SAN BRUNO, Calif. (AP) -- Too few students forced the school board to close an elementary school near the site of the 2010 San Bruno natural gas pipeline explosion.
The San Francisco Chronicle (http://bit.ly/UkHvWc ) says the board voted unanimously on Wednesday night to close Crestmoor Elementary School at the end of the school year.
Many families who lost homes in the explosion and fire sent their children to Crestmoor.
The San Bruno school board wanted to shut down the school last year because enrollment was only about 175 students.
But residents said losing a neighborhood school would be unfair to youngsters who had lost homes.
School trustees said the school could stay open if voters approved a $10 million parcel tax. But the measure on the November ballot didn't get the two-thirds majority to pass.
