Aloha Vikings!

This is your K-V-I-K-S Morning Bulletin. My name is Keyna and here are your announcements for Thursday, August 29th, 2019!

Student Parking Lot - Off Limits

Students are reminded that the area designated as First Come First Serve Student Parking runs from the exit gate of our campus to the upper gate at the top of campus.  

All numbered parking stalls at Hilo High School are assigned to faculty and staff members.  After first submitting a “Hilo High School Student Parking Application” and receiving a student parking pass, students may utilize the Student Parking Stalls on the upper campus across the school cafeteria on a first come, first served basis.  Students who park illegally in any parking stall may have their cars cited and/or towed away at the registered owner’s expense. Public parking stalls are located along Waianuenue Avenue after the one way traffic pattern ends at 8:00am.

Once a student's vehicle is parked, they should expeditiously exit their vehicle and the parking area.  As per school policy, the parking lot is off-limits and students are not allowed to sit in and around parked cars or the parking lot(s) at any time.
