was all together for the first and likely final time this year. 18 years from phillip and sala burton academic high school in san francisco were together again, finally, not on campus, but it keys are stadium where they received their high school diplomas after enduring a senior year spent largely at home, secluded from classmates because of covid. i'm glad to actually be walking stays in person, rather than on the camera in class. like i would say yes, i'm gonna graduate in a couple of years, i would always be like a big day is coming up. it's coming up, but now that it's here, it's like really exciting. these are among the approximately 4000 seniors graduating from san francisco public high schools this week happy for students and that after at least at the very end, they could come together one last time and be able to celebrate. be able to gradua significant in all this last year's graduatione this. those took place online.
it wasn't until recently that san francisco public health officials gave the okay for outdoor ceremonies, but students have to sit at least six ft apart. no student can have more than four guests who must sit in pods and the venues are all disinfected between ceremonies before burdens. graduation tuesday, lowell high school had its ceremony. very happy, then. ah venmo wild ride, especially this year, especially this year because some high schools only allowed seniors to attend classes in person for just 3 to 5 days over a two week period on lee about 15. percent of students actually came in. but on this graduation day, parents seemed happy and relieved and never definitely pluses and minuses to this whole past 15 months, but i'm so glad that she made it to this day, some students say for all the disappointments over the year, they did learn to persevere. we've been mentally tougher because we have to push ourselves a lot more. we really learned the power of communication. i think with this class since and it's t
certain the class of 2022 won't have to go through all this. the school district announced full in person learning beginning this fall. jenna rob roth from san francisco. that's wonderful to see those students and their families enjoying the work after a really tough year. thanks so much. well, the pandemic has no doubt been difficult for so many kids and teenagers at ucsf has just finished up a study comparing suicide rates among adults and children don't. the pandemic, and the numbers here are eye opening in 20 23,008 adults took their own lives here in california. that's at 11% drop from the year before. now, when it came to people under the age of 18. therea 24% increase fromn
emergency care physician at ucsf who was part of this study. dr. noble good to have you on here. obviously the findings here are are deeply troubling. what do you believe? we're the key factors that led to this increase in suicides we saw here in california among young people. right. that's it. thank you for having me this. it's a great question. it's really the discrepancy here. we know that covid has been very stressful year for all people in california, but the fact that adults who were more likely to become sick from covid lose their jobs have economic and security. the fact that their suicide rates actually decreased. the suicide rates among ls and increase really is, is alarming and eye catching, and the thing that is unique to adolescence is that they have endured the longest period of social isolation of any demographic group in california. so. they have been out of school, which is their
primary source of socialization for 15 months, which is an incredibly long time that's longer than nursing home nursing homes were closed. that's longer than people have been out of the workforce, and we're really worried that this is this has had serious repercussions for kids. mental health in in the ucsf emergency department, we saw a 66% increase in the number of kids coming in with suicidal ideation. last year. a doubling of kids requiring hospitalization for eating disorders. and now we see this very significant increase in actual completed suicides last year beat beyond just the fact that you have so many young people who are doing virtual learning you you have the issues of social isolation. is there any any sort of commonality that we confined here? any other? way to look at which young people might be most at risk for potentially having suicidal thoughts or or
committing suicide. it's you know, it's hard to know when the kids were kept in isolation, so the other big piece of the puzzle here is that kids have had reduced access to mental health services, so it's likely not just the social isolation of being out of school. the schools have traditionally served as a significant reference point for mental health services. they screen kids in length. um, two services and that has been absent for the most part with the lack of in person schooling. so in order to really identify these kids, they need to get back to school. at least you know for socialization and check ins with trusted adults with teachers with coaches with counselors. and to really figure out who was suffering the most, and to get them the help that they need. all right. so what can be the takeaway from from these findings and there's you know, huge disparity that you found here, you know, in terms of suicides between young people and adults here, how could we use this data to address the problem and
come up with some solutions? yeah. yeah two things. one is that when we draft are covid policies we have to consider the risks and benefits of all of those policies. so for kids, they have always been at a pretty low level risk for covid. in fact, just 23 of the 65,000 deaths from covid in the state of california are among people under the age of 18. so when you're not protecting the kids themselves from illness by closing down schools, but you are really increasing their risk of mental health. that's got to be part of the calculus when we come up with with our policies, such as closing down schools, our tolerance for perpetually close schools and then second going forward. we really need to make sure that kids have access to high quality mental health services. the first thing is to try to prevent. mental health problems to the greatest extent possible socializing. kids in school is
a good step in the right direction started over the summer would be a great urgent step that we could take not waiting until the fall. but then, once kids are back, they really need to be screened and talked to about how they're doing with trusted adults and get them the care that they need. yeah, that is so important here, moving forward appreciate you coming on to discuss these findings. dr jean noble from ucsf. thanks for doing it. thanks for having me absolutely, and a reminder here for the audience, if you or anyone you know, is struggling with their mental health. there is help available, you can call the national suicide prevention lifeline at 1 802 7382. 55 overwhelming feeling of helplessness and hopelessness. as i was listening to my co workers get gunned down. evita a worker describes the chaotic moments of last week's deadly shooting out of santa's a rail yard. the frantic text messages that he exchanged with his loved ones. also pride month

we do it every night. like clockwork. do it! run your dishwasher with cascade platinum. and save water. did you know certified dishwashers... . while a running sink uses that, every two minutes. so, do it with cascade. the surprising way to save water. this... is what freedom sounds like. and this. this is what freedom smells like.
for a lot of people i just want, you know i'm here if you need me your grades like look at me when i'm saying this your grades, they do not matter to you when it comes to me, loving you. so if you have all zeros, i care about you just as much as if you have all force. okay and like your grades do not determine your value. when that negative self talk starts to appear, that's where you wanna be aware. are there because the next step is to challenge that self talk. think about andy spade educator has gone viral on tiktok's with videos of uplifting interactions with his students over the past year, donovan taylor hall teaches a course focused on social, emotional learning to middle schoolers at the impact academy. that's a charter school in hayward. i recently had a chance to talk with mr donovan as his kids call him about how his virtual classes during the pandemic helped inspire his students. to believe in
themselves for me when we went online, i was like, all right, well, time to shine right relationships first, like how the kids are doing first. that was kind of like my thought process into this. i want to make the kids laugh. i want them to learn some skills that will help take care of themselves and teaching them things like gratitude over the during the pandemic was really important because. i think that it was really easy for a lot of people, including adults to really sink into the low place because things felt so negative and so rough for so long and so giving kids the opportunity to think about an express the things that they were grateful for, outside of themselves and within themselves gave them the capacity to feel hope into feel optimism and to be little like beacons of light and their communities and in their lives because for some of the kids. they were stepping up and being positive for the adults and their family and the adults in their lives. and i think that
this this pandemic just really highlighted how important it is to really think about the whole development of kids. and i hope going back to school that we continue to think about their social emotional growth and how we can support kids to really helped them thrive not to just get through the system. to get good grades but to really thrive and haven't understanding of who they are. yeah. how do you know when you have have reached your students. how do you know when you've made a difference? well so one of the things that's really important to me is that i'm influencing them and not manipulating them. that's really important. there's a difference between them, and one of the biggest ways to know is. if they come to this like understanding on their own, and so they say something back to me, and i said to them, like six months ago, and i want to be like i told you that, but, you know, i don't say it because i'm like, no, they integrated it and they learned it and they dealt with it and so, creating systems where kids
feel safe until trustworthy. kids are really open. they just shared with me how they felt and they've shared with me. how these skills have helped them. they really are honest about the tea back. they give. it's helped me really figure out what skills resonate with kids of that age. and what skills don't i wanted to also incorporate some other things? i was learning for myself as a young adult? he's i struggled a lot as a kid. with depression and with substance abuse to the point where i almost took my life when i was in college, and after that, i realized that i needed to learn. there are some things i just hadn't learned how to take care of myself how to love myself. build myself up, and so i started to apply that work with kids, and i realized pretty quickly that it was really beneficial, especially for middle schoolers at that age, and so one of my biggest goals is to help kill kids build self determination. and so for a lot of adults who watch the stuff they feel like really happy to see positive
work happening with kids, but what i really want them to recognize that i'm teaching them fundamental skills. that can transform the way that they see themselves. they did they see the world the way they see their learning and their growth and that can really help them anchor themselves and who they are and to move throughout the world with a stronger connection to themselves. all right, so how did the tiktok's thing happened here? what you post you posted some of your interactions with your students. on tiktok's here and it just blows up. well, yeah, we're how surprised were you? well i mean, so i've always wanted to be a speaker for kids. that was really my goal. and so a lot of people will think that like i'm just a teacher or not just a teacher that i. them specifically a teacher. but my goal was always to bend to be a speaker. my dream is to have like a tv show for kids, because that's what i did theater in journalism when i was younger, so i've really been building this vision for a long time, and i was doing all these things to try to make it work and like nothing was spitting. but then my kids made me make a tiktok's because they're like you're so silly.
you should put these videos on tiktok's and i did in the first, like you know, seven videos or eight videos or just me being obnoxious and the kids liked it. and then i realized that i had this really rare opportunity because people don't often get to see me working with kids, and i've said for years like if people could see that. that is, that is what this work is about. that is the goal. they will know that this work is important if they can see and hear what it sounds like. moving forward. mr donovan tells me that beyond his work in the classroom, he wants to continue spreading his message of positivity with the world trying to reach as many kids as he can through his online videos so you can check him out, of course on tiktok. coming up a dark moment in u. s history. hundreds of african americans killed and a thriving community wiped out up next. a live report from tulsa or president biden commemorated 100 years since the 1921 race massacre, how he's using the event to try to combat racial inequities.

financial support is going to bring back. these husbands and fathers and brothers to their families, but we know that they're deep needs of these families and folks that were affected by this crisis are needingoth in the moment and in long term, and so our hop and generous donations that we've received and will receive will help toc some of the burden that this tragedy has put upon these families, and it's really been so heartbreaking scene. the families there, um, seen the memorial that sanders, a city hall with people just coming by saying no. you know, i rode the vita. not everyone might be able to make a financial contribution in at this time. but are there other ways that you see that people can help? you know one thing that we've heard from our brothers and sisters that work at vita is that when you do see a bus driver when you see someone that has the vt, a uniform on let them know that
you're with them that you support them that you're sorry for their loss. we know that right now the families and folks that were on the scene. we're gonna need a lot of support to get through the next weeks months years. and so if folks could even give $20 look that makes a difference, and so from $20 to thousands of dollars were really encouraging folks to give that financial support brought also that moral support when you see the tape workers out in the community serving us and, you know, sometimes we see differences between management and workers. but we really saw the vt. a management say they are suspending service. they're giving the workers time to heal to get counseling did that highs you what did you think about that kind of outpouring? you know, folks like the vita servants have carried us through the pandemic. essential workers that have really stepped up over the last year, particularly, and it was no surprise that we would see the kind of leadership from
vita and the public servants to say, um we're standing in solidarity and every way possible that they can on do you know, i think the entire community is wrapping our arms around the workers, the families and really any victim of gun violence like this. and finally, maria, how long are you going to be collecting these donations? and then once you do get them, how are you going to go about just repeating them at this time we haven't sent and date but what we know is that there are some immediate needs of the families and. may be needing around funeral costs, flying family members in and so many other things, but we also know that folks have lost income and came for rent and paying for these that their children they have, so we will continue to raise funds. at this moment. we may be announcing an end date in the next few days. right now. the funds will go to the victims. if you donate online, our credit card processor pays our charges the 2.8% fee. but
besides that all the money from individual donations will go to supporting those affected. andre will have an advisory board that will help us make sure that we're doing that in a way that really serves victims of these crimes. thank you so much, maria. no. well, fernandez from working partnerships. yusa thank you for joining us. thank you. and if you would like to help participate in this week's giving day drive by supporting working partnership, yusa for those families of the nine victims of the vt shooting, you can just scan the q r code right there on your screen to learn more. oh very weather after yesterday's heat temperatures will be coming down by just a few degrees. in fact, that cooling trend will continue as we head into what wednesday and beyond. with no major heat in our forecast, also not in our forecast. no rain falls or dry weather stretching. really? wouldn't it would it would not expect much rain this time of year, but it's really not going to show up in our forecast this week.
in terms of the water supply. there's so many ways to co you e largest 48 reservoirs the statistics as you can see, coming up for capacity, average and last year capacities over 28 million acre feet and a graffiti is basically imagine a football field and covering that with a foot of water, and that's the unit of measurement. so there's a lot of numbers here. but as you can see, right now, we're just at 46% of capacities. there's not much weight in they're gonna be adding much more in the way of rain or snow pack into our water supply. so this is what we have, and we have to manage our way through with over the coming months. lots of fog, though just offshore, low clouds and fog banked up near the immediate coastline is becoming closer. pretty good, aren't you are a breeze and looks like already some patches heading back into san francisco san francisco bay already this afternoon as far as the temperature change compared to four o'clock yesterday, everybody has a minus sign in front of them, especially for the inland spots and up in the north bay, santa rosa and even
fairfield down around 14 15 degrees. now it is still warm inland. still a few spots in the eighties to right around 90 degrees, but definitely cooler temperatures, coast side and right around the bay as we're looking at right now, looking out toward sf, more low clouds and fog here coming by the fog, kind of drifting over the hills and the clouds will gradually expand. so what happens? we typically talk about a shallow marine layer and we have the hot temperatures and lynn the cool temperatures near the coast. that marine layer will gradually deepen and that'll send in that cooler marine air. all the way the inland spots over the next few days, starting out tomorrow morning. partly cloudy skies and areas of fog and know what big changes here temperatures most areas will be in the fifties. this a big area of high pressure we were talking about over the past couple days, it's beginning to lose its grip as his cooler weather feature moves in from the north and from the west. so with that al cooley trend with temperatures, not a huge drop off, but still steadily dropping off each and every day, especially as we head toward thursday and friday. now tomorrow, still a few small could be in the upper
eighties for your wednesday afternoon. san francisco 61 santa rosa around 81 degrees and san jose in the upper seventies and look ahead another warm day inland. you could see what we do, though we shave off a few more degrees is we had a thursday and then the friday maybe a little bit of a bump by the weekend by saturday and looks like we're cool things down once again into into sunday. so if in terms of a fire danger, of course fire season a huge concern for us, at least that we're not talking about any extreme heat over the next five days, and that's a kind of a nice development a least if it's just a short about a time. yeah, we'll take a little break. thank you. coming up next here on the four a teenager versus a mama bear up next. see how this girl came to the rescue after the bear starteder her dogs and coming up tonight at policeo from last week's mass shooting at that vita facility. the sheriff will update us within the next hour and show us the video as officers real. lives
