Message from Principal Kunihisa: Friday, August 7, 2020

Good evening families this is Principal Kunihisa with a follow-up message in response to Governor Ige and Superintendent Kishimoto’s press conference today. We are shifting now to a 100% full distance program for all students. That means all students will be placed in a classroom with a teacher and will be getting daily instruction beginning August 17 and until September 11.

If you were one of the families who completed the Distance Learning Opt-In form we will put your application “on hold” until we resume the blended model. Upon return to school, everyone will have the choice to return to school in our planned blended “in-person” model or start the Distance Learning program that will require you to take on the role of a Full Distance Educator as planned.

Again, we will be servicing students in a distance model for EVERYONE beginning August 17 and until September 11, 2020. If your child receives special education services and cannot receive distance learning there will be exceptions made for in-person instruction. More information about getting prepared will be sent out next week so stay tuned to our phone calls and social media. Class lists will also be updated and we will notify you when they change on our board.

I am so grateful for your continued support. Mahalo for showing us and each other Unity, Patience, and Serenity as we move into this new model of 100% online teaching and learning. Have a great weekend!
