King Kaumuali`i's Attendance Policy

The school day starts at 7:50 a.m.

Students who come to school early must go to the cafeteria for study hall (6:45-7:30 am) because there is no supervision on campus until later. Students are excused at 7:30 a.m. The gates are opened at this time. A warning bell rings at 7:45 a.m., students should be walking to class at that time. When the bell rings at 7:50a.m., students should be in their rooms. After 7:50 a.m. they are tardy and the teacher will mark them tardy. At 8:00 a.m. the day's attendance is reported. Therefore after 8:00 a.m. the student needs to get a tardy slip from the office before reporting to class.

Excessive tardiness and absences are very harmful to student learning. Please help us by making sure your child is on time andattends school regularly.


If a student is absent for only one day, the student should get his/her homework the next day when returning to school.

If a student is absent for more than one day and you need to get homework, please follow this procedure.

Call the office before 8:30 a.m. so that the teacher can be contacted and put together the material as well as teach all of the other children during the day. Pick up the homework after school in the office.
