We're Here to Help

We know you want your child in school every day.  But we also understand that sometimes things get in the way.  We want to be your partner in removing any barriers to regular attendance so your student can succeed.

Student Family School Resource Link

The first stop for support is Student Family School Resource Link, which gives you access to a full range of resources for families, including:

  • Student enrollment: Find the right school in your neighborhood including bilingual programs, after-school programs and enrichments
  • Special education: Educational and related developmental supports for children with disabilities. 
  • Technology: To ensure access to learning, all SFUSD students can receive a laptop in grades 4-12 and discounts for home internet connections.
  • Food & nutrition: Free meals for all students at school and referrals to neighborhood food banks for families. See what’s on the menu!
  • Physical & mental wellness: Speak to a school nurse or mental health professional about how we partner to support your child’s health at school.

You can connect with Family Link by sending an email to sflink@sfusd.edu, calling 415-340-1716, or completing the online form at familylink.sfusd.edu.


Sometimes the biggest barrier to attendance is simply getting to school in the morning. 

SFUSD Transportation Services helps provide safe and reliable transportation to and from school:

  • Curb-to-curb transportation for students with IEP's
  • General education busing with limited established routes

If transportation challenges are keeping your student from getting to school, contact the SFUSD Transportation team at 415-695-5505 or transportation@sfusd.edu. While we do have limited space for general education busing, the City of San Francisco allows all students and youth to ride free! See MUNI for more information.
