Kahuku High and Intermediate School

Kahuku High and Intermediate School would like to extend a heartfelt and huge MAHALO to Turtle Bay Foundation and sustainable energy company, AES, for the gift of cool air! Last week, all 23 portable classrooms on campus were each outfitted with a 24-BTU air conditioning unit. Thank you to community liaison, Verla Moore, for facilitating the donation and to No’o Taea and Eagle Electric for the timely installation. This generous gift is greatly appreciated!

Lives of great men all remind us; we can make our lives sublime,

As graduation approaches, a KHIS alum and UH electrical engineering senior has no regrets about attending University of Hawaii

One University of Hawaii at Manoa senior set to walk on stage Saturday at the 108th commencement ceremony recalled how she initially had her mind set on a mainland college. But now she says she wouldn’t change her decision if she had to do it all over again. Sasha Yamada graduated from Kahuku High School in 2015 as a valedictorian and wanted to leave Hawaii and attend any mainland college.

Congratulations to all of the State Science Fair, History Day, and Speech and Debate participants, award winners, and students heading to the Nationals.

Mahalo teachers for your expertise, effective feedback, and endless hours spent helping our students to yield exemplary projects/products/performances. The assistance of other faculty and staff in the area of judging, SLC planning/alignment, providing resources/spaces, etc. are also greatly appreciated. HUGE KAHUKU KUDOS to Mrs. Oshima for being an integral part of our students’ success. Her infinite knowledge, experience, and passion are unparalleled!

Our administration was made aware this evening of a threat to our campus on social media.

February 21, 2019

Aloha Kahuku High & Intermediate School Community Members,

Our administration was made aware this evening of a threat to our campus on social media. The Honolulu Police Department (HPD) was notified and is currently investigating.

All threats to our school and students are taken very seriously and are investigated thoroughly. Terroristic threats are considered Chapter 19 Class A student conduct offenses. Consequences can range from detention to dismissal with the possibility of arrest and serious criminal charges. Please refrain from reposting threats. According to HPD, reposting a threat is as good as making the threat itself and contributes to carrying on the initial threat, prolonging the problem.

Out of an abundance of caution, HPD officers will be present on campus tomorrow. School will be open and there will be no change in the schedule.

As with any emergency-type situation, we are striving to balance the need for safety with our overall commitment to provide students and families with every sense of normalcy. We appreciate your help as we work together to keep all of our students safe.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our administration at (808) 305-7372.

Sincerely,

Dr. Donna Lindsey
Principal
