These can include a release packet with an unofficial transcript or latest report card, and for special education students, Individual Education Plan.
The DOE works in conjunction with the Department of Health to ensure students meet key health and immunization requirements. By the first day of school, all students entering school in Hawai‘i for the first time must have:
A completed student health record (Form 14) that includes:
Physical examination (PE)
All required immunizations
A signed statement or a medical appointment card from your child's doctor to prove that you child is in the process of completing missing immunizations or the PE.
Students who have not completed these requirements by the first day of school will not be allowed to attend school until these requirements are met. Please read this letter from the Department of Health for parents and guardians.
If your child requires emergency rescue medications or other daily/routine medications, please fill out this form and bring to the school office.
Students transferring to Ali‘iolani from a public school in Hawai‘i must present to our office the release card (Form 211) which was issued by the releasing school. Students transferring from a non-public school in Hawai‘i or from any out-of-state school should present a release card, report card or any information that would facilitate registration and placement.
Please send a written request or telephone at least three days before the child(ren)'s last day in school. This will enable the office staff to secure the necessary information and prepare a release card for your child. Please give your new address, telephone number and the name of the new school, if possible. We prefer having a parent come for the card on the child's last day of school since it contains information which should not be lost.
