There seems to be a question on whether students can park on the right side of Waianuenue Avenue on school days before 8:00 AM. We know for sure you cannot park on the left side coming down Waianuenue Avenue as it is one way traffic. So this announcement is to let you know, NO, you cannot park on the right side either. Here are the signs seen on both side of the street. In talking to a police officer, a ticket will be issued should you do so.

KVIKS will be back after these messages.

Attention Class of 2026! Do you want to show off your creativity and love for our class? Well, here's your chance! We are excited to announce the Class of 2026 T-Shirt Design Competition! 

This event is all about promoting class pride and student involvement. We want YOU to be a part of the process! Whether you're an artist or not, we encourage all students to participate. The competition will take place from May 1st to May 7th, giving you plenty of time to come up with your best design.

The winning design will be featured on a limited edition Class of 2026 merch item and the winner will receive a free Class T-Shirt for next year! 

So, get creative! Remember, the design must be based on our class mascot which is the black and gold tigers. You can create your design on paper or through the custom ink website, both of which can be found on the handout provided during STARS. Details about how to submit your design will be included in the handout.

If you're interested in being a part of the judging committee, come to our class council meeting on May 4th. And don't forget to follow our Instagram page @hilohigh2026 for more updates and information.
