College of Marin and Sir Francis Drake Blvd. Construction Project Updates
Over the course of the demolition there will be large trucks coming in and out of the site via the driveway close to the crosswalk on College Avenue. We have noticed pedestrians not activating the flashing signals when using the crosswalk. Please remember to use this important safety feature as it is the only way vehicles exiting the driveway know that there are pedestrians in the crosswalk.
Marin Community Learning Hubs
Marin County community organizations are working together to provide Marin Community Learning Hubs during the 2020-2021 school year. Marin Community Learning Hubs are safe spaces with adult supervision for TK-8th grade students. Students will receive connection support for distance learning and access to WiFi during school hours.
This opportunity is offered for families for free who meet specific criteria. Eligible families include those that qualify for free or reduced lunch program, work with the Department of Child and Family Services (DCFS), foster youth children, students new to the country, or families unable to access or support distance learning.
