Aloha Moanalua Middle School Community,
Starting Monday, September 13, 2021, Governor Ige's executive order will be in place.  This requires all visitors to school facilities (ie. Parents, Contractors, visitors) for business taking longer than 10 minutes the need to show proof of Covid 19 vaccination or Negative Covid 19 test results (within the past 72 hours).  Students are exempt from this executive order.
You can either show this by the following:
  • Showing your physical vaccination card
  • Showing a photo or digital copy of your vaccine card
  • Or using the state’s new Hawaii SMART Card app
Mahalo For your flexibility, patience, and understanding.  Mahalo.
Aloha Moanalua Middle School Families,
We will be holding our first Covid 19 Testing on Wednesday, September 22, from 230-330pm in our cafeteria that will be open to MMS students and staff due to the limited test kits we will have on site.  Please check your Jupiter Ed accounts for an email from me.  This is not mandatory.  We just want to do our part to help out.  If you have any questions, please email me in Jupiter.  Mahalo, and be safe out there.

Awesome job families with morning traffic today, it seems that you are all preparing and making great adjustments when dropping off your children in the morning. It will get better. The high times for traffic looks like 7:45am till about 8:05am. #mmsherd #808educate
Mahalo to our families for following our safety protocols during these challenging times. Make sure you do your wellness checks at home, and if your child seems ill, keep them home. #mmsherd #808educate

Traffic Update: (8/6/21)
Great Job Families. We got our heavy traffic done before 3pm today, which is a big difference from yesterday's 325pm.
That's an indicator that you have all made adjustments to picking up your child. We can get better each day.
In the morning we did have a snag with a parked car, but when it was brought to my attention, we took care of that.
Have a great weekend everyone. See you on Monday. Don't forget students Mon. and Tue. We have iReady Assessment.
Good Morning Moanalua Middle. Have a great day. Please Kokua and drive with Aloha, also students don't forget to bring a water bottle so you can be hydrated at school. Be safe everyone. #mmsherd #808educate
Welcome Back Moanalua MS 8th Graders, hope that your orientation went well...
Mahalo Team Huliamahi (this years 8C)
Aloha for driving with Aloha,
I know traffic was a pill this morning, it will get better. With the start of our elementary school this morning, traffic was a lot heavier today for all students and staff. We will get through this together. After a few more days, traffic should be a little better, as all of us adjust our drop off and pick up time.
Remember our ES next door starts at 8am and we start at 830am. Have a beautiful day. Drive with Aloha. #mmsherd #808educate
Awesome day 7th graders.
I hope you enjoyed your 7th grade orientation, the virtual assembly, fun activities, scavenger hunt, rotation to classes, meeting and visiting important people and places around campus.
Get some rest tonight, memorize your schedule, get ready to start school on Thursday, at 830am.
We will start the day once again with your Advisory class.
Go Mustangs.
