TLM PTA Membership Support Team Kid!
Thanks to the support of our generous Mariposa and Tierra Linda families the PTA has reached their Team Kid fundraising goal! We are so grateful for our incredible school community.
Your donations make a huge difference and help bridge the gap between the needs of our school and inadequate state funding. Even better, by joining our Team Kid campaign you became PTA members and joined with over 800,000 Californians to support the importance of PTA, including advocacy at the national, state and local level for better education funding.
You can still support the PTA and purchase your PTA membership here

Covid19 Testing Available for Children
Fight the Flu - Get Your Shot Today!
The flu shot is a safe, effective way to reduce your chance of missing work or ending up in the hospital due to severe flu. Symptoms of the flu can be similar to early symptoms of COVID-19, meaning that this year, people with flu symptoms may require a COVID-19 test and may need to stay home and isolate away from their families while awaiting results.
You can get flu shots at:
- Your doctor’s office
- Retail pharmacies and stores (call first to check vaccine availability)
- Visiting: https://vaccinefinder.org/
- A free flu clinic in San Mateo County:
Join us at Smarte
Programs run from 8:15 am (early drop off for Zooms!) to 4:30 pm each day. You can choose from 5-day, 3-day or 2-day programs. The SMARTE Clubhouse provides a fun, safe and welcoming place to spend time in a supervised childcare environment to support online learning along with engaging enrichment activities. Students are in small cohorts with two staff members and no more than 12-15 children. We practice strict safety protocols - wearing masks, no mixing of groups, as well as daily health checks and sanitizing/cleaning routine. Students spend the morning Distance Learning in their own dedicated space. Staff are there to assist students in accessing their Zooms and helping them complete their work each day. In the afternoon, students move into enrichment time with music, games, drawing, arts & crafts, lots of outside playtime and tons of fun!
Please visit the SMARTE Clubhouse website for more detailed information. If you have additional questions, please email us at email@example.com. Scholarships are available for families in need and we offer both an SCSD Employee and sibling discounts. Click on the SMARTE Clubhouse Registration link to sign-up today!
