Groundbreaking set for new Solana Beach School District campus

By Karen Billing

The Solana Beach School District will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for its seventh district school on Nov. 15 at 3:30 p.m. The school in Pacific Highlands Ranch, located at Pacific Highlands Ranch Parkway and Blazing Star Lane, is set to open in fall of 2014.

The district held a naming contest for the new elementary school and has narrowed it down to five: Pacific Highlands, Solana Ranch, Solana Canyon, Gonzales Canyon and Solana Ridge.

The board is expected to select one of the five names at its Oct. 11 board meeting, held at 6:30 p.m. at the district office, 309 N. Rios Ave. in Solana Beach.
