Hello TL Families,
The PTA is pleased to announce that the Mariposa/TL School Directory is ready! If you provided an email address in InfoSnap and agreed to have your information shared in the Mariposa directory, your contact information is included.
Please note that the directory is for personal use only and should not be used for any form of solicitation. Our hope is that it makes it easier for you to connect with other families in our community. The directory will not be posted online so please save a copy for your records.
Special thanks to Mari Strahorn for putting the directory together.

The San Carlos School District unanimously approved a resolution in support of Prop 15 Schools and Communities First on the ballot in November. The District would receive an estimated $1,896,397 and the City of San Carlos $4,112,000 in additional funding if the initiative passes. According to the measure's sponsors, The California Schools & Local Communities Funding Act would raise an estimated $12 billion annually statewide for schools and local communities including $830 million for San Mateo County.
