Principal's Message

DEAR NOGALES UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT COMMUNITY :

AT THIS TIME THE NOGALES UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT #1 DOES NOT HAVE A DETERMINED TIME/DATE FOR HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION CEREMONIES. 

NOGALES UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT #1 HAS NOT MADE A FINAL DECISION AND IS BEING MINDFUL OF THE HEALTH SCARE CRISIS BEING EXPERIENCED AT THIS TIME.
ALL SAFETY, SECURITY AND HEALTH GUIDELINES WILL CONTINUE TO BE FOLLOWED REGARDING SOCIAL DISTANCING AND LARGE GROUP GATHERINGS.  
WE WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR, ADJUST AND EVALUATE THIS SITUATION ON A DAY BY DAY BASIS. 

NUSD#1 IS BEING MINDFUL THAT THIS VERY IMPORTANT DECISION WILL BE MADE TAKING ALL THE SAFETY GUIDELINES/ FACTORS INTO CONSIDERATION AS WELL AS GETTING INPUT/RECOMMENDATIONS FROM OUR SENIOR STUDENTS, PARENTS, TEACHERS, SCHOOL PRINCIPALS, GOVERNING BOARD AND OUR ENTIRE SCHOOL COMMUNITY.  

IT WOULD BE IRRESPONSIBLE IN OUR PART TO MAKE SUCH A DETERMINATION OR SET A DATE/TIME AT THIS TIME. 

WE APPRECIATE YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND SUPPORT IN THE BEST INTEREST, SAFETY, SECURITY AND HEALTH OF OUR STUDENTS AND ENTIRE NUSD#1 COMMUNITY.

BE SAFE AND FOLLOW ALL THE SAFETY/HEALTH GUIDELINES!

SUPERINTENDENT PARRA

Dear NUSD Students ; Apaches, Wolves, Eagles, Diamondbacks, NUSD on Line, Hawks, Dolphins, Road Runners, Conquistadores, Challenger Rockets  and Lions:


I understand how difficult this is for you as students going through this National Pandemic that is impacting not only our Community, but our City, County, State, Country and World as well. This is beyond unprecedented, due to the uncertainty of how this virus is continuing to spread, and breaking every "Norm" and way of life as we have known it. Just know that everyone is going through this difficult situation and we will get through it together.


But at this time as a community our number one concern and priority is the safety, security and health of our students, families, and our teachers/employees. It is very difficult to understand that from one day to another our lives have completely changed and come to a stop. More difficult is not knowing how long this will continue or if the health of our families is or will be affected by this health scare.


For now, we need to be patient and understand that this situation is out of our control. We hope that in the near future we will be able to get back to our way of life. 


The intention of our schools and teachers is to continue to provide distance learning opportunities for all of our students. You should have already received your student lessons if you are doing your assignments/activities on line/remotely or through learning packets. Your schools will continue to communicate with you regarding distance learning opportunities and other teaching and learning resources that will be provided. This will not be a perfect situation, but please know that we will be doing our very best in providing these distance learning opportunities as we continue to monitor and adjust. Later on we will also be informing you and your parents about other school accountability measures regarding grades or any other school related matters. For now, please do your very best working on your distance learning lessons. 


To our senior students we understand how very difficult this situation is for all of you. You are all deserving of being able to close out your senior year. It is very difficult for us as your teachers and educators having to experience this situation along with you, and your family. As a parent myself, it is an extremely difficult process to understand and have to go through. But as I mentioned, this situation is out of our control. Together as a community we will stand strong and deal with this crisis. 


At a later time we will also be reaching out to you and your parents regarding receiving your graduation diplomas, credits, grades and all other specific procedures for you to successfully conclude your senior year. Please know that all considerations and flexibility will be implemented during this difficult time.


Even though we do not know what the future will hold, together with your principals and teachers we will be trying to find other means of providing a graduation ceremony if possible. 


During difficult times such as these, it is important to appreciate your family, practice social distancing, stay home and follow all the safety guidelines to keep yourselves and all your loved ones safe and healthy.


We miss you, we appreciate you, and we hope you are healthy and safe throughout this National health crisis. 


Respectfully, 

Your Superintendent 
Mr. Parra

At PHS students have opportunities to explore their potential and achieve high levels of academic success. Throughout the use of flexible scheduling and a rigorous on-line curriculum, PHS students have the ability to progress with their academic goals at a differentiated pace. Edgenuity is a top-rated online curriculum, which has yielded great success for our students. With the addition of this outstanding on-line curriculum students have access to a wide array of resources, however, we continue to have a qualified teacher in every classroom. PHS is fully staffed with qualified teachers in every content, providing students with the highest quality education.
Moreover, PHS offers students the opportunity to attain a High School diploma in a small school setting, with a warm welcoming family environment. Our historic campus which offers the community beautiful fields and courts also offers students a variety of clubs and extracurricular activities.
