Aloha Parents and Guardians of Pahoa High and Intermediate School Students, this is Mr. Williamson.
Parent teacher conferences are next week on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Please go to pahoahis.org to sign up. Unfortunately, the infinite campus system was down today and we were not able to print report cards as we had hoped. We will be mailing them on Monday. You can always log in to infinite campus to see the grades. If you have not yet signed up, please call the school and we would be happy to connect you with our tech department.
Next week is spirit week and each day has a theme. Please see our website for more details.
Friday, October 29, we will have drive thru Trunk or Treat on campus. It will be from 5:30-7:30. Please remember that you cannot walk through. We will have prepackaged candy and other food items to donate.
Finally, we are continuing to offer COVID-19 screening on campus twice per week for students. On Monday, we will be partnering with the National Kidney Foundation who will be on site administering the tests. We will have same day test results. This is different than the Color Test we have been offering. If you are interested, please see our website pahoahis.org.

Mr. Williamson discuss the questions for School Year 2021-22

For school year 2021-2022, we need to inform you of changes occurring in the Student Transportation Services Branch. Per the Hawaii Administrative Rules (HAR), students who qualify for free meal service also qualify for free bus pass transportation. Historically this has meant that students who attend Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) schools like ours, receive a free bus pass because all students are receiving free meals.
In 2019, the HAR was revised clarifying that only students who are certified eligible by the Department of Human Services to participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) are also eligible for free bus passes.
The Student Transportation Services Branch will be adhering to these guidelines beginning in the 2021-2022 school year.
To clarify, a student attending a CEP school must be SNAP certified to be eligible for a free bus pass.

Aloha Parents and Guardians of Pahoa High and Intermediate Students, this is Mr. Williamson.
This Friday, July 2, from 11-2:00 pm, we will be having a schedule pick up on campus. Students are welcome to come down and get their schedules for next school year. While they are here, they can also pick up athletic forms and pay their class dues. We will be selling up to two dress standard t-shirts, a requirement for next school year, at a discounted price and we will also have order forms to get more shirts for the school year. Hawaii County will have information tables regarding rental assistance and volcano recovery assistance.
Finally, KTA superstores pharmacy will be here to give out vaccines to those who are interested, including adults and community members - if the student is younger than 18, a parent must be present for them to get the shot. Students will receive $5 Jamba Juice gift cards for getting their shots and everyone is eligible to enter the statewide drawings for a chance to win Hawaiian Air Miles, free trips and so much more. Students coming in will be entered into door prize drawings for a JBL speaker, bluetooth headphones, Yeti bottles, and Pahoa High School Swag bags.
Canʻt make it on Friday? We will have a second opportunity for all of this on July 23rd.
We hope to see you this Friday!
This is a fast survey to determine if there is interest in a COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic on our campus. We just need to know if this is something you and your family would be interested in. It would be open to people 12 years and up (anyone under 18 would need parent permission). We are hoping to do this right before we return to school along with our schedule pick up, pictures for IDs, etc.
Aloha Parents, Guardians, and Students of Pahoa High and Intermediate School, this is Acting Principal Williamson,
Starting on May 28th and continuing on June 1st and June 3rd, we will be accepting back student computers, power cords, and mifi devices. This will happen May 28 - 8am-11am, June 1 - 9am-12pm, June 3 - 10am - 1pm. You will be routed through the main high school parking lot. Please follow the signs and directions as it will be a one way system. As you arrive, we will inspect each device to see that it is relatively undamaged and in working order which will take a few minutes for each inspection. Cost for a non returned or broken machine can be over $300.
If your student is currently enrolled in our summer program, they will not need to return their device - they will do so at the end of summer program.
If your student is done with all classwork and you would like to return their devices early, you can come by the school Monday - Friday between 9 AM and 2 AM.
Finally, a notice has been posted to your student’s email as well as to the school website regarding the start of next school year in August. Throughout the summer, we will update the website with additional information, schedule pick ups, and other important information. Our website is pahoahis.org.
Thank you for your continued support for your children and our school!
