SCHOOL UPDATES & PARENT SURVEY

https://bit.ly/2OO8vxR

 

 

These are key points from common questions and inquiries to help our ʻohana prepare for the upcoming school year. A Return To School Guide will be provided to all families once our draft has been approved. Please know that what is being shared with you can be changed or modified pending further clarification and updates from HIDOE, DOH, Centers for Disease Control and the unions. We will provide these updates as they become available.

HAWAII’S IMPACT LEVELS: https://bit.ly/3fSASHg.  Here is an overview of our implementation plan pending the State of Hawai’i’s Impact Levels. Currently, we are in the ACT WITH CARE phase. These risk levels and requirements are in accordance with the Governor's Reopening Plan. It is subject to change as federal, state and local requirements change. This chart outlines our plan to shift to other
phases should Hawaii’s plan change. 

MODIFIED LAYOUTS: Students and staff will practice proper distancing by maintaining 6 feet distance between and among students and staff in meeting spaces, hallways and exterior school grounds to the extent possible; and common areas, such as walkways, cafeteria, bathrooms. Space seating/desks will be 6 feet apart. Students will face in the same direction (rather than facing each other) or may sit on only one side of tables, spaced apart.

FACE COVERINGS: Face coverings (face masks or face shields) must be worn on campus at all times by all employees, students and visitors; and are most essential in times when physical distancing is difficult. Masks may be removed while eating or taking a brief breathing break as long as students are not within 6 feet of others. A face shield might be better suited for younger students (Pre K-2), students with disabilities, or students who have underlying medical conditions - where
wearing a mask may be very difficult.

 

DAILY CLEANING AND SANITIZING: Classrooms and common areas will be appropriately cleaned, sanitized, and
disinfected daily as directed by guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. High touch
surfaces like doorknobs, light switches, handles, devices, desks and tables will be cleaned throughout the day.

PRECAUTIONS AGAINST SURFACE OR OBJECT TRANSMISSION: Increased hand washing, proper face covering protocols, coughing/sneezing into tissues or your elbow, not touching your face are all examples of good preventive hygiene and will be incorporated into the school day routine.
Classrooms have adequate supply of soap, hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol (for staff and older children who can safely use hand sanitizer), paper towels and tissues.

WELLNESS CHECKS: We will require daily wellness checks - involving a questionnaire for all employees, students and visitors to screen for general symptoms of illness. If any of these symptoms are present, the person will be sent home immediately.

Parents will be asked to use the checklist every day before sending their child to school. Individual temperature
screening using a non-contact infrared thermometer may be necessary when there are multiple symptoms of illness.
Any temperature above 100.4 degrees will be sent home. The person will not be able to return until fever-free for 24 hours without use of medication. BOTTOM LINE - IF YOU ARE SICK, STAY HOME.

CONFIRMED CASES OF COVID-19: When a student or employee either tests positive for COVID-19 or has been identified as a close contact or household member to someone who has tested positive, the Hawaii State Department of Health (DOH) will conduct an investigation and those individuals involved will be directed to a 14-day home quarantine or isolation. Parents, staff and families will be informed and the school will work closely with HIDOE and DOH on immediate next steps.

 

DAILY CLEANING AND SANITIZING: Classrooms and common areas will be appropriately cleaned, sanitized, and
disinfected daily as directed by guidance provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. High touch
surfaces like doorknobs, light switches, handles, devices, desks and tables will be cleaned throughout the day.

Q: Who is considered vulnerable? Usually - younger students (Pre K-2), IDEA, ELL, disadvantaged populations.

Q: What is the schedule for the first 9 days of school - August 4-14, 2020?
More details of this will follow but these are half days ending at 11:30 am. Aug 4 -5 are Complex PC and Waiver Days
- no students on these days. Students will report to campus in smaller groups so teachers can better assess their
needs.

Q: Will attendance be taken? Yes. Attendance will be taken every morning for in person face-to-face instruction.
Students who are distance learning will be expected to turn in assignments to receive credit for attendance and
participate in any live sessions scheduled by the teacher. Students reporting for less than half a day will be
considered absent.

You can apply for Free and Reduced-Price Meal Benefits online EZMealApp.


Q: If my child is distance learning can they still pick up lunch? Yes. Grab and go style lunches will be available. We are working on the schedule and details. Students will need to be present.

Q: I’m really worried about sending my child to school, are there any other options available? We are currently exploring viable options that need to be considered and received by an Intent to Participate Contract. Please complete the parent survey by Monday, July 27.


Q: Are you offering 100% Distance Learning? Although distance learning was not one of the models presented to the
elementary schools, we are now collecting data to help us determine if we have the resources and staffing to provide
options to the current model. Please read through the information below and Please complete the parent survey by
Monday, July 27.


Q: How do I know if 100% Distance Learning is a good fit for my child? A lot depends on your child’s style of learning
and support they are provided at home. It might be a struggle for younger students who look forward to interacting
with their peers and adult supports at school.


Lessons and activities would be accessed online and completed independently. Parents would be responsible for
setting up a schedule and making sure their child completes all assignments on time. The teacher or facilitator would
check in with the student and help to answer questions. Attendance would be reported to the school daily and
arrangements would be made for any assessments that need to be done by the school. A device would be provided if
needed by completing a loan agreement contract and attending a mandatory online safety training. Parents should
be comfortable navigating the internet and be familiar with basic computer skills.


Parents who select this option for their child would need to commit to one semester. This option is not recommended for vulnerable students or students in the Hawaiian Language Immersion program because of the
specificity of the program which relies heavily on oral language acquisition - online resources are also very limited.

​FILL OUT THE PARENT SURVEY - DUE MONDAY, JULY 27 - Survey is Closed.
