Dear Parents, We have just received confirmation that all Marin County schools will be closed tomorrow, Friday, November 16th  due to the air quality at this time. All City of San Rafael Child Care Centers will also be closed tomorrow. The decision to close our centers is not one we make lightly, and we recognize the challenges these closures create for our families. We anticipate returning to our regular schedule next week. We will be in communication with the District and County staff,  and we will update you as information becomes available.

Filming in San Rafael

Our city is a Film Friendly Community.  We have many unique locations to choose from including our downtown area, where American Grafitti was filmed in 1973 with Ron Howard and Richard Dreyfuss and the San Rafael Civic Center where Gattaca was filmed in 1997 with Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman.

The Paramount/Netflix film production ’13 Reasons Why’ used San Rafael as the home base of this streaming series about teen bullying. Several neighborhoods, including Gerstle Park, Peacock Gap, Bret Harte, West End, and Downtown, are featured throughout the series.  It's fun to identify the many San Rafael locations in the series.
