Parent Information » Drop Off and Pick Up Map

Drop Off and Pick Up Map

  • Parents and legal guardians should remain in their car when dropping off or picking up their child. If they must disembark their vehicle, wear a mask.
  • Previously, students were allowed to wait in the cafeteria if they came to campus earlier than that.  Due to the social distancing guidelines, we are no longer able to accommodate students waiting in the cafeteria along with those who are eating breakfast.
  • It is highly recommended that students are dropped off closer to the start of school, between 7:45 am - 8:00 am, unless they plan to eat school breakfast. Parents are to drop off only and may not walk students to class.
  • We understand that this may be difficult, but students will not be accepted on campus prior to 7:15 am.
  • If students are dropped off between 7:15 am - 7:45 am, you must use the Andrews Gym drop-off area. Traffic out of Andrews Gym is right turn only.
    • Students in grades K-1 will wait near their classroom.  Areas have been designated for each class following all social distancing guidelines.
    • Students in grades 2-5 will wait in Andrews Gym with Waiākeawaena Staff following all social distancing guidelines.  
    • Students should bring something to read (book, magazine, comic book, etc.) as no personal electronics are allowed on campus.
  • If students are dropped off between 7:45 am - 8:00 am, you may drop off at Kino`ole St. or Andrews Gym.
  • Kino`ole gates will be locked until 7:45 am.
  • If your child is tardy (8:00 am or later) please use the Kilauea Avenue drop-off in front of the office.

We will be using a tiered dismissal system to reduce the number of students walking around campus at the same time.


  • 1:50 pm: Bus riders will be released to be picked up at Kilauea Ave.


  • 2:00 pm: Student last names that start with letters A-K, will be released for pick up at Andrews Gym.
  • 2:10 pm: Student last names that start with letters L-Z will be released for pick up at Kino’ole St.
  • Siblings/ same household members with different last names will be assigned to one pick up area. Parents will be notified separately.
