Important Announcements - COVID-19

  • Tempe Union High School District's schools are closed to students beginning March 16, 2020 through the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year.

    This adheres to the announcement made on March 30 by Governor Ducey and State Superintendent Hoffman. All school activities (including SAT testing), athletics (practices, competitions, physicals), and events will be cancelled until further notice.

    At this time, we are monitoring the closure of our schools on a daily basis in conjunction with the appropriate state agencies to make the best determination for when school might resume. We urge our students and families to take this opportunity to practice social distancing, and other containment measures that are being advised by our public health agencies. We want to ensure that these school closures and the disruption of the learning process proves to be worth the effort.


    Class of 2020 Graduation

    After much discussion and consideration, Tempe Union High School District has decided on a dual approach to the Class of 2020 graduation. First, we will hold virtual ceremonies on the original graduation dates of Wednesday, May 20 for Compadre Academy and Thursday, May 21 for all six comprehensive schools as we would for any typical school year. Second, planning is underway for modified, in-person ceremonies to be held on Saturday, July 18. Additional information on both the virtual and modified in-person ceremonies will be released as it becomes available in the coming weeks. Read the full announcement in the Parent Letters section of this page.
