As we celebrated Black History Month, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the importance of this month and the significance of Black history.
This month is an opportunity for us to recognize and celebrate the achievements, contributions, and struggles of Black individuals throughout history. We honor the courage and perseverance of those who have fought for justice, equality, and freedom, and we remember those who have lost their lives in the struggle.
At our school, we are committed to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion. We strive to create an environment that is welcoming and respectful to all, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, or any other characteristic. We want all of our students to feel valued and supported, and we believe that learning about Black history is an essential part of this effort.
During this month, our teachers have been incorporating lessons and activities that focus on Black history into their curriculum. We encourage you to continue this learning at home by engaging in discussions with your children about Black history and its significance.
We also want to remind you that the celebration of Black history should not be limited to just one month. We encourage you to seek out resources and opportunities to learn about Black history throughout the year and to continue to have conversations with your children about diversity and inclusion.
Thank you for your continued support in our efforts to create a more just and equitable world for all.
Principal, Evergreen High School

News from the Library
Congratulations 9th Grader Jackson who is our top patron this year with 55 books checked out from our Evergreen High School Library.
Important Note from the Attendance Office: If you need to excuse your student’s absence, you can let us know in a few different ways:
You can write your students a note and have them bring it to the attendance office.
You can email the attendance secretary at Allison.Guidos@highlineschools.org.
By calling the attendance office at 206-631-6155. If we are unable to answer the phone please leave a voicemail with the student’s name, birthday, and the reason for the absence (i.e., sickness, medical appointment, etc.). Once we receive the message your student will be excused, usually on the same day but possibly the next day if we are out of the office.
Please only leave one message if we are unable to answer as it creates a backlog for the office.

Trio is a FREE support program to help students get to and through college. If your student is a Junior or Senior this year, we really encourage them to connect with this program.
- There is a no-tolerance stance with cell phones and wireless headphones in classroom learning environments.
Evergreen students have access (1 to 1) to laptops. It is an expectation that students bring their laptops to school daily.
We will take a “reasonableness” approach to clothing students wear. Similar to going to a work environment, we will have respectful conversations as necessary to help students think through what is reasonable to wear as appropriate clothing to school.
We are positioning advisors as the point of contact for home and school. Advisory starts our day off firmly grounded in a supportive learning environment with their advocate. We expect students to be in their advisory class daily starting at 8am.
If your student plans to drive to school, please have your child sign up for a parking permit with our Bookkeeper Ms. Prado as soon as possible. Please note that parking permits are a required safety measure at our school to identify who should and should not be on campus during school hours.
As always, we want you to feel able to reach out to our Evergreen family for any questions you may have.
