    The Algebra 1/Honors ELASS pathway is for students who are prepared for even more advanced courses to start 7th grade.  As these courses are the most challenging and rigorous, it is important to make sure that students demonstrate prior knowledge and ability to succeed with this curriculum.  A placement test will be used to determine if students are prepared for Algebra 1/Honors ELASS courses.  All interested students are invited to register to take the placement exams at Cooley Middle School on Saturday, February 25th starting at 9am. 

     

    Please click on the 23-24 Cooley Middle School ELASS and Algebra 1 Placement Test to register your child!

     

    Please know that students will not be placed in the Algebra1/Honors ELASS pathway without testing.

  • HUSD Takes Proactive Approach to Ensure Students Thrive Academically and Emotionally 

    To increase awareness of mental health challenges among young people, Higley Unified School District has implemented a Healthy Higley Wellness Initiative. This initiative is designed to provide community members in the Gilbert area with the resources needed to ensure students thrive academically and emotionally.

    As part of Higley Unified School District's updated strategic plan, maximizing each student's academic and social-emotional growth is of the utmost importance.

    HUSD has taken a proactive approach to ensure the District is providing resources to support the social-emotional growth of each student and the development of positive student behavior. To do so, HUSD has developed and implemented a K-12 comprehensive counseling program, with additional counselors available to all students. This increase in counselors includes the addition of one District led counselor to support the K-12 counselor group, three counselors to service all nine elementary schools, and a District behavior coach. This model enhances the ability for all students to fully utilize all the opportunities that are available to them related to emotional well-being.

    The District has also improved its process of training employees, families, and students on social-emotional growth. This year's focus is resiliency, which includes proactive and preventative ways to overcome obstacles and develop positive life skills.

    Additionally, the District is focusing on suicide awareness and drug prevention. One of the strategies the District is using to increase suicide awareness is through additional training for all school site employees. HUSD is currently developing and refining its process associated with Suicide Risk Management, which includes training K-12 employees with step-by-step guidelines to better help them observe concerning behavior and respond appropriately. Administrators have already received additional training on this process earlier this school year, but all K-12 employees will be trained with these additional steps starting in December 2022.

  • Reporting An Absence

    Did you know you are able to report an absence via ParentVUE?  It is very simple to do!  Log into ParentVUE, click on the blue Report Absence button next to your student's name, enter a start and end date (if just 1 day, the dates are the same), and select a reason.  You can leave a brief note in the Note box and you can upload doctors note if desired.   If you are able to report an absence prior to 10:00 a.m., you will not receive the auto-dialer phone call.  This is the preferred method, but as always, you can continue to call the attendance line - option 2 for attendance.

  • 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 Procedures

    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.

    Please note that parents/students are not allowed to order Door Dash, Grub Hub, etc.  Any orders that arrive to campus will be collected and held for pick up after school in the front office. 

    No liquids other than water are allowed into the building and will be discarded 

    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!
