Ribbon-cutting ceremony set at Cunha
The Cabrillo school community will celebrate the near-completion of a major new construction and modernization project at Cunha Intermediate by holding a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the front (office) entrance to the school at 4:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 18. The Cunha Intermediate Cub Band will provide “pre-ceremony” entertainment and students in the Cunha Leadership class will be on-hand to provide tours of the completed work immediately afterward.
The total cost of the work at Cunha is expected to be close to $27 million with most of the funding coming from a Measure K Capital Improvement Bond approved by Coastside voters in 1996. Completed work includes a new two-story structure that houses a band room, visual arts room, five science labs, and nine general education classrooms… a new library/multi-media center… significant renovations to Buildings A (including the office area), D (including new locker-rooms), E, and the Multi-Use Room… new blacktopping and landscaping… and exterior painting to give the entire campus a “new and uniform” look.
Two remaining projects at Cunha will be completed within the current school year: the construction of a new parking lot and student drop-off area at the south end of the campus following the demolition of the old B and C classroom wings and the addition of a new electronic message board at the north end of the school.
A partial list of other completed Measure K projects in the District includes the construction of a new, two-story Art and Science Building at Half Moon Bay High School… modernization work at Hatch Elementary including the school library and playground structure… modernization work at El Granada including the school library and playground structure… modernization work at Farallone View including the playground structure and parking lot work… and modernization work at Kings Mountain including the playground structure, new water service, and part of the cost of a new multi-use room that doubles as the school library.
