We have a rich tradition of delivering a strong academic curriculum to our diverse student population. We involve our students in meaningful school experiences that promote the joy of learning while addressing students' individual needs.
Welcome to a new academic year students and families!
As our summer vacation is coming to a rapid end, I'd like to take a quick moment to welcome everyone back to another exciting academic year for 2014-15! The first day of school is scheduled for Monday, August 18th. Our bell schedule will remain the same in that the first bell rings at 8:25am and the tardy bell rings at 8:30. All students should be prepared for learning from day 1 with materials, school uniform and a positive attitude.
All students will collect their schedules from the designated tables on the lower yard during the morning prior to the first bell. Sixth grade students and families (along with any new 7th or 8th grade students new to James Lick) will join us in the auditorium at the sound of the 8:30am bell. Students will be expected to be in compliance with our uniform policy, which is a white collared top and black colored bottoms. In addition, official JLMS gear (black t-shirts bearing the JLMS Bulldog logo) sold by our PTSA is also permitted to be worn in lieu of the white collared top. The results from our survey showed an overwhelming support to keep and maintain our student uniform. Sorry kids!
Parents (& students), we will no longer use the 25th Street gate for pick up/drop off during the am/pm times. Please pick up/drop off your children in the front of the building so that students may walk along the side and enter through the Clipper Street gate. We know this will be slightly different, but as we prepare for construction, we want to make sure everyone becomes accustomed to using the Clipper Street gate. Parents, we would like to remind you to be courteous to our neighbors and not create a "parking lot" in front of the building, especially when picking up your child after school. We ask that you not park and wait for your child on the street in front of the school. Please continue to circle around the building until you see your child. This helps keep the traffic moving and it keeps our neighbors happy. Also, DO NOT PARK in the white zone! Our buses need this area to load and unload. Your cooperation is extremely appreciated.
More information will come soon. Be on the lookout for a welcome back letter in your mailbox. If you do not receive a welcome back letter, we do not have your current address on file. Please make sure we get this information updated as it is extremely important!
Thank you and enjoy the rest of the summer!

All students and parents should use the crosswalks when crossing the street. Be aware of traffic around the school. Students should be dropped off at the white zone on Noe Street. There are crossing guards at Clipper and Noe as well as Castro and 25th Street. Please DO NOT drop off on Clipper Street- it is a very busy street. Cars parked in the white zone on Noe Street will be ticketed by SF DPT as this is a drop off only zone.
Tip: there is less traffic around the school at 8:15 am vs 8:25 am.
