Dangers of Snapchat: HUSD Community Lecture
Dear HUSD community,
On August 25, Higley Unified School District is hosting a community lecture to help parents and guardians better understand the dangers of Snapchat and precautionary measures that can help keep their child safe. Snapchat has become one of the most popular apps among the youth with fun features like filters, emojis, augmented reality, but experts have concerns about the safety of this app.
Join us as we discuss these concerns and steps that can be taken to better keep kids safe. The event will take place Thursday, August 25 from 6:30 – 7:30pm in the Governing Board Room at the District Office: 2935 S Recker Road Gilbert, AZ 85295.
Please note that this event is intended for parents, guardians and other caregivers.
This event is part of our Healthy Higley Wellness Initiative. HUSD is partnering with community agencies to provide parents with resources around the topics of drug prevention and internet safety.
Updated Migitgation Strategy
We will resume school following winter break on Monday, January 3, 2022. Beginning Tuesday, January 4, 2022, we will once again allow the following types of activities to resume at Gateway Pointe Elementary:
- All-school assemblies
- Volunteers on campus to work with students and assist teachers
- Parents will be allowed to come and eat lunch with their student(s)
- Field trips in alignment with district policies/procedures
While restricting recess before school is no longer a required district mitigation strategy, at Gateway Pointe our teachers and staff are using this time before school to work individually with students to provide extra academic support and homework help. Teachers are also utilizing this valuable time to provide enrichment opportunities. In addition, we have seen an unprecedented number of students taking advantage of the breakfast program.
We will continue to work closely with the Maricopa County Health Department and would like to remind everyone of the importance of staying home when you are not feeling well – which includes participating in activities mentioned above as a student, parent, or volunteer. Please stay home if you:
- are not well and are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms, or
- are awaiting COVID-19 test results, or
- have received a positive COVID-19 test result, or
- have someone in your household who has tested positive for COVID-19
Again, thank you for continuing to follow our exclusion guidelines when your child/children are not feeling well. As the year progresses, we will continue to monitor our practices given the health situation on our campus and within our community.
