Next year's seventh-grade students now have an exciting opportunity to get to know their new middle school community before the first day of school. Highline is launching a new program called Middle School Bridge, designed to help students begin their middle school year experience successfully. It's scheduled for August 18 – 20
Highline children can eat free breakfast, lunch, and snacks during the summer through the federally funded Simplified Summer Food Program (SSFP). The program provides funding for 17 Highline schools to serve children living in South King County in partnership with six community organizations.
Highline families still have time to submit feedback on how our schools are doing. All families are encouraged to take a short online survey. Results will help us make changes to improve our schools and better support our students.
Students can get extra help when they need it on Activate Instruction. The online resource is available for free to all Highline students. Teachers across the country create, share, and organize learning resources on Activate Instruction, and students use it to learn at their own pace.
Highline has many budding authors, and our students are proving it during Highline Writes! Week of Writing Celebration. The week-long writing event across the district is recognizing students as authors in a variety of ways, including a writing contest.
Recently, Highline Public Schools refinanced bonds sold in 2007, resulting in a savings to taxpayers of more than $4.5 million over the next eleven years. The savings will lower the amount of money that will be collected from taxpayers to pay off previously issued bonds. We are pleased to be able to give these dollars back to the taxpayers.
