News & Announcements

School Community Council

The first meeting of this year will be held on August 19th @ 3:00 in the office conference room. This council is comprised of parents, teachers, administrators, staff in order to make school improvement decisions.

Pedestrian Crossing only on "Walk" signal

Hawaii Revised Statute 291C-33 was amended to clarify that pedestrians should not enter the crosswalk during the countdown. The only legal time for pedestrians to enter the crosswalk is on a "walk" signal. At the street crossing on Salt Lake Blvd, do not enter the crosswalk when the countdown begins, when the red hand is blinking, and/or when the hand is red.

Parent Parking

1. Parents are allowed to park in unmarked stalls along Salt Lake Blvd.
2. Stalls in the front of the office are marked for Office and Health room business.
*Numbered Stalls are reserved for teachers.

Drop Off Students at the Bus Shelter

Please refrain from stopping in front of C-building and the Main Office to drop off children as this behavior creates traffic and a backlog of cars headed east and west along Salt Lake Blvd waiting to turn into our driveway. We ask for your respectful consideration for our school morning procedure and student safety by driving to the student drop off area at building F.

We also remind you to refrain from making a U-turn in front of our Main Office. This behavior endangers the safety of our children and parents while creating frustration for parents who patiently wait their turn to exit our parking lot.

To reduce the traffic in the parking lot, parents are advised to have your child ready to exit the car. Having student backpacks and bags zipped and ready to go prior to arriving at the drop off area will lessen the wait for everyone in the drop off line.

Your kokua is greatly valued.
