’s growth and progress. School will be dismissed one hour early, at 12:50 pm, during Parent / Teacher Conference Week, please make sure you arrange for your child to be picked up early if they do not attend GLO.
