Welcome, New Families!
Congratulations and welcome to Miraloma! We invite you to the incoming Kindergarten welcome events listed below. Please make sure to register at Miraloma in person and sign-up for school-wide communications (details below). We look forward to meeting you soon!
REGISTER YOUR CHILD AT MIRALOMA
All new families must register their student, in person, at Miraloma Elementary School during school hours (8am-3pm). Please follow the directions on the assignment letter that was mailed to you by the SFUSD or check the SFUSD website. If you do not register your student at school by the deadline mentioned in your letter, you may lose your student’s spot at Miraloma. Please note that Miraloma will be closed during Spring Break (March 25-March 29).
**NOTE: Sign-ups for School Communications (see below) do NOT substitute your registration at school.
School begins on Monday, August 19, 2019 at 7:50am. Students who do not attend within the first three days of school will be withdrawn. If you have enrolled but do not plan to attend, please notify the school or contact the Educational Placement Center.
All parents/guardians, please do the following:
IMPORTANT: SIGN UP for the Official Miraloma E-mail List
All official school and PTA communication is digital. This means welcome letters, class assignments, weekly newsletter (the Dragon Digest), principal's announcements, volunteer requests, etc., are sent to this email list. Don't miss out!
OPTIONAL: JOIN the "Class of 2025" Yahoo! Group and Facebook
While not an official source of school communications, these private groups are a great way to connect with other Kindergarten families, set up play dates, sports teams, grade-wide camping trips, etc. To join the incoming Kindergarten groups, please request to join the group on the Facebook page or click "+ Join" at the Yahoo! Group page.

In order to create 3 balanced, mainstream classrooms, build community, and to get to know all of our new students, kindergarten teacher assignments will be made at the end of the first week of school. Official classroom assignments will be sent via email as well as posted at the school at the end of the day on Friday, August 23rd. (Please make sure you are on the school email list.) Thank you for your support and understanding in this process.
AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS
There are two after school programs available. One on-site program through YMCA, and one off-site program in "Sandy Park" next to our school through SF Recreation & Parks. Registration info is available on our After School Programs page.
NOTE about school supplies: At Miraloma, we are very fortunate in that school supplies are provided for all children by the PTA, so you do not need to purchase supplies for your child specifically. #bestnewsever
Once school starts:
You will start receiving our weekly newsletter, the Dragon Digest. Please read it every week to stay in the know!
Please fill out the Multipurpose Family Income Form from the School District each year -- we're looking for 100% participation!
Check out the various volunteer opportunities - a great way to meet other parents is by preparing snack or help out during recess.
