The most important thing we can do for our children to succeed in life is to get them to school every day and on time. We know that achievement and student success are inextricably linked to attendance. The San Mateo-Foster City School District is committed to ongoing communication, support, and encouragement around the importance of showing up. 

Our team is committed to providing the support needed to ensure every student and their families feel welcomed and empowered for success. For questions regarding Student Support Services, please contact our office.

We are dedicated to creating an environment that supports every student to thrive and feel empowered to achieve daily at school.
