Classes to Begin July 27 Remotely
Higley Unified School District will start the 2020-2021 school year following our current calendar on July 27, 2020. This decision allows us to maintain our fall, winter, and spring breaks as scheduled. We know that many families plan on these times and we want to be as consistent as possible and not change our previously approved calendar.
Governor Ducey’s Executive Order will not allow in-person learning until at least August 17, and it is very possible that this date may be extended This will require that our instruction for all students will begin remotely on July 27.
