Corona del Mar High School cancels homecoming after reports of drunk students

- Corona del Mar High School has canceled its homecoming dance and pep rally in response to reports of student intoxication at Friday night's Battle of the Bay football game, it was reported Wednesday.

In a video message that aired on campus this week, Principal Kathy Scott called the students' alleged use of alcohol or controlled substances "extremely inappropriate" and "totally inexcusable."

In a memo sent to parents Monday, Scott said school officials expect students to represent their campus with integrity at events.

"However, we are struggling with a disconnect within our parent community where a pervasive culture exists that allows or tolerates their children to bend or break the law and violate district policies," she wrote.

A Newport-Mesa Unified School District representative declined to disclose whether any of the intoxicated students face further disciplinary action following the game at Orange Coast College's Lebard Stadium.

She also declined to provide additional information as to what reportedly occurred or how many students were involved.
