Aloha MMS Ohana,


A few friendly reminders:
-Tomorrow August 4 is the first day for 7th graders only

-Friday August 5 all students return to school

 

-If you have not already filled out a paper bus application or an online bus application, please make sure to do so. More Bus information...

If you need to find out where your child's bus stop is and time of pick up and drop off. You can look it up online at http://www.infofinderi.com/tfi/ 

A student attending a CEP (Community Eligibility Provision) school with free lunch, will no longer be automatically eligible for free bus. You must be SNAP certified to be eligible for a free bus pass. To apply for eligibility please make sure to fill out an online application at https://ezmealapp.com Once you have applied for eligibility, you will then need to fill out a bus application online at https://hi.etrition.com/busapplication. If your application is denied, please make sure to correctly select your payment plan according to your ezmeal application status.

For school bus applications that are submitted via eTrition, you will be prompted via email to submit payments online using EZSchoolPay once the application is approved. You will then receive a receipt and temporary bus pass that can be printed at home.

For families that used a paper application, temporary passes will be available for students to pick up in the main office, once payment is received.

Bus coupons must be purchased at the school and are cash only.

Permanent bus pass cards will be available at the MMS office seven to ten days after payment is received. Please remind your child to check with the office for their hardcopy of their bus pass.

There will be a three-week grace period at the start of the school year. Please ensure your child knows that they are required to show their bus pass to the driver by August 29, 2022. Students who do not show a valid bus pass after this date will be reported to the school upon arrival and/or may be denied a ride in the future.

You will no longer need to fill out an application for each quarter. Once an application is approved, it is approved for the entire school year. Please make sure to make payments in a timely manner. Please see the schedule below:
