Summer School FAQs
Hanahau‘oli appreciates your interest in our summer school program. This section contains information and answers to questions frequently asked by parents. We hope this will be helpful to you during the summer school application process.
WHEN IS SUMMER SCHOOL?
Our Summer Program will be held from June 10 through July 19, 2019. There will be no school on June 11 and July 4, in observance of Kamehameha Day and Independence Day.
What are your International Students and Out-of-State Policies for Summer School?
English Proficiency is Required
Attending Hanahau‘oli Summer School can be a formative experience, translating into new ambitions and life-long friendships. Due to the short duration of summer school, we are not able offer an ESL (English as a Second Language) or ELL (English Language Learner) program. Therefore, all international students entering Junior Kindergarten through grade five must have appropriate grade level English proficiency. Appropriate grade level English proficiency is defined as the ability to understand and communicate (listen, speak, read, write) at the appropriate entering grade level. We want to ensure all students have an emotionally and physically safe and enriching summer experience. Should a student demonstrate difficulty communicating or adjusting to the Summer School routines, the School, in its sole discretion, reserves the right to withdraw the student without any refund of tuition.
International families will be asked about their child's current school and grade level, language(s) spoken, English proficiency, and any siblings that may be interested in attending Hanahau‘oli Summer School.
We strongly encourage you and your Summer School student to visit our campus for the Family Orientation Day on June 7, 2019 from 3:00 - 4:00 pm. The visit will allow students and families to learn about the campus and summer school routines and procedures. Summer School teachers will be in their classrooms setting up for the program and you may briefly meet them at this time.

WHAT HEALTH RECORDS DOES Hanahau‘oli REQUIRE?
The State of Hawaii Department of Health requires that all immunizations and physicals must be completed for incoming 4 and 5 year olds, out-of-state students and international students. All of the required immunizations need to be completed BEFORE the first day of school or your child will not be able to attend until all requirements are met. Please remit a copy of your child(ren)’s health record by the end of May.
My child has a peanut (or other food) allergy. What should I do related to their summer school enrollment?
Parents are expected to notify school administration of any allergies their child(ren) may have, including but not limited to peanuts. A Hanahau'oli School Emergency Health Care Plan form must be completed by the parent/caregiver and the child's physician. Please note, Hanahau'oli is not a "peanut-free" school; however, we have designated lunch table(s) for children with food allergies which are situated near other tables in the lunch room. Students with food allergies are strongly encouraged to bring snacks and lunch from home. Sodexo, our Summer School lunch vendor, states "Sodexo does not use peanuts in their food production. While Sodexo takes steps to eliminate the risk of a peanut allergy outbreak, Sodexo cannot guarantee that all of our products have been produced in a nut-free facility and are safe to consume for people with peanut allergies." Parents of students with peanut or any other food allergies are asked to contact Sodexo General Manager Mickey Lasater (firstname.lastname@example.org) for additional information and support related to the school lunch offerings."
WE HAVE HAD A CHANGE OF PLANS AND MY CHILD CANNOT ATTEND SUMMER SCHOOL AFTER ALL – HOW DO I WITHDRAW?
