leaders in san francisco so what do you think of condoms for middle school children? it's an idea that school leaders in san francisco are considering, and as you might imagine parents have a strong opinion about it. nbc bay area has more on the controversial condom plan. >> reporter: jessica, most parents of middle school-aged kids don't want to believe those kids are sexually active, but some of them are and school officials here in san francisco want them to be safe, so they're
making condoms available on middle school campuses, which could be part of the plan. the sound of middle school kids on the playground doesn't make you think of adult behavior. but san francisco school leaders say survey results tell them some young students are sexually active. >> we have a very small population of our middle school students, only 5%, who have identified as being sexually active, and only 3% of that population are using condoms. >> reporter: knowing some students risk pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, san francisco unified is looking into expanding its high school condom availability program to middle schools. condoms would be on campus, but not exactly easy to get. >> a student could have a face to face discussion with a nurse or a social worker. and then decide if this is the time and the place to begin a sexual relationship. >> reporter: middle school parents are quick to react to

the $2 million home with sweeping views drifted down hill last week. you might recall the story. it forced crews to be an emergency demolition. the work is not over, crews still need to drill into the ground and make a well to help with the pressure on the hillside. now water samples will be taken to see if something else could be causing that home to slide. and another twist in the escaped story of the inmates. all three recaptured escapees appeared in the santa ana courtroom today. investigators say the inmates planned their jail break for months. they kidnapped a taxi driver with his cab and drove to san jose. this was from southern california. two of the criminals then got into a fight in a motel room near the sap center over whether or not to kill that cabbie. eventually one escapee and the taxi driver returned to santa ana where that fugitive surrendered. the two remaining escapees then got caught in san francisco.
the u.s. department of justice will look into the san francisco police department's use of force. the probe in the wake of the shooting death of mario woods, but the doj will examine whether racial factors play a role in policing in the city. now, the city will not be required to adopt any of the recommendations the feds make. the review will take about eight to ten months to complete. back to our super bowl coverage, the country is watching and protesters are taking full advantage of that. >> with thousands of fans in the bay area, they're taking no chances. nbc bay area cheryl herd is at super bowl city in san francisco. >> reporter: well, jessica what you see behind me is what sports fans will see all week long. groups with the message know that. many causing disruptions to make sure their voices get heard. >> you want to work for 3.25 an
hour? no, right. >> reporter: a protest on the streets of san francisco, not just any protest. this one involving uber drivers who are protesting pay cuts. >> this will wake them up, you know, it's like david and golia goliath. >> reporter: this gave the disgruntled drivers a platform to show the world why they're angry into they're constantly lowering our fares and we can't survive. >> there are 40,000 driving partners throughout the bay area. and for many of them our message to them is we realize price cuts are difficult. >> reporter: while uber drivers attempted to snarl traffic during the evening commute? the justice for mario woods coalition welcomed the nfl to san francisco on sunday. police reform, not super bowl mania, taking center stage.
police say that the public has the right to protest, but so. >> if you're there to block traffic and cause problems and break the law then we'll have plans to assess that. >> reporter: in san francisco, cheryl herd, nbc bay area face. >> well, treourists are not the only ones enduring the security checks. even the locals who are just trying to get to working feeling the pinch. long lines, even for those returning from lunch, officials and companies are urging everyone if you can to telecommunicate or just take a few days off. and over the next couple of days, a tiny bit of weather. >> we escaped a huge issue which would have been rainfall. the forecast models showing the potential of rainfall on super bowl. but again, the forecast looks dry.
you get a preview of what is coming up. the big thing we're tracking at this very moment, the cold temperatures outside. i know you felt it if you're visiting out of santa clara. out at the sap center, 40 degrees, a few clouds. the east bay, 37, the wind kicks up, feels like 33, back into san francisco, 48, and the north bay at 45, the cloud cover moving in right now should stop any kind of dramatic dropoff from that current temperature. the big thing we'll find as we head through tomorrow morning's forecast, the rainfall returning. the north bay, a cold rain, areas of scattered rain for san francisco, the chance goes down for the peninsula and the south bay. we can drive you through this next incoming storm system. you can see at 6:30 a.m., the heavier rainfall, marin, napa, sonoma counties and then pushing down into san francisco maybe a few drops towards san jose as well. once we hit 10:30 a.m., the cold front really begins to push to
the south, the best chance across san jose the peninsula and contra costa counties, alameda, to get activity for tomorrow. by the afternoon, likely the cloud cover, we'll see breaks on the drying side of this storm system. another system quickly behind it arriving at 1:00 p.m. to the north, rainfall back by wednesday, how much rainfall will the two storms see? i would like to see a whole bunch more but doesn't look like it's possible. the way they're moving in there is dry air associated with it. this is the best we can do in terms of the totals, 6700th of an inch in san jose, san francisco, about the same, napa, 1200th, and santa rosa, 1800th. and that looks like about it over the next three days. let's look at the forecast throughout tuesday heading to san francisco super bowl city, you may need the umbrella in the
morning, by the afternoon a few breaks of the sun and looking at the coast for the embarcadero, palo alto, back to pacifica, 54 degrees, if you're here visiting you will get a view out there. chilly, up in the south bay, san francisco expects 57, for the tri-valley and east bay no major differences for the microclimates. oakland coming in at 57 and the tri-valley, livermore at 54. let's look at the next 15 days with the current el nino pattern in place. everybody is always anxious for the next round of big storms and once again we have that rainfall returning next -- tomorrow morning. also this wednesday evening, dry super bowl with high pressure moving in. that is on saturday and also on sunday. then it looks like february 12th into the 17th, that could be a much wetter weather pattern returning. so i would like to let the santa clara stadium know if they need
