Student-Family-Teacher-Staff Safety is #1 Priority!

This is a picture of the magnet WMS gave all families at Gear Up! at the start of the 2021-2022 School Year. It depicts the 3 mitigation strategies that are among the best ways to keep everyone safe:

1- Wash your hands or hand sanitize frequently.

2- Wear a mask when on campus though this is now optional.

3- Stay home when sick.

Complete current Hawai'i DOE COVID-19 Health & Safety Guidelines as of 8/15/22.

100% Attendance is our goal - please help us meet this goal!

ATTENDANCE POLICY

Good attendance is critical to student success. Also, it’s the law that every parent/guardian is responsible for every child under their care and supervision to receive adequate education and attend school. Waimea Middle School expects 95% attendance, which is a goal used by the state to foster academic progress. We recognize children may occasionally not be able to attend school because of illness and we do not want children who are sick or injured to attend. We also recognize family emergencies. However, we urge families to please avoid scheduling appointments, trips or activities that impact regular on-time attendance for the full school day.

Families must report absences daily with a phone call and a written note when the student returns to school. School Messenger calls go out at 9 AM for students that are absent to keep families informed.


Please note: Three (3) days of absences within a 30 day period are considered “chronic” absenteeism. After five (5) days of absences, a letter may be sent to the parent/guardians. After ten (10) days of absences, a court petition may be filed.

Families May Now Request Text Messaging Service

Families may now opt in to receive text messages from our School Messenger system about school closings, events, safety alerts, etc.

It's very easy to do: Just send a text message from your cell phone, saying "Y" or "Yes" to our school's short code number: 67587. That's it. You can opt out at any time by simply replying to one of our messages with "Stop." Your information in safe and will never be given or sold to anyone else.

If you need assistance, please call the office.
