Several La Jolla students are celebrating a big win after taking home first place at the First LEGO League (FLL) Spring Showdown on March 8 at LEGOLAND in Carlsbad.
At least one person with a connection to three La Jolla schools — Bird Rock Elementary, La Jolla Elementary and La Jolla High School — has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), San Diego Unified School District Superintendent Cindy Marten said in a statement March 17.
La Jolla Shores Association (LJSA) voted to seek legal counsel on whether to pursue a California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) suit filed against UC San Diego during its March 11, 2020 meeting at Scripps Institution of Oceanography’s Martin Johnson House. The suit would aim to reduce, delay or halt construction of UCSD’s Future College Living & Learning Neighborhood, which is expected to break ground near La Jolla Village Drive and North Torrey Pines Road in September.
During a private meeting Feb. 28 with La Jolla community leaders, UC San Diego agreed to a public forum at which it will present both its long-range campus plans and a recently completed traffic study regarding the impact of the Future College Living & Learning Neighborhood. The Future College Project is expected to house an estimated 2,000 undergraduate students, contain classrooms and space for retail and conferences, and offer 1,200 underground parking spaces along Torrey Pines Road near La Jolla Village Drive.
