Request from Kīlauea School to help ease traffic congestion during afternoon student pick-up

Principal Fig Mitchell attended the November KNA meeting and asked for community members to help ease traffic congestion during the afternoon student pick-up time.

If you are NOT picking up a student, please avoid using the portion of Kolo Road fronting Kīlauea School between 1:45 and 2:15 on M, T, Th, F and between 1:00 and 1:30 on Wednesdays.

He also shared, for people with questions regarding why they no longer use the front field for cars to park for pick-up:

  1. Safety: someone got hit in that area during pick up.
  2. It preserves the condition of the play area for the students.
  3. It only takes 15 minutes from the time the bell rings until the last cars pull into the pick-up area and, on average, parents only spend about 8 minutes in the lineup. All in all, it is a much safer and more efficient system.
