Greetings Panther Families
As many have seen on social media this past week, there were rumors of potential school violence on Friday, January 26th. As an update, and to dispel rumors I am providing the official advisory from the Corona Police Department. For the facts surrounding this investigation, please follow this link: https://local.nixle.com/alert/6376799/?sub_id=1209276
We take any threat to the safety of our school seriously and thorough investigations are always conducted. We must allow law enforcement time to conduct their work. Please be advised that at no time were students in danger. Feelings of uneasiness by our community members are certainly understandable.
I would like to reiterate that school safety is of paramount importance to the school, and we are grateful for our partnership with the Corona Police Department.
Here's your Panther Prowl for January 26, 2018.
