Support & Student Services
The following provide support services for parents and their students:
Child and Adolescent Hot line and Prevention Program
This is a free resource available to San Mateo County residents. It is called Child and Adolescent Hotline and Prevention Program and is available 24/7 to support community members. They can be reached at (650) 567-5437, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parent Education Programs are held at the school site during the school year. These programs are designed to meet the current parents’ or guardians’ needs for keeping up to date with positive interventions that they can utilize with their students to promote healthy family interactions. Opportunities include evening meetings organized through our Parent Involvement Project.
Parent Involvement Project: This unique and highly successful project addresses the achievement gap by uniting community, parents and schools. The Parent Involvement Project’s innovative approach provides high quality learning experiences to enable parents to have a more positive and supportive impact on their students development. Some of the resources available through PIP are Parent Education Workshops, help with Classroom Participation, Home Visits, and Enrichment Activities. We are fortunate to be home to a PIP Preschool on campus!
