Corona del Mar High School Principal Tim Bryan used the school’s All-Call system to send a message to parents tonight, apologizing for delays during this week’s registration process.
“We are grateful for the patience our families displayed,” he said, vowing that the system will be changed in the future.

But only two cashiers were on hand to handle the checkout, which created a bottleneck with lines wrapping around the school’s quad. Some families said that seniors, who began their registration process at 1 p.m., cut in line, causing some friction.
The first day of school is Sept. 7.
