Hoover Highlights



Register for SummerGATE 2017!

SummerGATE is returning to the Sunset this year! From mathematics and technology, to literature and choreography, children entering Grades K-8 embark upon many different educational adventures. Quality instructors from all over the Bay Area teach the classes.This summer's offerings feature a collaboration with the San Francisco Youth Chorus, with options for musically-themed classes and end-of-session performances. If you are interested in enrolling your child, go to our website at www sign up for the mailing list to receive information about the registration process.  



SFUSD encourages students to be in school every day, and we are committed to keeping them safe and fostering learning. We recognize that there are times when students and their families may choose to participate in activities such as demonstrations or strikes outside of school during the regular school day. While we respect and support our students' rights to express their views, please note that participation in a demonstration, walkout or strike will not be counted as an excused absence. ​


Spring Semester Parent Conference Week will be held from February 27th-March 3rd.  

School will be dismissed at 2:30 p.m. each day including Monday.  

All classes will start at 9:10 with NO EARLY MORNING PE.  


During this week, we want to provide different types of conferences depending on the needs of our students.


Options for communication with teachers during parent conference week:

  1. Conferences by Counselor Invitation: We want to take this opportunity to build positive relationships with parents/guardians of students who need support in school academically or socially. Counselors or Family Liaisons will be contacting families to schedule a conference with the teacher teams Monday through Thursday between 2:30 and 3:30.  

  • These conferences are for students who teachers have identified as having difficulty in two or more subjects. We wish to work with families to provide support to ensure their success.

  • Parents/guardians who are not able to attend may request a phone or in person conference with teachers at another time.

  1. Parents with individual concerns: If you do not receive a call from a counselor, and you have a concern, please contact your student’s teacher through School Loop or by calling Hoover at 415-759-2783.

  • Teachers will be scheduling individual conferences as needed either in person or by phone.

  1. Ongoing contact: Please continue communicating with teachers by School Loop email and/or phone if you need to check in on your student’s progress.

Conference Week School Schedule:  February 27th- March 3rd, Monday – Friday

School begins at 9:10 EACH day


School ends at 2:30 EACH day
