After observing traffic patterns with the current staggered start times, the Safety Team recommended changing the stagger.  Please note that supervision will continue to begin at 8:15 for all students.

Vaccinations
There are now many opportunities for your 16-18 year-olds to get vaccinated. This Saturday, May 1st anyone 16+ can come down to the Marin Center Vaccination POD (Bartolini Gallery, 10 Avenue of the Flags, San Rafael) to get a vaccination. Walk-ins are welcome (appointments are not necessary). Anyone under 18 will need a parent or guardian to accompany them. Thanks for helping to get the word out!  You can find more information about Marin County Vaccinations at https://coronavirus.marinhhs.org/vaccine
