Pick up location is in the H Building parking lot (middle school playcourt). Please stay in your cars for your safety and the safety of those helping to distribute work.
Please see our website for additional information at pahoahis.org.
Q: Can I send someone to pick up computers for my children?
A: No. We need the students available so that we can determine that the student attends Pahoa High and Intermediate School.
Q: Can I send my aunt/uncle/grandmother/babysitter to pick up a computer with my student?
A: No. Parents/Guardians must sign to accept the responsibility for replacing the computer should the computer be lost or damaged.
Q: How do I contact my student’s teachers?
A: There are numerous links provided through pahoahis.org for parents to find emails, phone numbers, etc. Teachers will be working to reach out to their students to help them access the work being provided.
Q: Does this work “count”? In other words, will the work be graded.
A: These activities are enrichment activities, helping students to reinforce what they already know and help them not to forget what they learned. Completing these activities will help your student to enter the classroom ready to learn when we return.
On Friday, March 27, 8 AM to 12 PM computers will be available for students who may need them for the enrichment activities at H Building parking lot. Parents will need to sign the acceptable use policy to receive a computer and will be responsible if the computer is lost or damaged.

Z One of our students went head to head with the best and the brightest at the District Science Fair and performed extremely well in one of the toughest competitions to date. He was also the only KKP student to compete this year! Xavier Tablit, 11th Grade, received many awards – the Imiloa Outstanding Project in Space Science Award, the Sierra Club Moku Loa Dr. Don Worsencroft Award, the East Asian Observatory Research Project Award, the NASA Earth System Science Award, and incredibly the Yale Science and Engineering Association, Inc. Award! Additionally he placed the Best in Subject Senior Division for Physics and Astronomy, and 5th place overall in the Senior Division. This was a continuation project that Xavier completed discovering and researching star “anomalies” that have never been seen before! He garnered prizes of certificates, cash prizes, and even a year’s free membership for him and his family to Imiloa! Xavier will move on to the State Competitions.
