    King Kamehameha III Elementary School is currently soliciting for new members to join our School Community Council. We have openings for parent and community positions.The School Community Councils are forums for exchanging ideas about how to improve student achievement among the school's stakeholders: principals, teachers, school staff, parents and community members. The primary role of a member is to participate in the process that ensures that the needs of all students are specifically addressed in the overall education plan for the school.
      Anyone interested in serving on King Kamehameha III 's SCC board can submit their name in the school office or by calling Claire Tillman at 662-3955.  Members must commit to attending quarterly meetings during the school year.

Dear Faculty, Staff, Parents/Guardians:


AHERA requires our school to notify the faculty, staff, parents, and guardians of the presence and status of asbestos containing materials in our school buildings.  The law further requires a management plan based upon the findings of the initial inspection.

We have conducted the required six months surveillance in June, 2017 and will complete the next surveillance in December, 2017.

The results of the recently completed surveillance indicate there have been no changes in the condition of the asbestos containing materials in our school buildings.

A copy of the inspection and the Asbestos Management Plan is available for your review in the school's Administrative Office or at the Environmental Service Unit of the Department of Education (DOE).  Please contact Mr. Gary Bignami at (808) 784-5067 for additional information.

 Safety News and Reminders

Aloha Parents and Guardians:

We welcome you to join us at school, and ask for your assistance as we strive to provide a safe learning environment for your children.

  • ·         Our campus is open for students beginning at 7:00 am.  Do NOT drop off children prior to this time.  They will be unsupervised.
  • ·         When dropping off and picking up students, use the school loading zone on Front Street or the parking lot across from the school.  Do NOT pull into or block “reserved” staff parking stalls on Front Street, or drive onto campus.
  • ·         In order to help us maintain order and security we ask that you exit the school grounds 10 minutes after the beginning bell rings.  (7:45)
  • ·         In an effort to prevent disruptions to instruction, we request that you arrive at the end of the day no more than 10 minutes before dismissal.  (1:05 on Wednesday, 1:50 all other days)
  • ·         Please stay off of classroom lanais and steps while waiting for your students.
  • ·         In order to help us maintain order and security we ask that you exit the school grounds 10 minutes after the ending bell rings.  (1:15 on Wednesday, 2:00 all other days) 
  • ·         We do not provide supervision on our playgrounds after school is dismissed.  Our toys are designed for specific ages and sizes.  We ask that you discourage your children from playing on them before and after school.
  • ·         Guests, visitors, and volunteers are always welcome.  Advanced planning will make this a smoother process.  Please remember to check in at the office prior to reporting to a classroom.
  • ·         Please use the crossing guard and Front Street entrances when entering and exiting the school grounds.  Use extreme caution if walking on the Access Road between Holy Innocents church and our campus.  This is a one lane road that is used by delivery trucks and staff vehicles.
  • ·         Please use only open gates to enter and exit campus.  Do NOT climb over, or lift students over closed gates and fences.  The few minutes you might save are not worth the potential risk of injury that may occur.
  • ·         The Bus Loading Zone on Canal Street is for busses only. Please do not use this area to enter or exit the campus.

No Ka Pono O Na Haumana – It’s all about the students.
