COVID-19 Resources


  • Oct. 9, 2020

    Dear HUSD Community,

    We hope that you and your family are enjoying your fall break. Our greatest priority is the health and safety of our HUSD community. The district health and safety protocols are vital to ensuring that our schools can remain open and that we all do our part to stay healthy. 

    Our District team has been diligently working to improve ongoing communication with our HUSD community. We are excited to announce a new communication tool, the HUSD COVID-19 Dashboard. This detailed status report is designed to communicate the most current district information available regarding active and resolved COVID-19 cases. The HUSD COVID-19 Dashboard will be on our website and will be updated Monday-Friday by 10:00am (excluding holidays).  This tool is in addition to our already existing notification communication protocols when there is a positive case within the District. 

    Dashboard Details

    The purpose of HUSD COVID-19 Dashboard is to provide Higley Unified School District families and employees with current data and a summary of COVID-19 cases by school.  An active case indicates that a student or employee participating in on-campus activities has tested positive for an active COVID-19 infection. Individuals who test positive are excluded from participation in any on-campus activity until the district nurse verifies that the individual meets the return criteria set by state and local health authorities. Once the individual is cleared to return and are no longer considered an active case, it is then transferred to the resolved cases column.  Here is a link to the FAQs on our HUSD COVID-19 Dashboard.   

    Communication Protocols

    If there are individuals who have had primary contact with the person who has been confirmed with a positive case of COVID-19, they will be notified by phone from the Maricopa County Department of Public Health and an HUSD employee. They will also receive written communication from HUSD which may include a 14 day quarantine order as per Maricopa County Department of Public Health. Those with secondary contact will receive an email from the school stating that there was a positive case on campus. Elementary notification will be sent by grade level and middle or high school notification will be determined by common class schedule.  Together we can keep each other safe. You can help by doing your part.

    Stay Informed: In order for HUSD to effectively communicate in regards to COVID-19 cases and all current events at our HUSD campuses, we rely on parents to partner with us. Please make sure you have provided your best contact information to properly receive the information from our schools. Here is a link for more information on how to ensure you are receiving email communication.  

    Stay Healthy: We need your help; it is vital to the health and safety of our community that individuals stay home if they have:

    We also invite you to visit our website for more information about how we can work together to stay healthy.  We want to thank you for your support, cooperation and partnership with us as we plan to safely return to school on October 12th.
