Buongiorno La Scuola, I hope this finds you well. Like me, you’ve probably heard Gov. Gavin Newsom’s address to the State on Tuesday. Based on that and other considerations, myself and the La Scuola Board of Directors have decided to extend the closure of our campuses until the end of the school year. We do not take this decision lightly and please know that if we do feel it is safe to do so, we will reconsider it and potentially open campus. With that, we, unfortunately, anticipate that...

Buongiorno La Scuola, I hope this finds you well. As you have probably heard already, the California Superintendent announced yesterday that the public schools in California will be closed until the end of the school year. And as you probably also know, the San Francisco Public School District had announced that their schools will be closed until May 1, which is what we are also planning to do as La Scuola. We are monitoring the situation closely and we will be giving you as much... Read More

  Buona Domenica La Scuola,  As we move into week 2 of our online learning at La Scuola, I just want you to take a minute to appreciate the good things about the shutdown, which may have been for you to spend more time with your children on this Sunday and Saturday and maybe even during the week. Moving to a completely new way of life isn’t easy for anyone. This is turning all of our worlds upside down but I do believe we can also learn from this and again be more united even more than we...

Dear La Scuola Community, As the Board of Directors, we could not be prouder of how La Scuola’s leadership, faculty and staff have beautifully demonstrated our mantra Niente Senza Gioia, Nothing Without Joy, as our community transitioned from face-to-face learning to online learning. All of our children - preschool through grade eight - excitedly logged into virtual classrooms for their morning circles, shared buds and thorns with their teachers and friends, and understood that while their new...
