  • 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.

  • Emergency Contact Information

    As a reminder, emergency contacts are designated adults that are able to pick up your student when they need to leave school due to a medical emergency. The school cannot release a student to an emergency contact for other reasons such as to go to lunch, appointments, etc.  To release a student during the school day to someone other than a parent/guardian, the school needs parent permission ahead of time.  Thank you!

  • CMS Front Office Procedure 

    In order to minimize the disruptions to instruction, we are restricting deliveries to students to items that are essential to the educational process. Therefore, classes will not be interrupted for delivery of items.

    If it is absolutely necessary to drop off an item for your student, it will be stored in the front office storage area.  Your student can come and get their item between classes or during lunch.  Please note that we are not responsible for dropped off items.

    Flowers, birthday items, pizza, etc. will not be accepted from businesses for delivery. Restaurant deliveries are also not allowed including Door Dash, Uber, etc.

    The front office will NOT be responsible for delivering items to students.

    Please also note that we do our best to deliver phone messages.  Messages are delivered the last 5 minutes of a class period in order to not interrupt instructional time.

    Thank you for your understanding!
