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.

Board Directors Azeb Hagos and Melissa Petrini

School Board Directors Azeb Hagos and Melissa Petrini will host a community conversation on Tuesday, June 4 for families and students across Highline to talk about and learn more about student learning.

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.

Our Mission

At Des Moines Elementary, we value each of the roles within our community. We view students, families, teachers, and staff as integral components to ongoing success. We see every member of our community as having something to offer, something to gain, and many ways to demonstrate success.
