Welcome to the 2017-18 School Year!

If you do not use the online registration system by August 4th, you will need to register in person at the school on August 8th or 9th. Please be aware that this process may take extra time and uses a lot of paper resources, as we will only print documents on an as-needed basis.

We encourage all of our families to review the Free and Reduced Lunch Program guidelines and apply. Applying or qualifying for the program does not commit you to using the program. It merely provides additional funding for Highline.
