Important Information for this Friday, Feb 12

Dear Half Moon Bay High School Community:


An event unique to Half Moon Bay is the Mavericks Surf contest. Many on the Coast take pride that this incredible surf spot is in our backyard and are excited about the top surfers in the world competing in this big wave contest. However, we do have school on the day the event is being held.

Recognizing that this event was called on a valuable school day, we will be “live casting” the contest on the big screen in our Multi-Use room at break, all during lunchtime and after school. As many of you are also aware, there is no place to watch near the event any way.

Also, Friday afternoon we have basketball games at Terra Nova and students cannot attend the games if they do not attend school that day. In addition, since we are entering a weeklong holiday break, there are quite a few assignments to be turned in, and tests to be taken this day before the vacation.

Please, do not excuse your student from school. We will enjoy watching parts of it live here at school, and with an entire week off, it is essential all students complete their assignments and attend the full day of school.


John Nazar, Principal

The Bay Area BikeMobile will be at Cunha on February 23, from 12:30-3:30pm.

The only thing it can’t do is replace missing wheels or gears. While the mechanics work on your bike, they’ll explain how your bike works and how to keep it running smoothly.

Space is limited, so arrive early to secure a spot. Bike or no bike, everyone is welcome to attend!  Also, a limited supply of FREE bike helmets will be supplied to those who need them.

All CUSD families are invited.
