Sincerest Gratitude…

On behalf of the Maui High School Band, I would like to express our sincerest gratitude to our Administrators, Security, Teachers, Staff, and the Maui Police Department for responding quickly to keep our students safe.

As a reminder, here are Maui High School’s lock down procedures:

  • Remain in the classroom.
  • If in transit, report to the nearest classroom immediately.
  • Sign in on the attendance sheet.
  • Keep windows closed and doors locked, keep lights off.
  • TURN OFF ALL CELL PHONES AND PAGERS.
  • Remain quiet and calm.
  • Follow all directions given by supervising adult.
  • Students in the library will need to retreat to the back rooms as instructed by the adult in charge.

One of the most important points is to make sure your cell phones are off.  Any communication outside of OFFICIAL communication will not help our situation, whatever it may be.  Rumors and false information will only escalate the situation, and that is the last thing we need.

Also, parents should not be coming to campus during a lock down.  Parents’ presence will only make things difficult for trained personnel to execute their jobs.

Sincerely,
Mr. Wasano
