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.

Attention current seniors…
On Tuesday, September 27th all seniors will take a free ACT during the academic school day on the WFHS campus. This is a standard ACT that can be used for college admission and NCAA eligibility purposes. We will operate under a “late start” schedule that day for freshmen, sophomores, and juniors and that specific schedule will be posted at a later date. Please join us in reinforcing how important it is for students to take these standardized tests seriously and put forth their best effort, as these tests yield valuable information for the students and their families and provide us with valuable information as to how to continue to better prepare our students as they prepare for higher education.
Please direct any questions to Dr. Jennifer Murphy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
