    Welcome Back, Higley!

    We hope that you had a relaxing summer break. We are so excited to welcome all of our students and families to this new academic year.

    We have spent the summer planning and preparing for our students to return to the classroom, and we are eagerly awaiting the first day of school, which is on Monday, July 26th.

    As we embark on this new school year, we have so many exciting projects ahead of us to expand student learning and success. Below are a few updates and reminders for this coming year:

    Mitigation Plan 

    We have updated our mitigation strategies to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 on our campuses. For a detailed mitigation plan and more information on COVID-19 resources, please visit our website.

    Strategic Plan & Portrait of a Graduate

    This year, we will be updating HUSD’s strategic plan and our portrait of a graduate by determining our District’s goals and priorities for the upcoming years. Additionally, we will focus on the social and emotional well-being of our students and employees.

    Updated Parent Contact Information

    To make sure that we can get in touch with you about on-campus events or emergencies, please log in to ParentVUE and go to “My Account” to ensure that we have your current email address and phone numbers.

    If one of the phone numbers is a cell phone, please indicate that as well, so we can send you a text message in the event of an emergency. If you do not have a ParentVUE account or need assistance accessing your account, please contact your student’s school so that we can assist you with this process.

    HUSD App

    Our HUSD app gives you personalized news and information about what is happening across our District and our schools. Please download the app today on Google Play or the App Store.

    Bond Election

    In November, registered voters living within Higley Unified School District boundaries will decide on a proposed $95 million dollar bond. This bond will allow the District to continue emphasizing technology, building safety, security, and providing funds for major maintenance and construction projects. Additionally, the proposed bond may enable the District to shift lease payments from the capital budget to bond, potentially saving the taxpayers an estimated $21.7 million. We encourage our community to learn more about this bond by visiting our website.

    Kids Club

    Don’t forget to register for Kids Club! The registration software for Community Ed has changed to a new and improved mobile-friendly software. Click here to register.

    Again, welcome back to school! Our HUSD team looks forward to working with your children and continuing the outstanding work within our school district. This is going to be a great school year!


    Dawn A. Foley, Ph.D.
