2023-24 Student and Family Handbook

Introduction from the Principal

Stronger Together / San Mateo High School
Dear Bearcat Families,

As the Principal of San Mateo High School, I want to welcome both new and returning students and their families to a new school year.  I am so looking forward to having our students and staff back on campus and in our classrooms.  While this school year might look and feel slightly different from the past, we will make this an amazing school year; we are stronger together!

I encourage all parents and guardians to get involved with one or more of our active parent organizations.  With your support we can continue to plan and organize wonderful school events, open to all.

To stay in the loop, please be sure we have your correct contact information, please sign up for our daily bulletin, check your email for posts, visit our website and network with other parents.

Thank you for being a part of the Bearcat community.  Feel free to contact me with any comments, questions or concerns: yshiu@smuhsd.org.  I look forward to working with you and helping your student reach their goals.

Peace, Passion, Pride,

Yvonne P. Shiu
SMHS Principal
