HEALTH AND SAFETY GUIDANCE SY 22-23: (Supt. Letter to families 07.25.22)
As we transition to a new school year, we want to ensure that students and families are equipped with the latest updates to the Hawaii State Department of Education’s (HIDOE) health and safety guidance.
The HIDOE continues to rely on the expertise and guidance of the Hawaii State Department of Health (DOH) when it comes to protocols to keep our schools open and safe. Here are the latest revisions:
● Indoor and outdoor masking is optional for students and employees, but highly encouraged. The HIDOE recognizes the benefits of masking for reducing the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses and any student or employee who chooses to wear a mask will have that decision respected.
● In the event of a cluster or outbreak, masks may temporarily be required indoors.
● Indoor masking is strongly encouraged when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) determines community levels are medium or high. As of date, state levels show all islands as medium or high, so indoor masking is strongly encouraged.
● Quarantine still applies for non-school and household exposures when someone is not up-to-date with COVID-19 vaccinations for their age group.
● Isolation requirements remain for anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 or has COVID-19 like symptoms.


STAY CONNECTED:
● For the most recent updates from the Hawaii Department of Education including COVID-19 updates, please visit the HIDOE website at: www.hawaiipublicschools.org
● For updates from Hau‘ula Elementary, please visit our website at
http://www.hauulaelementary.com. Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter: @hauula_el
● Emails and text messages are sent to families via School Messenger. Please call our office at 305-2100 to update your contact information with us to ensure that you are receiving these
messages.

‘Aukake lā 8, 2022


Aloha e nā Hau‘ula ‘Ohana,
We are asking all families to please help us with the drop off and pick up routes to
ensure a smooth and safe transition for our keiki.


All students in PK/K and Papa M are to
enter from the back of the school and exit
via Kamehameha Hwy. If the keiki have
siblings in other grades, follow the route and drop off at the front of the school then exit onto Kamehameha Hwy. Do not use Ko’olau road as an exit. This causes a big back up and we want to be respectful of the residents that live in the area. Please do not speed. Drive with caution and aloha as many of our keiki walk to school.


Students in Gr. 1-6 are to enter from
Kamehameha Hwy and turn left into the
school to drop off students in front of the
office and cafeteria respectively.


We have two lanes for drop off and pick up at the front of 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.

Mahalo nui for your continued patience and understanding. ʻAʻohe hana nui ke alu ʻia - No task is too big when
done together by all
