8:03 am
of your screen shows you what's happening within this school year. you can see that is for schools either closing or merging by the end of this school year community day school and parker elementary will schools will close down. rise will be merging with the new highland l of our la and hillcrest elementary school will limit its 6th through 8th grades and then on the right side, you can see the 5 schools closing by the next school year in the last 4 weeks. there's been protests, rallies, even a hunger strike by to school staff members. >> however, the district says it's closing the schools in order to deal with an expected budget deficit caused mostly by a decline in enrollment during the pandemic. the district says 35% of its schools are enrolled at below sustainable levels. more than 1000 people watch this meeting on zoom and hundreds voice. their opinions during public comment, including young elementary students asking the
8:04 am

8:05 am
plea, the vote passed narrowly. but city leaders have also been divided on this. the mayor in favor of the closure. the vice mayor against the consolidation proposal today, there's a press conference with several city leaders, including the vice mayor. they're the ones that have called on governor newsom to get involved in this and to prevent the school. so closing, they seem to have an update. is that the 2 this afternoon, then the board, the school board that just voted this morning will also meet again today this afternoon for a regular meeting. this must be some student representation there to voice their concerns, stuff. this is a seems far from over. it's definitely a heated topic. i mean, the meeting ended with people threatening to do where this goes from here. we will continue to follow. i'm sarah stinson reporting live back to you. like wondering what the other side, what their cards are. so you say they got get the state involved.
8:06 am
>> get courts involved. and then what happens to the hunger strike people? what are they doing? you know? >> he still never heard back from them. and, you know, reporting from home. i love too yesterday and driven over to the protests and been there myself because they were there. and i heard on other, you knows sources that they are just not feeling well at all. i don't know if they're going to continue the hunger strike. they're done now. want to see guys very, very intense. >> thanks all 8, 0, 6, is the time for another big story out of south as the fact that santa clara county's planning on giving an update regarding their indoor mask mandate in less than 30 minutes from right now. so we're watching that carefully. this all comes as the state has already announced. it's going to be lifting its mask mandate come next tuesday, marin county saw a county. they say they're going to go along with that very same guidance other counties, though they're still evaluating whether they'll loosen their mask restrictions or not. a local infectious disease expert doctor peter chin-hong says that not every
8:07 am
county, obviously you seeing the same numbers in terms of infections and hospitalizations. so everybody's going to be on their own timeline when it comes to lifting these restrictions. so we'll be waiting game for the eventuality that the cdc, the state and local counties kind of all come into line with each other. >> so you can full of people from sort of like upset and confused. but i think what will happen over time just take some time for all these 3 bodies to come in alignment. it's the hesitation makes a lot of sense to me because not all the regions in california, the scene. >> yeah. looking ahead, governor newsom says the state is preparing right now for the day when the coronavirus will be nothing more than an endemic, which is basically like the flu. it's with us and comes and goes each year. >> well, and the meantime, we've got to deal with it. and the contra costa county is doing just that. every county is looking at their guidelines. think about how to update them. and then also thinking about vaccines as well. and the booster. >> still encouraging people to
8:08 am
get that all a very important booster shot. kron four's camila barco actually live with more on what contra costa county is doing. good morning. camila. >> james, they're doing just that. they're focusing on getting more people to get their booster shot. but right now contra costa county is moving in the right direction or covid cases are down. the rd left. it's a mandate and he also reached a milestone with their vaccination numbers. according to county health officials, the average case number per day, it's 47% down from last week and they've also seen a 15% reduction and hospitalizations. as of last week, 80% of the total eligible population in the county is fully vaccinated. and the new health officer says contra costa lifted its health order for gyms and restaurants because of its excess with vaccinations. previously gyms and restaurants were required to verify. customers were fully vaccinated before stepping inside their business. now the
8:09 am
county says. and that that's not necessary anymore. but businesses can continue to do so if they wish. so right now, the health officer says they're focusing on getting people boosted. and according to him, less than 50% of people have received their booster shot. so they would like to see more people get that additional doses. but right now, contra costa, it looks like it might be lifting its indoor mask mandate on february 15. of course, that goes for that's a native people and unvaccinated people must continue to wear them when they're indoors. back to you guys. >> all right. thank you very much. camila 8, 0, 9, right now. and the rules are changing as well when it comes to covid. if you want to go to tourists no longer required to get the booster shot, which is probably going to open up a lot more travel. kron four's will tran standing by with the latest from sfo. >> good news. if you're planning a spring vacation or
8:10 am
summer vacation to hawaii, you don't have to be boosted. the governor scrap the plants. it was set to go into effect possibly as early as february 18th making hawaii the first state in the country to require visitors to be boosted. but the governor scrapped that plan. but there are still requirements in place, including you have to test negative for covid-19, 3 days from your flight or you have to be vaccinated before you board your plane, if not, that means once you land on the island, you will have to be quarantine for 5 days. hawaii, the strict this place in the country as far as requirements when they reopen their borders on october of 2020, many other countries already requiring booster shots. but the governor says he's not going to do that. now because the vaccination rates in hawaii are looking very good. 3 out of 4 people in hawaii have already at least gotten their first vaccine shot. and one out of 3 people.
8:11 am
well, they've already been boosted. but the bottom line is everything else is still in place. if you are probably booking tickets as you're watching this, you might want to jump all over it because with teis lack of requirement, it will not be in place. it's probably a good chance. those ticket prices will increase. >> 8.11 right now. and still speaking of prices increasing, yeah. >> everything's going up food, especially if you've been to the grocery store lately. we'll take a peek at why it's costing you more. and court documents giving us more details about what happened before the shots were fired fatally on bay area freeways. >> and here's another look at that stuff out. what you just saw moment ago doesn't look like there's anything out there that would be holding out from a flight out of the bay area. would you want to leave, though, on a day like this? daytime highs in the mid to upper 70's, beautiful sunshine overhead. but is it too? your forecast ahead.

8:16 am
passes. so be mindful of that. but temperatures will be warm enough that i think that's going to bother you too much. nothing really brisk about it. we are going to see some more hazy sunshine today that high pressure ridge, the same one that's been keeping us dry. also creates a cap right above the bay area. so it does trap a lot of those pollutants that we put up during our morning commute with us. so that's why it's been so hazy. high pressure ridge is going to stay in place to. that's going to keep us warm and dry really, for the foreseeable future. the very warmest of conditions today and tomorrow, though, in during this time today and tomorrow, both will both see ample sunshine, not a lot of cloud cover scooting overhead. so not a lot to be blocking out the full force of that sun. offshore winds are also going to help to warm us, especially noteworthy in the north bay mountains and near the coastline. those winds have already warm things up near the coastline this morning where we've started off the morning in the 60's right along the shoreline. and temperatures today in golden gate park up to 74 degrees. you're going to see a lot of people out there today. daly,

average throughout california course. the bay area. we always win. yea were more expensive. 3.55, is the national average. can you even imagine? look at our prices. >> and when you get the supreme, yeah, 5.19 a gallon. so you've got the summer blend and that's what they say. tensions over ukraine. so that has to and then oil production concerns all driving up. >> prices and taking a look around the bay at some of the counties and their averages. napa county for 87, you'll save $0.2 if you cross the border going to san francisco. if you go over to solano county for 64, so looks like they've got, quote, the cheapest, right? she least expensive gas in solano county contra costa county for 72. and again, this is all much more if you need the supreme which a lot of the new cars do just gas either you probably noticed the grocery store that the price of everything you put in your cart. >> is also going up to a new report from goldman sachs says that prices they're going to keep going up that are going up by as much as 6%. and yeah,

time right pretty southern california. i mean, we think it's nice. and, you know, sunny and warm, i would call 87 degrees hot. well, yeah, that's for the super bowl. yeah. that's the forecast high for super bowl sunday. john was talking about how it's going to be. >> potentially record-setting. and if that is the case, then, yeah, that be the hottest super bowl that they've ever played last time was actually there at memorial coliseum in 1973, was only 84. the only it was 84 degrees. then and this could beat that if they get up to 87 today of color tv is back then. and it was just coming >> but yeah, it's and john don't that dial the dial one i don't remember that. i do. remember my grandparents having an old black and white tv and yes, a candid all yet soon in the fields of a country >> well, all the warm super bowls in history of either been played in southern
8:45 am
california or miami. so that's saying something right there. now the game starts at 03:30pm. we are expecting some mid to upper 80's during especially kickoff time at the game. >> the big question is will it set that record beating the former la super bowl? because that remains to be seen. but, you know, either way it's going to be warm out there just like it is today here in the bay area, golden gate bridge looks absolutely beautiful. crystal clear skies. beautiful day out there. you will notice some haze on the horizon. again, a lot like we've been seeing lately. that's the high pressure ridge creating a capping inversion right over the bay. a lot of air pollutants just getting trapped right here with us. that does make for some moderate air quality for us. and you may notice it. you have respiratory sensitivities. skies will remain clear really through the remainder of this forecast for the rest of the week today. and tomorrow being are very warmest of days as daytime highs climb under these crystal clear skies well into the upper 70's, especially for the north bay in the interior of the state. likely even a few low 80's for
8:46 am
the interior, maybe even for the north bay come tomorrow, which will be our for the bay area. now, the north bay and the coast, you have some of our strongest of winds. half moon bay been especially windy morning. those same winds have helped to make for a warm morning at the coastline and will also contribute to the warm feel that the rest of the day brings the rest of the bay area. it's a combination of these dry, warm, offshore winds, high pressure ridge that's really resulting in temperatures spiking as warm as they will be near record breaking 70's and mid 70's that that for a lot of our coastal areas, a couple of holdouts in the upper 60's. but most of us are well into the 70's today saying carlos at 74 degrees, we've got santa clara and cupertino. each of 75 east bay temperatures range from the low 70's further inland to them in the mid 70's right along the bay shore cast for valley, oakland, berkeley and richmond. all at 75 and are very warmest spots. sonoma john bill at 78 in santa rosa at 79 degrees today. tomorrow
8:47 am
will be just as hot if not hotter than today. maybe even a couple of 80's in there. mid 70's come the weekend for most of us are really pleasant weekend next week does get a little bit cooler. but still staying dry as we likely will all the way through the following weekend after that, too. the strike trends not ideal, considering the state's drought, but it is enjoyable john, the you for that. all right. so we we talked about the traffic we've been seeing out there in the hot spot in san mateo that still there. if you're traveling along one, 0, one. >> southbound just at 92 east. traffic collision is there. so we are seeing delays along one. 0, one and 92. however, good news is we're not seeing any major delays across the san mateo bridge. a look at that. it's under 14 minutes, 8.80, to one. 0 one. as you're traveling there, the bay bridge maze that fremont street exit a little under 15 minutes. we have a traffic hazard. this popping up northbound 80 south of 5th avenue. so that earlier accident we had the air. that's clear. now we have a traffic hazard. so we're
8:48 am
seeing residual delays from that. another traffic collision of and conquer southbound 6.80, north willow pass road. it's also pretty slow along highway 4 as well and crockett down as you're traveling towards the maze. about 27 minutes for your drive. tara james, back to you. thank you. ray. all right. lets talk warriors james wiseman, participating in contact drills for the first time since injuring his knee. so it's nice to see him out on the court and rookie jonathan >> is carving out a new role for himself with the warriors kron. 4 sports director jason dumas has it all for us. and today, sports. well, we've gotten the most encouraging news regarding james wiseman in the 10 months since he got meniscus surgery. >> he had his first contact practice according to the athletic's anthony slater. it was a controlled 3 on 3 game. this was earlier in utah up to this point. wiseman's knee hasn't reacted to contact the way the team had hoped. that's why he got that knee scoped out a few weeks ago. but this
8:49 am
well, it's a good sign in the hope is that white men can get back to be able to contribute to this team down the stretch in into the playoffs. the expectations will be intentionally low, but there's still belief that he can help this team this year in some way. that would be great. now, one guy who has been doing more of his fair share to help lately rookie think amanda jk has been on fire is averaging 18 5 in 3 games in february. he has stepped up and played a key role in the absence of guys like draymond green, andre iguodala and otto porter junior. he even played a lot of spot center duty. now it seems realistic that camenga will have a role for the rest of the season and into the playoffs. we didn't know that earlier if he would be able to contribute this much this year after the game on monday, klay thompson talked about coming this progression. >> he's so good around the rim. he's really good in the post. his jump shot of a fluid. and it is no, no. i
