COVID-19 Updates

Aloha everyone,
Click into COVID-19 Updates, we have created a link to the Hawaii Department of Education (HIDOE) COVID-19 Updates page. Please continue to check this page as well as watch the local news for updates as things change very quickly.

As of today, Tuesday March 24, 2020 the Hawai‘i State Department of Education (HIDOE) will be aligning with the emergency orders directing residents statewide to remain at home and work from home through April 30. This means school facilities will be closed to students until at least April 30 and traditional in-school instruction is on hold until schools reopen.

Continuity of Education

The Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE) is working closely with the Hawaii Department of Health (DOH) on guidance for our students, teachers, parents and staff to prepare for and prevent the possible arrival of the COVID-19 disease at school campuses.

Grab-and-go Student Meals

The Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE) is implementing the Seamless Summer Option program a few months earlier than scheduled, as approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and Hawaii Child Nutrition Programs, to provide free grab-and-go meals for students during the extended spring break period.

Breakfast service hours:
7:30–8 a.m. For food safety, meals must be consumed by 10 a.m.

Lunch service hours:
11:30 a.m.–12 p.m. For food safety, meals must be consumed by 2 p.m.

Note: Meals will not be served Thursday, March 26, in observance of Prince Kuhio Day

Virtual Keiki Run

Aloha Everyone!

Due to the concerns of COVID-19, the Keiki Rainbow Run has been changed to a virtual run! The original plan for an event on March 28th at the University of Hawaii will NOT be held. We still have the same goals – to encourage kids to be active and healthy and to raise funds for schools’ P.E. and nutrition programs plan – but with a new game plan. Please check out the following link to see more of the information.

Superintendent Travel Memo Regarding the Evolving COVID-19 Situation

We recognize that Hawai'i State Department of Education (HIDOE) sponsored student travel and professional development are important parts of our overall academic design. In light of the evolving COVID-19 situation, we need to take additional precautionary steps to ensure the health and well-being of our school communities. As such, HIDOE is canceling all school and Department-related travel to the U.S. mainland and international destinations until the end of the 2019-2020 school year, effective March 12.
