Principal's Message

Dear Parents/Guardians, Students and Community Members,
 
    Students have done an amazing job the past month adapting to their Grade Level
procedures and schedules. Thank you to parents and guardians for their assistance
in acclimating your children to the school year!
     
     All schools are observing the Department of Health protocol regarding illnesses.  
The mitigation strategies of mask wearing, washing hands and maintaining distance,
have limited cases to only one active case on campus.  Information is confidential and
thus a general letter sent by schools will not identify a class or grade level with a active case.
However the school will contact the parent/guardian if a child is a "Close Contact" of a
positive case. If you have not been notified, your child has not had contact with an
active case. 
 
     Parents and guardians have been wonderful adhering to the Covid-19 testing guidelines,
when a child is displaying symptoms.  The majority of those tested are being reported as negative.
I appreciate your cooperation which enables our students to attend school safely. 
 
     The Department of Education is working on a Covid-19 attendance policy.  There are a 
few options if a parent or guardian does not feel comfortable sending their child to school
for a length of time:
1.  Apply for a Geographic Exception to an existing DOE distance learning school (Hokulani,
     Aliiolani, Maemae, Kaahumanu).  Once accepted, the parent/guardian must withdrawn their child 
     to enroll in the accepting new school.  
 
2.  Home School-Form 4140 is submitted to the school and parents can search for other online
     programs.
 
     Feel free to contact me at 733-4850 for further information.
 
Sincerely, 
 
Christina Small, Principal
