Message to Tyee families and student on the start of the new school year!

Message to Tyee families and student on the start of the new school year!

Dear Tyee Families,

We hope you are staying safe and doing well.  We are so excited to start a new school year with your students, even if it  looks different this year than in others.  We wanted to let you know about some important things to help you and your student prepare for their first day of school on September 9th.

1)    Distance learning this fall is going to look very different from distance learning in the spring.  Student attendance and engagement in the learning activities is required.  Students will be graded and must demonstrate learning in order to earn credits.  If your student is unable to participate during regular instructional times, please reach out to your teachers to discuss options. 

2)    Below, you will find our bell schedule.  Some changes to note:

●     Students will have three classes and advisory every quarter.

●     The student day starts at 8:30 am and ends at 3:00 pm, with a lunch break from 11:25 to 12:00. 

●     Students will have 30-minute live (synchronous) classes with their classroom teachers on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8:30-9:00 (1st period); 10:00-10:30 (2nd period); and 12:35-1:05 (3rd period). 

●     Advisory will meet with a live zoom meeting Mondays (12:00-12:30) and Wednesdays (12:00-12:35). 

●     When students are not in live Zoom meetings, they should be working on assignments found on Google Classroom (asynchronous learning), or interacting in small groups with teachers at a scheduled time. 

3)    The first day of class (Sept. 9) will follow a modified Wednesday schedule.  Students will receive an introductory lesson to their Highline Gmail account that they will complete on their own in the morning.  Their first live Zoom meeting will be with their advisories at 12:00 pm on that day.  All instructions and Zoom links for the first day will be available to students and families no later than September 8. 

4)    Student schedules are still being updated and will be finalized and posted on ParentVue/StudentVue by the end of the day on September 4th. 

5)    Lunch will be delivered to select sites between 11:45 and 12:25.  All Tyee students are eligible to receive free lunch and breakfast each day.  More information about pick-up sites will come from district communications.

6)    Advisory teachers have been reaching out to their advisee’s families to set up your Family Connections meeting during September 3rd, 4th and 8th.  This is an opportunity to get to know your students’ advisor and inform them about your students strengths, needs and goals.  In addition, your advisor will set up a weekly meeting time with your student for one-on-one goal setting and check-ins. 

7)    Some families have asked for a list of supplies. There is a suggested list on the website, but the only items you will need to start on day one, are a computer and internet.  If you need either, please contact our librarian Bob Vegar at Robert.Vegar@highlineschools.org.  We would also recommend notebooks or paper and writing utensils for note-taking.

8)     Chromebooks logins have changed.  Starting Saturday, August 29, the new login for student Chromebooks or Windows devices will be:

●      Student Username: Student ID 

●      Student Password: HighlineMM/DD/YYYY ("Highline" + student's date of birth)  **The H must be capitalized  Student IDs can be found in StudentVUE or ParentVUE.

We know that there is a lot of uncertainty and new ways of doing things this year.  We want to assure you that you and your student will have support along the way, and our attention if you have questions or suggestions.  Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us for any reason.

Have a great year!

Your Tyee Administrative Team
