ALERT !! Friday --- Pau Bridge Social !! Details at Tournament !!

Wednesday Traffic Request

School is starting on Thursday, August 17 so please do not enter the gate until after 12:15 to allow students to leave.

Regular Wednesday Schedule:  Makua Lani students finish their day at 12:00 on Wednesdays which means they are all trying to drive out the gate at that time. 

Sooooo the school has asked us to please not attempt to enter the gate before 12:15 to alleviate gridlock.  If you arrive and see a tie up at the gate please just wait on the street for a few minutes until the road clears up.  Your Kokua is appreciated and you can use the extra few minutes to review your convention card.  cool
