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.

Teaching Through a Pandemic

The past 14 months have been extremely challenging for educators across the country. In Highline, our teachers showed incredible innovation and perseverance as they transitioned to distance learning and then hybrid learning, finding new ways to engage students and families.

National Teacher Appreciation Week is May 3-7 this year. After more than a year of pandemic teaching and learning, our families and staff appreciate teachers like never before. Read the Gold Star nominations for teachers and meet the nominees.

The SmileMobile Dental Clinic will be at Evergreen High School and the Olympic Interim Site from May 11-13 and May 18-20. Appointments are available for babies, children, teens and pregnant/postpartum individuals who are uninsured or who are with Apple Health. Schedule an appointment by calling 888.286.9105.

Student in School

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. 

Teacher in Classroom

Thank you to all who participated in our focus groups on standards-based grading. More teachers across Highline are using a standards-based approach to grading assignments and giving feedback. We hope to pilot a new standards-based report card soon.

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. 

Meal Kits

For spring break, April 12 through April 16, meal kits will be offered on Thursday, April 8 from 12:30-1:30 p.m. only. Pick up locations include Chinook and Glacier middle schools and Evergreen and Mount Rainier high schools.
