ESSER III Educational Plan
Stakeholder Mtg.

Hau‘ula Elementary School Community Council Special Meeting
November 29, 2021
3:00 pm-4:00 pm

In April 2021, the U.S. Department of Education approved the Hawaii State Department of Education (Department) State Plan for the federal American Rescue Plan Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER III). ESSER III funds are intended to facilitate the safe reopening of schools, mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on students and families who depend on the Department’s supports and services, and effectively address learning loss, especially those students who have struggled during the pandemic.

The Department is in the process of seeking approval from the Hawaii State Board of Education (Board) on our ESSER III Educational Plan, which outlines HIDOE’s proposed use of the ESSER III funds. The ESSER III Educational Plan is intended to provide guidance to our schools, complex areas, and state offices as we continue to respond to the impact of learning loss caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Stakeholder feedback is critical in ensuring that all voices are represented in the drafting of the ESSER III Educational Plan. Meet with your School Community Council (SCC) to share information on the proposed ESSER III Educational Plan; solicit feedback on how this Plan will impact our students, families, and school communities; and advocate for their support in ensuring our federal funds are used to facilitate student achievement and the safe operation of our schools as intended.

Reminder: Makahiki Games and Kūkini (Turkey Trot)

16 Novemapa 2021
Aloha e nā ‘ohana o Hau’ula,
Hau’oli Makahiki Hou!

On Friday November 19th, we will be hosting two school events: Makahiki Games and Turkey Trot. What a wonderful opportunity to honor the beginning of the Hawaiian New Year by coming together to appreciate and strengthen new and existing friendships within our school ‘ohana. Mahalo nui Coach Kau’i and Tutu Roma for
working with our classes on the games and introduction lessons to Makahiki.


MAKAHIKI GAMES:
Makahiki games will begin at 9am on the campus. The schedule will rotate to accommodate one grade level at a time. Masks and footwear are necessary to participate. Hand sanitizing stations and restrooms will be accessible for students to use. Please dress your keiki in comfortable clothing, wear a hat, bring a water bottle and apply sunscreen at home as needed. For now, the campus will remain closed to guests and visitors.


Mahalo for your understanding as our keiki are all not vaccinated and we are taking extra precautions to keep everyone safe and minimize the spread of infections.


The rising of Makaliʻi (the constellation Pleiades) at sunset marks the beginning of the Hawaiian new year, known as Makahiki.
Makahiki usually begins mid-November and ends in late January or February, aligning with the rainy season. It is a time set aside for tribute, harvest, sport, and play.


The roughly four-month period of Makahiki was a time of peace and plenty, relaxation and games, and for harvest. It was also a time to honor the god Lono, one of the four major gods recognized not only here in Hawaiʻi, but throughout the Pacific. During Makahiki, the qualities of Lono were celebrated by feasting, competing in sport and games, hula and storytelling. War between the aliʻi was forbidden. Makahiki also signifies a time of rest and rejuvenation for both the land and the people. This period served as an opportunity to both fortify existing bonds and forge new relationships.

https://kaiwakiloumoku.ksbe.edu/article/essays-makahiki-an-overview


KŪKUNI (TURKEY TROT)
Turkey Trot will begin at 1pm at the Hau‘ula Park across the street from the school (weather permitting). Students who wish to participate must wear covered shoes and a mask during the race. Disposable masks will be available for those who need. For the safety of all runners, no spikes, slippers, sandals or barefeet will be allowed.


Prizes will be distributed to student winners right after school on Friday using the two pick up lanes in front of the cafeteria. Please stay in your car and have your certificate ready to hold outside of your window. We ask for your patience as we bring the prizes to your car.


Families who plan to watch at the park will need to remain behind our classes and monitor their distancing between other families and spectators. Students will not be allowed to sit with their families and families will not be allowed to sit with their child’s class during the event.


Should you have any questions, please feel free to call the school office at 305-2100.

QUARTER 2 EXPECTATIONS:
Our first round of parent teacher conferences will be held Oct. 29-November 5. School will be ending at 12:50pm on these days. Teachers will be setting up virtual meetings with parents and students. We are hoping for 100% participation. It is important that parents make time to attend. The purpose of the conference
is to communicate your child’s progress from the first quarter and set new goals for the second quarter.

 


Strategies on how parents can support their child will be shared. Student success is a partnership between home and school. We encourage families to be actively engaged in their child’s learning by keeping in touch
with the teacher, responding to emails and communication from school, asking their child about school, what they are learning and ensuring that homework and assignments are being worked on and completed. These routines will reinforce the importance of school and learning and can greatly impact student success.


AFTERSCHOOL, WINTER, SPRING AND SUMMER LEARNING HUBS:
We are planning to continue our learning hub sessions during the upcoming breaks and one month during the summer. This is an effort to individually help students who missed 8 or more days of school in the quarter and who would benefit from strengthening and reviewing reading, writing and math skills. We are working on a
tutoring program after school as well. Please consider these opportunities for your child to get the extra help
they may need to move them closer to grade level proficiency levels.

BACK TO SCHOOL REMINDERS:
● Employees and students who traveled out-of-state during the break are subject to the
Safe Travels Program requirements and are required to provide proof of a negative test result from the pre-travel testing program (from a Trusted Testing and Travel Partner no more than 72 hours before beginning the final leg of your trip to Hawai’i) or a copy of the individual's vaccination card. Positive test results from
travel or no pre-travel testing results are subject to a 10 day quarantine. Do not report to the campus.
The school will be requesting a copy of your travel itinerary and pre-travel test results to determine if you can bypass quarantine.
● Each morning, all families must conduct a
wellness check at home with their child before coming to the campus. Employees must also conduct their own wellness check before coming to the campus. Individuals who are exhibiting any symptoms of illness, or who have been directed to quarantine by the DOH, should not come to campus. If someone in the immediate household recently tested positive or is awaiting results, or you are a recent close contact with someone with COVID-19 do not come to campus and call the office at (808) 305-2100 so we can assess the situation and determine appropriate next steps.
● Student Drop off is at 7:40 am. You must remain in your car with your child until a staff member arrives at that time. Only students in Kūkini Club will be allowed on campus by 7:10 am.
● Guests, Visitors and Parent Chaperones. All visitors must report to the office. Any part of the campus beyond the office remains closed to parents, guests and visitors. Accessing the campus will be by
appointment only and must be cleared by the administrator. Adults and youth 12+ years old must provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 7 days of accessing the campus. We are not allowing parents to chaperone school field trips at this time.

Please call our office if you have any questions, (808) 305-2100.

Drop Off and Pick Up Reminders

Drop Off and Pick Up Map.JPG

Drop Off and Pick Up Reminders: 

UPDATE: Drop off Pick Up Changes for

Gr. 1 Effective 9/15

In an effort to reduce our traffic flow in the K-1 area, effective tomorrow Sept. 15 the pick up and drop off for all Grade 1/Papa 'Ekahi students will be moved to the Gr. 2-3 area. Families who have students in Gr. 1-6 should enter from Kamehameha Hwy and turn into the school to drop off and pick up their child.

 

Mahalo nui for your understanding and patience as we transition over the next few days to make this change happen.

Aloha e nā Hau‘ula ‘Ohana,


Welcome Back! It was so nice to reconnect
with our haumana and ‘ohana again. As we
bring all students back to school safely, we
are again adjusting our transitions to
accommodate a larger enrollment number
at our drop off and pick up sites.


We are asking all families to please help us
with the routes to ensure a smooth
transition.


Do not use Ko’olau road as an exit. This
causes a big back up and traffic jam. If you
are picking up keiki at the PK-1/HLIP M-1
site, please enter from the back of the
school and exit onto Kamehameha Hwy. If
the keiki have siblings in other grades,
follow the route and turn right into the
school then continue to exit onto
Kamehameha Hwy.


We have two lanes for drop off and pick up
when you turn into the school. Staff will be
there to escort your child safely to and from
your car.


Please do not get out of your car or have
your child cross or walk through moving
traffic. It is very dangerous.


Like the ‘Ohe (bamboo) mahalo nui for your
continued patience and understanding. We
are committed to working out the bumps to ensure a smooth transition to school. As we continue to monitor the traffic patterns, we will hold off on tardies for the next two weeks until there is a better traffic flow.


Mahalo for your continued support. Together we are STRONGER! Ho’omana, Ho’omau, Holomua!


Mrs. U’ilani K. Kaitoku, Po‘okumu
