Principal Holtgraves Will Retire and HVE Will Join Us

Principal Holtgraves Will Retire and HVE Will Join Us


Dear Seahurst Families,

I want to share that I will retire at the end of this school year. It has been a privilege to serve you and your beautiful children these past six years. Nothing has brought me more joy in my career than working with the students and staff at Seahurst. The strong school-family partnerships we have built will ensure our students continue to grow and thrive.

Soon, you will be asked to provide input on the characteristics you want in Seahurst’s next principal. Your feedback will be used in the selection process. Expect to receive a link to the feedback process.

I also want to share that Highline Virtual Elementary classrooms will become part of Seahurst Elementary starting next fall.

HIghline Virtual Elementary opened last fall as a stand-alone online school, but enrollment for next year is lower than expected. By bringing the online program into an existing school, Highline can maintain an online elementary option for families who want it. The addition of online classrooms will mean additional staff position(s) will be added to Seahurst to support the increased enrollment.

Seahurst will retain its in-person classrooms serving all neighborhood students. HVE teachers will teach the online classes.

If you have any questions, please contact me at (206) 631-4800 and thank you for your partnership.

Terry Holtgraves
