Class of 2020

Material return

Students in AP Giannini's Class of 2020 who borrowed materials from the school are expected to return those non-tech items (books, instruments, uniforms, etc.).

Students who borrowed tech (computers and/or WiFi hotspots) and are still attending SFUSD high schools should continue using those devices during distance learning. Students who no longer attend SFUSD schools need to return tech ASAP.

The school is available for drop offs on the following days and times:

  • Monday, September 21, 1:30-4:30 pm
  • Tuesday, September 22, 1:30-4:30 pm
  • Thursday, September 24, 1:30-4:30 pm
  • Friday, September 25, 1:30-4:30 pm

Materials will be dropped off using the building doors located near the Main Office. People dropping off materials must wear a mask and maintain 6 feet social distance while waiting to drop off materials.

We may be announcing more drop off days in the future. Please check again here for future dates.

Locker clean out

We will be allowing students from the AP Giannini Class of 2020 to enter the building to ​clean out their locker​s, gather their things, and return any items that belong to the school (library books, classroom books, textbooks, instruments, etc.)

Giannini will be open the following days for 2nd floor locker clean out:

  • Monday, September 21, 1:30-4:30 pm
  • Tuesday, September 22, 1:30-4:30 pm
  • Thursday, September 24, 1:30-4:30 pm
  • Friday, September 25, 1:30-4:30 pm

*There is ​NO Access to the 3rd & 4th Floor Lockers!!!​ (they are under construction)
*We will make another announcement when those ​3rd and 4th floor lockers​ become available (they will not be cut)...

If you do not clean-out your locker and remove your lock during this time period, your lock will be cut and items that do not belong to the school will be stored or donated…

If you forgot your locker combo, Mr. Backstrom will be available to cut locks.

Students​ must enter through the ​Main Office Entrance​ ​and ​go upstairs ​to the 2nd floor and exit downstairs through the doors by the PE Locker Rooms (no 3rd/4th floor lockers)

After you have cleaned out your hallway locker, you will proceed to your PE locker, then exit through the doors in that area. Any school items from your lockers will be dropped off in bins by the PE locker room hallway, before you exit the building.

Use the markings on the sidewalk, to line up using proper distancing if a line should form.

Student Guidelines for Entering and Exiting the building
You must wear a face-covering to enter Giannini and throughout the entire time you are there. You must maintain a safe distance at all times.
● Parents will ​only​ be allowed into the building if the student is unable to come to the school. (​Parents will not be allowed to enter the school otherwise​).
● No more than 5-10 students at a time will be allowed to enter the building
● Any trash or food in your locker must be put in the trash bins as you are exiting the building.
● Any lockers that are not emptied by the end of the locker clean out dates (*with the exception of 3rd and 4th floors), ​the locks will be cut and any items that do not belong to the school will be stored or donated to Goodwill.
● Remember NO Access to 3rd and 4th floors
