Please be advised we are closing all schools and the Family Center to allow all staff to participate in the Highline Equity Symposium.
It is almost time for school to start! Here are nine things to do as you get ready for the first day of school.
Children turning 5 years old on or before August 31 can start kindergarten in the 2019-20 school year. Register your incoming kindergartener to have access to free kindergarten readiness programs and materials.
King County named this year’s Green Schools, and five of our schools made the list. Congratulations to North Hill Elementary School, Shorewood Elementary School, Waskowitz Outdoor School, McMicken Heights Elementary School and Sylvester Middle School.
ECEAP is free for eligible families and children that have turned 3 or 4 by August 31.
The Shorewood office is closed. We will reopen on Monday, August 13.
Highline children can eat free breakfast, lunch, and snacks during the summer through the federally funded Simplified Summer Food Program. The program provides funding for several of our schools to serve children living in South King County.
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.
