Important News

11/15/18

Dear SSFUSD Community:

According to the most current Bay Area Air Quality Management District’s air alert, the northern CA wildfire in Butte County is continuing to cause unpredictable air quality levels throughout the Bay Area. As the fire has continued to be active with only partial containment, our unhealthy air quality levels have persisted throughout the week. As a result, our schools have been following our limited outdoor activity protocol since Friday, November 9th.

The health and welfare of our students and staff continues to be our top priority.


Due to the persisting air quality conditions, and out of an abundance of caution, we have determined that our schools will be closed tomorrow, Friday, November 16th. (All students and school site staff)

While we are following the Air Quality Forecast, we will also be actively monitoring conditions in South San Francisco and all local areas of our schools. If conditions change, we will post an update and communicate with our schools to ensure our community remains informed.


Click here to see our past updates from Friday 11/9 and Tuesday 11/13 for additional information.

About Peachjar eflyers

In the past, our schools sent home loads of flyers in students’ backpacks. As part of our efforts to be more environmentally friendly and to embrace innovative technology, we have moved from paper to a digital flyer delivery.

With our Peachjar eflyer program, the eflyers will be sent directly to parents’ email inboxes as well as posted on school websites for easy access. All flyers may be accessed by clicking on the   logo. 

Each year, our schools will save tons of paper and reduce copy costs by thousands of dollars. In addition, paperless delivery of school flyers removes a significant administrative burden from teachers, office staff, and volunteers.

School and school district-approved eflyers will keep you informed about upcoming school activities, programs, and events. And our children's backpacks will be a little bit lighter!

Badminton Players of the Year: Jakin and Raeka Lin

By Nathan Mollat Daily Journal Staff

 

A year after winning the 2016 Central Coast Section and CIF Northern California girls’ doubles badminton titles, Jakin and Raeka Lin were nowhere to be found in the 2017 postseason.

“Last year, we had a history competition that went to state (finals),” said Jakin Lin, who recently graduated South San Francisco High School. “It was the same weekend as the PAL tournament, so we couldn’t play.”

Despite being one best doubles teams in Northern California, the only way to qualify for the section tournament is through a league tournament. Since they did not compete in the PALs in 2017, they were ineligible to play at CCS.

“This year, we chose badminton over history,” Jakin said.

Much to the chagrin of the rest of Northern California. After capturing the PAL title, the Lin sisters won their second CCS championship in three years. They could not duplicate their 2016 Nor Cal championship in 2018. They did, however, make it to the finals and solidify their selection as the Daily Journal’s Badminton Players of the Year.

“We kind of knew we wanted to play together again,” Jakin said. “We just wanted to live up to what we did in 2016 and I wanted to play with my sister one last time.”

As anyone with siblings knows, it can sometime be a burden to be with your brother or sister all the time. So to avoid any kind of burnout on the badminton court, the sisters split their play during the regular season. Raeka continued to play singles, moving into the No. 1 spot, while Jakin teamed with Katrina Hui to play at No. 1 girls’ doubles.

“I just wanted to rely on myself,” said Raeka Lin, who will enter her senior year at South City in the fall. “Whenever I play doubles, I always feel like I had to depend on someone else.”

Jakin, on the other hand, was looking to change things up for her senior year. After three years of playing singles during the regular season, she wanted a different challenge during her last season of high school.

“For senior year I wanted to play doubles and get closer to my teammates,” Jakin said. “Sometimes when we play too much together, we start to argue a bit more. … [Playing doubles together all season] would have been too much.”

But once the postseason rolled around, the two became the dynamic duo. The pair was seeded No. 2 in the CCS girls’ doubles tournament, behind Milpitas’ Zoe Lu and Katelin Ngo. The Lins cruised through their first two matches, winning in straight sets, setting up a winner’s bracket final with the Milpitas duo. The Lins dropped the first set, 21-10, but rallied to win the next two sets, 21-9 and 21-13, to move into the championship match.

They had to wait for Lu and Ngo to come through the consolation bracket of the double-elimination final to meet Lu and Ngo again in the championship round. And like they did in their first meeting, the South City tandem dropped the first set. But like they did in their previous match, the Lins finished strong, winning the CCS title with a 15-21, 21-16, 21-11 victory.

“Since we both knew our opponents, and had played against them in (junior) tournaments, we knew it was going to be tough,” Raeka said of facing the top-seeded Trojans.

By making the CCS finals, the Lins had already assured themselves a spot in the Nor Cal tournament and, like they did in 2016, the Lins made a beeline to the Nor Cal championship match. After a first-round bye, the Lins cruised in their second-round match, winning 21-16, 21-11 and again in the semifinals, 21-15, 21-14 to advance to the title match.

Unlike the 2016 tournament, the 2018 Nor Cal tournament changed to a single-elimination format. So when the Lins got to the 2016 championship match through the winner’s bracket, they had to be beaten twice to be denied the crown. They did lose that first match, but rebounded to win the title in the finale.

The 2018 edition was single-elimination, however, and while the Lins advanced to the championship match, they were denied by a team from Mission San Jose-Fremont. It was only their second loss in 16 CCS and Nor Cal matches.

“I think our playing styles are pretty different. I’m more about smashing in the back and my sister is better at placing the bird,” Jakin said. “Together we make a pretty good team.”
