    Safety Notice

    Your child's safety is our number one priority! PLEASE help us keep you and your child safe by making sure you always use the cross walk when attempting to cross the street. Please watch our Safety Patrol and cross the street when the Safety Patrol signals that it is safe.

    We know it is very difficult to enter and exit our parking lot at peak times and we ask that reserved parking is left for our staff and that you park on the street if you are volunteering or visiting our school. 

    Thank you for your continued support!

    Student Allergies

    We have many students that have been diagnosed with severe allergies to common things such as peanuts, fish, tree nuts, milk, gluten, grass, bee stings, etc. Allergic reactions range from mild skin irritation to anaphylactic shock. Peanuts and tree nuts produce the strongest reactions for our students. Staff personnel have taken steps to keep our students as safe as possible while they are at school, but once again we are asking for assistance form our community. Please screen the items that you send with your child for snack and/or lunch - even trace amounts of the above items can have very serious consequences. We appreciate your assistance in helping to keep our environment as safe as possible for all of our students.

    BIG Thanks to our PTA for providing the school another great Fall Festival.  Students and parents came in with their costumes where our students were able to participate in a costume contest.  Games and food filled the night and in the end raffle prizes were awarded to the winners!.  

    Red Ribbon Week Awareness was a week filled with activities that engaged our staff and students to think about healthier choices in life.  Some of the activities included door themed decorations for all of the classrooms, a day where both students and staff went out of their way to fill each other's bucket with kindness, and SSPD officers heading the Run for Life activity with all of the classes.  Thank you to all of the officers that supported Martin!

    Ruby Bridges Resolution

    Spearheaded by the 5th grade students, they set on a mission to be a positive force in our community and spread the bravery of one Ruby Bridges who was the symbol of the civil rights movement at the age of six.  The courage of Ms. Bridges who was the youngest of a group of African American students were in full display as they attended a school that was not integrated at that time.  This bravery had left a powerful and lasting impression with our students as they wanted to honor her courage and the change that followed as far as providing equality in our education system.  The students were able to gather over 1,000 signatures from students, parents, and community members and submitted a proposal to our Board of Trustees.  On May 10, 2018, all Board of Trustees present voted unanimously to pass the resolution and making November 14th as Ruby Bridges Day at SSFUSD.  The way we can honor this day, we are looking for 100% attendance in our school district.  

    We want to thank all of the students, parents, community members, and school district leaders for being able to show their support and making the Ruby Bridges Day happen.  Go Meteors....and let us circle November 14, 2018 on our calendars.....let us aim for 100% attendance!!!
