Student Responsibilities

Kahuku students are expected to be responsible, productive members of the Kahuku school community. During the school day, your primary job is to be in class. You must read and be fully responsible for all attendance policies, discipline guidelines, and each teacher’s course requirements. You must be responsible for completing any assignments missed during absences on a timely basis. You must respect yourself and others. Respect your school; it is your second home. Your parents, Kahuku teachers, and administrators are your support system. We want you to succeed, but ultimately YOU determine your success or failure by your willingness to take responsibility and be accountable for your behavior and actions.
