09/19/2023 KVIKS News Bulletin



Attention Vikings. This is Vice Principal Trimble with an important update to our campus.

As we move forward with construction on campus we want to ensure everyone is safe!

Students with parking permits must enter the campus by the top gate by Mr. Ramos’ class.

There is to be no foot traffic in front of the cafeteria where construction is ongoing all day. This is for your safety Vikings! Stay away from all construction areas on campus and pay close attention to the signs posted. All foot traffic between upper and lower campus should occur between the cafeteria and the school garden by Mr. Paopao’s class.

In addition to the construction in the Library and Cafeteria, we will also be working on the Main Office. 

All office services will be conducted at the rear entry, the front of the office will be closed starting Monday. My office will change from the main office to A-4 down by the pit while this construction takes place.

As with other areas, please follow the directions on the signs to access the area in the back if you need to use the main office.

And one last reminder VIKS! When being dropped off in the morning, please remind your families to “Please Pull Forward” as much as possible when being dropped off. This will ensure there is not a backup on Waianuenue Ave and eases traffic into our school.

Thanks again VIKS, and see you around!
