Hello Preschool Families!
I hope this update finds you all doing well and staying healthy. We hope that we can open our preschools and offer in-person learning as soon as we can ensure that it is safe to do so. We are working hard to make this happen on August 17 but this decision will be based on adherence to our HUSD mitigation plans that are aligned to the Center for Disease Control recommendations, the forthcoming Arizona Department of Health Services benchmarks, guidance from county health officials, community needs and available resources.
Tuition was prorated for the delayed opening and will not be automatically charged on August 1st. We will wait for specific direction from our District and if we are cleared to open on the 17th, we will then make the tuition due date August 15th. If the preschool opening is delayed again after that date, we will credit each account the prorated amount from August.
Higley elementary, middle and high school students began school online July 27, along with our STARS and BEST Special Education preschool students. We have had parents inquiring about an online option for preschool since many students were able to continue last school year in a virtual setting. The reason it worked so beautifully in the spring was because of the strong relationships we had already built throughout the school year in our classrooms. We may consider virtual options if the opening is delayed for interested families.
We miss you all so much and we are hopeful that we will see you soon!
I wish you well!
