Forms and Handbook
As part of enrollment, Schoolhouse families are required to submit a variety of forms, some of which are optional given the circumstances of each family. We have collected links to all of these forms below for your convenience. At the beginning of the list, you will find the San Francisco Schoolhouse Family Handbook, which contains most of the information necessary for understanding how we come together as a community at the Schoolhouse.
