General SFUSD question?
The Lowell Wellness Center
The Wellness Program is here to support you during your high school years. Being a teenager can be tough, but finding acceptance, support, and resources doesn't have to be! Wellness services are free, non-judgmental, and confidential. Our team is made up of a social worker, a nurse, a community health outreach worker, and mental health professionals to holistically support your social, emotional, and physical well-being.
How to report and absence
There are a few changes in regards to attendance this year. We will not be accepting any physical absence notes in the office this year. Please note that all notices to excuse absences can be submitted via email to Ms. Ross-Davis at LHSAttendance@sfusd.edu or you may also use the following complete the Parent's Verification of Student Absence Form.

Still can't find what you are looking for?
Other "Looking for something" tips:
First, if you are looking for something and it happens to be on the new website, a quick suggestion is to type some key words into the Search tool under "SFUSD" on each page.
Second, on a given webpage, most computer operating systems have a "Find" function to search through the text in a browser (Chrome, Firefox, etc), so if there is too much detail to look through to find what you are looking for, consider using the Find function of you computer (Command+F on an Apple computer, Ctrl+F on a Windows operating system.) On the Apple OSX, Command+G will "find the next instance" of what you are searching for, Ctrl+G on Windows in a browser.
