March 23, 2021
Aloha Kale`iopu`u Ohana,
We have reached the end of the 3rd quarter while carefully navigating the return to in-person instruction via our blended model. We thank you for your continued patience and understanding as we made sure our health and safety procedures were sufficient in our transition back. Wearing of masks, social distancing, limiting the total number of individuals on campus and maintaining group bubbles to the greatest extent possible, have enabled our staff to provide instruction despite our current situation.
It has been shared in the news that schools are being asked to bring back elementary students for full in-person learning. After re-evaluating our capacity and resources, we are able to continue with our blended Blue/Silver schedule however we also can extend our blended students’ day to end at 2:00pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Wednesdays will remain virtual for blended students. This change will begin on Monday, April 5th, so that adjustments and transitions to our current procedures can take place. Please see the attached schedule.
Our staff and students have made great strides and successful learning has taken place despite our current challenges. Although this situation is not optimal, we are striving to provide the best instruction while keeping everyone safe. I am very thankful for your cooperation with our new routines and your support through such a different school year. Again, in short, on April 5th our blended in-person school days will end at 2:00pm.
Please stay safe and take care of your loved ones.
Alika Ahu - Principal
