Caltrans Gasker Slough camera showing Highway 1 flooded

Manchester Elementary School was closed Tuesday and Wednesday, March 14 and 15, due to unsafe road conditions caused by another very heavy rainstorm.  Highway 1, the only route south of the school for many families and staff was eventually closed overnight Tuesday and into Wednesday due to flooding but driving conditions on many roads were unsafe from early morning on Tuesday.

The timing of the storm made for very disappointed students and staff because a field trip for grades 1-8 to a fish hatchery had to be canceled on the only day of the school year it could be scheduled.
