Principal's Corner - March 2014

Dear Families,

I hope everyone found several good books to read during Midwinter break! Our goal is to have every scholar reading on grade level by the end of the year. Students should read at home at their independent reading level every day!

Ask your child about their reading level and reading goals; if they can’t answer clearly, ask your child’s teacher for more information. It’s a big year for the Seattle Seahawks (Go Hawks)! Every single member of the Seahawks had to be a strong enough reader to go to college!

The beginning of March is always school budget time in Seattle Public Schools. School will receive their initial budget/staffing allocations at the beginning of March and have two weeks to discuss any proposals or modifications. Please join me at the PTA meeting on March 13, from 5:30 to 7:00 pm to learn about and discuss Highland Park’s budget.

It looks like Highland Park met our first semester attendance goal! Let’s keep it up – we want every student on time and ready to learn every day. Students should be at Highland Park by 8:35 am or by 8:20 am if they are eating breakfast. The school bell rings at 8:40 am. A staff member is assigned to remain on the playground until the classrooms are in.

Benjamin Ostrom
Principal


Note from Nurse Tina


It’s Not Too Late to Get Vaccinated Against the Flu!
Protect yourself and your loved ones by getting your family vaccinated against the flu. Influenza spreads readily from person to person in schools, workplaces and homes. Everyone over 6 months of age should get the annual flu vaccine. Vaccination is especially important for pregnant women, people caring for children under six months of age, the elderly, and people with long-term health problems. Highland Park students can get the flu vaccine conveniently at school at the Neighborcare school-based health clinic (click here, call 206 455-9025, or see school nurse for more information). In addition, flu vaccine (shots and nasal spray) is available at many healthcare provider offices and pharmacies for those who have insurance or are able to pay for vaccination. Visit http://flushot.healthmap.org to help find locations. If you don’t have insurance, you can find free or low-cost insurance through http://WashingtonHealthplanfinder.gov. Other immunization assistance is available through the Family Health Line at 1-800-322-2588. For more information, visit www.kingcounty.gov/health/flu
