Mr. Ewing brings more than 30 years of educational experience with him and is a compassionate and caring leader. He will work well with the current administrative team at Williams Field and with the central office administrators to keep Williams Field moving forward in a positive direction.
Food services Information
Did you know that every Higley student receives a cafeteria account upon enrollment? HUSD has chosen MealTime Online to provide the opportunity for you to make credit card deposits into your student’s cafeteria account or view your student’s purchase history via the internet.
Would you like to link your student's meal accounts so they all draw from one fund? Any money deposited to a linked account can be used by all of the accounts linked to it, which means you only have to maintain one balance instead of several. Click here to link your children's meal accounts.
Having 2 weeks off for fall break is great!
It gives students time to work on college applications and scholarships. Be sure to create a profile to access scholarship search engines:
https://www.scholarships.com/ and www.HighFiveScholarships.com
are two great websites to begin your search. All grade levels can work on scholarships

FAFSA- free application
If you are the parent of a senior, there are changes for the upcoming FAFSA, Free Application for Financial Student Aid, for 2016-2017.
You will be able to apply for financial aid this October instead of waiting for January. In order to sign the online form, you AND your student(s) must create an electronic signature known as FSA ID Number. It only takes a few minutes to do this and will save time later. Visit: Create a FAFSA ID
The College Board is hosting a monthly webinar series to help parents support their children on the journey to college. Topics include preparing for the SAT, learning about AP courses, and applying for financial aid, and more. Please visit Collegeboard.org to register for these free academic resources.
Please contact Dr. Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions regarding the AP or Dual Enrollment programs at Williams Field High School.
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.
