Message from Our Superintendent

Dear TUHSD Community,

Happy New Year and welcome to 2019. I sincerely hope that you all have had a restful and enjoyable holiday season. We are ready to get back to work with classes resuming on Monday, January 7. We will hit the ground running with a focus on student academic achievement. Every moment in the classroom is important, and we work hard to teach bell-to-bell with rigorous and meaningful lessons for every student every day.

Registration for our incoming freshmen continues. We look forward to seeing them at all of our schools come August. As a reminder of the registration process, all incoming freshmen will automatically register for their home school per the approved boundaries. Please note that we will provide transportation for incoming freshmen students who qualify and attend the school within their boundary. 

Incoming freshmen may elect to stay at their home school or attend another TUHSD school outside of their boundary by applying through our district’s open enrollment process. We will not be providing transportation to open enrollment students attending a TUHSD school outside their home school boundary. Open enrollment forms are available on the website or any school office. We are accepting open enrollment forms through March 1, 2019. You can turn in forms to the district office or your preferred school. For questions, you can contact Dalia Ontiveros for English or Spanish at (623) 478.4013 or Traci Waling for English only at (623) 478.4023. To see the new school boundaries, please go to the boundary map under the parent quick links on our Home page

Also, I am honored to announce that Mrs. Brandi Haskins, former La Joya Community High School Principal, will become the new principal at West Point High School. Principal Haskins has done an outstanding job leading La Joya for many years, and she will now take her talents and leadership skills to West Point. We are fortunate to have Mrs. Haskins at the helm as we embark on West Point’s inaugural year in our district. Congratulations, Mrs. Haskins!

In case you haven’t seen them yet, we have some nice drone photos of the new high school on our social media pages. Throughout the building process, we will be posting additional drone photos to Facebook and Twitter as the school gets closer and closer to completion.

I would like to congratulate and recognize Governing Board Member Mr. Steven Chapman for his election as the Arizona School Boards Association (ASBA) President-Elect for 2019. We commend his dedication to our district and public education, and we wish him much success in this additional new position.

    As always, remember to check our website for important upcoming events. To learn more about our district, follow us on Facebook or on Twitter. 

    TUHSD Do It With Pride!

    Sincerely,

    Nora Gutierrez
