I'm moving with my family (husband, two girls aged 7 and 5) from the UK to San Francisco in late October. We will be needing to find a home and a school for the girls and I've been looking at the various elementary schools available. Since we're arriving mid-year I assume that I need to find out which schools have openings for one in Grade 2 (she was 7 in August) and the other in Kindergarten (she'll be 5 in October). Do I approach the schools direct or do I go through the school board? I'm keen to find out about the schools first as it will heavily influence where we choose to live, though I do realize they probably can't guarantee anything until we have an address. Any advice gratefully received!

Let's help this family out with some suggestions
I received this email from a family moving to San Francisco from the UK. She'd like to receive some tips on best neighborhoods for families as well as suggestions for schools.
