SCHOOL COMMUNICATION

Letter from Int. Superintendent Hayashi January 2nd, 2022

20220103_Supt parent letter about omicron.JPG

January 3, 2022

Aloha Parents and Guardians,


I hope you and your family enjoyed a wonderful and safe holiday season!


Like many of you, our concerns grew with the uptick in COVID positive cases in our state. We worked closely with the State Department of Health over the holiday break to monitor the potential impacts of the increase in community cases and the highly transmissible Omicron variant. We
continue to prioritize keeping schools open at this time and are looking forward to welcoming students back to resume in-person learning this week wit
h consistent safety measures in place.


Before the winter break, our public school system minimized transmission and kept students safe through our layered mitigation strategies. This included promoting vaccinations and boosters,
masking, staying home when sick, and hand washing. From December 1 to December 20 (the first day of winter break), the Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE) schools collectively saw a daily average of 25 positive cases across nearly 42,000 staff and 160,000 students, according to our
case count dashboard. Hawaii reported its first Omicron case on December 2nd.


We anticipate a rise in case counts because schools are a reflection of their communities; however, data shows the safety measures practiced in schools are effective. We are also fortunate to now
have additional resources, including vaccinations for students 5 years and older — meaning nearly everyone on our campuses is eligible to be vaccinated. Booster shots and opportunities for testing
within the community or at school are also available.


Getting vaccinated and getting booster shots are some of the best ways to protect yourself and those around you. We highly encouraged all those eligible to get their vaccination. Visit

hawaiicovid19.com/vaccine for information on vaccination sites. In preparation of the return from winter break, we encourage you to revisit the HIDOE’s COVID-19 Health and Safety Guidance at bit.ly/HIDOEsafetyguidance. Updates to align with the Department of Health’s latest guidance on quarantine requirements are forthcoming.


Keeping our schools open and safe is a community effort and will require action and commitment from each and every one of us. Thank you for doing your part and for your continued support and cooperation.
Mahalo,

 


Keith T. Hayashi
Interim Superintendent

School Updates:
2 Ianuali 2022

20220102 Hauula Bulletin.PNG

HAU‘OLI MAKAHIKI HOU E NĀ HAU‘ULA ‘OHANA!
We hope you are doing well and look forward to seeing all haumana. It is hard to believe that we are starting the second semester of the school year. This is to communicate that we are aware of and are
monitoring the current surge of COVID-19 cases and remain committed to the health and well-being of our students, staff, and families as our highest priority. As students return from break on Wednesday,
January 5th we will continue to implement multiple layers of protection: promoting the vaccination of staff and eligible students, staying home if sick and being sent home if sick at school, correct and consistent use of masks indoors and outdoors, promoting good hand washing hygiene and remaining in cohorts at the cafeteria, playground and the designated drop off/pick up sites.


We ask for your kōkua in completing a Wellness Check at home with your keiki each morning before coming to school. Employees must also conduct their own wellness check before coming to the campus. Individuals who are exhibiting COVID-19 like symptoms regardless of vaccination status, 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. Follow the Return to School/Work Criteria and call the office at (808) 305-2100 so we can assess the situation and determine appropriate next steps.


Any modifications or updates to the current HIDOE Health and Safety protocols will be communicated to our families as guidance is sought from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and
Hawaiʻi Department of Health (HI DOH).


TRAVEL REMINDERS:
Students who travel out-of-state must also complete one of the following pathways to return to school:
1. Be fully vaccinated before the return flight to Hawaii and show proof of vaccination to the school;
2. Test for COVID-19 (2 steps)
a. Students ages 5 and older must show proof of:
i. Safe Travels pre-travel test result and
ii. A post-travel test result (i.e. PCR or antigen test taken after returning to 23 Hawaii)
b. Students under 5 years of age must show proof of:
i. The travel companion’s vaccination or Safe Travels pre-travel test result and
ii. Their own post-travel test result; or
3. Stay home for ten (10) days after returning to Hawaii
4. Within 90 days of COVID-19 infection, show proof of the COVID-19 diagnosis and return to school after the isolation period is complete, symptoms improved, and no fever for 24 hours without the use of medication. (i.e., no COVID-19 test or quarantine required if asymptomatic).
The school may request documentation of COVID-19 vaccination, test results, diagnosis, and/or travel itinerary.

BACK TO SCHOOL REMINDERS:
● 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.
● 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 report all absences to the office at (808) 305-2100. Illnesses that are not COVID related need a doctor’s note upon return to school if your child was absent for 3 or more days. Not reporting an absence or returning a call from the office will result in an unexcused absence and further follow up will take place.

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
