School District temporarily changes schedule and adds bus during closure

Updated April 7

By on Wed, April 5, 2006

EDITOR’S NOTE: This release from the Cabrillo Unified School District was revised on Friday, April 7.  Hours for Cunha and the high school have been pushed back 30 minutes and bus service been added to Cunha from neighborhoods north of Frenchman’s Creek.  School will be closed next week for spring break, and the new schedule will be in place April 17 until Devil’s Slide is reopened.

In order to assist the community in addressing the traffic impact from the closure of Devil’s Slide, Cabrillo Unified School District has developed a temporary alternative plan regarding Cunha and the high school schedules.  We have a temporary transportation assistance plan in place for Cunha students only, who live north of Frenchman’s Creek. 

The revised schedules will begin on Monday, April 17, 2006, and be in place until Devil’s Slide is re-opened.  While the revised schedule may not address all issues and concerns, we are hopeful that it will assist in reducing the traffic impact during the morning commute. 

The elementary schedules will remain the same.  However, if parents/guardians need to drop off students earlier than the normal starting time for school, we will have a staff member on site to supervise beginning at 6:30 a.m.  Parents are requested to walk the students to the designated area at your individual school site. 

Revised schedules 

Cunha will begin at 9:00 a.m. and end at 3:15 p.m. 

Half Moon Bay High School’s first period will begin at 8:15 a.m.; zero period will begin at 7:15 a.m.  All teachers  will be providing  tutoring from 7:45 -8:15 a.m.  

Temporary bus stops 

Temporary bus stops for Cunha students have been secured through the District’s emergency fund.  These no charge stops are temporarily in place during the closure of Devil’s Slide.  Times listed are approximate and may vary due to traffic.  THERE WILL BE NO AFTER SCHOOL TRANSPORTATION

Cunha Bus Stops:

  • El Granada School   7:35 a.m.
  • Montara Post Office   8:00 a.m.
  • Moss Beach Post Office  8:05 a.m.
  • Moss Beach Chevron station  8:10 a.m.
  • Pillar Ridge Mobile Home Park 8:20 a.m.
  • Alhambra & Cabrillo   8:20 a.m.
  • Alhambra & Columbus  8:25 a.m.
  • Medio  (West)    8:35 a.m.

We hope that these revised schedules and temporary bus stops will assist the community in addressing some of the impact of the closure of Devil’s Slide.  As soon as the Slide is re-opened, the school schedules will revert back to their original times and the temporary bussing will end.
