***PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE***

Corona High School Students and Families,


Good Friday afternoon and I hope that you are all doing well! I can not believe we are approaching the end of the first quarter! First quarter grades are due from teachers on Monday 10/11/21. They should be visible in student and parent connect not long after that. Please review grades and have conversations about achievement and potential areas for growth. I want to thank each of our parents or guardians for talking to their students about the Devious Licks Tik Tok challenge. The impact at Corona High School was minimal compared to the rest of the district. This is due in large part to our students taking pride in their school and you having those crucial conversations with them about the issue. The new Devious Licks Tik Tok challenge is to hit a staff member from behind. This is a significantly more serious situation. We take great pride in developing and fostering positive relationships with our students so we hope that this will also not be an issue. If an incident of this type occurs at our school there will be a mandatory five day suspension followed by a recommendation for expulsion as this is considered assault and battery of a staff member. In addition there will be police involvement and possible criminal charges. I have confidence that we will work together to make sure that this does not happen at Corona High School. Thank you for all of your hard work and efforts in making our school year great! Have a great weekend!

***BULLYING PREVENTION MONTH***

October is National Bullying Prevention Month. It is a campaign by PACER’s National Bullying Prevention Center started in 2006. It unites communities nationwide to inform, educate, and raise awareness of bullying prevention. National Bullying Prevention Month is recognized in communities across the United States, with many schools and organizations supporting and signing as partners. Please visit the following websites to learn more about what defines bullying and cyberbullying, bullying prevention and more!

More than one out of every five (20.8%) students report being bullied (National Center for Educational Statistics, 2016). The federal government began collecting data on school bullying in 2005, when the prevalence of bullying was around 28 percent (U.S. Department of Education, 2015).

  • Bullied students reported that bullying occurred in the following places: the hallway or stairwell at school (42%), inside the classroom (34%), in the cafeteria (22%), outside on school grounds (19%), on the school bus (10%), and in the bathroom or locker room (9%) (National Center for Educational Statistics, 2016).



Corona Norco Unified School District does not tolerate bullying. #CNUSDisKind - #CNUSDitTakesaVillage is an anti-bullying and school safety social media campaign aimed at fostering a safe school environment, reducing stigma, spreading positivity, and encouraging students to be kind to one another. The goal is to challenge students, parents, staff, and the community to participate in simple random acts of kindness. Students and staff are encouraged to share their stories of kindness via social media using the hashtag #CNUSDisKind and/or #CNUSDitTakesaVillage

Re: Bus Passes



It has come to our attention that several students are getting on the bus without a valid bus pass.

To ensure student safety we ask that you remind students to carry and show their bus passes when boarding this bus, morning and afternoon.


Staff should not be putting students on the bus without a pass.

Students without a bus pass will not be able to board the bus and will be sent to the front office.

***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***

Breakfast and lunch continue to be free for the 21-22 school year! Students are welcome to grab (and eat) breakfast and/or lunch at school. Check out our menu here!

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.
