Opt-out Form & Opt-Out FAQ's
  • Only Parents/Guardians may sign the opt out form. Form must be downloaded, then either hand delivered or mailed to Kaiser High School.
  • If you do opt out, it will be for the entire Semester 2 (Quarters 3 & 4), unless the state moves into the GREEN zone. If that happens, everyone will be able to return to school. At the moment, Oʻahu is in the ORANGE zone. 
  • You may opt out at a later time (ie. cases worsen and you're not comfortable), however, your form must be received before transitioning to fully online.
