News and Announcements

In order to assist students in arriving at school on time in the morning, Roberts Hawaii and the Department of Education have agreed to change the morning pick-up time for four (4) of the five school bus routes. The recent construction at Tripler AMC and the resulting traffic issues (which may continue into October, 2014 for Red Hill and AMR), is the reason we are making the change. Effective Wednesday, August 20, 2014, until the end of the school year, school bus routes HR04B, HR06B, HR13B will be picking up students at 7:20 am. Route HR20 students will be picked up at 7:00 am.
Again, this change will ONLY affect the morning routes. If you have questions or concerns, please contact Mamo Miner at 622-0537.
