Press release from Cabrillo Unified School District

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.
