Student-Led Protest on Tuesday, November 15th

Illustration of Students ProtestingSome students from San Mateo, Hillsdale and Aragon high schools have organized a student-led protest, facilitated solely by students.

Students from the three schools have indicated that they will be walking out of their classes at 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday, November 15th to gather peacefully at Central Park in Downtown San Mateo to express their views regarding the presidential election. District staff will not prevent students from participating in any protest. However, teachers will indicate an unexcused absence in the student information system for students not in class. The City of San Mateo Police Department will have officers assigned to each school to monitor the students’ safety throughout the protest and to ensure no violations are committed. Instructional time will continue for those students who do not participate in the protest. We are asking parents and families to help us by communicating with your student so that you are aware of your student's intentions for Tuesday.
