Community Lecture Thursday: “One Pill Can Kill”
Join us Thursday, October 13, for a parent informational session discussing the dangers our children and community face with the opioid epidemic.
This free community lecture, “One Pill Can Kill,” will specifically look at the dangers of Fentanyl, a synthetic opioid that is approved for treating severe pain. Hear from community experts as we discuss the newest threats to our children and learn more about counterfeit pills laced with fentanyl, the Good Samaritan Law and the lifesaving medication called Naloxone.
The session will take place on Thursday, October 13, from 6:30pm to 7:30pm in the Governing Board Room at Higley Unified School District: 2935 South Recker Road Gilbert, Arizona 85295.
Wishing You a Happy Fall Break!
Dear HUSD Community,
With Fall Break approaching, we would like to express our appreciation to all of our students and families for your continued support throughout this semester.
As a reminder, our schools will be closed from September 26 to October 7, with students returning to class on October 10. If you need assistance, the District Office will be operating on Fall Break hours, Monday through Thursday, from 8am to 4pm. Please call us at 480-279-7000.
Additionally, our District is hosting an upcoming bond roadshow for community members to learn more factual information about the 2022 proposed bond, which our Higley community will vote on this November. The roadshow will take place on October 19 at 5pm in the District Office Board Room. For more information about the proposed bond, please click here.
Enjoy your Fall Break! We look forward to seeing our students back in the classroom on October 10.
HUSD Meal Application Form
We would like to remind families of the importance of submitting a meal application form for the 2022-2023 school year.
This year, the federal government ended free meals for all students. With this change, we encourage families to complete an application to determine eligibility for free and reduced meals.
Please know that these applications are used for more than determining eligibility for free and reduced-price meals, but also for deciding education funding for our school and district. The application is confidential and only takes a few minutes to complete. If you have any questions, please contact the school’s front office.
Enrollment for the 2022-2023 School Year
We are now accepting new enrollment applications online for the 2022-2023 school year.
For more information on the enrollment process visit our Enrollment Information Page.
Current open enrollment status can be found by grade level on our Schools Directory Page.
Tax Credit Donation Reminder
We would like to remind families who are interested in making a tax credit donation this season, that this can be made for any one of our schools through our HUSD website.
An individual may claim a nonrefundable tax credit for making cash contributions or for certain fees paid to a public school located in Arizona.
To qualify for the credit, an individual must make contributions for qualifying expenditures per A.R.S. § 43-1089.01. The credit is equal to the amount of fees paid or cash contributions, not to exceed $400 for married filing joint filers and $200 for all other filing statuses. For more information, please visit Arizona Department of Revenue.
We appreciate your support!
