A Message from Superintendent Nora Gutierrez

Dear TUHSD Community,

On Monday, March 30, Arizona Governor Doug Ducey and Superintendent of Public Instruction Kathy Hoffman extended the closure of all Arizona schools for the remainder of the school year. This extension includes all schools in the Tolleson Union High School District. 

During the school closures, it is critical that Tolleson Union High School District students remain academically engaged. Therefore, we will be offering online instruction from all certified staff to all TUHSD students for the remainder of the school year. 

Online Learning
Both teachers and students will continue their classes by logging into Edgenuity or related course platforms for unique courses during their regularly scheduled classes in accordance with their school’s schedule.

Students:

  • Students follow their daily schedule by logging into their online classes at the exact same time they would report to each and every class during the closure. 
  • Students access Edgenuity from the district homepage using their username and password.
  • Students complete and upload work and access class progress in Edgenuity.
  • Students see their assignments and current course grades via StudentVUE.

Parents:

  • Check TUHSD website for updates during the school closure.
  • Provide feedback to staff as needed during the closure.
  • Check on student progress in Synergy using ParentVUE and support students in Edgenuity.

Update on Graduation
The Tolleson Union High School District is moving forward with a new date for graduation. The tentative date is Monday, June 29, 2020, at State Farm Stadium. The address is 1 Cardinals Drive, Glendale, Arizona 85305. 

We know that our seniors are deserving of a proper celebration as we send them off to the various new adventures that they will be embarking on, whether that be a college or university experience, the military, a trade school or as a contributing member of the workforce.
