Message from Our Superintendent

Dear TUHSD Community,

That chill in the air means that we are getting closer and closer to the holiday season and the end of the first semester. Our united focus is on student academic achievement. Our teachers are teaching bell-to-bell every day to ensure students are learning and prepared for finals later this month.

The governing board approved boundary changes on November 13, 2018. Boundary changes were necessary to establish the West Point High School community, address overcrowded schools, create opportunities for growth, and make efficient use of resources. The boundary changes had an affect on the boundaries of our other high schools, with the exception of Sierra Linda. To see the new school boundaries, please go to the boundary map under the parent quick links on our Home page.

Please note that all incoming freshmen will need to register for the 2019–2020 school year. As part 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. 

Students 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. Open enrollment forms are available on the website or in any school office. Although we prefer to receive open enrollment forms by December 21, 2018, we will accept them 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 at (623) 478.4023 for English only.

And now, a check on what our students have been up to. Recently, over a hundred students from Tolleson Union High School participated in the city of Tolleson’s annual “Tolleson Pride Day.” Students helped clean up the neighborhoods as well as providing lawn care, painting houses for the elderly, and other special projects to help keep Tolleson beautiful. Way to go students!

At our last board meeting, director of alternative education for CEA/Lighthouse Academy, Travis Johnson, honored his students and staff members of the year. LaNeasa Spivey (classfied employee of the year), Areli Parra (certified employee of the year), Esmeralda Cubas (female student of the year), and Jesse Galvan (male student of the year) were all honored with a very deserving award. Congratulations, students and staff!

Winter break will be December 24 through January 4 with all schools and district offices closed. Classes will resume on Monday, January 7. We hope that staff and students will take this time to reflect, relax, and enjoy time with their family and friends. Once the busy holiday season is over, it will be time to start second semester. 

    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!
