Pearl Harbor Kai Elementary School believes that a uniform policy and dress code is a positive contributing factor to helping students focus on their learning. It fosters student achievement and school discipline. The importance of having a uniform policy and dress code will support the success of all students academically, emotionally and socially. In order for PHKai to continue to be a safe place for learning, all students are expected to come to school following our uniform policy. This policy applies at all times on campus, on field trips, and other school sponsored activities (unless otherwise permitted by school or teacher).
Solid Light Blue Polo Style Shirt and Dark Blue Pants/Shorts/Skirts/Jumpers/Gym Shorts are available at various vendors to include Sears, Children’s Place, and the NEX. Blue PHKai school Drifit Shirts are available for purchase at Pueo Print (808) 784-0758.
The school-issued ID is considered part of the uniform and is to be worn daily. The school will issue the initial Student ID at no cost to students, however, a replacement will cost $3.00.
The Pearl Harbor Kai uniform policy consists of the following:
Items Not Permitted:
Should a student be in violation of our uniform policy, the child will be sent to the health room for a change of clothes. Parent/Guardian will be called to bring a uniform should the school not have a uniform for that child to use for the day. If there are repeat offenders of the uniform policy inclusive of student ID, discipline action may be taken according to Hawaii Administrative Rules, Chapter 19, Student Misconduct, and Discipline.
*Exceptions will be made for those with medical needs verified in writing by a physician.
Students must wear their uniforms daily. School spirit or special days will be announced in advance. (Appropriate clothing must be worn.) Please check the school bulletin/flyers/website for information.
Some uniform examples:
Parents wishing to exempt their child from the uniform policy may request to opt-out. Parents should meet with the Principal to discuss the uniform policy and nature of the objection. The discussion will also include the acceptable student attire. Exemptions are valid for the current school year, and must be renewed at the beginning of each school year.
