    While we are following the Air Quality Forecast, we will also be actively monitoring conditions in South San Francisco and all local areas of our schools. If conditions change, we will post an update and communicate with our schools to ensure our community remains informed.

    Martin ES Students Advocate for Ruby Bridges Day

    In Honor of Ruby Bridges

    At the request of students from Martin Elementary School, the San Mateo County Board of Education and Superintendent of Schools adopted a resolution creating Ruby Bridges Walk to School Day in San Mateo County, to be honored annually on November 14.

    Ruby Bridges became a symbol of the civil rights movement at age six, when she was the youngest of a group of African American students designated to integrate schools in the American South. On November 14, 1960, her first day of school at William Frantz Elementary School in New Orleans, Ruby was escorted to school by four federal marshals and spent the entire day in the principal’s office as irate parents marched into the school to remove their children.

    You can learn more about Ruby Bridges and the Walk to School Day initiative sponsored by San Mateo County Office of Education’s Safe Routes to School program via the following link:
