Students and Families, Good Friday afternoon!
Today we closed out the seventh week of school! The first quarter of school ends on Friday, October 8, 2021. Make sure that you are focusing on all your classes and working towards a successful start to your school year. Parents please do all that you can to support your student in their learning.
We had a fantastic homecoming week last week with lots of great activities and ending with an amazing victory over Vista Del Lago. We are excited to announce that we will be having our Homecoming Dance on Friday, October 29. More details on the dance will be sent to you! All of our Fall sports are off to good starts to their seasons, please see the link or QR code below for Fall games.
As you know, students sometimes get caught up in social media trends that can cause harm to themselves or others. These trends typically come and go, but are often replaced by an equally senseless craze. The latest phenomenon that is trending among teenagers on Tik Tok is called Diabolical Licks (also known as Devious Licks) whereby kids steal items from their schools then post what they have stolen on Tik Tok. These items can include soap dispensers, school equipment, technology, toilet paper, paper towels, fire extinguishers, and other random items. Unfortunately, this trend has made its way to Corona High School and other Corona-Norco schools, causing damage to our facilities.
Please have a conversation with your student and make it clear to them that anyone caught stealing or vandalizing our school could be arrested by the Corona Police Department, made responsible for paying damages, and issued suspensions. We value your support in keeping Corona High School safe and clean, and appreciate any information that can help us put an end to the vandalism and theft of school property we have experienced this week.
Thank you and please take a minute to look over our newsletter for valuable student and parent information!

***REFLECTIONS ART CONTEST***
Corona High School has won at the district level 2 years in a row. Some of our students' artwork went all the way to state level the year before last and won! To add to this, a board member was so impressed by our Film Production winner last year, that the video was shown to the entire board and shared throughout the community via zoom (with the student's permission). Corona High has amazing talented students!!!
This year's theme is "I Will Change The World By....."
The categories are:
- Dance Choreography
- Film Production
- Music Composition
- Visual Arts
- Special Artist Division
At the last Reflections meeting, the PTSA representative for Reflections announced "Corona High is on fire!" Yes we are! We have so many talented students ready to celebrate their gifts!
Students can find all categories packets in the front office or online. In the office, there is a printed packet for each category explaining what is needed for that particular entry including the student entry form. The artist statement is very important so if a student has questions, please send him/her to Alisa, our school secretary. All entries are due to Alisa no later than NOVEMBER 2nd.
***Masks Required Indoors***
As we face a rise of COVID cases in our community, please be aware of the following updates to our COVID-19 safety plan to ensure student and staff safety:
The California Department of Public Health requires that all TK-12 public schools continue to keep masks mandatory for all students and staff indoors on our campuses, regardless of vaccination status, to help limit the spread of the highly contagious Delta variant.
Additionally, we will no longer be providing temperature checks at the entrances of our schools, instead we are asking our parents to screen your students for COVID-19 symptoms before school, and we ask that you please keep your students home if they’re sick.
Lastly, our campuses will continue to be closed to parents and visitors during the school day to limit any potential spread of COVID-19. We will have staff available to help guide our students to their classrooms as we start the new year.
Thank you all for your trust and partnership.
***FREE MEAL PROGRAM***
Although, meals are free, families are encouraged to submit a meal application. Qualifying families may be eligible for discounted programs such as reduced utilities and/or internet cost, and advanced placement test fee waivers.
