Letter to Editor: SSFUSD Must Address Continued Fights at El Camino High School – 5 Fights in ONE day!

South San Francisco, CA  April 25, 2023 by Concerned Parent/ EducatorA typewriter and a text beside it, “Letters to the Editor”

Dear Editor,

I am concerned about all the fights at El Camino High School.

 

There were 5 fights in one day last week. One girl was sent to the hospital for having her head being slammed into a locker. A few weeks ago in the boys bathroom was a very disturbing fight. The boy was in a choke hold and turned purple.  All these fights are caught on cell phones and posted on social media.  This is absolutely unacceptable.  My children attend this school and i am afraid everyday for their safety.

 

Why isn’t the District doing anything about this? Why isn’t Ryan Sebers doing anything about this? He transferred these bad students from South San Francisco High School to El Camino  high school because they were fighting. Why would he do that? Now El Camino High School  is getting worse everyday. This is unacceptable.

 

SSFUSD has always said that safety is their number one priority. At this point in time, I don’t believe they are working on this issue. Until something more severe happens,  is that when SSFUSD will step up?

 

Now is the time to step up and take accountability for your actions and realize all these students need your assistance immediately.

 

Thank you.

Earlier we reported on a vicious fight at El Camino High School in the boys bathroom {HERE, } which included a letter from a parent and the response from the SSFUSD  We received many messages and emails regarding this incident, including the video that was made and edited with music and shared on social media. Parents wanted to know why the school was allowing this to happen and why the police were not involved.

When this was shared on our social media we had another mother sharing her experience with her son in Kindergarten, who a few years back, was also involved in a fight. This brought about many from our community offering info, including faculty.

My son was beat up at Spruce Elementary on his first day of kindergarten. When I picked him up he was being escorted to the office because his school clothes were torn and he was a bit scraped up. The principal told me it was due to lack of supervision in the kindergarten yard area. No parents were talked to and his teacher gave no regard to what had happened to my son while under her supervision. My son continued to go to school here for the next 3 weeks with no changes. He was bullied until I pulled him out.

 

###

It is unacceptable to know our youth may not be safe while attending our local schools and we know more has to be done to ensure their safety.

This also includes what we teach our kids at home, this is where it starts at early ages.

This short video shows a very important interaction with a parent and her 4-year-old, teaching how to handle our emotions.

If our kids don’t learn how to manage their emotions early on, they are more easily subjected to acting out in negative behavior.

Please watch it.

Share it!

It is also a great reminder for us adults as well.

This is so sad. I have a daughter who attends El Camino and is not motivated to go to school with her grades falling behind. I am at my wits end in figuring out what to do with this. I am an educator too. I tried reaching out to the counselors and it seems to be falling off deaf ears. I’m still hopeful though.

It’s definitely challenging now with the children nowadays especially with teenagers but we can’t give up.

This is getting 100 percent out of hand. I know first hand. I have a family member who is a teacher there and the students are starting fights in the boys bathroom. They don’t even know who the students are. They are not in their class and have never even had a dialogue or dispute. It’s pretty bad when you can’t go to the restroom.about worrying about getting harassed. In addition there is fresh feces on the wall in the bathroom from somebody decorating the bathroom walls.
The school district needs to step it up and not sit on their hands and do Nothing. The current solution is for the teacher to write a report and forward it to the office. These circumstances only get worst with no action taken.

I am a parent of a former and a current child at South SF district. I would say (IMO) there has been challenges happening at the schools. Across the USA really. After reading this I can understand the concerned parent. But the information parents are sharing: “Why isn’t Ryan Sebers doing anything about this? He transferred these bad students from South San Francisco High School to El Camino  high school because they were fighting”….. makes me think how much of that is true. Or “Now is the time to step up and take accountability for your actions and realize all these students need your assistance immediately”…. In another everythingsouthcity post, it shared a response from Ryan Sebers, “We take conflict situations seriously, investigate them thoroughly, and hold participants and contributors accountable for their actions”. These letters from concerned parents talk about protecting children and yet, they make judgements by calling them “BAD” because they’re from South SF high school. Community members reading this (if they take it literal) will think… ohhhhh if the student attends South SF high school, they’re a “BAD” student. Just like how I hear my neighbors talk about Baden children. That if you go to Baden you’re BAD. Parents should be concerned for the health and safety of our children, but to say you want to help our children, and make judgements at the same time doesn’t sound sincere. We do not know what backgrounds these children come from. Maybe some a fostered, don’t have fathers or mothers, experienced trauma, and so on.

I have been following everythingsouthcity for many years, but now it seems like it’s becoming a platform that fosters gossip and ill will.

Posting this in regards to a week old article that was posted on Everything South City, but related to this. It caught my attention personally because of the poor, and irresponsible journalism that seemed to be combining 2 separate incidents at ECHS. The editor addressed one fight, while an anonymous letter posted in the article, was referencing another.
I can’t help but think the letter posted seems to have had a personal agenda behind it and was a little exaggerated and filled with misinformation. I have seen both of the videos, regarding these 2 separate incidents, and as an adult who is a critical thinker and does not jump to conclusions, the video in regards to the latter incident (the choking incident in the boys restroom at ECHS) does not show the whole fight, and only tells one side of the story. That is how it has been taken out of context and people are jumping to conclusions. I am a resident of South City and have kids that have attended 3 of the schools in this district. I would like the community to be aware that there are TWO versions of the story, which the widely circulated video does not tell. Also, I’m not sure if the community is aware that the “bully” in the video was defending himself after being struck first. Self defense and martial arts teaches their students to only use it when necessary, and to never be an aggressor. Also any adults sharing the video (as stated in the anonymous letter) are acting irresponsibly by contributing to gossip and social media bullying of BOTH boys. As parents, We are supposed to be leading by example, but some of us have decided to act like children. Also there are other videos of other fights from this school year, where staff are present and there is no intervention! How can we expect our kids to intervene, as expressed by Mr. Sebers in his response, when their leaders cannot do the same?

I am not condoning that any of the actions by either one of these boys are appropriate, however, I hope these boys have been disciplined and are facing due process. The ongoing gossip and fear mongering does not help anyone, and just makes things worse for the kids involved.

These Kids have a right to education, counseling, mediation and due process. SSFUSD needs to do everything in their power to ensure these kids have these resources readily available to them, and other kids involved in similar situations in the future, to help them overcome adversity and become responsible and compassionate adults in the future.

@ED, you mention “While some issues might be mental health, a lot appears to do with no accountability of wrong doings. ‘No’ no longer means ‘No’, it’s regarded as merely a challenge.”

No disrespect, but as you also mentioned in another comment response, May is mental health awareness month. I would suggest you do some research and look at the data surrounding student mental illness. How do you know if there was no accountability of wrong doings? I am a teacher and aware of students being suspended. We are not entitled to know every single detail of their disciplinary action. But what we can do is become better humans to help them such, as implementing meditation like you also mentioned.

Let’s stop assuming from what things appear to look like. “Objects in mirror MAY BE closer than they appear”.

All these adults…all up in the Kool-Aid and don’t know the flavor! Some of you are worst than kids with the endless gossip, social media and text message sharing of school fight videos. No wonder our kids act so entitled. SMH Use your critical thinking skills.

PS – Critical thinking involves not jumping to conclusions and understanding the differences between facts, assumptions and opinions. Be objective. Use the critical thinking process and realize you are not privileged nor entitled to all information especially when it comes to children. And shame on you everythingsouthcity for contributing to online gossip and bullying!

The first thing to understand about our world is that there is a mental health crisis going on. Ask your fellow mental health care provider about this if you don’t already know. The availability of therapists and counselors is at an all time low, especially for low income families with limited resources in our community.

This affects not only the kids but adults as well. This is evident by the type of incidents we are regularly seeing in the media and the streets. These fights are not only occurring in South City. Look at the local news and you will see the recent violence affecting schools from SF to South City (stabbing at Francisco Middle School SF; numberous kids brawling at Stonestown; fight at Riordan basketball game, just to name a few).

So my non-professional but very concerned suggestion, ask the counties and school boards for more funding and focus on mental health and counselors. Demand it as voters.

Also, as parents, encourage and demand your children to actively partipate in conflict mediation. These are skills that will carryover into adulthood. I am personally aware of bullies/instigators/participants in recent fights who absolutely refused to participate in peer mediation while the opposite party was all for it.

They say it all starts at home and this is one area where we can all improve signficantly as a community. Elimate the mental health stigma. Don’t be “too cool for school” and let’s really talk about it.

With all due respect, while there are mental health issues, the primary problem is lack of discipline and structure within the home and at the schools. Kids have no accountability and are passed with “social promotion” with straight F and D grades from middle school. If you spent one day at one of these schools you would see. I work at one of the schools and I see it first hand every day. Kids on the phone all day, late to school, late to class, disrespect, smoking pot all day etc etc…. Progressive lenient policies at work….We have enough counselors, we need more DISCIPLINE and ACCOUNTABILITY. I could go on all day with examples…

In my experience (4 kids in SSF schools) Admin and most teachers are useless. They care more about themselves and just the money they can make than the students. They do not advocate for the students rather they take the easy route and put as little effort into actual teaching as possible. I’ve had my kids tell me a particular teacher is bad doesn’t make class interesting making it hard to learn. I’ve also seen first hand teachers scamming the system in order to make more money for doing nothing. I had the opportunity to meet and bring the facts to our old superintendent (Hogan) he admitted this fact and still did nothing. In fact there was money spent on investigating the cronyism and scamming for money which I was asked to speak to an investigator and when I asked for a copy of the report I was told by two board members there was no report! I still have my emails to the investigator as proof. Just another things swept under the table, which proves how bad they actually are.

Hello Ghost,
I am a fellow teacher myself. In response to your comment, I would disagree the PRIMARY reason is the lack of discipline and structure within the home and schools. I am not dismissing it as a reason per se. I believe there are many factors which include mental health as mentioned by Mr. Fong (and it’s figuring out what is causing those mental issues that’s important). In 2021, US Surgeon described student mental health a national crisis. However, there is no qualitative nor quantitative data (to my knowledge) that suggests lack of discipline as a “primary” reason. If you have the data to prove this please share.

The students are being disciplined according to Director Sebers. He wrote, “participants and contributors are held accountable for their actions…”. As a reminder, we are not entitled to know the details or to what degree for confidentiality reasons (and they’re minors). But for kicks, let’s say what you suggest (lack of discipline and accountability) is the primary reason. So because of this, the district puts more severe disciplinary action in place and guardians do the same at home (if guardians are even around), does that solve the issue?? Maybe? Lets say for a week. OK. How about a month? Sure! And then another incident happens, then another, and so on. You think that truly solved it now? No. It was only a temporary solution. Just like how fights still happen inside juvenile centers or prisons after an individual is sent there for “disciplinary action”. It’s deeper than just holding kids accountable at schools and homes. When I attended high school as a student (over 20 years ago) and for as long as I’ve been teaching, fights have been happening on campuses across America. This isn’t anything new. The difference is nowadays, kids have phones and are quick to hit the red record button.

I have had discussions with fellow colleagues about some possible solutions and recommendations with one being that the district put more focus on student’s mental health. Not just with funding, BUT strategize on developing a framework on how those funds will be used. Some examples would be: Expand the Social Emotional Learning program at all schools, provide digital media literacy education, mandatory conflict resolution/ mediation between students (and sometimes staff) with an EXPERT who specializes in that field. Build in some mandatory mindfulness breaks ( QUIET time) where the entire campus participates. This has been a success at SF’s Visitation Valley middle school when it was first introduced back in 2007 resulting in higher attendance and lower suspension rates. I also believe we need more experienced counselors (academic and wellness) and better professional trainings for the ones at schools today.

Something else to consider, is students come to school and sit in block scheduled classes absorbing one subject after another. Often times, a student’s attention span is low (at least my students) to sit and absorb the information we teach for that long. These schedules don’t allow enough time for rest, relaxation, meditation/mindfulness, etc.. they’re put under pressure at school and probably at home. They might be facing issues related to poverty (homelessness) or lack of money for safe, stable housing and worry how they’ll receive nutritious food. They may be foster children, have parents who are a single mom/dad or going through a divorce, and maybe have a learning disability that was never diagnosed.

Just like you, I can go on an on. I do not have the best recipe for a solution. But there are many ingredients causing mental issues with the human population. What I hope is that school leaders (including the superintendent) actually start peeling the layers and dissecting to understand what students are struggling with. Put more emphasis to let students know it’s OK if they need counseling support or to ask for help. It doesn’t mean they’re weak or “crazy”, but removes the stigma built around mental illness. We should be building a relationship so students feel safe coming to school to help them learn and heal. I’d even argue going further for some of us adults and seek counseling for our life challenges or trauma we’ve suffered. How can we help others if we aren’t helping ourselves.

Some key facts according to the World Health Organization (WHO):

1. Globally, one in seven 10-19-year-olds experiences a mental disorder, accounting for 13% of the global burden of disease in this age group.

2.Depression, anxiety and behavioural disorders are among the leading causes of illness and disability among adolescents.

3. Suicide is the fourth leading cause of death among 15-29 year-olds.

The consequences of failing to address adolescent mental health conditions extend to adulthood, impairing both physical and mental health and limiting opportunities to lead fulfilling lives as adults.

Teacher. This is a conversation that will not and cannot be solved on a website forum. Bottom line is statistics can and are manipulated to fit the agenda. Mental health is a problem yes, but drop the stats and look around and it’s obvious that discipline and accountability are non exisitant. Also there is a cultural aspect that plays into this, and that is being ignored. As far as what is happening at El Camino, their administration has created this problem. They have went your route and how’s that working out for them? Take the blinders off, there is a solution but people are not willing to drop their agenda and egos to solve the issues….its politics as usual, to the detriment of our youth.

Ghost, Agreed! This is a conversation that will not be solved on a website. Disagree with your belief of “dropping” the stats (data). You cannot just go off of “feelings”. Imagine when a student takes a test, and he/she selects choice A as the correct answer because it “felt” right. Please share more on the cultural aspect being ignored you speak of? Agreed, El Camino and their administration can do better, but what route of “mines” has El Camino done which is not working? In fact, the whole district can do better. What IS the solution (or feeling) you speak of that people are not doing because they are not willing to drop their agenda/ego?

How about having shop classes like Auto Shop, Wood Shop Metal Shop, Cooking, Sewing and so on? To think every student is going to be a scientist or pencil pusher is incredibly ignorant, and that seems the way our district is going. There are plenty of great jobs in the trades out there yet our schools are putting out kids who can’t even use a screwdriver. Our educators and administrators are failing our children.

The teachers have enough on their plate. It would be a better environment if the school District takes these inquiries seriously. For every complaint you get you need to go out to the school, interview the parties to determine the proper outcome and not turn the other cheek. There is a big difference between an isolated incident and one that keeps happening. Take action

Ray, I was one of these kids growing up, you name it I lived it. You know what turned me around? Discipline, accountability, staying busy ie; sports and structure. Having poor parenting is one thing, but continuing that and tolerating that at school is another. We have accomplished good things for the most part at the school I work in…you know how? We have adults that create relationships with kids, help kids ie; counseling etc., BUT we don’t tolerate their bs. We draw a line and give real consequences for bad behavior. It’s really that simple. Are things perfect? No, but we are on top of it and have seen the results despite policies that create and encourage bad behavior and apathy in the first place. Kids have remained pretty much the same over the years it’s the adults and their do gooder policies that have made these behaviors worse…especially with kids of color. What alot of these kids need is for adults to give a damn and to hold them to higher standards not coddling them so the adults can pat themselves on the back so they can feel good about “saving” them. The world doesn’t work like that. Something else that blows my mind is the phones…why are they tolerated at school? Something to ask the board…that is a HUGE problem.

Ghost, where’s your plan? I see you pointed out the problems but nowhere in your response did you provide solutions and an action plan to put in place. Furthermore, your experience is anecdotal which is a logical fallacy. What does that prove to this dialogue? You mentioned you were one of those kids. If so, do you know the significance of my username especially since El Co is one of the schools being discussed? Brother, I’m one of those kids as well.

Ray, you want a plan? How bout 1) taking away the phones at school and enforcing non compliance 2) Use progressive discipline up to and including suspension when deserved 3) Mandatory parent attendance for problem solving when their child is out of control or if parent refuses then their kid does not return to school. 4) provide alternative schools for consistent negative behavioral kids that ruin the environment for the kids and staff that WANT a safe and healthy learning environment. 5) create relationships with kids to foster a healthy environment for everyone 6) provide counseling/academic services (especially spanish services) as needed and make them mandatory. Majority off kids will understand boundaries but we as adults have to set them with love, understanding and yes discipline. That’s just a start, but you have to know going in that you can’t save EVERYONE but you can create a positive, structured environment for the majority of students. We are not victims, we survive, adapt and move forward, if not you sink. If you came from where the place and living experience I did you would know this. Just know that the district says they enforce rules but they really don’t, it’s all about politics and covering their collectives butts, kind of like the real world. Next time you’re at a board meeting, ask them what happens if I kid and sometimes parents refuse to follow the phone policy….if they are HONEST they will tell you they don’t have a clue. Get the picture? I see it everyday my friend. Tough situations require tough decisions not politically correct ones.

Ray you want a plan? ok so how bout we start making sure the district is enforcing their rules? No phones period. Accountability from parents that don’t want to be part of the solution? Enforcing the current progressive discipline to include more suspensions if deemed necessary. Why do we have to keep making more plans if we can’t even enforce something like progressive discipline? If you happen to attend a board meeting in the future, ask them what the protocol is if I kid decided to not give up his/her phone and a parent agrees? If they are HONEST they would tell you that they don’t have a clue. I was anecdotal because we have systems in place to fix the problem but there is no political will to be successful. As I stated before, instead of asking for more plans, look at the behavior and culture FIRST. It can be done and it works but you have to have the right people with balance of resources/discipline to change the culture. I will say it again…kids need love, understanding, discipline, accountability and structure. Parents need to be part of that solution as well or we keep going back to square one. Not all kids are going to be “saved”. More alternative schools anyone? We are basically sacrificing the overall well being of schools to be politically correct? That has always been the problem. No offense but judging by what you say, you’re definitely not hood so I wouldn’t expect you to understand the mentality and how to fix it. If I’m wrong then educate me.

Ghost, My action plan was provided at the top of this comment thread long before you chimed in, sir. Appreciate your response. I don’t disagree with most you are saying. I believe many of it is already in place. In fact, I look at the behavior and culture everyday because I’m a parent, uncle, and Godfather of several kids in this district and beyond. Furthermore I’m personally familiar with one of the fights being discussed and I promise you the parents of at least one opponent are accountable to all the basics you mention: discipline, love, understanding, structure, etc. You mention removing phones from school? Maybe you’re not a parent yourself, but that’s not happening in 2023. Even the military doesn’t take away phones in boot camp. Also, consider school active shooters. LOL No one is taking my kids phones. Lastly, I’m definitely not hood? Real talk, You’re right to judge that based off my articulate writing and vocabulary. I still have friends n’ fam in the hood but I’m one of those kids who evolved and became a real life chameleon. I left the hood way back in the 90s where it belongs. I hope these new “hood” kids follow suit.

PS- All this rant isn’t for you, Ghost. It’s for people who lurk in comments and I’m planting positive seeds for em. Peace.

Ray I appreciate the dialog and I understand your point of view regarding services for the kids especially regarding mental health. You ever consider that the phone is contributing greatly to the mental health problems? Studies have consistently shown that heavy phone use contribute to negative/delayed cognitive and social issues not to mention cyberbulling, starting drama and recording fights as a result, curriculum retention and a direct correlation to low test scores. It is a huge mistake to allow phones at school (they already get chrome books) and to say it is because of school shootings is a red herring argument. Look up the SSF high school and state test scores overall, english and math are horrible especially among black/latino students and phones are a big part of that. Kids need to be pushed academically, not made into victims and to have that phone as a distraction. Why do you think they have social promotion and students can pass with a D grade? To cover their failures of course. I don’t think we’re that far off otherwise as I agree to many of your points as well. I have raised children too and worked in the people field for 35 years and we are going downhill fast. Also, in saying you’re not hood had nothing to do with how you speak but that you don’t see that kids have that wanna be hood mentality (keep it real…south city kids are not real hood) but they have that mentality and we need to make them understand that that mentality won’t go far in the real world. I also left that hood world a long time ago and made a better life for myself and my family but will never forget where I came from and the people that are still there. I will always keep it 💯 with them instead of being PC. Unfortunately, the system is designed for them to fail and we need to be honest about that. I appreciate that we can have an honest discussion and that you give a damn but the reality is far from what a lot of people think it is. Be safe brother.

the problem is our district and School Board are inept. They don’t listen they don’t act on anything. We have administrators AND teachers looking the other way, this has been going on for years. Nobody advocated for the kids, AT ALL. I know for a fact when my kids went to El Camino the cronyism within staff and admin was over the top, so much so that the only person you could trust (1 Vice principal) quit and now is at another district. While at El Camino you still have as far as teachers the same thing still going on. It’s also clear nobody in the district or on the board gives a damn about much other than their title. When can we talk about the Baseball field being unusable? Or the reason why? I personally brought the field to the attention of Board members years ago, only to be told the field was “GREAT” yeah tell that to the kid who was taken to the hospital a few weeks ago with knocked out teeth and needing stitches. It’s a damn shame.

There is no police at this school
I have had several conversation with the principal and the super in regards to these fights.
The principal tries to pretend this is not happening and had the nerve to tell us during a pta meeting not to believe what we are seeing.
I would be happy to have a conversation and share my emails with someone that is capable of making a difference.

You are right! I have a very good friend who is a teacher and has been approached several times in the restroom by a couple of students. There is no way the Principal can pretend it did not happen at the PTA meeting. Are you accusing the teacher of lying?? Why is there either no monitor or security guard monitoring the restrooms. He is only interested in protecting his bacon. Part of your responsibility as an administrator is to protect your staff. The teachers are there to teach, not to have to worry about their safety and its an insult for the school district not to stand and protect the teachers. You are basically allowing the teachers head to be put on a stick and not be protected.The police can not get involved as it is not their jurisdiction. Stop pussy footing around and do the right thing as more and more teachers will be quitting due to an unsafe and toxic environment.The teachers are not child psychologists, counselors, parents, caretakers, policeman.

As a former via west junior camp counselor for a non profit in the special needs department and culinary arts class assistant instructor this is not ok, I attended the school board meeting from home and this literally breaks my heart 😢. Kids need lessons on treating each other with respect I may be a cool aunt to a nephew at el camino a football player there but as a former employee working with special needs born with autism this is not acceptable and there was a feature on nbc bay area where Janelle Wang now works as news anchor. I knew her as talk show host with Spencer Christian on ABC7 bay area and I did attended a live taping with my mom and a former co worker never will forget. I spoke with Amanda on the schoolboard about the important issues and she said things like these take time. I will be taking a 3 week class on how to start 3 at home food based small business with her and her enterputership crew at her non profit on grand to get my spice company going so I feel you guys kids need to behave in both social media and in real life too! All about balance
