Kids Club Registration 19/20 School Year Now Open
Families planning to use the 19/20 HUSD Kids Club before- and after-school program can now register. Remember: All students must have NEW emergency card and registration forms complete for the new school year. Students participating in 2019 Kids Club summer camp are using the 19/20 registration/emergency cards and will not need to complete those again, but will need to sign up for their Kids Club school year program.
All families must pay the $50 school-year Kids Club registration fee per child.
Kids Club is excited to welcome all families to the 2019 - 2020 school year. We provide before and after school care programs and Kids Club Camps during school breaks to enhance the learning that takes place during the school day for students in preschool through sixth grade.
Kids Club is available at our two Early Childhood Development Centers and at all our elementary schools from 6:00 a.m. until school begins and directly after school until 6:00 p.m.
For more information on Kids Club rates and how to register/schedule please visit our Kids Club page.
If you have any questions, please contact Community Education office at 480.279.7055 or firstname.lastname@example.org
All HUSD families should sign up for a ParentVue account. This allows parents to view student grades and absences, as well as see – when they are posted – class schedules and teacher information. The district also uses ParentVue during class selection times at the middle schools and high schools.
Sign up requires an IN PERSON visit to the school office. If you already have a ParentVue account, and your child is moving from one HUSD school to another, no action is required. The updated information will appear when it is available.
If you have questions, please contact your school's office.
