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.

State Health Requirements

What does Hawai‘i State Law require for school attendance?
Hawai‘i State Law requires all students to meet examination and immunization requirements before they may attend any public or private school in the state. School means any:
  • Group childcare home
  • Day nursery
  • Day care center
  • Child care center
  • Head Start program
  • Preschool
  • Kindergarten
  • Elementary school
  • Middle school
  • Secondary school

Are exemptions allowed?
Children may be exempt from immunization requirements for medical or religious reasons, if the appropriate documentation is presented to the school. Religious exemption forms may be completed at the school that your child will attend. Medical exemptions must be obtained from your child’s doctor. No other exemptions are allowed by the State.

"No TB, No School!" All students entering for the first time are required to have proof of immunizations against diphtheria, perutsis, tetanus, polio, mumps, measles, rubella, and varicella. You will also need a full physical exam.


The Department of Education's policy forbids teachers to administer medication, so if your child is under medication, please administer it at home; otherwise, make arrangements with the Health Aide. Medication may be administered in school after Form SH-36 has been completed by a doctor and submitted to the Health Aide.

Health Room/Emergency Information

Do not send your child to school if he/she is not feeling well or shows symptoms of illness. This protects your child and prevents the spread of illness among other children. If your child is injured or becomes ill at school, the Health Aide will notify you by phone. Be sure that all information on you Emergency Card is updated as needed (employment, residence, telephone numbers and emergency contacts). Only those names listed on the Emergency Card will be allowed to pick up your child in case of an emergency.
