BOE Competitive Food Sales Policy

In accordance with the Board of Education Competitive Food Sales Policy #6810, "The sale of food to students in all elementary and secondary schools shall be limited to the School Breakfast Program, School Lunch Program, approved cafeteria supplementary food items, and food prepared by the culinary arts classes as part of their educational program. Schools shall not permit the sale of other foods to students from the beginning of the school day to the end of the school day, except certain beverages through vending machines and all-school events approved by the principal. Beverage selections from school vending machines that are available to students shall contain only healthy beverages as deemed appropriate by the Department of Education. Beverages, other than water, shall not be sold during meal periods."

There can be no competitive food sales from the time our cafeteria starts to serve breakfast (7:15 a.m.) until the end of the school day. A competitive food sale item on campus is any food item not purchased from the school cafeteria. Rewards such as pizza parties, sodas, ethnic food festivals and ice cakes would fall under this category. Additionally, staff members are prohibited from purchasing outside food (fast food, plate lunches, etc.) for students. The delivery of outside food by parents is also strongly discouraged

 

Be Aware Of Strangers

Dear Parents and Guardians,

We want to inform you about an incident that occurred in our neighborhood yesterday afternoon.

A male Kapolei Middle School student reported that while walking home yesterday afternoon, a white van approached him.  Student ran home to report incident.  The parents immediately filed a report with the Honolulu Police Department.

The safety of your children is of the utmost importance to us. We are sending this letter to you as a precaution, and to encourage you to speak to your child about “stranger danger,” and how to keep safe when coming to school and walking home. Listed below are some safety measures that will assist you in your discussion.

  •  Stay away from strangers. Do not talk or take anything from them.
  • Don’t go anywhere with someone you don’t know. Never accept a ride from a stranger.
  • Stay more than an arm’s reach from strangers. Seek help immediately from a trusted adult if you are approached by a stranger.
  • Use the buddy system; avoid walking anywhere alone.
  • If a stranger grabs you, do whatever it takes to stop the stranger, including yelling for help.
  • Report any suspicious activity to a trusted adult.
  • Be aware of your surroundings and let others know where you will be and what time you will be back.

We appreciate your help as we work together to keep all of our students safe.  If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call me at (808) 693-7025.

Thank you,

Bruce Naguwa

Surveillance Cameras on Campus
  
Over the past several months, Kapolei Middle School has experienced a rash of vandalism against school property. We reported over ten incidents of individuals coming on school property during the night and breaking our windowpanes. Over forty windowpanes have been damaged during this time period.
   As a result of this senseless act of vandalism, Kapolei Middle School will invest in surveillance cameras to improve the safety and security of our school. The intent of the use of video surveillance cameras is to deter outsiders from entering our campus for inappropriate purposes, and to deter students from inappropriate behaviors.
   The surveillance cameras will be situated in areas that are considered public places - exterior of buildings and other open areas on campus. The video tapes will be erased or written over within ten (10) calendar days of the recording unless an incident is recorded that involves the violation of law or of Chapter 8-19 rules.
   The surveillance cameras will be used for school monitoring and safety. Hopefully, the surveillance cameras will prove to be a deterrent to help prevent incidents from occurring on our campus. This senseless act of vandalism is costly to the State of Hawaii, and diminishes the beauty of our school.
   If there are any questions or concerns, please contact Mr. Bruce Naguwa, at 693-7025. Thank you very much for your support.
