Fall 2020

Distance Learning

Students began the school year in distance learning, based on the trajectory of COVID infections in King County, feedback from staff and families, and conversations with our neighboring school districts. Our priority is the health and safety of students and staff.

We are now planning a return to in-person learning for elementary students; however, students may choose to remain in distance learning for the rest of this school year. 

Distance Learning Plan

All students will participate in distance learning. Check out the plan for Fall 2020 and see an example student schedule.

Hybrid Learning 

We plan to begin in our hybrid model with social distancing. Students will have the option to continue distance learning if they choose.

Virtual Academy

Since we will offer distance learning as an option after hybrid learning starts, we have postponed the opening of Highline Virtual Academy until Fall 2021. This allows us to fully focus on our improved distance learning program, which will be significantly different than what students experienced last spring.
