San Francisco Unified School District officials are working closely with the Department of Emergency Management and the Department of Public Health to monitor the air quality situation in San Francisco. At this time, we continue to advise schools to conduct indoor activities during the school day. Schools will be open Friday, Oct. 13. If San Francisco's air quality is downgraded further, we will consult with Department of Public Health and provide families and staff with an update.

三藩市聯合校區正在與緊急事故應變管理部和公共衛生部密切合作,監測三藩市的空氣質量。目前,我們繼續建議學校在上課期間進行室內活動。 學校將在10月13日星期五正常開放。 如果三藩市的空氣質量進一步下降,我們將向公共衛生部諮詢,並對家庭和員工提供新指引。

Los funcionarios del Distrito Escolar Unificado de San Francisco están trabajando estrechamente con el Departamento de Manejo de Emergencias y el Departamento de Salud Pública para vigilar la calidad del aire en San Francisco. En este momento, seguimos recomendando a las escuelas que realicen las actividades dentro del plantel durante el día escolar. Las escuelas estarán abiertas el viernes 13 de octubre. Si la calidad del aire de San Francisco disminuye aún más, consultaremos con el Departamento de Salud Pública, con el fin de proporcionar a las familias y al personal una actualización sobre la situación.



San Francisco has very poor air quality today due to the fires in the North Bay. SFUSD advised all school sites ​to keep students indoors during recess​, physical education​ and lunc​h​​. All outdoor sports activities ​and outdoor learning ​activities should ​also ​​​be ​moved indoors today.  


These guidelines are to remain in place until the San Francisco Department of Public Health deems the air quality has improved, and it is safe for children to do activities outdoors. We will continue to update principals regarding any changes to this directive. 




En estos momentos la ciudad de San Francisco tiene muy mala calidad del aire debido a los incendios en el norte de la Bahía de San Francisco. El Distrito Escolar Unificado de San Francisco (SFUSD) ha aconsejado a todas las escuelas que mantengan a los alumnos en el interior de sus inmuebles durante el recreo, la clase de educación física y el almuerzo. Todos los deportes y actividades docentes al aire libre deben también realizarse en el interior de las escuelas.


Estas directrices deberán respetarse hasta que el Departamento de Salud Pública de San Francisco considere que la calidad del aire ha mejorado y es seguro para los alumnos realizar actividades al aire libre. El SFUSD continuará informando a los directores de las escuelas sobre cualquier cambio de última hora.

Free Lunch for all Students by Community Eligibility Provision

Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) is a federal provision that allows eligible schools to offer free meals to attending students regardless of individual income.  CEP eliminates the burden of collecting household applications to determine eligibility for school meals, relying instead on information from other means-tested programs.

Welcome to Dr. Martin Luther King, jr. Academic Middle School, 2016-2017!!!!

August 3, 2016


Greetings Families and Students,


We would like to welcome the returning 7th and 8th grade students and the incoming 6th graders to Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Academic Middle School’s 2016-2017 school year.  I hope everyone had a restful and fun summer.


Many changes were implemented last year to make MLK Middle School student-centered, family friendly, and accessible to the community at large. Those changes had a tremendous impact on the overall academic performance of students, increased transparency between the administration and families, and engaging multiple community stakeholders in the learning community at MLK Middle School. This year promises to bring more excitement as we build upon the successes from last year.


We look forward to growing the capacity of MLK Middle School and becoming the premier middle school in the district. Our efforts begin with parent involvement and participation in shaping the future of your children. We anticipate you joining our PTA, attending bi-monthly Coffee Chats (every 1st and 3rd Fridays at 8:45-9:45am) between administrators and parents, volunteering in classes and on field trips, and adding your voice to the overall MLK Middle School community.


We will see your child on Monday, August 15, 2016. Breakfast for students will be available at 8am. Homeroom begins at 8:30 sharp.


For 6th grade families, orientation is Monday, August 15, 8:30 - 10:00am. Families will meet the 6th grade teachers, staff and learn more about MLK and the resources we offer.


The bell schedule is attached. Please note we will be releasing students early every 3rd Friday at 1pm. Our Beacon Extended Learning Program will be open at 1pm for 3rd Fridays.
