Kealakehe High announces fee payment, schedule pick up

Kealakehe High School enrolled students may pay fees and pick up a copy of their class schedule in the school’s library from 7 to 10 a.m. Tuesday or from 3 to 7:30 p.m. July 23. Advance schedules were issued to currently enrolled students so the available schedule will be a copy reflecting no changes. For newly enrolled students who completed a course request form when they registered, a schedule will be available to pick up. A counselor may be available but only to address general questions — not to make schedule changes. If there’s a question as to whether the student is enrolled, call 327-4300, ext. 2448.
