Vaccination Information

Mahalo for doing your part in keeping our school and community safe by getting vaccinated! We are thankful to have so many individuals who share a common goal to reduce/stop the spread of COVID-19. Please read some reminders below and if you have any further questions, contact our School Health Aide Karen Tolentino at 595-5406.


  • Some individuals may experience side effects after receiving the vaccine. If your child(ren) exhibits any symptoms other than pain at the injection site, please do not send your child(ren) to school until the symptoms are resolved. If post-vaccine side effects are substantial or persist beyond 48 hours, we will require a COVID test or a doctor’s note before returning to school.

  • If you have more than one child attending Maemae Elementary and any of them exhibits COVID-like symptoms/post-vaccine side effects beyond 48 hours, please keep all siblings who are not fully vaccinated at home until the child who is showing symptoms takes a COVID test or receives clearance from their doctor. Fully vaccinated sibling(s) who are not showing any symptoms may remain in school. Proof of vaccination is required.

  • Individuals are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after the second dose.

  • Fully vaccinated individuals who exhibit COVID-like symptoms will still need to follow the return to school/work criteria before returning to school. Please see the back of this page for reference.

  • For out of state travel, students fully vaccinated prior to travel date will not need to take a post COVID test to return to school. Proof of vaccination is required.

  • Students fully vaccinated are not required to do a 10 day quarantine after close contact/possible exposure with a positive case as long as they are symptom-free. Proof of vaccination is required.

  • Once your child has been fully vaccinated, we encourage you to send a copy of your child(ren)’s vaccination record to our School Health Aide at karen.tolentino@k12.hi.us for record keeping.
