Dear fellow Alumni, 

I hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy, and that you have been able to navigate these times with as much ease as possible. 

SF Day remains strong and steady, and I want to thank you for all you and your families have done. Thanks to our community’s collective generosity, the school has the resources to meet this moment with flexibility and an unwavering commitment to its students, families, and employees. 

In less than two weeks, SF Day designed and transitioned to a full-time distance learning model. Our faculty continues to apply Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) best practices to best serve every student. In addition to re-forecasting budgets for next year to anticipate financial pressures among our current families as the economic climate unfolds, SF Day is continuing to pay all of its employees, both hourly and salaried.  

To help provide financial relief to current families, all alumni gifts raised from Giving Tuesday on May 5 through May 11 will go directly to support SF Day’s Discounted Tuition program this year. Thank you to Bagna Braestrup ‘00 and Laura Jones ‘96 for spearheading this effort. If you would like to make a gift, you can do so through Paypal here or here

As I near the end of my term as Alumni Council President this summer, I am grateful to have been a part of pivotal board decisions, including the adoption of our first DEI statement earlier this year, and our ongoing plans to expand the school’s facility and create housing for faculty.

Finally, I want to thank the Alumni Council for their partnership over the last two years. The programmatic and philanthropic accomplishments we have achieved together rival that of schools twice our age.
