Reposting Quarter 2 Transition Plans

REPOSTING QUARTER 2 TRANSITION PLANS:
From November 9-December 18, we will be inviting identified students for in-person learning for a few hours in the morning, two days of the week.

 

Following the DOH metrics and the Governor’s Reopening levels, our plans could change pending the course of the pandemic. All other students will continue with the current distance learning schedule. Teachers will communicate with parents regarding each child’s schedule by Nov. 4. We did not send a survey asking parents if they wanted their child to return to In-person learning because we are not able to safely return to a regular school schedule at 100% capacity. We are working up to a 50% capacity to allow for safe distancing and managing the cleaning and sanitation of classes, equipment and furniture.


● 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.

 

Mahalo nui for your continued support.

Aloha Hau’ula ‘Ohana,
LONO I KA MAKAHIKI! Makahiki season is the ancient Hawaiian New Year Festival. It was a season for men, women and chiefs to rest, strengthen the body, and have
great feasts of commemoration (‘aha’aina ho’omana’o). During Makahiki season labor was prohibited and there were days for resting and feasting. The Hawaiians gave
thanks to Lono for his care. He brought life, blessings, peace and victory to the land. During the four lunar months
of the Makahiki season warfare was forbidden. Many of the Kapu were lifted as a way to focus on peace and thankfulness. Makaʻāinana stopped work, made offerings to the chief or aliʻi, and then spent their time practicing sports, feasting, dancing and renewing communal bonds. Makahiki provided a venue for makaʻāinana to present their best works and perform feats of athleticism before their akua and aliʻi.

 

We’re missing our festivities this year but here’s a throwback to 2018 and resources you can read with your ‘ohana.

Mahalo nui for your continued support. We are so thankful for each and
every one of you. Wishing you a wonderful week filled with gratitude and
aloha. Hau‘oli Lā Ho‘omaika‘i!

PREVIOUS ANNOUNCEMENTS:

 

November 16:

● DROP OFF TIME: As more groups of students are invited for in-person learning we are adjusting our drop-off time to begin at 7:50 am. We do not have supervision before 7:50 am and will ask you to wait with your child if you drop off your child earlier than 7:50 am.


● ATTENDANCE FOR IN-PERSON LEARNING DAYS: Students who are scheduled to be on campus for in-person learning will be marked absent if they do not attend. Even if they complete asynchronous work at home, they are still considered absent for the day. If your child is sick, please call the office at 305-2100.


● HEALTH CHECKS TO BE DONE AT HOME: All HIDOE staff, contracted service providers, visitors and students must complete a wellness check each morning before going to the school/office. There are two parts. STEP 1: Check for Symptoms of Illness and STEP 2: Check for recent COVID-19 Exposure. Use this Daily Wellness Check the chart as a guide. The Safety of our students and staff are of utmost importance! (Reference: HIDOE
Health and Safety Manual v.10)


● FAMILY, STUDENT, EMPLOYEE TRAVEL: All Department of Education employees and public school students who travel will need to comply with the county’s quarantine guidelines to avoid a mandatory 14-day quarantine in order to be able to return to work or school. Families who are unable to fulfill these requirements are subject
to the 14-day mandatory self-quarantine. Families must notify the school of their travel dates prior to taking the trip. Upon
return to school/work the student or employee must provide evidence that they have a negative COVID test or a doctor’s note clearing them to return to school/work. The absences will count towards total attendance days
regardless if it is excused or unexcused. The school is also not obligated to prepare and provide students with work for the days they will be missing school. Upon return, students will get extended days to finish the work they missed.


● LIVE SPECIALS: We are fortunate to have LIVE SESSIONS in Music, PE, Library and Character Ed once a week for students. Each virtual link is unique to a specific grade or class. Please use the link your teacher shares with you. Students who miss their Specials time may log on to a make up session. See your teacher for the link. Videos will continue to be posted online in addition to the live classes. Teachers will determine your attendance
on days that they assign specials.


● GRAB-AND-GO MEALS: Students who are on campus for in-person learning will wait for parents at their assigned drop off-site. Parents may pick up their child’s meal between 11:30 am-12:00 pm. Students who catch the bus will take their meals home to eat. On distance learning days, students may pick up their meals during meal service hours.


● PARENTS, VISITORS AND GUESTS are currently not allowed in the classrooms or past the office. Please check in at the office if you have questions.


LOOKING AHEAD - QUARTER 3 WILL CONTINUE WITH A BLENDED PLAN:

We will continue following the transition
plans we are currently implementing in Quarter 2. Please keep in mind that plans could change at any given time pending the direction of the pandemic. We will continue to monitor and update you. Here is a brief outline of Quarter 3:


● Smaller groups of students will be on campus for in-person learning 1-2 days per week until 11:30 am with the
other days as distance learning. Teachers may make appointments to see individual students, case by case.


● Families who Opted-In to 100% distance learning will be able to continue distance learning through Quarter 3.
Opportunities to change will be shared soon.


● We continue to follow all state mandates and provisions related to COVID-19 including 6 ft. distancing, a limited
number of visitors to the campus, no field trips or school travel, and requiring masks/face coverings while on campus. At this time we are still not able to bring all students back for full, regular school days.


● The State of Hawai’i is currently at the “Act With Care” Impact Level. Following the DOH Metrics, we could move up or down levels pending the tracking of COVID cases and needing to minimize the spread of COVID-19. With this blended plan, the school is prepared to PIVOT to offer instruction both virtually and in-person pending the direction from our state leaders.

WHAT WE DO: Guidance and counseling services are provided for the purpose
of assisting students with their educational, personal-social adjustments, and
progress. This service is an integral part of the total school program. Specific areas addressed are crisis intervention, counseling (helping students with coping strategies, make decisions and solve problems), and guidance activities
such as testing, and career information. Examples of situations where a counselor might be involved with students include:
● When a student has personal concerns or important decisions to make and needs to know more about alternatives and possible consequences.
● When a student wants some help in solving a problem with a teacher or
a parent.
● When a student is concerned about drugs, alcohol, and related issues.
● When a student thinks he/she may need help or coordination by outside agencies, such as Social Services.
● When a student would like career guidance or be part of a counseling group.
● When a student’s parents want to be constructively involved (having a
conference with a counselor and/or teachers).

​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
