2021-22 Great Start Guide: Elementary (K5-6)

List of 8 items.

  • Individual Student Orientation

    To ensure a great start to a successful school year, the student and at least one parent of each student must attend orientation.

    All Elementary students will have individual orientation appointments scheduled by the divisional offices on August 9. Your child can meet his/her teacher before the first day of school and bring school supplies. Students do not need to wear uniforms for orientation.

    For Grades 4-6, students do not need to bring their laptop.

    What to bring to orientation:
  • First Days of School - Updated

    First Days of School for On-campus Students:

    Tuesday, August 10 - Opening Day Grades 1-6
    Wednesday, August 11 - Opening Day K3-K5
    The first days of school will be a regular, full day with Before- and After-School Care. For the first few days, it is often easier for first time students, especially K3 students, to be picked up immediately after school rather than staying in After-School Care. After the children are acquainted with the school, the transition to After-School Care is much easier.
  • Health & Safety

    Please read our 2021-22 COVID-19 Handbook for more details about new health & safety measures on campus including the following:

  • Health Requirements

    Hawaii State Law requires that all students entering any Hawaii school must submit the following:

    • 2) a completed Student Health Record (ENR-09) form
    All required immunizations and a physical examination must be dated within one year before the first day of school in the state of Hawaii. The following are the required immunizations:

    Time periods between doses must meet the Hawaii Department of Health requirements. Students missing the required immunizations or the required documents will not be permitted to enter school on the first day (Hawaii Administrative Rules Title 11 Chapter 157, Department of Health Immunization Branch 586-8313).
