We are planning for a return to in-person instruction based on updated guidance from the Washington State Department of Health (DOH).
Our plan is to bring pre-K through grade 5 students back for hybrid instruction (part-time in classrooms, part-time in distance learning) starting on March 1.
Public health authorities are not recommending a return to in-person instruction for middle and high school students at this time.
Families who wish to continue in Distance Learning my opt to do so.
Find information about the distance learning instructional plan and learning plans for elementary and secondary.
We have compiled a list of community resources for families including support for rent, utilities, food, mental health, healthcare, technology and more.
As information develops, we are sharing the information with families through email, text and on our district website.
The Highline Schools Foundation accepts donations to help Highline families in need with internet access, groceries, basic school supplies and more.
