Arrival and Departure Times 

  • Safety is one of our largest concerns at Highlands Elementary and we need your assistance to keep your child safe.  Students CANNOT arrive for school before 8:20am unless they are breakfast students; breakfast is served at 8:10am.  On late start Fridays, students CANNOT arrive for school before 9:50am unless they are breakfast students; breakfast is served at 9:40am.  Students MUST be picked up promptly no later than 3:15pm.

    NO ADULT SUPERVISION IS PROVIDED BEFORE 8:20am or after 3:15pm.

    Please note that if your child arrives at school before 8:20am (or 9:50am on late start Friday) or stays at school after 3:15pm, you may be charged a service fee to cover the cost of providing adult supervision to keep your student safe.

    The Renton Recreational Center is located across our parking lot and through the field.  You may choose to have your child wait for you there if these times are difficult to meet.  The Recreation Center is only open after school, and you must visit the center first with your child before your child may attend alone.  The Renton School District is NOT affililiated with the Renton Recreation Center.
