Resources to help all families prepare for school:

  1. PTA Parent Guidebook: (COMING SOON!) Written by parents for parents! This guidebook will help you navigate your student’s first year at our school — but it’s just as useful for returning families. Check it out! Please note: this guidebook is relevant for a typical school year. Virtual learning and hybrid learning models may render components of this document irrelevant throughout a COVID-based environment.
  2. New Parent Mentor Program: Join this program if you want to be matched with a seasoned Barnard family who can guide you through your first few months at our school. Parents of incoming students in any grade are welcome to participate in this program. More information can be found here. Registration for the summer 2022 mentor program can be completed on the PTA contact form.  If you are a seasoned Barnard family that would like to register as a mentor family, sign up here (coming soon).
  3. District Nutrition/Cafeteria: Check out the cafeteria menu for this school year.
  4. Barnard School Calendar: Follow the school calendar to learn about upcoming events, holidays, and other important dates.
  5. SDUSD Academic Calendars: Find all district holidays and breaks for the academic year.

Sign up for school and PTA communications here:
