The purpose of these accounts are to disseminate information on Highline Public Schools' topics. It is not intended to be a public forum. Comments posted to these accounts will be monitored and may be disabled.
We update and monitor these accounts intermittently throughout the week day--from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. At times, the accounts may be used before and after these times to communicate about urgent issues or respond to inquiries from members of the public.
While we aim to engage in open conversation, we also ask that posts are respectful of our Highline community and are consistent with our Equity Policy. Individuals who do not follow the social media policy, procedure, and guidelines for staff, students and board members, will have their posts removed, and/or be blocked from the sites.

This includes comments that have obscene language or sexual content; threaten, attack or insult any person, staff member or organization; violate the legal ownership interest of another party; promote illegal activity; promote commercial services or products; or are not topically related to the particular posting; or contain contents that promote, foster, or perpetuate discrimination on the basis of race, creed, color, age, religion, gender, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, national origin, physical or mental disability or sexual orientation. We will not, however, remove otherwise permissible comments based on viewpoint.
