You will need proof of a TDAP vaccination before you will be allowed to attend school!
TDAP protects you from Tetanus, Diphtheria, and Pertussis. Pertussis is whooping cough. It is very contagious and can be fatal to babies.
California Law requires you to have your TDAP Vaccination before 7th grade.
Check with your doctor to see if you have already received this vaccine. If not, ask your family to make an appointment NOW so that you can get it before school starts in the fall.
Please get your Tdap vaccination and submit proof to your counselor or Homeroom Teacher.
Students will not be allowed back to school in the Fall without proof of this vaccine.

Shared Savings provides not only the incentive for increasing energy efficient behavior in our schools, but the tools for making sure it happens. Bringing in that curriculum piece, allowing students to participate in and learn from our efforts to make our schools more efficient, will help educate a generation of energy conscious citizens. In the age of climate change, that is an extremely valuable outcome.
Community community meetings for PEEF and Children's Fund
The results of the community meetings concerning the renewal of the Public Education Enrichment Fund (PEEF) and the Children’s Fund which provide over $100 million dollars annually to the children of San Francisco, with more than half going directly to SFUSD, and reports and updates of information can be found on this wiki on the right navigation area http://ourchildren-ourcity.wikispaces.com/.
Remember these funds have provided critical resources for our children and students covering everything from preschool instruction to high school libraries, such as Teacher/School Librarians and Library programs, Physical Education, Music and Arts, Athletics, Wellness Centers, etc.).
When the PTA publishes documents, such as the APG Communications FAQs and Tips and the Restorative Practices Bulletin, the documents will be placed in the Homepage and the Parent group lockers.
Discover summer camps for all ages, summer classes and teen programs.
