SFUSD continues to monitor the air quality index for the City and County of San Francisco for the week of Oct. 16. Principals are getting regular updates regarding precautions they should take, including bringing activities indoors when the air quality is orange or red and monitoring students with asthma and other health conditions. As the forecast changes during the school day or at any time during this week, an update will be provided to principals right away. Check the current the air quality index at airnow.gov.

 

三藩市聯合校區將繼續監測本週三藩市內的空氣品質指數。各校校長會定期獲得有關相應預防措施的最新消息,包括當空氣品質達橙色或紅色級別時,把所有活動安排在室內進行,以及監察患哮喘及其他健康狀況學生的情況。若空氣品質預測在上學日期間或本週任何時間出現變化,我們會立即向所有校長提供更新資訊。你可上網到airnow.gov查閱最新的空氣品質指數。

 

El SFUSD continúa monitorizando el índice de calidad del aire para la Ciudad y el Condado de San Francisco durante la semana del 16 de octubre. Los directores reciben actualizaciones periódicas con respecto a las precauciones que deben tomar, incluso realizar las actividades dentro de las instalaciones cuando la calidad del aire es naranja o roja y vigilar los estudiantes con asma y otras condiciones de salud. Conforme el pronóstico cambie durante el día escolar o en cualquier momento durante esta semana, de inmediato se proporcionarán actualizaciones a los directores. Verifique el índice actual de calidad del aire en airnow.gov.

826 Valencia is proud to announce our ninth weekend-long personal statement tutoring event, The Great San Francisco Personal Statement Weekend, will be held on October 21 and 22 at Mission High School. We invite all SFUSD high school seniors to register for a weekend of free college essay help.

 

Here’s how it works: during the weekend of October 21 and 22, 826 Valencia will have trained tutors on call to give one-on-one attention to students who are writing responses to the UC's Personal Insight Questions, Common Application essays, and scholarship essays. We're prepared to support students at all stages of the writing process, whether they’re just starting, almost finished, or somewhere in between. We’ll also have computers on hand for easy editing and brain food to keep them going.

 

Registering for the event as a student is easy and free—just follow this link for more information and to sign up. You can choose to attend one or two two-hour session(s) on either or both days. Advance registration is required so we can best prepare to meet each student's individual needs.

 

Save the date and spread the word! Last year we served 191 students over the weekend, and this year we are hoping to exceed 200. Seniors: Don't miss this opportunity to polish your personal statements, making them clear, powerful, meaningful, memorable, and effective at getting you into college!

Scythe by Neal Shusterman


A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery: humanity has conquered all those things, even death. Now Scythes are the only ones who can end life—and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep the size of the population under control. Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe. These teens must master the “art” of taking life, knowing that failure could mean losing their own.
