SCHOOL COMMUNICATION

Hau'ula School Bulletin

Sept 14-18 Version 3.0

1.jpg

Official Letter

http://bit.ly/sept14-18v3


September 14, 2020


Aloha e nā ʻohana o Hau‘ula,
We are starting our weekly bulletin again to keep our ‘ohana updated on the
latest school information. These updates will be posted regularly on our
website:http://www.hauulaelementary.com with informal reminders posted to
our social media pages on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter under: @hauula_el -
so make sure to follow us. HIDOE updates can be found on the department’s
website at www.hawaiipublicschools.org


On August 27, HIDOE announced that schools on O’ahu and most neighbor
island schools will continue the Learn from Home phase of distance learning through the first quarter, which ends on October 2nd. To provide insight and details of what that means for your keiki, please review the following information from our Distance Learning Framework.


Teachers are using curriculum and resources that we already have in place
while focusing on essential standards and grade level skills that have been
determined to be the most important during this quarter.


SCHOOL STARTS at 7:50am M-F and ends at 2:05pm on M, T, Th, F and
12:50pm on W
. Teachers may require students to check in first thing in the
morning, meet in smaller groups or individual conferences during the day and
check back in at the end of the day. This is appropriate and counted as part of
the school day. Students are expected to participate with their class/teacher
during all scheduled learning sessions. These meetings may be scheduled for
multiple times during the school day. Students who need additional help, may
meet with their teacher during virtual office hours.


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.


Parents who need to communicate with their child’s teacher should do so via
school email or use the method of communication that was agreed upon with
the teacher. Please do not respond or contact the teacher during live online
sessions. It is distracting to the teacher and participants in class. Please refrain
from making comments to anyone during live online sessions. We also want to
stress the importance of letting your child do their own work - especially on
tests or assessments. Teachers may not be able to assign the help and lessons
needed if they do not know what your child is capable of doing on their own.


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.

TECH SUPPORT - WE ARE HERE FOR YOU! We now have a dedicated phone line
that families and students can access everyday M-F from 7:30am-3:00pm. We
can help troubleshoot all your tech, software, program or application problems
over the phone or help you in person (one person at a time; masks required) at
the library. We are providing on the job training and PD on the applications and
software teachers are using. Please come and see us. We are here for you!

MAHALO To our team of dedicated teachers and staff for the countless hours
in preparing for the school year and pivoting to our current distance learning
plan. Mahalo to our parents, kupuna and ‘ohana for your time, patience and
support navigating through all things digital and virtual. I know these changes
have not been easy, but together we will get through this! Pūpūkahi I Holomua!

U‘ilani Kaitoku, Po‘okumu

​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
