School Model Survey
June 29, 2020 
Aloha Parents,

Based on the current Department of Health Guidelines, "Hawaii public schools do not have enough classroom space to allow all students to receive face-to-face, in-person instruction with the necessary and proper physical distancing needed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Schools will need to implement distance and blended learning programs to ensure continuity of instructional programming for all students."

We would appreciate your input in helping us select a model that works best for our families and meets the needs of our community.  

Please complete one survey per family by Sunday, July 5, 2020, 11:59 PM.

HIDOE Enrichment & Distance Learning Continues for Remainder of 2019-20 School Year
April 17, 2020 

The Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE) announced today the continuation of enrichment and distance learning through May 28, the last day of the 2019-20 school year. The decision was made based on the latest guidance and information from health officials and elected leaders.

 

“This pandemic has undoubtedly changed the way that education will be delivered at all levels and especially how our Department will operate moving forward,” Superintendent Dr. Christina Kishimoto said. “We have pushed our boundaries and created new ways of delivering on our mission, including expanding distance learning opportunities, establishing an equity of access approach to devices and the internet, and exploring work from home approaches that can help us rethink our real estate footprint for non-instructional staff. I want to acknowledge the resiliency of the HIDOE workforce and thank them for rising to the challenge of looking for innovative ways to move our work forward through this unprecedented time.”

 

On April 2, the Board of Education unanimously approved the Department’s request to modify high school graduation and commencement requirements for the graduating class of 2020. This approval in part helped finalize plans to utilize grades from the third quarter to determine the final grade for student courses. In addition, an announcement was made earlier this week that traditional commencement ceremonies would be replaced with alternative celebrations due to safety concerns and social distancing guidance. Celebrations will occur in the later half of May.

 

The Department’s focus will shift in the coming weeks toward a rollout of summer school, which will largely occur using distance learning, as well as creating a plan for school year 2020-21 given the changing parameters of social distancing and opening of businesses and services. In addition, the Department will initiate a health triage hotline and telehealth service by the end of the month through the Hawaii Keiki program, a partnership between HIDOE and the University of Hawaii at Manoa School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene. The service will provide parents access to a phone line answered by a registered nurse (RN) who can assess physical and mental health needs, connect public school students to services, and follow up with the family to ensure services were received.  

 

School facilities have been closed to students since March 19, but the school system remains open. All HIDOE employees continue to work remotely with the exception of those who are considered essential and must perform their duties at a campus or office.

 

Schools have launched distance learning opportunities and learning packets are distributed via email, school websites and some in-person. The Department has also stood up a resource for parents available at bit.ly/HIDOEVirtualLearningParentResource

 

HIDOE COVID-19 updates will continue to be posted on the Department’s website at hawaiipublicschools.org.

Students Remain At Home Through April 30.
March 25, 2020 

We know these are uncertain and anxious times for everyone in our communities and we sincerely appreciate your patience and aloha as our response to this health crisis continues to evolve and we make the needed adjustments for health and safety.


Based on the latest guidance and information from health officials and our elected leaders, 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.


HIDOE and charter schools will be sending out information about enrichment opportunities, including online resources and instructional packets. We encourage you to look out for information from your child’s school and teachers.


Please know that our public school system is still operating during this crisis. We are using alternative methods as we maximize our telework approach and find ways to remain connected with students. The HIDOE team is actively engaged in providing much-needed, modified services during these unprecedented times, including thousands of meals for children and enrichment opportunities.


We are focused on minimizing disruption for students and supporting their emotional well-being. For tips and tools to navigate and support your child’s continuous learning, please visit bit.ly/HIDOEVirtualLearningParentResource.


By the end of this week, we will be sharing specific plans for our 10,000 eligible graduates. We will also be sharing out next-level information based on the planning work accomplished by our teachers and principals to guide us through the end of the school year.


The Department of Education remains focused on and committed to our educational mission and we look forward to resuming instruction and a sense of normalcy as quickly as possible. Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation.

Preventative Measures and Plans for COVID-19
March 3, 2020 

The Hawai'i State Department of Education(HIDOE) continues to monitor the Coronavirus Disease(COVID-19) situation. HIDOE remains in contact with the Hawai'i Department of Health(DOH), the Governor's office and relevant state agencies to ensure proper prevention measures and plans are in place. This update provides in formation that in the event a student or staff member contracts COVID-19, we will work closely with the DOH to enact a response protocol for the safety and security of our students, families and staff. We want to ensure you that on-campus precautions are being prepared. Maintenance and facility staff are following specific cleaning procedures to effectively clean common areas and classroom surfaces. School Health Assistants and Hawai'i Keiki nurses are being trained on how to properly respond if or when a student becomes ill. Additionally, HIDOE is following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention(CDC) travel guidance. All school-related travel and programs related to Warning Level 3 and Alert Level 2 countries are suspended until the CDC lowers its travel advisory to Watch Level 1. This includes summer school enrollment and non-essential visitors on campus from these countries. We appreciate your understanding that guidance from the CDC may change suddenly. 

This is a quickly evolving situation. We will provide in formation and updates on our website at: http://bit.ly/HIDOE_COVlD19. In preventing the transmission of respiratory illnesses, HIDOE would also like to advise schools and families to follow CDC guidelines: 
• Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing, before eating, and after going to the bathroom; 
• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth; 
• Stay home when sick; 
• Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash; and 
• Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe. 

Thank you for your patience through this process. We appreciate your kind consideration and help with our collective efforts to protect the health and safety of our schools and school communities.

Dengue Virus Notification
November 28, 2019

We have been informed by the state Department of Health that an individual diagnosed with a case of dengue virus was recently in the proximity of our campus. The individual is not a student or staff member but we are addressing this as a universal precaution and are advising everyone to be alert to this situation. 

Dengue is a viral illness spread by mosquitoes and the last reported dengue outbreak on Hawaii Island was from 2015-16. There are not yet any vaccines to prevent dengue virus infection, and the most effective protective measure is to avoid mosquito bites. 

Symptoms of dengue include sudden onset of fever, severe headaches, eye pain, joint and muscle pain, and rash. The rash typically appears on the hands, arms, legs and feet 3 to 4 days after the fever begins. Minor bleeding of nose or gums or easy bruising may also occur. Sometimes, people with dengue have blood clotting problems. When this happens, the illness is called dengue hemorrhagic fever. Symptoms commonly start 4 to 7 days after being bitten by infected mosquitoes, but the onset of symptoms can range from 3 to 14 days. People generally recover within 1 to 2 weeks. 

Dengue is transmitted to people primarily through the bite of an infected mosquito and cannot be transmitted from person-to-person. Over the next few weeks, please monitor your child for fever, rash or other symptoms. If you notice any symptoms of concern, contact your health care provider for specific medical guidance. 

Thank you for your kokua. It is important that we work together to keep our children in good health and everyone benefits from a safe and healthy school environment. If you have any questions about dengue, we encourage you to contact your family healthcare provider or call the DOH Disease Outbreak Control Division at 808-587-6845. For more information, please visit the DOH website at: https://health.hawaii.gov/docd/disease_listing/dengue/
