Please have your school supplies on the first day of school.
Check out when we are open and closed this summer.
Keep your children healthy and safe by making sure they are up to date on vaccines. Attend a free immunization clinic on Tuesday, August 13. All Highline families are welcome.

The Board of Directors will hold a public budget hearing on Wednesday, June 19 from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m.
With the close of the legislative session, we now have a clearer budget picture for 2019-20. State lawmakers made some modifications to the McCleary funding plan that help us. However, enrollment is still declining, and that means a decline in state funding.
Our strategic plan names ambitious academic goals, including a goal for at least 19 out of 20 students to graduate prepared to choose their future. Why aim so high? Because our students are worth it, and they are capable of it.
On Wednesday, May 15 the Highline School Board approved the adoption of new social studies and math curricula. Students will begin using the new instructional materials in fall 2019.
Due to snow days, the schedule for the last week of school has changed.
To give families what they need to support their children, Highline will launch a new mobile app and online family portal in fall 2019. Highline’s current mobile app will discontinue on June 30.
Thank you to all who participated in this conversation. We invite everyone to explore the priorities and ideas provided about our upcoming high school schedule change.
We invite staff, students and community members to submit proposals to present sessions at our 2019 Equity Symposium.
We want all students to graduate bilingual and biliterate. What does that mean? And why is it important? Mastering more than one language is a tremendous advantage in today’s world.
The Superintendent's Family Action Committee (FAC) has been active for 6 years and is highly regarded as a committee that brings the parent/family voice to a variety of district strategies and practices.
Technology plays a huge role in the lives of our students–and we believe students should have equitable opportunities to access technology. But our job as educators goes way beyond making sure students master the hardware and software of today's technology.
More locks are coming soon. Voters funded the 2016 school bond, which set aside money for improved security, including safer interior and exterior door locks. Here is an updated timeline and list of schools.
Curious counselors and teachers from Highline High School checked out the Olympic Interim site in February. The renovation is almost done. Here are photos so you can preview. Watch for an Open House announcement!
We want students to receive all scheduled time for instruction, so we will not apply for a waiver for the February snow days.
Our community-led Capital Facilities Advisory Committee (CFAC) met on February 27. They reviewed photos of the aging buildings they toured and started looking at baseline costs for replacing the three schools that will begin the design process this year.
Highline Public Schools will adopt new materials for social studies and math--and we want your input! New instructional materials will be selected for kindergarten-8th grade math and 6th-11th grade social studies. You’re invited to drop by an open house to learn more about the instructional materials under consideration.
All 11th-grade students will participate in FutureU on Wednesday, March 27 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:20 p.m. at Green River College.
