News

  • Newsletter Bear Facts

  • Calendar for 2016-2017 school year
  • Note Required for Doctor and Dentist Appointments 

  • Effective for the 2016/2017 school year, any time your child is absent from school for any kind of a doctor or dentist appointment, you must provide a note from the physician/dentist confirming that your child was at the appointment.  Regardless of whether your child is out all day or for a partial day, they must check in at the school office and provide the notification.  Thank you for your help and consideration!
  • Important Reminder for 2016-17 School Meal Applications

  • Students who were receiving free or reduced-price meal benefits at the end of last school year must fill out a NEW meal application for the 2016-17 school year. Students who have NOT submitted a NEW meal application, but qualified last school year, will be required to pay full price for school meals starting Thursday, September 29, 2016. Students who did not receive free/reduced-price meals last school year and apply this year, will need to pay for their meals until the meal application is processed.

    Again this year, students who are eligible for reduced-price meals will not be required to pay a copay for breakfast or lunch because the San Mateo-Foster City School District waives the copay.

    If you have questions regarding the free/reduced meal program, please call the Child Nutrition Services at 650-312-1968. To apply online for Free/Reduced-Price Meals: https://smfcsd.rocketscanapps.com
