A letter from the Principal - March 18

Dear Evergreen Families and Community,


We are in the midst of an uncertain, stressful time—we must depend on the wisdom and science of health experts and lean on the strength of our community. 


The school closures ordered by Governor Inslee are a hard but necessary step to slow the spread of Covid-19, but will clearly impact the whole community, especially families.  Now more than ever is the time to “dig deep, rise up, and branch out” to support one another in our Evergreen and broader community. Evergreen High School may be closed, but it is not gone.


Please continue to look for weekly messages from me and your child’s teachers for how your child can continue to engage in learning activities from home. Specifically, teachers will call and message you in Synergy if your student did not pass a class first semester, but has the opportunity to re-assess on standards and earn credit back during this time. Students may also make up missing work from this semester, as well. In addition, free grab and go breakfast and lunch are available for all youth 18 years old and younger outside the main office at Evergreen from 7:30-9:00AM and at Cascade Middle School from 12:00-12:30PM.  


We know many families are feeling the economic impact of this pandemic. Here are some valuable resources Highline Public Schools has shared so far with the community:


If your family needs additional financial or social-emotional support, please contact our school social worker, Chris Vaggalis at christopher.vaggalis@highlineschools.org or 206-631-6224. For support in Spanish and/or other languages, please contact our Bilingual Family Liaison, Alcira Beltran at alcira.beltran@highlineschools.org or (206) 631-6171.


Please be on the lookout for updates from the district office and our school. You can also follow us on Instagram @ehswolverines. Please do not hesitate to contact me at any time with thoughts and questions. Take care and stay safe and healthy, Wolverines.
