***NEW FOOD SERVICE SOFTWARE SYSTEM***

Aloha Parents,
In mid-February, Moanalua Middle School will be transitioning into a new, meal software system. The Department of Education has contracted with PrimeroEdge/School Café, which will provide accessibility and real-time updates throughout the day for accurate information. Parents will be able to stay on top of their child’s account balance, view purchase history, receive low balance alerts, and will also have the option to pay for meals on line (a 5% transaction fee will be assessed). More information will be disseminated once the new system is implemented and ready for activation.
Unfortunately, with this new system, Family Accounts will no longer be allowed to be linked together. Effective January 25th, your children’s accounts will need to be separated. Unless you decide otherwise and inform the front office, monies in linked accounts will be equally divided. Please note that the maximum limit for each individual account is $150.00.
Should you have any questions concerning this matter, please feel free to contact me at (808) 305-1290.
Thank you for your kind attention and understanding to this matter.

Mahalo, Shirley Amundson, Office Clerk

Applications for Geographic Exceptions for SY 2017-18

Moanalua Middle School will accept Geographic Exception (GE) Request applications for school year 2017-18 from January 1, 2017 to March 1, 2017. In accordance with Section 8-13-7, a chance selection or lottery will be held on March 3, 2017 if the number of applications exceed the number of available spaces. It is important to remember that a new GE application must be submitted for a student who is interested in moving from the elementary school to middle school. For example, if you presently live outside of the Moanalua geographic area, have a child in the 6th grade attending a complex elementary school on a GE, and are interested in your child attending Moanalua Middle School next year, a new GE application must be submitted to Moanalua Middle School. However, if your child already attends Moanalua Middle School on an approved GE and wishes to continue here, a new GE application will not be required.
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING:
**In order to distribute the finalized GE application, the MMS Office will accept only hard copy applications that come with attached carbon copies. Please visit any school office to get these hard copy GE applications.
**We are unable to give any status update of your GE application before the March 2nd lottery date. Notification letters are scheduled to be sent out the second week of April.

PLEASE CONSIDER THESE TRAFFIC ALTERNATIVES

Aloha. As you may know, our traffic situation has been getting worse due to the security entrance gate to Tripler Army Medical Center. We understand that the drive in the morning to drop off your child has become a difficult, more time-consuming task, and we would like to offer a few suggestions to help parents and students get to school simpler, faster, and safer. Please click on this headline to access maps for the following options:
Alternate Route to East/West bound entrance to Moanalua Freeway via Jarrett White
Alternate Route East/West bound entrance to Moanalua Freeway via Ala Mahamoe
Thank you very much for considering these traffic options and for your continued support. Together, we can make Moanalua Middle School a safer place for everyone.
