Ohana Events

Ohana Events are hands-on activities that families could participate in to support learning, build a sense of belonging, and a sense of place. The locations could vary from Kapolei Middle School or places within the Kapolei community (outside of school). We value our community of families as the most critical component in the success and well-being of our students. In our desire to be partners with your family, we highly encourage opportunities throughout the school year to engage with our staff, faculty, and other families in the community. We would appreciate if you could share your voice and your thoughts in this survey to help guide our plans for this upcoming school year. Click to fill out survey

After the fifth discretionary bus pass is issued, and your child forgets the bus pass, he/she will not be allowed to ride the bus and an alternative means of transportation will need to be made by student and parent.

Excerpt from the School Bus Handbook

Students are expected to display their bus pass (or render a bus coupon) to the driver upon demand. Failure to do so may result in disciplinary action and service disruptions as follows: Elementary and Middle school students who to display a valid bus pass in the mornings will be transported to school and then immediately reported to the school principal. Students who fail to display a valid bus pass in the afternoons may be required to obtain a temporary bus pass from their school office before boarding the bus. Repeat offenders will not be permitted to board the bus.

If your child has lost his/her bus pass, a replacement can be purchased at the Kapolei Middle School office. Replacement fee is $5.00.
