Hawaii DOE Official School Calendar

NEW School Calendar for the 2017-2018 School Year

 

The 2017-2018 school calendar includes school days that are in session from 7:45 AM to 2:00 PM each day of the week (Monday-Friday), with NO short Wednesdays (out at 1:15 PM) as we have done in the past. 

 

The unique feature of the new schedule is approximately every other Friday will be optional for students. On the optional Fridays, the buses will run, breakfast and lunch will be served, and supervised activities will be provided by our 21st Century Grant Partners.

 

Benefits of the optional Friday include:

  1. Medical/dental appoints can be scheduled on the optional Fridays so no instruction is missed.
  2. School athletic teams will not have to leave school early and miss instruction on away game Fridays.
  3. Detention and suspensions will occur on the optional Fridays so no school time is missed.
  4. Parent conferences, Student Support Team meetings, Core meetings and IEP meetings can occur on Fridays
  5. Noisy yard work can take place near the classrooms on Friday without disrupting instructional time.
