Chinook picture day, September 16
We're back! The 2019-20 school year is officially underway.
Good attendance will help children do well in high school, college and at work. Students can suffer academically if they miss 10% of the school. That's just one day every two weeks.

It is almost time for school to start! Here are nine things to do as you get ready for the first day of school.
Starting in fall 2019, we are taking a new approach to middle school math to ensure students have the foundational skills necessary to be successful in algebra and beyond. We are introducing a new math curriculum, and the course sequence will be different than before.
Summer office hours and important back-to-school events.
Chinook Middle School physical education teacher Reid Sundblad is the 2019 Regional Teacher of the Year, representing King and Pierce counties. This honor makes Sundblad a candidate for the Washington State Teacher of the Year award, which will be announced this fall.
Highline children can eat free breakfast, lunch, and snacks during the summer through the federally funded Simplified Summer Food Program. The program provides funding for several of our schools to serve children living in South King County.

With the close of the legislative session, we now have a clearer budget picture for 2019-20. State lawmakers made some modifications to the McCleary funding plan that help us. However, enrollment is still declining, and that means a decline in state funding.
Our strategic plan names ambitious academic goals, including a goal for at least 19 out of 20 students to graduate prepared to choose their future. Why aim so high? Because our students are worth it, and they are capable of it.
On Wednesday, May 15 the Highline School Board approved the adoption of new social studies and math curricula. Students will begin using the new instructional materials in fall 2019.
Due to snow days, the schedule for the last week of school has changed.
