Early Release

If you are requesting to have your child leave campus early, please send a note to the front office on the morning of the release. Include the following information:

  • The child's legal first and last name.
  • The date and time he/she will be leaving.
  • Name and relationship of the person the child will be leaving with.
  • Parent/guardian's name and phone number for verification.
  • Reason for early release.

Have your child bring the note to the office before school starts. Your child will be given a pass stating the time he/she should report to the office.

If you are picking up your child due to an emergency, please be aware that delays may occur due to verifcation of guardianship and/or locating your child.

The person picking up the child must come in to the office to sign the child out. You will be required to show a photo ID.

The person picking up the child must be listed on the student's emergency card. If they are not, verification will be made before the child is released.


All visitors and parents must sign in at the front office and obtain a visitor's pass before entering campus grounds. If you are requesting to see a student, you must present a picture ID. To ensure the safety of your child, verifications will be made before the student is summoned to the office.

No Left Turn

Please note the No Left Turn signs entering and exiting HIS during the morning and afternoon hours. Traffic on Hoolaulea Street is very heavy during these times and creates a hazardous situation when trying to make the left turn. Thank you!
