School Updates

October 22, 2020

20201027 School Update.JPG

October 22, 2020
Aloha e ​nā ʻohana o ​Hau‘ula,
I hope you are all doing well and had an enjoyable Fall Break. This is an update to let you know about our Quarter 2 transition plan to start bringing students on campus for in-person learning.
OCTOBER 12-NOVEMBER 6: CONTINUATION OF DISTANCE LEARNING
● DLP students and students with appointments are on campus for individual in-person instruction,
assessments and/or related services that cannot be conducted virtually.
OCTOBER 22-27: OPT-IN FULL DISTANCE LEARNING FORMS DUE BY OCT. 27


● OPT-IN DISTANCE LEARNING FORM FOR QUARTER 2: http://bit.ly/OPTINQ2


● Complete and submit the ​form​ by October 27 if you choose to have your child participate in distance learning for the duration of Quarter 2.


● Assignments will be posted online by the teacher with opportunities for virtual check-ins, individual
appointments and conferencing with the teacher from 12:00 noon.
NOVEMBER 9-DEC 18: SMALLER GROUPS OF STUDENTS INVITED ON CAMPUS FOR IN-PERSON
INSTRUCTION


● For the health and safety of our staff, students and families, we are not able to bring all students back on campus for full school days. We are expected to comply with the six feet distancing
guidelines and wearing of masks/face coverings while on campus.


● Given these parameters, smaller groups of students will be invited on campus for in-person instruction 1-2 days of the week. The other two days will continue to follow a distance learning schedule with the remaining day for specials, independent work and appointments.


● Looking at the number of students who can safely be on campus, teachers will determine the level of priority and need for students to receive in-person instruction and then communicate with their parents about an appropriate schedule ​no later than November 4.
● The In-person school day will be from 8:00 am-11:30 am. Drop off will begin no earlier than 8:00 am and pick up will start at 11:30 am and be no later than 11:45 am.


● School bus service will be available but seating will be limited to maintain appropriate distancing.


● Students are expected to eat breakfast at home before arriving at 8:00 am. Grab-and-Go Meals will
continue to be served from 11:30 am-12:00 noon. Students pick up their lunch and breakfast for the next day at the same time. Students on campus will pick up their meals and proceed to the bus or car pick up locations on campus and eat lunch at home.


● There may be individual cases where students may be asked to meet individually or by appointment
with their teacher, counselor or staff member. These will be determined by the teacher or staff member and communicated with parents. MORE>

Anti-Bullying Unity

Spirit Week Oct. 26-30

Unity Spirit Week.png

http://bit.ly/UnityOct26-30

Every October, schools and organizations across the country join in observing National Bullying Prevention Month. The goal: encourage schools, communities and organizations to work together to stop bullying and cyberbullying and put an end to hatred and racism by increasing awareness of the prevalence and impact of all forms of bullying on all children of all ages.

 

Some ways that we can end Bullying in our schools is to:

  • Make friends with someone you don't know at school

  • Challenge others to be kind

  • Don't let anyone eat alone whether it's in the cafe or on a field trip

  • When you see someone being bullied, be brave and stand up for them!

 

Please join us this week as we raise awareness on this topic and share ways that we can be part of the solution to end bullying. We ask that all students, staff and 'ohana join us in participating in our Unity Spirit Week. http://bit.ly/UnityOct26-30 Every day read review the theme as a family.

HIDOE UPDATES:

We will begin Quarter 2 as a continuation of learning from home. Schools will be working as a Complex Area to consider
a gradual transition to blended learning opportunities as we continue to monitor COVID case activity against the DOH
metrics. We will keep you notified as soon as we have more information. We understand that some of you may have
questions about wanting to continue distance learning. Please look for a survey that will be coming out soon. . HIDOE Press Release.

SYNCHRONOUS and ASYNCHRONOUS:

You will notice that student schedules include both synchronous learning (real
time where teachers and students are engaging in learning simultaneously) and asynchronous learning
(learner-centered; learners are able to complete courses without having to be in a certain place at a certain time). Both
are counted as instructional minutes. Please note that the amount of physical hours a student would traditionally spend
in school is different from the amount of virtual hours in a distance learning model. It is not the same. This is because
of recommended screen time for distance learning which varies from grade to grade and takes into consideration the
attention span and workloads of students. Students need time to process this new way of learning.

ATTENDANCE IS TAKEN EVERYDAY!

Teachers mark students present when there is evidence of
synchronous/asynchronous participation. It is important that parents communicate with their child’s teacher if the child
has trouble getting online or completing their assignments. If a child is going to be absent from school,
parents/guardians are expected to call the main office at 305-2100 by 8:30 am to report the absence. Counselors will
be following up with families if a student misses two or more school days without notifying the office or if a student
repeatedly attempts to leave the online sessions early or does not complete assignments.

​Choose Aloha - Hau'ula SEL Program

Aloha Students and Families,

Welcome to our 2020-2021 school year. We hope you are all safe and well. Although the start of the school year is different than those of the past, we are all in this together and here to support you. One way we will be supporting all students is through our Social Emotional Learning (SEL) program called Choose Love. This program is a proactive solution to all of the issues our children are facing by teaching them how to create positive relationships, to make responsible decisions, to become self-aware and to manage their emotions. SEL increases academic performance and school and classroom climate while reducing bullying, anxiety, substance abuse and mental illness! Here's a video to watch with your family about the four areas of choosing love: http://bit.ly/hauulalove

Wiwo'ole (Courage) + Mahalo (Gratitude) + Ho'oponopono (Forgiveness) + Aloha Aku (Compassion in Action) = 'O Ke Aloha Ke Koho (Choosing Love)

Please let us know what you think or if you have questions. Call 305-2100 or email: counselors@nahonu.k12.hi.us

Mahalo, Mr. Nikora, Mrs. Teichert, Aunty Loke, Mr. Keo and Aunty Roseanne
