The City of San Francisco instituted a 15 MPH speed limit on all streets within 500 feet of our school and is in effect when children are present. The reduced speed makes our streets safer especially for walking and biking to and from school for everyone. The San Francisco Police Department enforces this California Vehicle Code.
