Distance Learning Parent Letter
from CAS Noh

20210801 CAS Noh DL.JPG

Letter from Cas Noh regarding DL

 

Aloha Honu 'Ohana,

Please find attached a letter from CAS Noh regarding Distance Learning plans for this upcoming school year. All schools in the Castle-Kahuku Complex Area are welcoming students back to in-person learning. Those families who are inquiring about Distance Learning, there is an option, but it will be managed and offered through HIDOE State Offices, not our school. Those who consider a DL option for their child must understand that the child will not participate in any extracurricular activities, including before and after school programs and school functions like May Day and Winter Concert. The commitment would be for one school year. Interested families will need approval from the Principal before the application is submitted to the State. Students who struggled with attendance at the end of last school year, fell behind in their work and did not show adequate progress will not be considered for DL.

Please call our school office at 305-2100 if you have questions.

Drop Off and Pick Up Reminders
2021 - 2022

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!
