Monday, August 6, 2018 - 3 p.m. - Hurricane Hector Update for Waimea Middle School 'Ohana: 

We are all reminded by the approach of Hurricane Hector to make basic preparations for our families and school and to keep an eye on the storm's progress.  

 However, at this time, we do not anticipate that Hurricane Hector will impact school and we will start the new year tomorrow - Tues., Aug. 7, 2018 at 8 a.m. as planned.  We urge all students to attend on time and are excited about welcoming everyone back for a great new year of learning and growing.  

 Here is a link to the Central Pacific Hurricane Center webite, which has many "live" links for tracking the storm:

High surf is expected to impact east-facing shores of Hawai'i Island with heights building today through Tuesday and peaking Tuesday night/Wednesday. Surf may reach 15 to 20 feet. 

If conditions change, we will advise families by calls/emails home via "School Connects" and also will post information on our Facebook Page ( ) and website (  You may of course always call the school office too: 887-6090 Ext. 222 between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m.  

Mahalo and please remain safe.
