  • Bond project update
     
    In November 2013, Higley Unified School District voters approved a $70 million bond plan that included school improvements, land purchases and new facility construction.
     
    Preparation for school improvement projects took place over the last few months. During the last week of May - just after the release of students - crews started work at many of our campuses.

  • 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.

  • Parental Communication

    In an effort to help your child be more successful in class and as a part of our WFHS school community, I would like you to use the following parent tools:

    1) E-Alerts: Our school sends out automated email alerts for various school functions like dances, athletics, testing dates, yearbook sales, etc., but you must be on the list to receive them. To register go to husd.org > click on the silver “parents” link under the orange bar under the photos. Click on the E-Alert link > fill out the form.

    2) ParentVUE: Our schools use a software program called Synergy (Genesis), which compiles student grades, attendance, transcripts, and contact information. Teachers may include digital documents, classroom assignments, points and percentages, and individual feedback and comments. To register you need to get an “Activation Key” from the Front Office (480) 279.8000

    3) Teacher Pages: All teachers in our district have their own teacher website. These pages will include digital versions of important documents for the class. To view a teacher’s webpage, select “Teacher Pages” located on the top toolbar > select the teacher’s name which you would like to view their webpage. You will find their contact information as well as links to any electronic assignments in the left hand toolbar on their page.

    All of these options are wonderful tools provided by the school and the district. Please utilize these methods of communication as to ensure your child's success through the 2013-2014 school year.

  • Student Delivery and Drop Off

     
    High School Parents,

    I am writing today to share with you a change in our practice at the high school regarding deliveries to students.

    Deliveries will no longer be accepted for any items.  In order to ensure a safe and sanitary environment that supports and maintains the health and welfare of all of our students, they are expected to come prepared for the school day.  Our offices are not equipped with the necessary equipment and staffing to maintain the amount of delieveries that were recieved daily during previous years.  In the past, many items were not picked up by the students which left the administrative office responsible for these items.  It is equally difficult to accommodate deliveries with all the other activity that takes place in the administrative office.

    As a reminder, our high school is a closed campus.  Please visit with your student about what that means in terms of not being able to leave the school, unless checked out by a parent or guardian, during their school day.  Once a student arrives on campus, they are required to stay on campus until their school day comes to a close.

    As we look to enhance options for students, we will begin exploring ways that student dining needs can be addressed to expand variety and choice.

    I thank you in advance for supporting this significant change in the front office where we strive to improve our service to you, our students, and guests to the campus.

    Respectfully,

     

    Terri Wattawa

    Principal
