Dear parents and guardians, 


Family Portal debuted in Fall 2017, and since this is a new tool, we want to hear from you about your experience with Family Portal as a parent or guardian. We’ve worked with Parents for Public Schools of SF to develop a survey, and the information we collect will help us as we continually work to improve your Family Portal experience.


Please fill out this short survey, available in English, Chinese and Spanish, before June 8 to give us feedback!



I hope you are all well. I am sending this message to the 6th and 7th-grade families. We are getting ready for the 8th-grade Graduation Ceremony on June 4th. The graduation ceremony will be held at Everett Middle School from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

It is a James Lick Tradition to have the 7th-grade parent’s assistance with:


Setting up and decorations for the ceremony starting at 4:30 p.m.


Donations of snacks, ( cookies, veggie platters, etc.)


Have the tables ready with snacks and drinks


Collecting the cap and gown after the ceremony.


*****Of course, we are always open to having 6th- grade parents come and assist with donations or volunteering.


We want to make sure that we can have our 8th-grade parents and guardians enjoy this important moment as they watch their students walk on stage as they graduate from James Lick Middle School.

If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Mr. Ortiz, the Family Liaison at 415-695-5675 or by E-mail at ortizo@sfusd.edu
