  • Weather forecast this week
    The National Weather Service issued a briefing earlier this week about another round of significant storms hitting the valley Tuesday afternoon or evening and continuing through the week. The forecast calls for stormy conditions and possible heavy rain. The Higley Unified School District plans for all schools to be in operation unless we are otherwise notified. Decisions about after-school activities will be made based on weather conditions.

    Student safety is our priority. If you are unable to safely transport your child to school, please be sure to call the school office. All absences and tardies will be excused.

    We ask that Higley families have patience with our buses as they pick up and drop off students this week. We also ask that you take extra time around school zones. Check current driving conditions and allow yourself extra time if you are driving your student to one of our campuses.

    The district will post notifications on the district and school websites, as well as Facebook, as needed. An e-alert will be sent from your school if necessary.
    Thank you

  • Dear Cooley Middle School Families,

    Welcome back to Cooley Middle School, I hope your child had a great first week back!

    The faculty and I are very excited to have students back on campus. We had a very productive summer preparing our school and planning for the 2014-2015 school year. Some highlights include developing our school wide Mission and Vision, fine-tuning our policies and procedures, and providing research-based professional development for our teachers.

  • Cooley Middle School Ranked No. 2 district middle school in Arizona
    The Arizona Department of Education recently released school performance rankings based on spring 2014 AIMS scores. We are proud to announce that all elementary, middle and high schools in the Higley Unified School District earned “A” ratings and Cooley and Sossaman Middle Schools tied to receive the second highest number of points among all 7-8  district schools in the state.
    For the last four years, the Arizona Department of Education has rated school performances with letter grades based on academic growth and student achievement. This is the fourth year in a row that the Higley Unified School District has earned an “A” grade. Higley Unified School District was the top point earner for large, public school districts in Arizona this year. In fact, five of our eight elementary schools are in the Top 10 percent of all K-6 schools in Arizona.
    “We are elated to share our ‘A’ grades with Higley families, the Towns of Gilbert and Queen Creek and the entire Valley,” said Superintendent Dr. Denise Birdwell. “It is a testament to the work of our teachers, staff, students and families. Finding out Higley is the top, large school district in the state brings recognition to the hard work of the entire Higley schools community. From students and their parents to the teachers, bus drivers, classroom aides and school principals, we wish to thank everyone for their efforts that contribute to making Higley the best district in the Valley.”
    Congratulations to all of the Cooley Cougars - students, families, teachers and staff.

  • Parentvue
    Parents can see student grades and attendance records through a system called “ParentVue.” Teachers post assignments and grades, along with daily attendance, on the system that can then be viewed by parents through a home computer or cell phone. Teachers post links to ParentVue (sometimes referred to as "Online grades") through their teacher webpages. You can also reach ParentVue through this link.

    To use ParentVue, parents need a personal code created by their student’s school. Please visit your school office for more information.
