By Samantha Weigel
Construction is well underway atThe Nueva School, which will beopening the doors to its new cam-pus at Bay Meadows in September— becoming part of one of thelargest transportation-orienteddevelopments in the state. The private Hillsborough pre-kindergarten to eighth-gradeschool saw Bay Meadows in SanMateo as the perfect opportunityfor it to expand into a high schoolthat teaches and models sustain-ability, said Terry Lee, associatehead of school. “We really feel like we hit the jackpot both in terms of finding acity, San Mateo, that is so vision-ary in terms of this idea of transit-oriented development in such aprogressive part of the Bay Area… so there’s this really wonderfulalignment between the school, themaster developer [of BayMeadows] and the city of SanMateo,” Lee said.As part of Phase II for the oldrace track off of Highway 101 inSan Mateo, Nueva began construc-tion in early 2013 and its campusis compacted into just 2.7 acres,said Darcy Forsell, principal plan-ner with the city’s PlanningDivision.The campus has a relativelysmall footprint with its buildingstotaling just 135,000 square feetwith a 39,300-square-foot-below-ground-parking garage, Forsellsaid. Construction of the mainbuilding is currently ongoing butwill be ready by the time theschool year starts, Forsell said.

After 20 years, the San Mateo CountySheriff’s Office is still running its annualS.T.A.R. Camp, aimed at bringing underpriv-ileged youth outdoors while teaching themabout gang prevention, Internet safety andother issues.S.T.A.R. Camp was inspired by an IndianaState Police “Respect for Law” camp. The firstcamp was held in 1994 at the Boy ScoutCutter Scout Reservation. It hosted 60 fifth-graders from the unincorporated areas of SanMateo County, Woodside and East Palo Altoand only involved Drug Abuse ResistanceEducation, or D.A.R.E., students during itsfirst summer session. This summer, it hadalmost 150 campers.“Combining Boy Scout traditional campactivities with law enforcement topics andprograms, groups are led by deputy sheriffs toshow the children from our communities thatwe are people too,” said San Mateo Countysheriff’s Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt. “Wepresent a positive image so the children couldconnect with people in law enforcement andto know the person behind the badge.” Today, Sheriff’s Office personnel andcampers trek to YMCACamp Loma Mar for aweek-long camping trip. This trip providesthe children an opportunity to experience theoutdoors and enjoy a brief respite from thestress of inner city life with activities likeziplining and performing on stage. Programsin the camp include gang and drug awareness,Hug-A-Tree, the Explorer Program and cybersafety.Campers, ranging from fifth- to eighth-grade, come from a wide variety of socioeco-nomic backgrounds and are recruited from themiddle schools in the unincorporated areasand now the cities of San Carlos, Half MoonBay and Millbrae. Families pay a token feefor the camp. The camp is underwritten bydonations from individuals, companies andfoundations to the Sheriff’s Youth ProgramsFund as well as through proceeds of the NorthFair Oaks Community Festival.Initially, law enforcement explorers wereused as youth staff, but this has been expand-ed to former campers and other high schoolleaders. Sheriff’s Office staff get to be adultleaders, including Correctional OfficerPatrick Lucy, who is also a trustee on theSouth San Francisco Unified School Districtboard. He has been with the camp for about13 years.“You literally you end up making newfriends with these kids,” he said. “It’s a verymemorable experience. … They get to bethemselves.”Lucy keeps in touch with past campers, headded.
The camp occurs every summer. For moreinformation on S.T.A.R. Camp and otherSheriff’s Office community activities, go tosmcsheriff.com/communities-we-serve/com-munity-activities.
