Aloha e nā Hau‘ula ‘Ohana,


I hope this letter finds you well and rested. We look forward to seeing all our keiki back at school on Tuesday, October 19. Monday is a Complex Waiver Day for all Kahuku DOE Schools - no students.


QUARTER 1 PROGRESS:
As we welcomed students back to full in-person learning our priorities were centered around student safety and well- being. We continued to implement key mitigation strategies to minimize the risk of exposure. We increased support for students in the classroom and on campus with an amazing team of staff at the drop off and pick up sites. Breakfast was included in the school day and 200+ students joined one or more of the 21st
before and after school programs.

 

Communication regarding COVID-19 cases on campus, protocols for returning back to school and follow up on attendance and absences were consistent. Counselors, ‘Ohana Engagement and Tech Support staff were accessible throughout the day to assist students and families.


Teachers were focused on building and fostering positive relationships with students and getting to know their families. Routines and classroom expectations were taught, reviewed and reinforced. All students were assessed in order to determine current level of learning to be able to plan differentiated instruction and
support around their needs.


STUDENT DATA:
Current Enrollment (10/14/21): 348 (20 students moved or homeschooled)
Daily Average Attendance: 82% (Goal: 95%. Quarter 4 of SY 20-21: 92%)
Excused Absences: 1, 309 days; Unexcused Absences: 621 days


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.

Drop Off and Pick Up Reminders
2021 - 2022

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
