    Dear Solana Highlands Families,

    Solana Vista Interim Housing

    An important announcement regarding Solana Vista School Interim Housing for the 2020-21 school year.  Last night at the Solana Beach School District Board of Education meeting, the Board narrowed seven housing options to two. When the vote was taken, it was a 2 to 2 vote to approve the motion for Interim Housing Option A. Option A proposed housing Kindergarten through 2nd graders at SH and 3rd grade students at Skyline.  Without a majority vote of the Board, the motion did not pass. On February 27, a new board member will be appointed to the Solana Beach School District Board of Education reinstating the complete five-member board. At the next regularly scheduled Board meeting, March 12, 2020, the Board of Education will revisit Interim Housing for Solana Vista School students for the 2020-21 school year.

    I am Neva Ayn Magalnick, proud STREAM TOSA at Solana Highlands! I have served in many capacities across SBSD since 2003, and being in the STREAM Lab has been the most creative, forward-thinking, and integrated learning opportunity I've had the pleasure to help facilitate. It is a gift working with the Discovery Lab team, our entire staff, and most importantly, every student at Solana Highlands to prepare them for their future as problem solvers, collaborators, and life-long learners. Working with hand-held tools, our school garden, recyclable materials, LEGO robots, 3D printers, and other new technologies are truly exceptional experiences for our students... and for me!

    Congratulations to Mrs. Royster, our music teacher, the 2nd grade teachers and our 2nd grade students for a beautiful 2nd grade performance that brought much joy and warmed many hearts. The videos and photos taken will be enjoyed for years to come!

    Happy February Break! Enjoy next week with family and friends and we’ll see you bright and early on Monday, February 24th!
