News & Events

Dear Warrior Families,

 

The Administration received information that the Head Football Coach made inappropriate comments and engaged in inappropriate conduct with students. Upon learning of this incident, we immediately launched an internal investigation that ended this week. As a result of this investigation, we have terminated the Coach’s employment with Hacienda La Puente Unified School District.

 

We understand that this news may be concerning to HLPUSD families and want to assure you that we take allegations of this nature seriously. We do not tolerate misconduct of any kind on our campuses. We want students to voice their concerns in a safe environment.  We encourage any student who may feel unsafe or concerned following this incident to speak with one of our Counselors or Psychologists on campus.

 

Additionally, our Chief of Police is in contact with Industry Sheriffs regarding this matter, and we will continue to work in partnership with them.

 

Our top priority is to provide our students with a safe and welcoming environment in which to learn and grow. We work hard to ensure that the district supports, adopts, and leads efforts to protect all of the students we serve every day.

 

We thank the students and parents that brought the information to us and encourage you to contact La Puente High School if you have any questions or concerns.

 

Best,

 

Yvette Meneses

Executive Director, High Schools
