Uniform, IDs, and Safety


We continue to enforce dress code for safety and identification.  Although our campus is considered a closed-campus, we have many points of entry. Wearing your uniforms and ID allows security and the entire staff to ensure you are a registered student on campus; anyone else is a guest or trespasser.  Review our dress code policy and proper use of the ID by clicking on the underlined links. Be safe!

School is closed next week Friday.


In observance of Hawaii's Statehood Day, Ilima will be closed on Friday, August 17, 2018. Enjoy your extended weekend.

We have seen reckless bicycling behavior that may jeopardize your health or the life of others.  Watch for on-coming traffic, stay in bike lanes, and avoid riding in pedestrian walk ways.
