As we are a few weeks in the month of March, we want to take a moment to recognize International Women's Month. This month is a time to celebrate the achievements of women throughout history, and to highlight the ongoing struggles for gender equality around the world.
At our school, we are committed to creating an inclusive and equitable environment for all students, regardless of gender or background. We believe that every student deserves the opportunity to learn and grow in a supportive community, and we strive to foster a culture of respect, kindness, and understanding.
As we celebrate International Women's Month, we want to encourage our students to learn more about the contributions of women throughout history, and to think critically about the ways in which gender affects our lives and our society. We believe that by promoting awareness and understanding, we can help create a more just and equitable world for all.
We also want to take this opportunity to acknowledge the challenges that women continue to face, both in the United States and around the world. From pay inequality to discrimination and violence, women still have a long way to go before achieving true equality.
As a community, we can work together to support and uplift women, both locally and globally. We encourage our families to have conversations with their children about the importance of gender equality, and to take action to promote women's rights and opportunities.
Thank you for your ongoing support, and we look forward to celebrating International Women's Month with you.

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.
ParentVue lets parents and guardians view their child’s assignments, grades and attendance, message teachers and review student information. You will be able to see records for all your children at any Highline school with a single login. You can also send messages in your own language, and they will be automatically translated.

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.
