Highline is offering new programs for incoming kindergarten students to help them be “ready for kindergarten” in the fall. These programs include Pre-K Play and Learn beginning in March and continuing through June, and Kindergarten Jump Start which will run the week of August 18th-August 22nd. Both of these programs are free to registered kindergarten students. We look forward to working with you as we partner to support your child’s education experience in Highline Public Schools.
Kindergarten Jump Start
will be held the week of August 18th for all registered kindergarten students. Students will attend in the morning at their new school. The sessions will begin at the school's designated start time (8:40 or 9:10am) and will be 3 hours in length, Monday though Friday. Breakfast will be served, and transportation is available for students who are registered in time to set up the bus route. Please see this flyer for more information, or contact your school's office (Jump Start (English and Spanish)
In addition to these programs, we encourage our families to work with their students at home. To help, we've created the Kindergarten Readiness Guidelines
. These guidelines are a parent resource designed to help families prepare children for kindergarten. This document does not need to be completed and turned in at your school, but rather is for parents to keep as a guide to kindergarten readiness. If you have questions about the document, please contact Anne Arnold
