Kahakai hosting preschool class

Beginning in August, Kahakai Elementary School will open a half-day preschool.

Student applicants must be 4 years old by Aug. 1, live within the school boundaries and meet all school entry requirements, indluding TB clearance, physical exam and immunization record. A lottery will be held at 9 a.m. today in the school office to determine entry slots. Student applicants must meet all the above requirements before being considered in the lottery. Parents will be notified of the lottery results.

The deadline has passed to submit completed applications, but students will be accepted if space is available. Contact the school for application packets and more information by calling 327-4313. Applications can be picked up at the school main office.

Library system to update database

The Hawaii State Public Library System’s patron database will undergo a purge of inactive accounts Monday. Inactive accounts are those with expired library cards and no borrowed library material in the past three years, no outstanding items, charges or fees, or those whose card holders are former residents who have relocated from Hawaii.

Patrons who discover their record has been purged can reactivate their card by completing a new library card application form and presenting it with their card and valid identification.
