Dear Higley High School Parents, Families, and Students,

Open enrollment: 2019/2020
Families that wish to open enroll in any Higley Unified School District campus for the 2019/2020 school year may submit an open enrollment packet to the school of their choice. If a student resides out of the boundaries of a school, or out of the boundaries of the school district, an open enrollment application must be completed. Applications for open enrollment are accepted year round. If applying for the following school year, the school will notify the parent/guardian of a decision by May 1. The parent must confirm the acceptance of the open enrollment opportunity within five (5) working days.
Information and packets can be found on the website – www.husd.org/enrollment.
Higley Unified School District Parent Presentations
Higley Unified School District will host several parent presentations surrounding the topic of mental health over the next few months. Three of the presentations will be held 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., at the Higley Unified School District Office, 2935 S. Recker Road, Gilbert.
Dr. Cheryl Smith, PsyD, LPC will run these events and be available to speak with individuals for 30 minutes following each session. The Dec. 4 event will be run by Community Bridges at Williams Field High School.

May 1: Parent Presentation: "When kids are mad or sad, Not Bad."
Higley Unified School District launched an App this spring as a tool for communication with Higley families. The new system will allow schools to send e-mails, as well as push notifications for those who download the app. In order to receive e-mail communication, families must have a current, up-to-date e-mail address on file with their schools. Families that do not have an updated e-mail with the schools may not receive all the communication being sent.
If you have changed your e-mail in the last few months, created a new e-mail or have not provided an e-mail to your school, please do so as quickly as possible. If your child is rolling up to a new school, your current information will transfer with your child.
If you have not downloaded the App, we encourage you to do so. It can be found in your favorite App store.
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.
