Kindergarten – Grade 1 Summer School, including Afternoon Fun, are located in the Omidyar K – 1 Neighborhood. Entrance to the dropoff/pickup area for students is via Upper Manoa Gate off of Manoa Road.

The Summer School orientation for the K – 1 programs is an event for students and their families. Upon arrival at your scheduled time – kindergarten at 4 p.m. and first grade at 5:30 p.m. – you may walk your child up to their classrooms. You will have the opportunity to meet teachers before returning to the Community Room, where the informational meeting for parents will be held. While in the classrooms the students be introduced to their teachers and classmates, and have a short tour of the K – 1 Neighborhood. This event is planned to provide a smooth start to the Summer session which begins on Monday, June 19.

Attendance

If your student is going to be absent, please call the Academy Summer School Office.

Summer Absence Policy

Since Summer School packs so much into a limited time period, we expect regular and punctual attendance, especially in credit-bearing courses. There are two types of absences: Approved and Not Approved.

  • Approved Absences
    Absences for illness, medical or dental appointments, or funerals are subject to approval by the Academy Summer School Director. The number of such absences allowed during a Summer School course is determined on a case-by-case basis by the Academy Summer School Director and the Dean.
  • Not-Approved Absences
    Absences for family trips, sports trips, drivers license tests, job interviews, employment, summer camp, errands, performances and similar conflicts will not be approved as excused absences from class.

Students will fail a course if they accrue more than two “Not Approved” absences in either a 5-week or 6-week course. The School reserves the right to request a doctor’s note to substantiate any absence from class unless previously approved by the Director.

Attire Policies

The attire policies during Summer School are identical to those in force during the regular school year. Details are under "Dress" below.

Book Lists

Book lists for Summer School courses are available through MBS Direct.

Laptop Pickup

Current Punahou students who are taking Academy Summer School credit courses requiring a laptop will keep their school-year computer until the end of Summer School.

Laptop pickup for Academy students who are new to Punahou and taking Summer School courses may pick up their laptops on Friday, June 9 from 811 a.m. or on Tuesday, June 13 from noon2 p.m.

Policies and Important Information

Absences

All registered children are expected to begin attending school on the first day. If special circumstances exist which prevent attendance on the first day of school, the Summer School Office must be notified in writing.

A student should not miss more than one week of school regardless of when the absence may occur. See Grades 9 – 12 section for specifics regarding Academy absence policy. Attendance is taken daily at 8 a.m.

To report absences during Summer School, please call the appropriate number or email . You may also call before or after school hours and leave the necessary information on the voice mail for the following day. Please call each office relating to a student’s classes. If you know of an upcoming absence, please send a note to the Summer School Office at least a day in advance. Parents may be contacted to verify absences.

If your child is tardy, please follow the guidelines for the appropriate grade level prior to sending your child to class.

  • K – 1: Parent must take child to the Wilcox office to sign in.

  • 2 – 3: Parent must take child to the grades 2 – 3 Office in the Kosasa Neighborhood to sign in prior to walking the child to class.

  • 4 – 8: Student must report to the Summer School Office in Bishop Hall to sign in prior to heading to class.

If your child will be taken out of class during the day, please follow the guidelines for the appropriate grade level.

  • K – 1: Parent must sign child out, and in at Wilcox office and escort child to class.

  • 2 – 3: Parents must sign out and in at the grades 2 – 3 Office in the Kosasa Neighborhood and escort child to class.

If you plan to take a trip or leave your child with relatives or friends, please let the office know your arrangements so that we will have appropriate information in case of an emergency. Parents of K – 1 students should also contact the Wilcox Office.

Return from Absence Due to Illness: A readmission process may be required by Punahou School depending on the reason for illness. Students must be fever-free for 24 hours before returning to school.

Citizenship, Guidance and Discipline

Children are expected to function within the guidelines of courtesy, safety and respect for people and property. Expectations are clearly defined at the beginning of each session, with increasing self-discipline expected as children grow and develop.

Children experiencing difficulty in school will be counseled by their teacher or administrator. Junior School counselors may assist through evaluation or observation, making recommendations to administrators, teachers and parents.

Kindergarten – Grade 5
Discipline is handled in an age-appropriate manner with the intent to approach disciplinary situations as educational opportunities. Serious infractions, such as stealing, or acts of physical or verbal aggression may lead to citizenship probation, referral for professional counseling, and/or suspension or expulsion from Summer School.

Grades 6 – 8
In cases of minor infractions or behavior disturbances, teachers and administrators may counsel, warn, admonish students; inform parents; assign the student to detention; or provide other appropriate consequences to be determined by the Summer School faculty and staff.

Serious disciplinary cases are handled by the Supervisors. Such cases may include:


  • Stealing or other forms of dishonesty;

  • Possession, purchase, sale or being under the influence of drugs or alcohol;

  • Vandalism;

  • Truancy or repeated tardiness;

  • Continuous disruptive behavior;

  • Reckless endangering;

  • Acts of physical or verbal aggression or intimidation;

  • Cheating/plagiarism;

  • Lying;

  • Violating Responsible Use Policy.



Methods of dealing with serious infractions include counseling with students and parents, referral for professional counseling, citizenship probation, or suspension or expulsion from Summer School.

Grades 9 – 12
Punahou is committed to education in its broadest sense, including character, moral and ethical education. We therefore believe that Punahou should create an environment in which adults and students alike develop the capacity for moral decision-making based upon clear values. The Academy is committed to maintaining a campus community that acknowledges the worth and dignity of all students, faculty, staff, parents and visitors; that is actively committed to both real and perceived personal safety; that respects the property of others; that pursues learning with complete academic integrity; and that is free of alcohol and drugs and people under their influence.

We expect that our students and their families actively and thoughtfully embrace these values. In order to develop sound judgment, an individual needs to learn that actions have consequences. Discipline in this context functions to maintain and reinforce desirable behavior and restrain undesirable forms of behavior. Established standards will be reinforced by a system of discipline in which cases are handled on an individual basis.

Faculty and administration will enforce appropriate consequences with students who demonstrate inappropriate behavior. A wide range of actions can be taken in response to undesirable behavior including (but not limited to): warnings, demerits, work assignments, withdrawn off-campus privileges, eligibility and expulsion.

Although very rare, sometimes a pattern of behavior does not lend itself to the discipline process. Students whose pattern of conduct is determined to be troublesome to others and intractable may be dismissed at the end of the school year. Any intentional act inconsistent with these values is considered a serious breach of trust and may result in disciplinary action. Disciplinary jurisdiction is normally restricted to the Punahou campus, its immediate environs and the location of any official School function (e.g., athletic contests, school-sponsored trips, social events and extracurricular activities). Jurisdiction may be extended beyond the boundaries of the School and school day when, in the judgment of the administration, student misbehavior merits such consideration.

Dress

We understand that dress choices depend on individual taste and values. Our dress code supports good grooming, neat and appropriate attire; we do not allow the outlandish, sloppy or provocative. By enrolling at Punahou, students agree to dress in a way that is appropriate to their educational task. If, in the opinion of any faculty member or administrator, a student does not dress appropriately, he or she may be asked to change to appropriate attire, may be sent home, and parents may be called.

Kindergarten – Grade 5
In the early elementary grades the child’s day includes a range of learning activities from outdoor play, seatwork, working on the floor or out on lanais, and even garden projects. Because of this, children should wear neat, clean, comfortable attire that is modest and loose fitting.


  • On field trips and PE days appropriate shoes or slippers are required. Footwear is optional on other days. Wheelie shoes present a safety concern and should not be worn to school. Platform type footwear should not exceed 1 inch in height.

  • Clothing should be free of offensive language or imagery, holes, tears, rips and not be ragged in appearance.

  • Undergarments and midriffs should be covered.

  • Dresses, shorts or skirts must be at least thumb-tip length. (This is measured by having the child place their arms at their side. Hemlines should reach the thumb tip or longer.)

  • All tops must have a collar or crew neckline. They must be long enough to easily tuck into shorts, pants or skirts. Students will be asked to change or cover clothing that is overly revealing or tight-fitting.

  • Extreme hairstyles, including hair dyed unnatural colors, cut in patterns or mohawks are not allowed.

  • Hats may be worn outdoors.

Parents may want to consider having a pair of shoes kept at school for PE activities and field trips. The PE teachers also recommend that children wear sunscreen daily.

Grades 6 – 8
Punahou expects students to wear clothing that is neat, clean and appropriate in a school setting. Clothing that interferes with that goal is deemed inappropriate. A student’s presentation should be intentionally consistent with the following expectations:

  • Clothing may not be overly revealing. Tight fitting bottoms such as leggings, jeggings or yoga pants should be worn with tops long enough to ensure modesty.

  • Tops must have modest necklines and cover the shoulders and midriff. They must be long enough to easily tuck into shorts, pants or skirts. Strapless, spaghetti straps, tank tops, halter tops, racerback styles are not appropriate unless covered by an outer garment such as a shirt, sweater or jacket.

  • Shorts, dresses or skirts must be at least fingertip length.

  • No portion of a student’s underwear may be visible.

  • Clothing with offensive images or language is not permitted.

  • Hats may not be worn inside.

  • Footwear is required at all times.

Grades 9 – 12 (Academy)
Punahou expects Academy students to wear clothing that is neat, clean and appropriate in a school setting. Clothing that interferes with that goal is deemed inappropriate and in violation of the policy. A student’s presentation should be intentionally consistent with the following expectations. Appearance that is too revealing through excessive exposure (torso, shoulders, thighs), will not be allowed.

Criteria for Appropriate Attire
The following criteria apply to all clothing choices:

  • Clothing may not be overly revealing.

  • All shirts must be long enough to be tucked in. Any exposure of midriff (even when the student is wearing a backpack, crouching, bending over, etc.) will be considered a violation.

  • Shirts must cover the shoulders and have necklines higher than the upper reaches of the student’s armpits. For example, strapless, spaghetti straps, tank tops, halter tops, racerback styles are not appropriate unless covered by an outer garment such as a shirt, sweater or jacket.

  • Clothing must be at least fingertip-length.

  • No portion of a student’s underwear may be visible.

  • Clothing with offensive images or language is not permitted.

  • Footwear is required of all students.

Enforcement
Offenses will be reported to deans, who will assign demerits. A first violation will be considered a warning; one demerit is assigned for the next violation and it escalates to five demerits for disrespect/ disobedience. These demerits may be worked off. Students who establish a pattern of violations may have the privilege of working off demerits revoked, and habitual disregard for this policy may result in disciplinary action. If in doubt whether clothing is approved, students can consult with deans or members of the Attire Review Committee. Deans’ decisions on the appropriateness of attire will be considered final. This policy is in effect on campus on school days during the hours of 7:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. It is also in effect during Summer School.

Attire: Physical Education
Students are required to wear PE uniforms (shorts and T-shirt) and athletic shoes. Only shoes that have non-marking soles are allowed for use on PE facility floors and tennis courts. For swimming units, students wear their own swimsuit or swim shorts.

Family Orientations

We encourage you to bring your child to campus for a family orientation. This is particularly useful for those who are unfamiliar with campus. For Kindergarten – Grade 1, the orientation will include details and materials for dropoff and pickup beginning with the first day of Summer School. K – 1 families should bring their supplies with them on Orientation Day.

The orientations provide an opportunity to visit classroom locations, playgrounds and dropoff/pickup points. After a brief presentation, campus tours will be led by teaching aides who are part of our summer staff. Teachers will not be present that day.
