Readiness Guides

Welcome to kindergarten in Highline Public Schools! We believe a strong home and school partnership will help your child learn best.

Kindergarten Readiness Guides

Parents and families have a very important role as their child's first teacher. Children learn in different ways and at different rates. We encourage you to work with your child at home. To help, we've created the Kindergarten Readiness Guides which highlight some of the skills children need to be prepared for kindergarten. These guides are a parent resource designed to help families prepare children for school. 

This document does not need to be completed and turned in at the school. It is for you to keep as a guide to help your child be prepared for kindergarten.

Health & Safety 

Your child's health and safety are important to us.

If your child has a potentially life-threatening condition, Washington State law requires a parent or guardian to speak with the school nurse. This includes allergies, diabetes, asthma and seizure disorders. Please contact your school office to schedule a time to speak with the school nurse. The appointment must take place before your child can attend Jump Start and school in September.
