School Policies and Procedures
- Uniform logos should be visible and are required daily except Friday (dress down day). Additionally, during the colder months, students may wear a button-down or zipper jacket, hoodie, or long sleeve shirt over their school uniform. School uniforms must not be altered in any way. Covering a dress code violation is not acceptable, i.e., wearing a jacket over a tank top.
- Students must wear their ID badge around their neckline by clipping the badge to their shirt collar or lanyard (near the neckline.) There is a $5.00 charge for ID replacement.

Student ID Badges
As a means to promote safety and security, ID badges must be worn by students at all times while on campus. ID badges must be worn and easily visible at all times. Students who deface their IDs will need to purchase replacement IDs at a cost of $5.00 each. Students who repeatedly do not have their Student ID will need to purchase a new ID at the cost of $5.00
Registered students with no pass in the morning, may ride the bus to school but must report directly to the office to obtain a pass for the ride home. Failure to obtain a pass for a ride home will result in being denied entrance on the bus at the end of the school day. Students denied a ride home must report to the office for assistance. Having to get a pass after school may result in missing the school bus, so make every attempt to get a pass before school starts, or during recess or lunch.
Internet & Technology Use
At Wahiawa Middle School, we expect every student to be an effective and ethical user of technology. Every year, students are informed about the proper use of technology and the Internet. This information is also included in the Technology Responsible Use Guide and accompanying acceptance Form that every student and parent/guardian is required to sign as part of the enrollment process. The use of computers and the Internet is a privilege provided to our students; in turn, we expect them to use it appropriately. If a student is involved in an incident related to the improper use of technology, the student may have their computer/Internet privileges suspended for a period of time. Repeated infractions or serious offenses may result in detention, suspension, and/or legal action. If an incident involves a Chapter 19-related offense, technology privileges may be revoked immediately without prior warning at the discretion of the Administration, and the student may face additional consequences.
