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.

November 8 After school activities cancelled

On Thursday, November 8, 2018, Makalapa Elementary will operate on our usual Thursday schedule. Our school day ends at 2:00 pm. Parents are advised to pick up children from school by 2:30 pm. All after school activities have been cancelled for Makalapa Elementary students and Staff on November 8. These changes are needed to prepare our parking area for an Aloha Stadium event on that day.

As Hawaii’s own Bruno Mars will be performing at Aloha Stadium on the evening of Thursday, November 8, 2018, parking at Aloha Stadium, Radford High School and Makalapa Elementary will open at 3:30 p.m. for all concert goers. Honolulu Police Department (HPD) informed us that all access roads in every direction into the Makalapa-Radford area will be intermittently halted to facilitate the flow of traffic. Bumper to bumper traffic is expected up until 7:00 p.m. in the evening. HPD highly recommends staff, students and families clear the campus as early as possible. People leaving after 3:00 p.m. may be significantly delayed in the traffic congestion.

If you have any questions, please call our Makalapa Elementary School office at 421-4110. Thank you for planning accordingly! Principal,D. Arai.
