    The same City Heights school that nearly lost all of its teachers three years ago, is facing the same threat again.

    Of the 27 teachers at Fay Elementary, only one will not be getting a pink slip.

    That means 25 regular teachers and one temporary teacher may lose their jobs.

    The slips are just warnings, for now. 

    Most of the recipients are the exact same teachers who faced the same fate the last time.

    The cuts are part of a plan by the San Diego Unified School District to close an estimated $120 million budget gap.
