Highline Wellness

It is so important to take care of ourselves during this time. When we are our best selves, we can bring our best for our students and families.  

Beginning Monday, April 20 and continuing each week through June, all Highline staff will receive an email highlighting three practices for health and wellbeing: a breathing technique, a movement exercise and a guided rest protocol.  Share what you are learning and practicing on social media using #HPSWellness.  

Every Friday in Highline Insider, our SEL Department will summarize the week’s strategies and make connections to existing SEL work.

You can also check back here anytime to see the information from previous weeks.

The SEL skills of adults and students, and the school culture and climate in which they are developed, have immense impacts on learning, wellness and safety. The guiding principles of SEL, grounded in the whole child movement, were adopted into standards by OSPI in 2019.

When our social, emotional, economic, safety and basic needs are impacted by the events of the world, it can be incredibly challenging to meet our goals, stay focused and be healthy. As we have highlighted in our #HPSWellness campaign, it is essential that we continue to invest in learning, practicing and sharing our wellness practices with our own families and communities.
