In addition, we have notified our parents at El Camino High School of the South San Francisco Police Department’s investigation and arrest, and made counselors available to El Camino High School students and have encouraged those students who would like to discuss the emotional impact the incident has had to take advantage of these services.
We also want to encourage all our parents and students who have any concerns or information regarding this case or any related suspicious activity to please contact the Criminal Investigations Bureau of the South San Francisco Police Department at 650-877-8910.
In the meantime, we will continue to work with parents, stakeholders and the South San Francisco Police Department to ensure that our students’ emotional and physical safety is maintained at all of our District’s campuses.

Mark Turner has been sentenced to 60 days in jail, 3 years of probation and will need to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life as a result of the ‘felony lewd act on a 15-year-old child by a person more than 10 years older’ charges filed against him to which he pleaded no contest. He will need to surrender himself to jail this September.
Prosecutors charge Turner had rubbed a 15 year old female student athlete’s thigh several times, kissing her on the check and asked if she thought of him as more than a coach after he drove her home from a basketball practice July 1, 2014. He reportedly told her not to tell anyone yet after she told friends it was reported to her parents who then called police.
