  • Wondering how to get your schedule??
     
    We will be distributing schedules at our Open House! If you can't make it to the Open House you can pick it up the first day of school. At the Middle School level we communicate almost completely through e-Alerts (emails sent from school) and the website, and very rarely mail anything out. It is highly recommended you sign up to receive our e-Alerts and check the website regularly so you can stay informed. If you have any questions please feel free to give us a call!

  • 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

  • District Governing Board sets calendar for 2014/15, 2015/16 and 2016/17
     
    The Higley Unified School District board voted Tuesday to maintain the current school calendar configuration for the 2014/15 school year and move to a modified year-round calendar in 2015/16.

    The board approved calendars for the next three years based on the recommendation to the Superintendent by the calendar committee.

    With the vote, the 2014/15 school year will begin Aug. 4, 2014, and will end on May 21, 2015. There will be one-week fall and spring breaks and a two-week winter break.

    The committee used a survey to determine calendar preferences of parents, teachers and staff, and students. Based on those results, the committee made the recommendation for a transition year to make sure families have time to plan.

    The adopted calendar for 2015/16 includes a start date on July 27, 2015, and an end date on May 26, 2016, with two week fall, winter and spring breaks. The adopted calendar for the 2016/17 includes a start date on July 25, 2016, and an end date on May 25, 2017, with two week fall, winter and spring breaks.
     
    The board did ask that the standing calendar committee revisit the 2016/17 calendar to see if the end of the first semester can coincide with the start of winter break.
