Susan Enfield "A Message from Superintendent Susan Enfield"

This week we announced our plans to bring elementary and more students with special needs back into school buildings, beginning March 1. Why now and why March 1? Superintendent Susan Enfield answers that question. 

Student in School

Do you know a child who will be five years old on or before August 31? Maybe it's your neighbor, family friend or even your own child. Help us spread the word: families can enroll their incoming kindergarten student starting February 1 for the 2021-22 school year.

Get information on how to nominate someone for a Gold Star Award from the Highline Schools Foundation, and how to register for free, virtual after-school art classes.

Family Webinars

Join us for one of our family information sessions on January 14 to learn details on elementary students returning to in-person learning. Both sessions will contain the same information.

High school students across Highline found connection and inspiration around a virtual campfire on a December weekend in 2020. It was a powerful and moving end of a not-so-normal fall at Camp Waskowitz. Starting Spring 2021, WELS has enrollment openings in its innovative, project-based program for students currently in grades 10-11. Ninth grade students also are invited to learn about WELS and to enroll for the 2021-22 school year.

To avoid crowding our clinics and hospitals with people experiencing COVID-like symptoms, public health officials are recommending that people get vaccinated for influenza as early as possible. Sign up today for a free flu vaccination clinic at Evergreen High School on Tuesday, December 29.

Seven Years of Rising Grad Rates

This fall, we announced our seventh straight year of rising graduation rates. The Class of 2020 graduated at 83.8 percent, the highest rate in recent Highline Public Schools history. This is especially notable since seniors spent their final three months of high school in distance learning.
