Attendance Policy Change
Students can no longer be called out and are not able so sign themselves out. All students MUST be signed out at the front office by a parent/guardian or someone on the emergency card.
Please note if student leaves campus and is not signed out at the front office they will be unexcused even if a call is made. We have made these changes for the safety of our students.
Late students will only be excused if documentation can be provided. A tardy will remain unexcused even if a parent signs the student in.
Any calls made to the auto dialer take 24 hours to process. Please be patient.

Attention current seniors…
On Tuesday, September 27th all seniors will take a free ACT during the academic school day on the WFHS campus. This is a standard ACT that can be used for college admission and NCAA eligibility purposes. We will operate under a “late start” schedule that day for freshmen, sophomores, and juniors and that specific schedule will be posted at a later date. Please join us in reinforcing how important it is for students to take these standardized tests seriously and put forth their best effort, as these tests yield valuable information for the students and their families and provide us with valuable information as to how to continue to better prepare our students as they prepare for higher education.
Please direct any questions to Dr. Jennifer Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Higley schools to send home AzMerit Reports
Last spring, Higley Unified students took the AzMERIT statewide assessment in English language arts and math. Schools will soon send test results home with students. Families will receive a comprehensive score report with detailed information. Additional information about the AzMerit test is on the district website.
Our School is using PBIS Rewards to help us with our PBIS program. PBIS Rewards is a technology-based PBIS Management System that helps us with our behavior incentive program. You can learn about PBIS Rewards at their website (www.pbisrewards.com).
Our students can earn rewards throughout the day by meeting our behavior expectations. These rewards are in the form of electronic points. They can redeem these points for privileges, tangible items, access to events, and other similar things. Our expectation is that we will see overall behavior improve throughout the school and that the number of referrals we have will decrease.
PBIS Rewards has a Parent App that will give you some insight into how your child is doing with respect to our PBIS program. The Parent App will run on most smart devices, including smartphones and tablets. You can find it in the iPhone/iPad App Store, Google Play, and the Amazon App Store. Just search for “PBIS Rewards Parent.”
This week, your student will bring home a letter that has their unique QR code. Once you have installed the app on your phone, you can confirm your relationship with your student by scanning their QR code. Once you have done this you'll be able to see your students progress with PBIS Rewards.
You can add more than one student to the app, even if they go to different schools, as long as the school is using PBIS Rewards.
We encourage you to talk with your student about what they must do to be successful with PBIS Rewards and to encourage them when you see them being successful.
