Just to check in!

Please watch for a phone call from one of your Sam Brannan teachers this week. It is part of the SCUSD’s plan to check in and see how families are doing during the shelter in place.

Teachers will be calling from their own phones, so it may say “Private Caller” for the ID.  Calls may begin Monday Morning.
