Dear fifth grade families,


For the 2017-18 school year,the Board of Education has decided to continue with the current practice for middle school enrollment. Due to a statewide teacher shortage and middle school buildings at capacity, students in fifth grade this year will not receive an automatic assignment for 6th grade. They can still apply to their middle school feeder and, as in the prior school year, they will receive priority.


Please submit your enrollment application by January 13, 2017, listing as many school choices as you like, including the middle school feeder if that is your choice. You can submit the pre-printed application at your child’s current school by January 13, 2017.


Please feel free to speak with a placement counselor from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. any weekday at the Educational Placement Center -- located at 655 DeHaro St. from now through December 16 --  or at 555 Franklin Street, starting December 20.  


We will also be holding informational meetings regarding the elementary to middle school assignment process in November and December:

  • 6 p.m. Monday, November 21, at James Lick Middle School, 1220 Noe Street (sessions will be in English and Spanish)
  • 6 p.m. Monday, November 28, at Martin Luther King Jr. Middle School, 350 Girard Street (sessions will be in English, Spanish and Cantonese)
  • 6 p.m. Thursday, December 1, at Roosevelt Middle School, 460 Arguello Blvd. (sessions will be in English and Cantonese)

More information on middle school feeders is on our FAQ.


We look forward to helping you find the right middle school for your child.


Sincerely,


Myong Leigh
Interim Superintendent
