Student in School

Starting in September 2021, we plan to reopen schools for in-person instruction for students in Pre-K through grade 12. Families who are unable to send their children to school in person due to family health concerns may select a remote learning program for the 2021-22 school year. Please take a moment to fill out the 2021-22 learning selection form to commit to in-person or fully remote learning for the 2021-22 school year.

Seeking Student Voice

We want to hear and learn from students. Does your student have something to share about their experience as a student in Highline? We are seeking students to share their experiences at the 2021 Highline Equity Symposium on Tuesday, August 24.

Next fall, we plan to reopen schools for in-person instruction five full days a week for students in Pre-K through grade 12, as long as public health authorities continue to support in-person learning. 

As recommended by the CDC and Washington State Department of Health, we will require three-foot distancing, face masks and other safety measures. Families will be able to choose a remote option.

Happy School Nurse Day

This week we’re celebrating our school nurses! This year especially we want to shout from the rooftop: THANK YOU! School nurses serve our students in managing complex conditions, identifying mental health issues, leveling the field with regard to health disparities, and now, testing, tracking cases and vaccinating staff.

State Superintendent Chris Reykdal announced this week that students will not take state standardized tests this spring. Instead, the Smarter Balanced Assessment (SBA) and Washington Comprehensive Assessment of Science will be scheduled in Fall 2021.

The fall testing schedule meets the federal requirement for state testing without committing valuable learning time this spring to test-taking.

Welcome Back ALL Grades!

We're pinching ourselves—it feels like a dream to have all grades back on school grounds! Today, we welcomed back more students in grades 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12. It is our biggest first day yet and our second-to-last first day for the 2021-22 school year. We welcome back the rest of our secondary in-person students on Thursday. Most middle and high school students attend in two groups, either Monday/Tuesday or Thursday/Friday. Some students who receive special education services attend four days a week.
