TUHSD Safe Return to Schools Plan

Return to School Date

The TUHSD safe return to schools start date is August 4, 2020. Please visit this page often for up to date information.

At our governing board meeting on July 28, the Tolleson Union High School District Governing Board voted to delay in-person student learning through the first quarter of the school year, which is October 9 on our school calendar. This means that online learning will begin on the first day of school for all TUHSD students, August 4, and continue until October 9. The governing board made this decision with the well-being and health of our students and staff members in mind and in response to Governor Ducey’s Executive Order 2020-51 issued on July 23, 2020.
