You are invited to take part in our community project to add permanent LED lighting at the El Camino High school stadium. This project aims to bring science education, field upgrades and energy efficiency to South San Francisco.

With the addition of these LED stadium lights, our student athletes will be able to compete in the evenings and experience the thrill of performing when their parents and other community members can attend.  

We are committed to ensuring that the questions and/or concerns of the community are addressed.

Alta Loma Middle School (ALMS) After School Program will Transition to the Boys & Girls Clubs of North San Mateo County


Two years ago at the request of community members and the SSFUSD Board of Trustees, the Boys & Girls Clubs of North San Mateo County (B&GC) established an after school program at Alta Loma Middle School (ALMS). This pilot project was designed to meet current needs at ALMS.  We are grateful for this opportunity, and for parent, Maria Vasquez in making this program happen.  


Over the course of the last two years, it has been a collaborative effort between SSFUSD and B&GC to find ways to financially sustain this program. Unfortunately, we are unable to continue the program as it currently exists. Therefore, the program will not remain onsite at ALMS effective this upcoming school year. As an alternative, the Boys and Girls Club Staff are prepared to serve our ALMS families through their Teen Program, based at the Orange Park Clubhouse located at 201 W. Orange Avenue.  Both the B&GC and SSFUSD firmly believe that ALMS students and parents have after school youth development programs as an option with which to participate. Both organizations remain committed to ensuring students have a place to attend for quality after school programs. Our commitment to serving the ALMS community has not changed. We are so excited and look forward to working together and providing the best possible out of school time programming for South San Francisco Unified School District middle schoolers at the Orange Park Clubhouse.


We are working through the details with B & G Club and SSFUSD is considering an option to provide financial assistance for transportation from ALMS to the Orange Park Clubhouse. We look forward to our continued partnership with B&G Club, students, and families.

SSFUSD Student Suspensions, Expulsions Show Marked Decrease

April 29, 2016

The South San Francisco Unified School District has embarked on a major effort to reduce student suspensions and expulsions and to codify new, progressive mechanisms leading to a fresh approach to District disciplinary policies and procedures.
According to District Director of Student Services Ryan Sebers, the emphasis  is on finding and maintaining creative ways to keep pupils engaged and involved in their academic pursuits.
In fact, he reported to the District Board of Trustees during its meeting of April 28, student suspensions and expulsions have already been cut by 65 percent and 50 percent respectively, compared to a decade ago.
With a concerted effort to implement pro-active solutions to issues such as truancy, the aim is to increase attendance through intervention techniques, better communication and a re-written and expanded District framework for dealing with student behavior.
The tentative framework, which has undergone a series of revisions, is expected to be examined again and, perhaps, approved at the Trustees‘ May 12 meeting.
Those wishing to comment on the particulars in the proposed handbook can do so by attending a meeting at 3:30 p.m. May 3 at the District Office, 398 B Street.
