A Note from the Principal
Dear St. Anne Families,
Join us at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, May 29 for our school's Centennial Graduation. We were all hoping that we could be gathering together in our church for this celebration, but our virtual celebration still gives us the opportunity to recognize our outstanding graduates and wish them the very best as they leave us to go off to high school.
Please be sure to join us this coming Monday evening at 7:00 p.m. for our last SAPTO meeting where next year's board will be installed and we recognize our Graduate Parents. Please see the link and information about the meeting below.

AGREE OR DISAGREE...LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD
All San Francisco principals received this information from the Archdiocese. We were asked to pass it along to our parents so you can express your opinion to the Mayor and Board of Supervisors. This proposal was put forth by Richmond District Supervisor Sandra Fewer to put homeless encampments in Golden Gate Park. I, personally, do not think that officially sanctioning homeless encampments in Golden Gate Park is a good idea. Dianne Feinstein is opposed to this policy and has written a letter opposing it.. Please see opinions and thoughts below.
This is a link to a column by CW Nevius and a Next Door post with all the information including contact information for elected officials.
Sandra Fewer (Supervisor Richmond District) is proposing allowing tent encampments in Golden Gate Park. Here's part of her announcement:
"My staff and I have been working to create safe places for those sleeping on our streets, including the hotel rooms and other alternative housing sites the City is currently scaling up. At today's meeting of the Board of Supervisors, I announced that Supervisor Mar and I are working with the City Attorney to explore emergency legislation that would open up suitable public sites, including on land owned by Rec Park, for the purpose of establishing safe sleeping sites.
70% of Golden Gate Park is in our district, and I have identified specific areas which could be perfect for safe sleeping sites. These sites would provide bathrooms and enough room for tents to be spaced out so that residents could have access to the hygiene and social distancing practices necessary to prevent the spread of COVID-19, which is our top priority. Though this is not a permanent solution to homelessness and not as good as a hotel room, it is certainly better than leaving our unhoused folks crowded on our sidewalks. I look forward to exploring this further with Supervisor Mar and the City Attorney and hope to have legislation ready for introduction by next week."
Since Supervisor Fewer's announcement, the legislation has been drafted and is pending committee action.
What do you think? Let our mayor and our supervisors know your opinion. Phil Ginsburg is the head of Rec & Parks and it would be good if he heard our opinions prior to responding to the Supervisor's legislation.
You can also send a copy of your email to the Clerk for the Board of Supervisors and request that it be included as Public Comment in the record for the next meeting of the full board:
