Kaua’i High’s new school year meeting set for Thursday

Parents and guardians of Kaua’i High School students are invited to attend an informational meeting Thursday evening to discuss school rules, student activities and academic standards.

The meeting is geared toward parents and guardians of first-time KHS students but all are invited, said Parent-Community-Networking-Center facilitator Shayda Marciel. Students will receive similar information during the first days of school.

Kaua’i High’s fee payments are on Monday, Aug. 11 for 11th and 12th graders, and Tuesday, Aug. 12 for 9th and 10th graders. The mandatory student activity fee is as follows:

9th grade, $4; 10th grade, $5; 11th grade, $6; and 12th grade, $8. A mandatory student government fee is $6 for all grades.

Kaua’i High School has been focusing on creating a safe campus by making sure that emergency procedures are in order, Marciel said. She added that vice principal Erik Burkman is spearheading safety procedures at KHS.

Kaua’i High School students have been practicing safety drills and lockdowns to prepare for possible incidents similar to those happening on the Mainland: For example, if a student pulls a gun or a bomb threat is received.

School staff will present information regarding attendance policies, athletics, student organizations, discipline and rules and academic standards. Staff will also discuss fee payment and class schedule pickup.

Those scheduled to attend include: School Principal Linda T. Smith; Vice Principals Erik Burkman and Penny Vess; PCNC Facilitator Shayda Marciel; and representatives from PAIRS PTSA (Partners In Support of Raider Students).

The meeting will be held Thursday, Aug. 8, in the school cafeteria, from 6:30 — 7:30 p.m. Parents and guardians should park in marked stalls fronting Lala Road. For more information, please call the PCNC office at 274-3176 or the school office at 274-3160.
