KʻUK Reopening Version 2

Aloha kākou e nā ʻohana Ka ʻUmeke Kā’eo PCS,

 

 
I hope this email finds you all safe and healthy, yet enjoying your wā hoʻomaha with your ʻohana. We have been working tirelessly to be prepared for our keiki and school year and want to mahalo you all for your patience and understanding as we work together in this process.  
 
Last night the KʻUK Governing Board met and approved the revised Instructional Design for Q1 and Official School Calendar. There have been some changes to the original plan released for reopening to ensure that we are prepared and can provide a safe and healthy learning environment for our keiki and limahana. In order to do so we have decided to move our entire school program from Kai Kohola to Papa 11 to an A/B schedule. What this means is that all keiki that do not choose the 100% distance learning/online format (Papa Mālaaʻo-Papa 11 only) will have 2 days of face to face instruction at kula and 2 days of distance learning at home (w/ Wednesday being an independent online/pāhana instructional day). The attached document provides a visual for you to review when you have time.  
 
Another change is in relation to our calendar. Originally we planned to reopen for keiki on August 6th. After much thought and discussion we have recognized the need for additional time to prepare our sites for safe reopening as well as time for kumu and staff to receive pd/training and prepare for the new school year under these new requirements. Our new first day for keiki will be Monday, August 10th, and we will maintain the half day schedule for the week with full days to start the following Monday, August 17th.  
 
I will be providing an orientation for our ʻohana with more detailed information next week. Here are the days and times for the orientation zooms:
 
4:30-5:30 pm: (Zoom links will be posted on Bloomz and on our website)
Tuesday, July 28th: Papa 1-3
Wednesday July 29th: Papa 4-5
Thursday, July 30th: Papa Mālaaʻo
Monday, August 3rd: KWKK
 
Mahalo nui and I hope to see you next week at our orientations!
 
Me ka haʻahaʻa,
Kumu Nohea

A MESSAGE FROM OUR POʻOKUMU:

Aloha kākou e nā ʻohana Ka ʻUmeke Kāʻeo,

 Mahalo for your patience and understanding as we prepare for the reopening of next school year. We know that you have all been waiting for information on what school reopening for Ka ʻUmeke is going to look like. 

In designing our instructional program we are following guidance from the BOE/DOE/DOH and HSTA and are putting processes in place that will best ensure the health and safety of our keiki and staff. In our planning, we are prioritizing face to face as much as possible for our elementary grades to support our mission and vision of ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi acquisition but also ensuring we have plans in place for distancing learning as necessary. We will be meeting with faculty and staff this week to discuss our model for reopening and will have more detailed information for you early next week. 

For now please plan for the first day of instruction to be on August 6th and all instruction will be half days until August 14. Full days of instruction will begin on August 17th. We will be communicating via one-call, Bloomz, our website and will send informational letters out as well.

Mahalo nui for your patience and as always feel free to reach out to us at 933-3482 or 961-0470 if you have any questions or concerns.  

Aloha,
Kumu Nohea
