Dear Parents and Guardians                                                                                           

Creating and sustaining a culture so that all students are Educated (toward their personal goals), Engaged (in their learning at High School), and Empowered (for their future dreams) is the Vision at Kauai High.  Please take a look at our improved Web Site www.kauaihigh.org  as communicating electronically with the wider community will hopefully Educate, Engage and Empower based on the information contained.  The KHS Web site now contains college scholarship information under the ‘counselor’ tab, has links to teacher email, has athletic day by day events and then scores recorded under the ‘athletics’ tab.  ‘Daily Announcements’ link located on the home page right side bar, will update everyone as to upcoming events/ deadlines and of course the lunch menu.  Please take a look!

We congratulate our recent science fair winners who took 1st, 3rd, 5th and 6th place at the District Science Fair.  All students will soon be participating in the State Science Fair and our 1st place winner will go to the International Science Fair next month.

 We are emphasizing that each student must:

o   attend class every day , not skipping any periods

o   be on time every day to every class  

o   actively participate every day in each class

Engaged students attend school on a regular basis and do not miss any periods during the school day. All families can check their student’s absences by looking on the report card.

We are noticing more and more students tardy to class; this interrupts the flow of a classrooms education plan as students arriving late take time to settle into their seats.   Our bell system gives students 5 minutes to get to their next class; this is adequate time if the students start moving at the first ‘warning’ bell.  Starting after Spring Break any student who is observed by security or administration being tardy to class (without a pass) will receive an immediate consequence.  Honestly, we will not ‘see’ every tardy student and  teachers will continue to be vigilant about recording tardies on their daily  attendance logs and reporting any student with more than 3 tardies for an after school detention. 

We congratulate our students for actively wearing their ID badges every day from the moment they step foot on campus until they leave campus.  This improves the safe and secure environment as every individual is identified.  If there were ever an emergency and a student was unable to communicate; we would know who they were; could look up essential medical and contact information.  Security is checking for ID badges/ school shirts when students are outside of class with Teachers making sure the rules are enforced inside of classrooms during academic time.
