The Husky Update February 15, 2021

Information for our Highline Community

From Principal Sanchez-Hart

Hello Highline Families,


I hope you and your family are staying warm during these bitterly cold days of winter. As a school we raised $467 for Kannon, the Overland High School Wish Week recipient. Thank you for your generosity in raising funds to support this deserving child.


SPRING CONFERENCES:

If you haven't already heard from your child's teacher, it is spring conferences time. Please make an appointment to meet with your student's teacher to discuss how your student is progressing academically in reading, writing, and mathematics. Our partnership with families is crucial to your student's success. On Tuesday, February 23rd, report cards will go home. Please make time to review how your child is doing to prepare the questions you might have for your child's teacher.


Conference Dates:


  • Evening conferences will be held from 3:00-7:00 pm on Wednesday, February 24 and Thursday, February 25.
  • Daytime conferences will be held Thursday, March 4th from 8:00-3:00 pm.


HOLIDAY MEAL SUPPORTS:

During this President's' Day holiday, check out the flyer about meal support options available tomorrow, Monday, February 15.


Last but not least, please see the note from our dear Nurse Mandy about her early departure. In the upcoming weeks we will receive support from a district itinerant nurse. I will share more information about who will support Highline in Nurse Mandy's absence.


As always, I am thankful for our continued support from all of our Highline families and students, and it is my honor to serve the Highline Community students, families, and staff.


We are Highline - Proud, Strong and United!


Sincerely,

Diana

From Nurse Mandy Pubins, RN

Hello Highline Families,


I just wanted to reach out and share some life changes coming up for me and my family in the very near future.


As some of you may know, my husband serves in the United States Air Force and we have received orders to relocate to California. Though our report date isn't until early May, we will be relocating while I am out on maternity leave, making February 12th my last day at Highline.


I'm so thankful for the time I've been able to learn and grow here at HLN. You graciously accepted me into your family and my heart has been filled to the brim with the amazing community that is Highline. ❤️


Serving as your school nurse has forever impacted my heart. There isn't a single thing I've learned in my time here that I won't be able to apply to future nursing positions as well as my day-to-day life. This community truly makes saying goodbye difficult. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for all that you do and all that you have done for me.


As always, my best!


Nurse Mandy

Computer Use and Tech Support

We encourage your student(s) to continue to use their district issued computer at home. At this time we will not collect the computer distributed. Instead stay connected with your student's teacher. They may ask that students bring their computer to school to use or to complete homework at home such as iReady modules or an activity in SeeSaw.

Please continue to care for the devices and use them appropriately.


Tech Reminders:

  • Charge your computer each night.
  • Shut down the computer periodically when not in use.
  • Keep food and drinks away from the devices.


Is your internet running slow?

  • Try unplugging your modem.
  • Let your modem stay unplugged for 10-15 minutes.
  • Plug in and wait for the lights to come back on.
  • Now your modem is ready to go.
When in doubt, reach out to your service provider (Comcast, T-Mobile, Centurylink).

When your student is quarantined, here's Meal Pick Information
