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. The Tolleson Union High School District's philosophy during the COVID-19 Coronavirus crisis is one where no student or staff member shall be harmed from this, socially, emotionally, or otherwise. We will seek direction from Arizona Governor Doug Ducey's office, the State Department of Education, and the State Board of Education. We will continue to educate our students to the best of our ability during these trying times. As soon as we get updated information on the COVID-19 pandemic situation in our state, we will make appropriate decisions with respect to our students' matriculation.

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 effective Thursday, March 19 until further notice. As you can imagine, it is challenging converting from in-person instruction to online. Rest assured that we are sensitive to all of these issues.

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 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.


  • 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.

Meal Service During School Closures
During these school closures, our goal is to continue to serve our students' needs. As of Wednesday, March 25, Tolleson Union High School District students were able to receive a meal pack at the high school where they are currently enrolled. Our Food and Nutrition Department served 1,512 students with meal packs on the first day of distribution. That equates to 9,072 grab and go meals served, with each pack containing three breakfasts and three lunches plus snacks. It's just another way that we can care and comfort our students during this time of uncertainty.

Please note that beginning Monday, March 30, Tolleson Union High School District students can receive a five-day meal pack for the week. Monday meal packs will include breakfast and lunch for five days for Tolleson Union High School District students. Meals will be distributed from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. each Monday. Tolleson Union High School District students must be present in order to receive the five-day meal pack.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding during the school closures. Please know that TUHSD cares and that we wish you continued good health during this crisis. Take care and stay safe!
