2017 Thanksgiving Recess Programs

Thanksgiving

The SF Unified School District (SFUSD) will be closed from November 20 to 24 for Thanksgiving Recess. During the Recess several SFUSD ExCEL After School programs will be open for currently enrolled students. Visit this page on the SFUSD website to find out which ExCEL programs will be open. 

If your child is not enrolled in one of the ExCEL programs that will be open during Thanksgiving Recess, you're in the right place! Below is a list of DCYF grantees that will be open for families in need of childcare during Thanksgiving Recess.
