Other Behavior Policies

Item Drop-off Procedures

Items to be distributed to students (PE clothes, binders, projects, lunch, etc.) must be dropped off with our front desk. At the time of drop off – you will be asked to complete a short drop off note to help ensure its proper distribution.  Our office staff will send a hall pass for your student to pick up his/her item at the end of the period if you have not previously made arrangements with your child. We will not call the classroom or use any other means to disrupt class time.  We will not accept money for any reason.  Students picking up and/or waiting for items in the front office need to do so alone.   Any other students accompanying them will be asked to leave the office.  We do not allow pizzas, donuts, cakes, cupcakes, balloons, flowers, etc. for individual celebrations to be brought onto campus and distributed during class time or at lunch time. This practice has been established to ensure the safety of our students.  Please reserve these items and celebrations for off campus and after school hours.

Internet Use

Student Internet usage is available only with parent permission.  The privilege may be revoked for improper use.  Students are responsible for keeping track of their own user names and passwords.  Please keep this information PRIVATE.  Students will use the same user name and password throughout their secondary years in our district (grades 7-12).

Dress Code

 Dress and grooming should fit in the school situation.

“A pupil who goes to school without proper attention having been given to personal cleanliness or neatness of dress, may be sent home to be properly prepared for school, or shall be required to prepare himself (herself) for the schoolroom before entering.” (California Administrative Code, Title 5, Division 2, Section 302)

The following minimum standards shall be enforced in the Corona- Norco Unified School District in order to meet the requirements of the California Administrative Code regarding grooming, dress, and appearance and the Education Code regarding free expression:

  1. Any clothing, makeup, hairstyle or wig that has been demonstrated to contribute to the substantial disruption of the orderly operation of the school is inappropriate/unacceptable for school attire. Dress should be suitable and comfortable for normal school activities. Clothing should correspond with the demands and purpose of the activity in which students participate. Clothing should be clean and in good repair.
  2. Skirts and shorts shall be worn at an appropriate/acceptable length for sitting as well as standing so that undergarments shall not show (review “Helpful Dress Code Guidelines” below).
  3. Pants must fit at the hip so they will stay on without a belt.
  4. Under garments shall not show. Pajamas can only be worn on school-designated dress up days.
  5. Footwear must be worn at all times and have hard soles. (slippers are not appropriate)

***Helpful Dress Code Guidelines***  Follow the “Rule of Thumb” when checking the length of shorts/skirts by having your student place their arms at their sides and ensuring the bottom hem of their shorts/skirt sits lower than the tip of their thumb. 

Apparel with emblems, printing, etc., that are obscene, libelous, or slanderous, or that incite students as to create a clear and present danger are not permitted on campus and may not be worn.  The following items of clothing are considered inappropriate/unacceptable for school attire:

  1. Strapless, halter tops, or tube tops
  2. Bare midriffs (no skin showing)
  3. Undergarments showing
  4. Chains or weapons (chains such as those attached to belts or wallets present a safety hazard.)

  7. Shirts, tops or sweaters unbuttoned below the sternum
  8. Bathing suits (except in the swimming pool areas and locker rooms)
  9. Hats**, hoods, visors, or sunglasses inside classrooms or office areas

Other items or manner of wearing clothing may be inappropriate/unacceptable according to A-D above.

Student Discipline

The Board of Education of the Corona-Norco Unified School District has approved and will enforce the following penalties for student involvement with dangerous objects, controlled substances, sexual harassment/battery, tobacco and nicotine products, electronic signaling devices, and fighting or attempting to fight.

Dangerous Objects:

The possession, sale or furnishing of any knife, explosive or other dangerous object, including but not limited to Swiss-Army style knives, exacto knives, box cutters, single-edge razor blades, pepper spray, BB/pellet gun, martial arts combat equipment, and brass knuckles is prohibited. If any student has questions regarding the appropriateness of an object on campus, they should ask school administration prior to bringing the object on campus. Any student who inadvertently brings an object onto campus that is prohibited should turn it in to a teacher or administrator immediately; doing so will avoid disciplinary consequences. Any student found in possession of a dangerous object shall be recommended for expulsion from the Corona-Norco Unified School District. Any student who possesses, sells, or furnishes a firearm will be recommended for expulsion for 12 calendar months.

Controlled Substances:

Controlled substances include illegal drugs and alcohol, and students found in possession, under the influence or having used them will be subject to suspension at all grade levels on the first offense, transfer to the Expellee Program in grades 7 through 8 on the first offense, and transfer to Orange Grove High School in grade 9 through 12 for the first offense. Upon a second offense, students at all grade levels will be recommended for expulsion. Any student selling or furnishing illegal drugs or alcohol will be recommended for expulsion on a first offense.

Sexual Harassment/Battery:

Sexual Harassment is a violation of state and federal laws. Discipline consequences will be applied. Specific information can be found in the Parent-Student Handbook. Students accused of sexual battery will be recommended for expulsion.

Tobacco and Nicotine Products:
Tobacco and nicotine products (such as cigarettes, chew, or other related products) are prohibited and students found in possession, or having used such products under school jurisdiction, will receive specified consequences ranging from detention to suspension and recommendation for alternative campus placement.

Other Prohibited Items:
Electronic cigarettes (E-cigs) and Vaporizers (VAPES) are prohibited from being on campus or at school-sponsored events. These items are considered drug paraphernalia and students may face suspension if found in possesion.

Fighting or Attempting to Fight:

Threatening to fight, fighting or attempting to fight will result in suspension, behavior contract, and/or in other disciplinary actions. A third fight will result in a recommendation for involuntary transfer to Intermediate STAR Program. Any student who causes serious bodily injury, strikes a district employee or make terrorist threats will be recommended for expulsion. 

Our expectation is for students to avoid verbal/physical confrontations by walking away and seeking the assistance of school staff in resolving potential conflicts.

These regulations apply to any school related activity including but not limited to:

  • On school grounds
  • Going to/from school
  • During lunch time
  • At a school-sponsored activity
