Emerson is a Sanctuary School

On the first day of school, all teachers and staff greeted our students wearing Sanctuary School t-shirts designed to support OUSD's English Language Learners program. KTVU heard about this and featured Emerson on their website. "So much has happened over the summer, in the world, in terms of family separation at the border, and the tragic stabbing of Nia Wilson on BART," Principal Palin said. "I want all of our schools to be sanctuary places for kids and families of all ethnicities and backgrounds."
