    Superintendent's Message on Temporary Student Dismissals 3-13-20

    Dear SSFUSD Community,

    As we continue to work closely with the San Mateo County Department of Health (SMCDH), the San Mateo County Office of Education (SMCOE), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), we are continuing to monitor the rapidly changing circumstances pertaining to Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
    Out of an abundance of caution and for the safety and well-being of our community, we have decided to dismiss our students from school beginning Monday, March 16th through Friday, April 3rd, with continuity of education and operations. This means that all school-related activities will be canceled, including classes, athletics, arts, clubs, and planned field trips. Students are not to be on campus during this time, and staff will practice safe hygiene/health protocols and social distancing while on campus. During the closure, we will continue to work with the health departments and will gain a better understanding of our situation. We will also use the time to do a thorough and deep cleaning of our campuses. We are tentatively expecting students to return to school on Monday April 6th.
    During this period of closure, all student absences are considered to be excused.
    We will be changing our instructional program to an at-home distributive learning model. Under this arrangement, students are to be at home while receiving teacher-created, standards-based instruction through a variety of means including readings, worksheets, packets, research/project-based assignments, or instruction which may be delivered electronically.
    Schools will be communicating instructions about at-home learning within the coming days. At-home distributive learning is expected to begin Wednesday, March 18th, and continuing until our regular instruction resumes, as tentatively expected on Monday, April 6th. Please note that instruction will not be provided during Spring Break, March 23rd - 27th.
    We know this news may cause understandable concern. While it is not our intent to cause undue alarm or disruption to our students’ learning, the District has decided to act conservatively and in the best interest of our community members in announcing this closure. Our desire is to continue to be transparent with you and communicate what we know as frequently as possible.
    Healthy Habits
    It remains important to observe the following health and hygiene practices to limit the spread of COVID-19 as well as other types of illness:

    • Stay home when sick.
    • Remain at home until fever has been gone for at least 24 hours without the use of fever-reducing medicines.
    • Seek immediate medical care if symptoms become more severe (e.g., high fever or difficulty breathing).
    • Avoid close contact with those with cold and flu-like symptoms.
    • Practice proper hygiene etiquette and cover your nose/mouth when coughing and sneezing with a flexed elbow or with a tissue or sleeve. Throw the used tissue into the trash.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.
    • Wash hands thoroughly and frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains 60%–95% alcohol.
    • Soap and water should be used if hands are visibly dirty.
    • It is especially important to clean hands after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose.

    Call Center and Hotline
    As a reminder, the San Mateo County Health Department has a public call center for general, non-medical questions about the virus. The current contact number is 211 and the operating hours are 7:00am to 7:00pm from Monday through Friday.
    If you believe you have come in contact with someone directly who has been diagnosed with the virus, then you should see your physician immediately and contact the CDC hotline at 650-363-4422.

    Senior-Junior Ball Postponed

    Site administrators recently met with district administration to discuss the postponement of prom to Friday, May 15th.  The location will likely be the Galleria.  The price associated with having prom at the Galleria compared to SF City Hall is basically the same.  The price will remain at the current rate and will not increase.  The parent liability waiver will be updated to reflect the date and venue and will still be required.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding as we balance finding ways for students to still have opportunities like this while making decisions that are consistent with guidelines communicated by county health officials to all superintendents in the area.

    Any changes to events like prom will continue to be evaluated and updates will be given in a timely manner. All tickets that have already been sold are valid for the May 15th prom date and location.  Any inquiries about refunds can be made with our ASB student leaders or in room 13A.  Ticket sales will resume at a later day - more information will come from our ASB student leaders.

    ECHS Softball Field

    Good afternoon El Camino Family!

    I am happy to announce that construction on our new Softball field will begin on Monday, November 4th.  We are very excited that our softball players will be able to practice and play games on our campus in the near future.  The coaches, athletic directors, players, and their families/friends have worked hard over the past several years to advocate for our student-athletes and to communicate the need for this field.  We are grateful to our Board Trustees and the SSFUSD Facilities department for making this a reality. The new Softball field will be an artificial turf field that will be installed on the outdoor basketball court area near the small gym (see flyer). 

    The construction will likely take place during the next several months.  During construction the pedestrian and drive-in gates off of Evergreen (near the three-way stop intersection) will be only for construction access.  Students, staff, and community members will NOT be able to use that pedestrian gate to access the school during construction. Updates on progress and other important information will be communicated in the future.  Thank you for your cooperation.

    Sincerely,

    Daniel Lunt, ECHS Principal
