School Policies



The official school day for students begins at 7:55 a.m. and ends at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday and at 1:10 p.m. on Wednesday. Please stress to your child the importance of attending school regularly and being punctual. A student getting to school after 7:55 a.m. is considered tardy. The main office regular hours are 7:30am-4:00pm and 8:00am-3pm on waiver days and breaks.

Students should leave campus immediately after school ends unless authorized to attend a school activity such as tutoring, an UPLINK club/sport, or Kama'aina Kids. All students have a responsibility to show 'Aiea P.R.I.D.E. by being respectful to fellow students, property, and adults on campus.



A parent or guardian must call the school’s office at 305-9200 between 7:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. to notify the school as to the day(s) your child is expected to be absent from school. Upon return to school, parents/guardians must SUBMIT a letter to the office or send an email to [email protected].

  • If the office DOES NOT receive an excuse note within 5 school days, the absences will be recorded as an UNEXCUSED ABSENCE, and the student will be considered “truant” for the day.
  • With 3 or more truant days per quarter, the advisory teacher will notify parent/guardian.
  • With 6 or more truant days per quarter, the advisory teacher will refer the student to the office and the vice principal will notify parent/guardian and the student must attend Aiea Intermediate’s Saturday School program from 8:00 a.m. to 12 p.m.

List of Excused Absences:

  • Family Emergency with proper notification (Ex: Death in immediate family)
  • Court attendance
  • Illness or Injury
  • Doctor/Dentist Appointments
  • Trip (prior approval from Vice Principal)



  1. If a student is expected to be tardy to school, parent/guardian must provide a written excuse to the school office or advisory teacher for that day.
  2. If a student is tardy to school (after 8:00 a.m.), your child reports to the office for a tardy slip.
  3. Excessive tardiness and absences (excused and unexcused) will result in intervention or referral.


  • Tardies are considered excused for the following reasons:
    • Medical/dental appointment that can’t be scheduled before/after school hours
    • Unforeseen emergency (at discretion of administration)



Once arriving at school, all students are expected to remain on campus until the end of the school day. Students arriving by bus are to immediately exit the bus and enter the campus. Students leaving campus without authorization will be referred to the administration for discipline and consequences. In the event a student must leave campus during school hours, an off-campus pass must be obtained from the school’s office. Once a student leaves campus at the end of the school day, they are not allowed to return to campus unless they are participating in a school-sponsored activity.

In order to obtain an off-campus pass, parents/guardians may either call, submit a letter to, or email the school office (email: [email protected] to request a pass prior to pick-up time. Please include your child’s full legal name, reason, and pick-up time when making your request.

A parent, guardian, or an authorized adult (as indicated on the student’s emergency card) must sign-out a student in the front office before a student is allowed to leave campus. Be prepared to present a picture ID. In case of access restriction to a child, inform the school by sending copies of court documents. Students are responsible for all assignments missed due to early dismissal. Please be sure to bring identification
