Internet Safety

Please be advised that Perris Union High School District (PUHSD) is aware of the internet posts, which appear to be a nationwide hoax, having to do with clowns. Some posts state that clowns will be coming to schools and causing harm. We are working closely with the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department in an effort to put our students and school community at ease. PUHSD in conjunction with the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department and School Resource Officer (SRO) Robles completed an investigation in which students were interviewed and websites were researched confirming that this indeed is a hoax. To date we have not had any verifiable clown sightings near or at any schools within PUHSD.

We are aware that there have been threats on the internet and we urge you to have conversations with your students regarding the sites they are visiting as well as general Internet safety. In addition to online safety, now may be a good time to have a conversation about being aware of their overall surroundings. For more information about online safety, please visit our Digital Citizenship site at: http://hhs.puhsd.org/digcit

Please rest assured that the safety of our students, staff, and school community is a priority for Perris Union High School District. We take every threat seriously and will take the necessary measures to address them and utilize all of the resources at our disposal to ensure the safety and security of all parties.

Scholar Plus Logo HHS is working toward improving how we support students and the local community in their digital life and behavior. Please fill out this survey: tinyurl.com/zkgpnky

This will help inform how we can better serve the community in digital citizenship.

Race to Submit is challenging high schools in Riverside County to increase their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) submission rates and help students discover the financial aid available to them.

Stop Ahead

Please be advised that when students return to school on Monday January 11th there will be a new all-way stop and marked crosswalk installed at the intersection of McLaughlin and Briggs Road (just south and east of the stadium). The City of Menifee and the County of Riverside have worked closely with us on a plan to further improve traffic and pedestrian safety around our campus. This new stop sign and cross walk are only one part of a longer term plan for ongoing traffic improvements in the vicinity of the school. We recognize this change will require a modification to driving habits on Briggs Road - we appreciate your cooperation as we continue to seek to improve safety for pedestrians and drivers at Heritage High School.

College Kickoff #KOTC15
October 14, 2015 marks our first annual “Kickoff to College” event. Students in all grade levels will be participating in activities that focus on preparing them to be college and career ready. Our students’ college and career readiness is more important now than ever before. Approximately 90 percent of the fastest-growing jobs in this country require post-secondary training. The benefits of educational achievement directly translate not only into meaningful careers, but also into higher future incomes for our students. For these reasons, college and career readiness is one of our top priorities. We want to ensure that ALL students graduate ready for college and/or the 21st Century workforce.

Bringing awareness to our students about college and career readiness is the motivation for the “Kickoff to College” event. It is imperative that our students have the knowledge and tools to navigate their way through the many career paths and college choices that are available to them as they transition into young adults. There is not one single path that suits every student. We want to ensure that every student has a plan for success upon completion of high school. This means we will continually engage students in activities that expose them to the tools and resources available to support planning for their future.

On the day of the event, students in all grade levels will participate in specific activities that prepare them for post high school success. We are excited to have this opportunity to bring focus and awareness to our students about the importance of preparing for their future!

Heritage High School has a new principal this year! Frank Arce comes to HHS with a wide scope of experience at different schools. After teaching for close to ten years, he started his administrative career as an Athletic Director/Dean of Students here at PUHSD. He then went on to become an Assistant Principal and worked at both the middle school and high school levels in Lake Elsinore. He comes to us from Moreno Valley, having been an Assistant Principal there for a short time, and is now back to PUHSD--a full circle as he embarks on his journey as Heritage High School principal. Mr. Arce has a wife, Esperanza Arce--who is also a school principal--and four beautiful kids. Mr. Arce is proud to be our new principal and looks forward to establishing positive relationships with our students, our staff, and our community.
