IMPORTANT DATES & INFORMATION
Morning Drop-Off & Wellness Check
Drop-off and pickup will be done via drive-thru similar to last year on all kahua kula. To expedite the process we are asking all ʻohana to do the MANDATORY Wellness Check-in by 7:00 am so that we can check completion prior to arrival. Reminder no keiki will be allowed on campus if the wellness check is not done or if you answer yes to any of the questions. This is crucial to maintain the health and safety of our whole kula and community so please help us keep you and your keiki and ʻohana healthy and safe. There will be a temperature check at drop-off and ensure that everyone in your vehicle is masked when we come to your car. You may find the link for the wellness check here: or scan the qr code below and save it to your phone.

Based on the Return to Learn Survey results, kumu and limahana with approval from the Governing Board, are working to allow ʻohana to select the learning design that best meets their needs at this time. Please read the attached letter (here) for that decision and what you need to do in the meantime so that we can prepare for your keikiʻs return to campus. In general this we have decided to:
Provide two choices for ʻohana for Hapahā 1 (Q1):

****Kai Kohola and Papa Mālaaʻo to be ONLY 100% Face to Face with no option for Distance Learning***
Please read the following letter for more details about this decision and what all ʻohana MUST do to help us to prepare.
