***We begin the 2020-21 school year with Distance Learning. Please refer to my weekly emails for updates. Thank you.***
Welcome to a new school year!
I hope you had a restful summer break with your family! Whether you are a new or a returning family, I hope you are getting ready to join us for a unique school year ahead at Francis Scott Key. As always, I am very proud to be a part of this exceptional community and excited to continue our work with our students and families.
To kick off the school year, our dedicated staff will be working the week before school starts for professional development and planning. Our staff will continue efforts to implement strategies that support all students both in academic skills and social emotional development. Our S.T.E.A.M. education has allowed us to align learning activities to the visions of our school and SFUSD of building 21st century skills and the graduate profile. We are confident our students will continue to thrive and to have a successful, productive year!
• Morning Announcements: We will share weekly messages on Mondays, with important announcements and other information. Parents/Guardians, please read all emails from myself, Ms. Page, your child(ren)’s educators and our PTA Board. Please also check our website for updates on all community announcements.
• Daily Schedule: Distance Learning starts at 8:30am. Please check in with your child(ren)’s educators for their detailed schedule.
• School-home Communication: To be environmentally-friendly and to conserve resources, we are moving into digital communication. Our school website was updated in 2018. All PTA flyers and school announcements, with the exception of forms that require signatures, will be posted on our website for your access at your convenience. If you do not have access to our website, please let your students’ teachers know. We will try to accommodate the various needs accordingly.
Under the leadership of FSK PTA Executive Board, we have designed a series of community events for families to get involved and connected. Please view our calendar on the home page to stay updated on all our school events. Your commitment to the school community is what makes the school a unique place for our children to learn, grow and thrive. Our dedicated and energetic teachers and staff are ready to work with all our students once again this year. We are looking forward to seeing you all virtually and in person, once it’s safe. Thank you for being so fantastic and amazing!
All the best,
Mimi Kasner, Principal
