Aloha and Welcome to the 2017-18 School Year

Aloha e nā ‘ohana o ke kula waena ma Kapālama!

As we close our first week of school, I am very happy to share that it’s been an exciting week.  The students should be going home very tired this weekend as they transitioned into their new school year this past school week.

I wanted to remind you about student drop-off and pick up.  Those who ride the country buses get dropped off and picked up at Keawe Gymnasium.  For those who come in by personal vehicle, the official drop-off and pick-up is at Kekūhaupi’o Gymnasium.  Utilizing the middle school circle on the ‘Ewa end of our campus proved to cause too much traffic on Bishop Drive both in the morning and the afternoon, therefore, no one should be dropping their child off directly at the middle school.  If there are physical limitations that require a closer drop-off/pick-up, please let us know by contacting our main office.

From 3:00 – 4:00 p.m., there should be no vehicular traffic coming down Ali’i Road (Snake Hill) as our country buses are making their way in and out of the Keawe Circle to pick-up and bring our country students home for the evening.  Cars not only complicate traffic for the buses, but also pose a threat to the foot traffic of our students.

Your cooperation is appreciated as we try to keep student safety and well-being as a priority.  Currently, there are two terminal buses that leave our campus at 3:15 p.m. and 3:20 p.m.  Your child could board those buses and you can pick him/her up at the School Street bus terminal to avoid campus traffic.
