South San Francisco Unified schools closed Thursday due to storm
South San Francisco Unified School District schools will be closed Thursday due to the major storm expected to hit the state today.
“According to the National Weather Service, a major storm will hit the Bay Area at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 4,” said Superintendent Shawnterra Moore. “Based on this information and out of an abundance of caution, our district is planning to cancel classes on Thursday, Jan. 5.”
The district serves the communities of Daly City, South San Francisco and San Bruno.
The storm is expected to bring heavy rain and high winds that could result in flooding and power outages that impact roads and make driving difficult, according to a press release from the district. Consequently, all extracurricular and athletic activities scheduled for today and Thursday have been canceled.
“Jan. 4 is a minimum day, and we highly encourage families to pick up their children from school as soon as possible and to be off the roads and home by 3 p.m. on that day,” Moore said.
After school care will be available this afternoon for essential workers who are unable to take time off, but there will be no extended care services on Thursday.
