Parent meeting to be held for new Solana Ranch School in Carmel Valley

By Karen Billing

Solana Ranch School in Pacific Highlands Ranch is heading into the final stretch, getting ready to welcome new students this fall.

The carpet has been delivered, the solar canopy has been erected to allow solar power, roll-up doors have been installed in the art room, plant boxes have been built in the school garden and the play equipment will go up in the next four to six weeks.

According to Caroline Brown, the Solana Beach School District’s director of technology and new facilities, the building will be secure by the end of the week.

Solana Beach School District board members toured the school recently and praised the facility at the board’s Jan. 16 meeting, noting that it blends into the surrounding neighborhood.

“There is a high level of excitement about the school in Carmel Valley,” said board member Vicki King. “It’s a very big deal to our community.”

A meeting for parents of students who will attend the new school this fall will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 5. The meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. at the Pacific Highlands Ranch Recreation Center at 5950 Blazing Star Lane, San Diego, 92130.

Parents will hear information about Solana Ranch from Brown and Principal Jerry Jones, and will be able to ask questions and provide input. Parents will also hear an overview on ways to get involved in the PTA and the Solana Beach Foundation for Learning. A follow-up meeting on the PTA and Foundation will be held the next day, Feb. 6, at 8:45 a.m. at Carmel Creek School.

Parents are encouraged to sign up for emails and participate in surveys on the school’s new website. Visit and select Solana Ranch in the drop down menu.
