Corona-Norco Unified School District Volleyball Tournament Cancelled Today
The Corona-Norco Unified School District received some information this morning regarding Murrieta Valley High School (MVHS) located within the Murrieta Valley Unified School District. Murrieta Valley High School will be closed Monday as one of their employees is being tested for the Coronavirus disease, which is still NOT a confirmed case and strictly testing. More information regarding this news can be found here.
While risk remains low, this news has prompted the Corona-Norco Unified School District and Santiago High School to make an assessment of any potential contact students or staff have made with Murrieta High School personnel or students. As such, it was determined that the Santiago High School boys volleyball teams played at MVHS yesterday. While the probability of the Santiago High School volleyball players having been exposed is extremely slim, out of an abundance of caution and safety of our student athletes, CNUSD has cancelled today’s tournament where the Junior Varsity team would have been participating. There is no need to panic, as this is purely precautionary. Click here to visit CNUSD’s Updates page.
The City of Corona and CNUSD encourage you to follow best practices to keep yourself and others healthy, such as:
- Frequently washing your hands with soap and water
- Keeping surfaces clean
- Sneezing or coughing into a tissue or your elbow
- Most importantly, keeping your child home when they are sick with flu-like symptoms, including a fever of 100-degrees Fahrenheit or 38-degrees Celsius or higher, shortness of breath, and coughing
- Call your school if your child is staying home sick.
