The following information is needed for children enrolling in the public schools of Hawaii for the first time:
A birth certificate or equivalent (hospital certificate, baptismal certificate or passport)
Documentation that a Tuberculin (Mantoux) test was done within 12 months before school entrance; A student will not be allowed to enter school unless this requirement has been met.
A health card (Form 14) or its equivalent, on which are recorded a physical examination done within a year from entry, a tuberculin test, and the following immunizations: DPT, oral polio, measles, mumps, and rubella.
(Proof of residence--any current utility bill addressed to the parent-- is required of students entering Pearl Ridge Elementary).
If possible, the above requirements should be met at the time of enrollment. However, should there be some difficulty in getting a doctor's appointment to complete the above, a doctor's statement or an appointment card for the next vaccination will suffice. Only parents or legal guardians are permitted to complete and sign registration and other required school forms.

The school pays close attention to a student's attendance. Students who are in school less than one-half of the school day are marked absent for the entire day.
Parents must notify the school of their child's absence by one of the following ways. You may call the school at 483-7250 by 8:30 a.m. on the day of the absence giving your child's name, room number, teacher, grade and a brief reason for the absence. Or you may send a note to the office stating the reason for the absence.
Tardies students that are not in their classroom at 7:55 a.m. are tardy. They must report to the office for a tardy slip before going to class.
Family vacations should be scheduled during our school intersessions to minimize absence from class.
Students who are chronically tardy or excessively absent will be referred to the Counselors and Administrators for follow up action with parents.
If your child is sick and you would like to request homework from their homeroom, please call the office at 305-9300 by 9:00 a.m. A homework request will be submitted to your child's teacher. Homework can be picked up in the office after school in the "Homework" file cabinet located by the office entrance.

A telephone or written request at least five days prior to a child's last day in school is needed to begin processing a release. The office staff and teachers need ample time to gather necessary information and to prepare a student's release. If possible, please have available the new home address, telephone number, and the name of child's new school.
A parent should come to the office to pick up the release card on child's last day at school. It contains important information, some of it may be confidential and should be handled with care.
Change of Address and or Phone Numbers
Please notify the school whenever there are changes to your address and/or phone numbers. For your child's welfare, it is most important that this data be current so that you can be contacted in case of emergency.
To minimize classroom distractions and interruptions during instruction, phone messages and dropping off of items are for emergencies only. Please discuss after school pick-up arrangements with your child the day before. If items are dropped off at the office, the student must come down during recess to pick it up.
Parents are asked not to "drop in" on their child's classroom. If you wish to arrange a visit toyour child's class, please make prior arrangements with his/her teacher ahead of time. This includes dropping off of treats/goodies for birthdays, parties, etc.
Cellular Phone Policy
Cellular phones have become a problem at PRE. Some of the problems include students text messaging other students during class time; asking to go to the restroom to make calls on their cell phones; cell phones ringing and disrupting the class during the school day; and students snatching phones from each other after school.
In many schools, cellular phones are considered contraband and students are not allowed to have them in their possession at all. However, we do understand that there may be times when parents need to contact their children after school. Therefore, students are allowed to have a cellular phone in their possession under the following stipulations:
While on campus, students’ cell phones must be kept OFF.
While on campus, students’ cell phones must be kept in his/her bag/backpack at ALL times – not in their pocket nor in plain sight.
While on campus, students are not allowed to use their cell phone. This includes before school.
Students should not allow any of their peers to hold on to their cell phone.
Consequences for breaking the above rules: 1st Offense: Teacher or adult staff will confiscate cell phone. Student will
have to pick up the phone from the teacher or school office.
2nd Offense: Cell phone will be confiscated and parent will be contacted. After school, student may pick up the phone from the school office and will be advised of consequences for the 3rd offense.
3rd Offense: Student’s cell phone will be confiscated and parent/guardian will be able to retrieve the phone from the school office.
If there is an emergency and you need to contact your child during the school day, we suggest that you call the school’s office instead of their cellular phone. The office will then relay the message to your child.
