Approved: Grades 3-5 & 6-8 Return to Mission Campus

Friday, October 2, 2020

Dear La Scuola Community,

I am delighted to announce that we received full approval from the San Francisco Department of Public Health this afternoon to reopen our Mission Campus for Grades 3-5 and 6-8. 

Our first day of on-campus learning will be Wednesday, Oct. 14 for Grades 3-5 and Wednesday, Oct. 28 for Grades 6-8. The Health Department is requiring that we open our programs two weeks apart. Distance Learning will align with these dates as well. 

Specific details about Grades 3-5 return, including schedules and drop off and pick up procedures, will be shared on Friday, Oct. 9. Details about the return of Grades 6-8 will be shared on Friday, Oct. 23. Distance Learning families will also receive details about your first day of learning on the days mentioned, depending on your grade.

As we begin to transition back to in-person learning, our primary focus will be the health and safety of our entire community. Our faculty and staff have been preparing for this return and we are confident that through our collective efforts, it will be a smooth transition back to campus. Please take a few moments to review our Community Pledge and the commitment we have all made to follow safe and healthy practices, especially as we prepare to return. Let’s continue to approach this process with optimism, flexibility, empathy, and kindness. 

We have missed your children greatly and we are very excited to welcome them back to campus. Thank you for your patience and partnership as we move forward with the reopening. 

Niente Senza Gioia!
