Despite a light dusting of snow in the Burien area on Thursday morning, Mar. 7, Highline Public Schools started on time.

Here’s more from the district:

All schools are open and on time.

Some buses may be delayed due to traffic and road conditions.

School schedule changes are difficult. Our goal is to put safety first and minimize the negative impacts on as many people as possible. Thank you for your understanding.

In individual cases where buses cannot make it to the regular bus stop, families were individually notified of alternative stops.

If you have questions, please contact transportation at 206-631-7502.
