Note from Principal Daws
Dear Marina Families

I hope you are all doing well at home. We are missing you.
All of our teachers are working on line with your students and we are communicating every other day as a group. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at any time. We are working our way through video conferencing and all sorts of technology possibilities for going forward.
Teachers will be doing grades from home this week.
Here is a link for SFUSD nutrition services who are providing free meals for students during the closure:
Construction continues at school on the first floor although we are all not here.
I will be keeping in touch with you via messenger and Marina Google Groups every few days. 
Stay well.
