Welcome to the Yick Wo Community!

Please make sure to register in person at Yick Wo and to sign up for electronic school-wide communications at school, too.

Register Your Child at Yick Yo

All new families must register their student, in person, at Yick Wo Elementary School during school hours (9:30am - 3:30pm). 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 Yick Wo.  

The 2019-2020 school year will begin on August 19, 2019 at 9:30am. Students who do not attend within the first three days of school will be withdrawn from the school.  If you have enrolled but do not plan to attend, please notify the school or contact the SFUSD Educational Placement Center so that your spot can be offered to another student.

The first day of school for kindergarten students is a half day that ends at noon. One parent for each child is required to attend an introductory meeting during the morning.

School Hours

The Yick Wo campus opens at 9:00am, playground supervision begins at 9:10am on the Upper Yard, and school begins for all grades at 9:30am. Kindergarten dismissal is at 3:20pm, while dismissal for 1st - 5th grades is at 3:30pm. Please pick up your child on the front steps of the school at the appropriate time. For details about available Before and After School Care, click HERE.

What we ask of each Yick Wo parent: 

1. Volunteer in any way you can: in a classroom, on the yard at recess, in the library or front office... there are so many ways. Help every day, an hour a week, or just once a month. Every little bit helps!  You’ll meet new people, set an excellent example for your child, and have fun in the process. Visit our Volunteer page for additional ideas and to fill out a volunteer interest form or contact our PTO (pto.yickwo@gmail.com) to get involved!

2. Many of the programs that make Yick Wo so special depend upon the generosity of our community. We count on donations from all Yick Wo families to provide an enriched public school education for our children.  

3. We need your ideas and passion!  If you have a suggestion, please share it with a PTO Board Member and attend our monthly PTO meetings.  All PTO meetings have time dedicated to hearing new ideas and requests. Meetings are held monthly throughout the academic year, and are a valuable way to see how the parents, teachers, and administration work together to create community, fund-raise, and foster parent education.
