- School Year: 177-180 days of instruction; 187-190
teacher work days. More than half of all schools have adopted single-track year-round or modified calendars. Multi-track
year-round scheduling is applied at some schools to relieve overcrowding.
- School begins: Students at traditional calendar
schools generally begin the third week in August (the 7th working day from the end of the month). Students at
year-round schools generally begin four, three, or two weeks earlier.
- School Ends: Prior to June 11, Kamehameha
Day (applies to most year-round schools, too)
- Recesses: Winter - two weeks including Christmas
and New Year's Day; Spring -- last full week in March and including Kuhio Day. Year-round schools typically have
Fall Recess, and might have longer Winter and Spring Recesses.
- Student Holidays (in addition to holidays that fall
within recesses): Admission Day (August); Labor Day; Teacher Institute Day (October); General Election Day
(even years); Veterans' Day; Thanksgiving Day and following day; Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day; Last day of
1st semester; Presidents' Day; Good Friday; Memorial Day; and Independence Day (if in session).
