ALL VISITORS AND PARENTS must report to the office to sign in for a school visitor pass. This is to ensure safety, provide accountability, support students, and respect learning.


For the safety and health of our students, the playground is now closed before and after school. There has been an increased number of unsupervised students on the playground at these times and the faculty and staff are not available for supervision during these hours. We ask that students leave campus immediately after school unless they are participating in a school sponsored after school event. Also, as posted on signs around campus, there is to be no riding of scooters, skateboards, hoverboards or bikes while on campus. Thank you for your cooperation.

Make it a GREAT Spring Break

Aloha Everyone!
Wanted to make sure to wish all of you a Happy Spring Break. Take some time doing the 3 R's (Rest, Rejuvenate, and Reflect). Don't forget the 4th R (Return to school on March 29th).

Giving Thanks

Aloha Everyone!

During this season of "giving thanks", I wanted to make sure to let you know that you are an important part of our TEAM.  We have come so very far in such a short amount of time.  This is possible, because of your willingness to put our students at the "heart" of what we do. 

I am thankful for all of the members that make up our TEAM. I am thankful to be provided with an opportunity to be a part of our TEAM.  I am thankful that we all leave work each and every day with a sense that we have made a difference in the lives of our students.  I am thankful to our registered volunteers and our community partners who are supporting student learning.

May this season of giving thanks be one to remember!
