SpeakUp for Safety 

CNUSD families, as an ongoing support to our commitment to safe schools for all, we are excited to announce the launch of a new SpeakUp for Safety tipline that will allow students to easily and confidentially report threats of violence, bullying, peers in crisis, and other imminent concerns that affect students’ well-being and security.

The SpeakUp for Safety tipline will be continually monitored by safety professionals, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all year long. Non-life-threatening tips will be quickly routed to designated school or district staff members, and in severe situations, district-appointed contacts will be immediately notified to take action. In the most urgent cases in which a student is in immediate danger and representatives are unable to notify a district-appointed contact, law enforcement will be contacted to intervene.

CNUSD SpeakUp for Safety tipline can be called or text at 951-589-0600 or emailed to [email protected]

    Update on student item(s) drop-off procedure:

    Our Todd Elementary Staff is always finding ways to best serve our Toucans! If the drop-off item is medically necessary or eye glasses, we will make sure to get these items to the student. For items such as homework, lunches, chromebooks, water bottles etc, in order to preserve instructional time, we are unable to interrupt the class. Please let your child know that you will be bringing the item OR make it a practice that if they are missing something to always come up and check the drop off table in the office. Thank you for understanding and support.

    Attention Families:

    For the safety of our Toucans, staff and families, dogs are not allowed on our campus when dropping off or picking up your student(s).
