Starting the week of April 19, students in grades 6-12 who have chosen hybrid learning will begin school in person.
Curbside Library Book Pick Up at Seahurst Elementary
Dear Seahurst Students and Families:
I am delighted to let you know that we are now able to begin curbside library book pick up at Seahurst Elementary! We will be offering curbside pick-up on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays between 12:30 – 2:30. This is also a time you can return any library books you still have out from last year. Students, please make sure your adult is available for curbside pick up before placing books on hold.
Students will be notified when books are ready for pick-up. Please plan to return books within 2 weeks of check-out. Returned books will be quarantined for 72 hours before they are checked back into the system.
Please limit the number of holds you place to 2 books per student.
Directions to place a hold/checkout on a book:
1) Log on to Classlink
2) Locate the “Destiny/Follett” icon and click to open. Once open, it should say “Destiny Discover” at the top and “Welcome to Seahurst Elementary”.
3) You may now search for books by title, author, subject or idea. When you find a book you want to check out, be sure to that it has a GREEN upper corner. This means the book is available now to be checked out. You can place a hold on a red corner book, but it might not be available for several weeks.
You may have 2 books checked out AND 2 books on hold at a time. Bring your books to return when you come to pick up your new books. Books may also returned during Material Distribution Day on Thursdays.
To pick up your books during designated times please follow the directions listed below:
When you arrive at the school, call the Library at 206-631-4833, and we will meet you outside the school front door. Books will be in a plastic bag. Please keep this bag and re-use it when returning your books.
I am excited to get library books back into Students hands!
Mrs. Hauke, Seahurst Librarian
See the 2019-20 school supply list.

It's so good to see you! With first-day butterflies and smiles in our eyes, we welcomed more than 1,000 fourth- and fifth-grade students back to in-person learning this week. It was the first time in more than a year these students have entered a classroom.
More teachers across Highline are using a standards-based approach to grading assignments and giving feedback. We hope to pilot a new standards-based report card soon and want to hear your thoughts. We invite all staff, families and students to attend a virtual focus group to provide feedback on standards-based grading and the new report card.
We want to provide all families, all staff and secondary students opportunities to share feedback, input and ideas on how we can support learning experiences in distance and in-person learning. Please help us better support you by completing the linked survey. The survey will run from March 29 to April 9. Results will help us to plan for this spring and next fall.
Governor Inslee has announced that schools now have the option to use three-foot distancing between students rather than six feet. This change may not apply to middle and high school students who rotate between classes during the school day, depending on community transmission levels. We do not plan to change our distancing standard this spring in Highline.
Monday, March 29 will be a distance learning day for PreK and elementary classrooms, with the exception of our special education classrooms. Students served by ILC, IAC and CBS programs will have in-person school as usual.
