The tentative first day of school for the 2020-21 school year will be on Thursday, September 3, for grades 1-12. We anticipate formal ratification by Highline Educators Association (HEA) membership in August.
Please note, the first day of school falls before the Labor Day holiday this year. The district and HEA have agreed to the following guidelines for setting the first day of school:
- When Labor Day falls on September 1, 2, 3 or 4, the first student day of school is the Wednesday after Labor Day.
- When Labor Day falls on September 5, 6 or 7, the first student day of school will be the Thursday before Labor Day
For kindergarten students, school will start on Wednesday, September 9. Preschool will start on September 14.
