Families of ʻĪao School,
As we near the end of this school year we ask for your cooperation in maintaining an orderly, safe and positive experience for all students. Please read the following announcements and review them with your child prior to Monday, May 23. As always, we value and appreciate your partnership with ʻĪao School.
Change to Dismissal Times: On Wednesday, May 25 students will be dismissed at 2:00 PM. On Thursday, May 26 students will be dismissed at 1:10 PM. Thursday, May 26 is the last day of school.
8th Grade Computer Returns: All 8th grade students must return their school-issued laptop computers and chargers next week. Returns will take place in the Library during your child’s ELA class on either Monday, May 23 or Tuesday, May 24. Computers will be checked for damages and functionality, so 8th graders should bring their computers to return fully charged.
6th and 7th Grade Computers: All 6th and 7th grade students will keep their school-issued laptops over Summer. If your child plans to attend a different school next year, the computer and charger should be returned to the Main Office upon withdrawal from ʻĪao School.
Student Uniform Guidelines for Last Week of School: Next week is Spirit Week at ʻĪao and students may wear shirts other than the school uniform on the following days: Monday (Hawaiian Logos), Tuesday (Cultural dress), and Thursday (Class Color). Class colors are black(g.8), blue(g.7), and red(g.6). On Wednesday all students must wear their school uniform UNLESS they are attending 8th grade Banquet or the 6th grade field trip. Students may NOT bring backpacks to school next Wednesday and Thursday.
Grade-Level Activities: Wednesday, May 25 is our Grade Level Activity Day. 6th grade will visit Maui Golf and Sports Park, 7th grade will visit Waiheʻe Coastal Dunes, and 8th grade will attend a Celebration Banquet on campus. Students not participating will have a special schedule with alternate activities. On Thursday, May 26 students will attend the traditional end-of-year Awards Assembly and 8th Grade Farewell Ceremony at Wailuku Gym. This event is for students and staff only.
Uniform Donations: Each year, as students move on to high school or grow in size, we ask families to donate their used ʻĪao uniforms. These shirts are used as daily loaners for students that come to school out of uniform. Please bring clean uniform donations to the Main Office all next week.
Yearbooks Coming Soon: Yearbooks are scheduled to arrive next week and will be distributed in Homeroom classes. Yearbooks were all pre-purchased at the time student fees were paid and will not be sold next week. Students should immediately write their name in their yearbook when they receive it.
Summer Reminders: Students that fail one or more core subjects for the year will be enrolled in Recovery Summer School. Final failure lists will be submitted next Wednesday and families will be notified if their child must attend Recovery Summer School on June 1. Due to construction on campus, Grab and Go Meals will not be served at ʻĪao School this Summer.
