🛫IMPORTANT: Student Travel🛬

Student travelers must follow all applicable state and county rules at the time of the trip, including compliance with any required COVID-19 testing or quarantine periods. The Department’s protocol for students who travel out-of-state must comply with the following four options to return to school:

  1. Be fully vaccinated before the start of out-of-state travel and show proof of vaccination to the school.

  2. If participating in the Safe Travels Pre-Travel Test program or if under 5 years of age, obtain a COVID-19 test after returning to Hawaii and show proof of both the pre- and post-travel test results to the school (if the traveler is under 5 years of age, the adult traveling companion must show proof of a negative pre-travel test result).

  3. Quarantine for ten (10) days after returning to Hawaii.

  4. Provide the school with proof of a COVID-19 diagnosis obtained during out-of-state travel and return is allowed upon completion of the 10-day isolation period, no fever for at least 24 hours without the use of medication, and symptoms resolving (i.e., no COVID-19 test or quarantine required).

Schools may request documentation of COVID-19 vaccination, negative test results or diagnosis and/or a travel itinerary. If health information is provided, it must be stored like a medical record. If documentation is not provided, the student who traveled out of state must wait for 10 days after returning to Hawaii before returning to school campus.


Please follow these guidelines to assure a safe and healthy return to school.

Any questions please call the school office.
