Aloha kākou,
If you are interested in having your child catch the bus in the mornings and in the afternoons, please be sure to fill out the JotForms. Mahalo!!



So excited for keiki return tomorrow for our new school year. Hereʻs some important information:

First, due to the current HIGH level of COVID community spread we are committed to keeping our ʻohana, keiki and limahana safe. We will be maintaining indoor masking for the month of August and reassess as we move forward. Outdoor masking will remain optional. All other COVID rules will remain the same regarding quarantine/isolation/close contact. I will be sharing a QUICK GLANCE informational doc with you all to answer any questions you may have.

Second, all pickup and drop off times and procedures remain the same on all campuses. 

  1. Our BELL SCHEDULE is 8:00am start of school and 2:10 end of school with Wednesday as a short day at 12:00pm. 
  2. As a reminder Kai Kohola does not begin until Monday, August 8th. 
  3. At HALE LAMALAMA we will be dropping off all keiki at the door near the office. We will not be having ʻohana come in to take their keiki, limahana will be available to walk keiki to their new classes and assist with carrying their ʻukana. We will be having an OPEN HOUSE later in the month where ʻohana may come to visit their keikiʻs classroom and school site. Pickup will also remain the same with Papa Malāaʻo and 1 at the keʻena door and Papa 2 and 3 at the parking lot doors. If you have mutliple keiki, please pick up on the side based on your eldest keiki.  
  4. At PA HOAKA drop off for all keiki will be at the back 2 story building, this includes our 4th and 5th graders. We will have keiki walked over to Hale Kula (front building for Papa 4 and 5) when kumu arrive. Pick up and drop off remains the same. 

Third, we will be starting bus service on Monday for those ʻohana that complete the first day packet by Saturday. If you do not complete by Saturday your keiki will not be able to ride the bus. 

  1. Pickup begins at 6;45 at Shipman and 7:05 at Panaewa Park. 
  2. Drop off is 2:50 pm at Panaʻewa and 3:05 at Shipman. 
  3. Keiki in A+ from Pa Hoaka will be dropped at Hale Lamalama.
  4. Keep in mind and plan that at any given time the bus may run 10-15 mins early or late.
  5. Another bus sign up will be shared later this week with more information, if you are interested please keep posted and fill out form ASAP.

Finally, we do want to return to a semblance of normalcy and encourage ʻohana engagement so we are planning an open house within August. We will keep you posted on the dates once paʻa. 


Mahalo again and excited to see everyone tomorrow.
