    School Closure Update
     
    Dear Higley Families:
     
    As you may have heard today, the Governor and the Arizona Department of Education announced that the school closure would extend through the remainder of the school year.  While this is called a "school closure" we are by no means "closed". We are providing remote learning opportunities so that all students can successfully complete their school year. 
     
    Today remote learning began, and I am so proud of the work put forth by our teachers as they start teaching remotely. They have put in countless hours over the last few days to create meaningful opportunities for students in a different format. I want to give a heartfelt THANK YOU to all of them as they will continue to work very hard to embrace this new challenge. It is important to know that this will be a transition for all of us as we work together to create new ways to optimize instruction for students and families alike.
     
    Please visit our remote learning support webpage for general support information and resources that we will continue to add to over the next several weeks. 
     
    We understand there is a lot on your plate as a parent. Nothing is more important right now than the mental, emotional and physical health of you and yours. We know many of you are trying to juggle work-at-home, as well as remote learning activities for your children. We will all need to be flexible and continue to communicate with each other as needs and questions arise. Please reach out directly to your child’s teacher or principal with specific questions or concerns as we navigate this remote learning endeavor together. 
     
    We know there are questions you may have that we don’t have answers for at this time. Please know we will continue to keep you informed regarding specific end-of-the-year activities as we gain more information and official guidance. Thank you for your patience as we coordinate these details with forthcoming state guidance. We will share information as soon as we are able to do so. 
     
    Athletics Cancelled
     
    With the state's decision to close schools for the rest of the year, the Arizona Interscholastic Athletics Association announced the cancellation of the AIA spring season and championships.

  • Higley Schools Closed through March 27

    Dear HUSD Staff and Families,

    I want you to know that my team and I have been monitoring the COVID-19 developments and have been in daily communication over the past week. 

    On Sunday, March 15, the Governor and the Arizona Department of Education announced a statewide two-week school closure, beginning Monday, March 16 through Friday, March 27, 2020. We are following the directions of the State, and will continue to monitor our own situation to determine the best course of action for our District.

    Last week, HUSD took a proactive lead to have any staff who could work from home do so. This will continue through March 27, 2020.

    Rest assured that my team will continue to meet over these upcoming weeks to design plans to serve our students, staff, and community.

    While there may be recommendations beyond March 27, it is my commitment to you that we will make decisions that best serve our students, staff, and community.

    Please visit our COVID-19 website where there is valuable information on the disease and how to cope with and plan for this pandemic.

    We will post updates daily no later than 5:00 PM.

    Dr. Mike Thomason

  • ParentVUE Update

    ParentVue is the HUSD portal to student grades and attendance history. Higley’s 6th grade, middle school and high school parents use ParentVue for course request approvals for the upcoming school year.

    The Higley District is adding new features to the system. Beginning in January 2020, ParentVue can be used to submit new student registration forms and submit open enrollment forms. Families will use ParentVue in Spring 2020 to complete re-enrollment forms.

    Families that have not activated their ParentVue accounts, but have an e-mail on file with the district, will soon receive an e-mail from ParentVue inviting them to activate their ParentVue accounts. Directions will be provided in the email to access to this communication tool.
