Happy Fall!

Dear Students:


We hope the school year has been treating you well so far! We recently celebrated World Mental Health Day on Oct. 10. We want to remind you that your schools and our city and community partners always have resources available. Also, this week is Digital Agency Week, so you will likely be learning more about technology topics in your classrooms.


Read on for some bright spots in our high schools, fun events, leadership opportunities, college exploration, and more!


In Community,

Karen at SFUSD Student News


P.S. Thank you to our Student Delegates for sharing more about their roles and the Student Advisory Council last month! You'll hear from them again next month and going forward.

Get Your Updated COVID-19 Booster

The FDA has authorized the updated booster for Moderna for adults 6 years and older and for Pfizer for those 5 years and older. Everyone 5+ who has had their primary series should get the updated booster at least 2 months following any COVID vaccine or booster dose. The updated booster increases immunity against the newer Omicron variants, which account for most current cases.
