PARENT REGISTRATION DIRECTIONS FOR SCHOOL LOOP

ALL STUDENTS HAVE ACCOUNTS SET UP BY THE DISTRICT. PARENTS HAVE TO REGISTER FOR THEIR OWN ACCOUNTS IF THEY DO NOT ALREADY HAVE AN ACCOUNT. THOSE PARENTS WHO  HAVE A 7TH OR 8TH GRADE IN ATTENDANCE AND HAVE AN ACCOUNT FOLLOW DIRECTIONS BELOW FOR ADD STUDENT.

 

  • Go to school webpage at http://apg-sfusd-ca.schoolloop.com/
  • Scroll down until you see the "Register Now" on left side, click.
  • If you want the registration form in Spanish or Chinese instead of English, click on that language.
  • For the registration form in English, click on parent registration
  • Use your OWN name in the top two lines.
  • Student ID # = the characters are all NUMBERS. This number can be found on your child’s class schedule or report card.

Parents can add additional children to their account by clicking on the Add Student link from the Tool Box at the top right of their Portal Page.

School Loop is a valuable way for teachers to communicate with the parent community. Students will be more successful if parents and caregivers are informed and in the Loop. Once registered, parents will receive a daily email when teachers post assignments, progress reports, and school news published for parents.

 


These instructions are also posted in the Locker In the lower right corner on this page.

INCOMING 7TH GRADERS!!!!

ARE YOU READY FOR 7TH GRADE????

http://www.shotsforschool.org/

 

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-logo-7.png

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.

PTA Documents

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.
