    Update to Governor's Announcement/Mask Policy 

    Dear HUSD community,

    As you may have heard, this afternoon, Governor Ducey abruptly canceled the order that mandated all school districts and charter schools to require masks. The order rescinds previous state mask requirements, but it does not prohibit schools and districts from creating or maintaining individual policies or guidelines regarding face coverings.

    In accordance with Higley Unified School District’s Governing Board mitigation plan, at this time, we will continue to require students and employees to wear masks during the school day and when on District property until the Governing Board has had a chance to review the policy. Due to the short notice of today, it will not be an agenda item for this Wednesday’s Board meeting. However, because this is such an important topic, we will be adding a meeting to evaluate this thoroughly and determine the best option for our community.  

    Further information will be available in the coming days. All current mitigation strategies, including the use of masks, are still in place.

    Thank you for your continued support and patience.


    HUSD Leadership

    Re-Enrollment Information for 2021-2022 School Year

    The 2020-2021 school year is quickly coming to a close, and we have entered the planning phase for the 2021-2022 school year.

    As we work on solidifying staffing for our schools, making sure that course offerings for our secondary students meet student requests, and ensuring that specialized program offerings are available to all students who need them, we ask for your help in confirming attendance for your student(s) for the 2021-2022 school year.

    For the 2021-2022 school year, our online school, Higley Virtual Academy, will be open for enrollment for students that wish to attend 100% online. During re-enrollment, if this is the option you would like for your student, you will change the school selection from their currently registered school to Higley Virtual Academy. For Higley High School and Williams Field High School students that will be taking classes concurrently at HVA, they should re-enroll in their current high school.

    We ask that parents of current Kindergarten – 11th Grade students complete the online re-enrollment process in ParentVUE - by Friday, April 30th, 2021. If your student is not returning to Higley Unified School District for the 2021-2022 school year, you can indicate your intent to leave in the Online Enrollment system.

    For more information on the online re-enrollment process, including a detailed step-by-step guide, please visit

    April 7, 2021 – Mask Breaks and Reminders

    We want to remind families that all students, employees, contractors and visitors at Higley Unified School District are required to wear masks on campus and at school-associated activities. Executive Order 2020-51 and the emergency order from Arizona Department of Health Services AZDHS Emergency Measure 2020-04 requires all school districts to have and enforce a face-covering policy. These protective measures set by the State Department are in an effort to help reduce the transmission of COVID-19 within our community. We recognize that as we get closer to summer, temperatures in Arizona will continue to increase. We understand that with rising temperatures, it can be uncomfortable to wear a mask. To help ensure our students are comfortable and staying safe, we will continue to allow extended mask breaks outside at recess, with proper social distancing. Breaks will be taken under the guidance of your student’s teacher.
