Free Meals for Youth Ages 18 and Under

Student Nutrition Services will be offering one breakfast and one lunch to youth at no cost at schools with summer programming throughout June and July. Select school sites are also open to youth in the community for meals. This means that any youth (18 years and under) can access a meal at these select open sites, regardless of enrollment in the summer program. All meals must be eaten at the school site (no grab n’ go meals or taking meals off site allowed).

October 2023 PSAT / NMSQT: SSD Accommodations

For the 2023-2024 school year the PSAT / NMSQT will be offered for any interested SFUSD students in 10th and 11th grade in the 2023-24 school year in mid-October 2023. The PSAT will be offered in one location at Lowell High School. High Schools will support students with registering in the fall when we are back in school.


UC/CSU and many other universities are no longer accepting SAT for consideration for admission and the PSAT is completely optional. If you have questions about whether the PSAT is right for you, please see your High School counselor. If the PSAT / NMSQT is offered on Wednesday, students that choose to participate will be given an excused absence.
