  • Information online about new state assessment - AZMERIT
    In November 2014, the Arizona State Board of Education adopted a new statewide language arts and math achievement test, AzMERIT, to assess Arizona students. The assessment will be administered this spring in grades 3 through high school. Students in grades 4, 8 and high school will still take the AIMS Science Test.
    The Arizona Department of Education has posted information about the test for all stakeholders.
    Higley’s Research and Assessment team has created a section with all the information pertinent to parents. It can be found here.

    You may view the entire ADE website about AzMERIT.
    Students will be taking the test between March 30 and May 8.  Each school will provide further communication to families as test schedules are finalized. For Higley students, this will be a completely computer-based assessment.

  • Release of student reminder
    Students who leave campus for any reason – doctors’ visits, illness, etc., - must be authorized to do so by a parent or guardian. This can be done by a parent/guardian signature in person at the school office or by verbal approval to school office personnel.  When the student does leave campus with verbal approval to do so, he/she must sign the student release page at the front office.
    The attendance clerk or other office staff member will validate the request as deemed appropriate. Thank you for your cooperation.

  • 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.

  • Notice Regarding Deliveries to Students

    This year you will see a change in our office policy regarding deliveries to students. In order to minimize the disruptions to instruction, we are restricting deliveries for students to items that are essential to the educational process.  Therefore, classes will not be interrupted for delivery of items.   Flowers, birthday items, pizza, etc. will not be accepted from businesses for delivery.  Restaurant deliveries are also not allowed.  

    Parents will need to wait for their student to be called to the office between classes to receive ANY item that has been brought for them by a parent or family member, including, but not limited to lunch money, homework, or PE clothing.  

    The front office will NOT be responsible for delivering items to s
    tudents.  We appreciate your understanding as we make this change for safety and fidelity to instruction. Thank you
