Construction Update Meeting this Thursday 1/28 at 7pm South San Francisco HS Auditorium

Hello Buri Buri Families,

Last week at a school board meeting, the SSFUSD fired the construction company USS Cal Builders currently working on building our school. Notice of that decision is on the SSFUSD website in a press release from Superintendent Moore.

There is a community meeting on Thursday January 28th at 7pm in the SSF High School auditorium to discuss this decision and how it impacts construction of our school. We strongly encourage Buri Buri parents to attend this meeting. Please wear your Buri spiritwear so the district leadership is able to clearly see that Buri Buri families are in the audience.

Also, please feel free to share your concerns about the ongoing construction with us by email or on our facebook page. 

Thank you,
Buri Buri PTA
