We have seen an increase in threats to school safety posted on social media platforms or in text messages. We treat threats on digital media—and all threats—seriously. All threats are reported to Safety & Security and law enforcement and are investigated. Students may not be aware that posting a threat on social media, text, or any digital media is a crime that can carry serious legal consequences.

The safety of our students and staff is always our first priority. We want to emphasize that we take every safety concern seriously. Whether it's something a student sees in the hallway, hears from a classmate, or reads in a private post on social media, we encourage students to speak up if they see or hear something that might be concerning.

Graduation

We look forward to celebrating our graduates this year. Ceremonies will be at ShoWare Center and the Highline Performing Arts Center. Please read arrival information for each venue.

Make Every Day Account: Why Attendance Matters

Building good attendance habits early is key to success. Students can suffer academically if they miss 10% of the school year, or about 18 days. That's just one day every two weeks.
