Dear Academy Families,

This is a friendly reminder that on Monday, January 15, 2018 school will be closed due to the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday. Please enjoy the three-day weekend!

We are attaching a copy of our Student and Family Handbook so that you and your child can review together. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the school administration to discuss them. It is very important that you and your child are fully informed regarding standards related to appropriate behavior for a safe and productive school year. 

Many students are eligible for free meals. To see if your child qualifies, please apply online at . It only takes a few minutes to apply! Just remember we always have hot lunches for the students. It is always good to know that the students have this as an option since we know there are times when the students are unable to purchase their lunches or forget to bring their bag lunches to school.

Remember that at you can log-in to the Family Portal to communicate with your student’s teacher, check homework, grades, and attendance. You can also see the school’s calendar of events and receive important reminders. If you have not received your Activation Code in the mail by now, please call the Main Office and ask for one. 

To report an absence, please call the attendance line at: 415-695-5701 or e-mail Mr. Brendan McCarthy at
