Message from the Principal


    Dear T-Bird Family, 

    I am excited to welcome everyone to Coronado High School for the 2021-2022 school year! It promises to be another great year of academic success, excellence in our extracurricular endeavors, and a continued renewal of maintaining a caring and nurturing school experience for all of our students. 

    Due to the pandemic, last year was a challenging school year for everyone. We are looking forward to having all students back for In-Person Instruction. Safety, Social Emotional Wellness, closing learning gaps, and academic excellence will be our priorities for this year. Please take a moment to read Interim Superintendent Sheffield’s Safe Return to School Plan found on the main EPISD website.  

    House Bill 4545:  

    This bill was passed on June 16, 2021, which calls for varying degrees of Accelerated Instruction to be provided for every student who did not pass or attempt last year’s STAAR and EOCs. Information for those impacted will be provided within the next few weeks. We will utilize an Advisory Tutoring Period each Wednesday, as well as other tutoring opportunities to provide Accelerated Instruction. For those students not under 4545, SEL (Social Emotional Learning) and Career and College Readiness will be provided during Advisory Period.    


    Attendance is vital to your student’s success. Please ensure your student comes daily, however, if they do not feel well, please keep them at home. Any absence should be reported to the Attendance office.  

    PTSA: Please consider joining our award winning PTSA. Check the link on the Coronado website for information on joining.

    Coffee with the Principal: 

    Please join me for Coffee with the Principal, typically the first Wednesday of the month at 9:00 am. It is a great opportunity to receive upcoming information and to engage in conversation with me and others. I hope to see you there. 

    That’s about all for now. I thank you for supporting our wonderful school and being a part of this wonderful community. Go T-Birds!
