Message from our Superintendent

Dear TUHSD Community,

Like proud parents, our school principals and teachers have sent another class of talented seniors out into the real world to do good things. I am so proud of our graduating seniors. They have all worked hard and earned the right to walk at their graduation ceremonies. The scholarship amounts received this year exceeded previous years with a total of $33.3 million! Whether heading off to college, a trade, the military, or another option, I feel confident that TUHSD has done our best to provide them with the skills and knowledge they need to be successful in life. Congratulations to our graduates and a heartfelt thank you to our teachers that supported them to get to this point. We wish them all the best of luck and know that they will represent the Tolleson Union High School District well. 

For our continuing students, I want to remind you that Summer Academy, with free transportation, free breakfast, and free lunch daily, is enrolling now. Session #2 (semester II courses only) will take place June 15 through June 30 at Sierra Linda High School from 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. We are proud to report that over 1,000 students registered for session 1, May 30 through June 14.

A reminder that our summer food program is free to all individuals under the age of 18 at Sierra Linda High School. We will serve breakfast between 7:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. and lunch between 11:05 a.m. and 12:05 p.m. Text “food” or “comida” to 877-877 for more information.

We are currently enrolling students for the 2017-2018 school year. Open enrollment (variances) are available at all school sites to ensure your student can attend your school of choice. Whether you are a returning student, an incoming student from our partner districts, or you just moved to this area from somewhere else, be sure you enroll for the upcoming school year by contacting your local TUHSD school directly or by calling (623) 478.4000 for more information on where to go to enroll. 

Over the summer, we will be busy preparing for the 2017-2018 school year. We will continue teaching with increased rigor using an interactive curriculum that is aligned to the standards. Students will be using state-of-the-art technology in the classrooms. Our exceptional teachers will be ready to greet your students and begin the school year hitting the ground running. We are looking forward to another great year of learning and academic achievement at TUHSD!

If you want to stay informed on everything that is happening in our district or at any of the high schools, connect with us on social media. Follow us on Facebook or on Twitter.

Thank you for your continued support.

TUHSD Do It With Pride!

Sincerely,

Nora Gutierrez
