1/9 - 1/12

Hope you had a healthy restful Holiday Break. Welcome back to another great school year.

Hawaii State Public Library System has a reading challenge:

Safety Issues and Reminders

We have had several complaints about parents driving unsafely in the school zone and not cooperating with the Junior Police Officers and patrol officers.  Please remember that there is a speed limit of 15 mph during school hours so please slow down in the area around the school.  We also ask that you allow yourself sufficient time to get to school so your child has time to get to his/her classroom before the tardy bell rings at 7:55.  This could minimize some of the traffic problems we have experienced.
Please remember that all visitors must sign in at the front office. We will be asking for identification if you are picking up your child from school before the bell rings. If someone comes to school and requests to pick up your child, and they are not on your approved list in our database, we will not release your child without getting in contact with you first.
At the end of the day, we ask that you refrain from coming on campus until just before the bell rings. It is disruptive to classrooms when adults are speaking loudly or little ones are running around. If you arrive at school and there is still learning time, we encourage you to wait in the cafeteria or the outdoor pavilion until about 5 minutes before the bell rings. The teachers and students will appreciate your cooperation with this.
There have been instances when parents or emergency contacts need to be called due to a child’s illness or injury, and all of the numbers on our list are not in service or are not accepting voice mail messages.  Please be sure to update your list or check at the office to be sure we have the right phone numbers for your contacts. 

Tues. Jan. 9          Welcome back to the 3rd Quarter. Happy New Year

Wed. Jan. 10        School is out at 1:10 every Wednesday

Thurs. Jan. 11      Chaperone Training in PCNC corner of front office from 8am – 8:30am

Fri. Jan. 12           School starts at 7:55 every day. Be in your seat or get tardy slip from office.
