Testing will be offered every Tuesday thru the month of April 2022. Testing time is from 2 - 6pm with the last testing occurring at 5:30pm.

We are encouraging people to come early because CVS will only bring a specific amount of tests and once they run out testing will shut down. Registration will be done via hard copy that will be available at the testing site. Participants must present an ID at testing. All students under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent to the testing.

As the 2021-2022 school year opens, Kalihi Kai School (KKS) continues to adjust to COVID-19 and how it has changed the way we deliver education safely and effectively to our students. We remain a “community of innovative lifelong learners,” and with the flexibility, synergy, and support of all stakeholders, we will continue to provide a quality education for all of our students. The “why” of educating our students has not changed, only “how” the instruction and support is delivered to ensure a safe and productive learning environment. This document provides essential and up-to-date information regarding Kalihi Kai’s school plan as we address the changing landscape of education during this pandemic. Read more

Governor Ige’s recent Executive Order requires all individuals 12 years and older visiting a Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE) school or office to provide documentation of being fully vaccinated or a negative COVID-19 test result (within the past 72 hours). However, due to the high enrollment at KKS and the difficulty in monitoring the status of all campus visitors, the school will not be checking COVID-19 vaccine and testing documents; instead, KKS will require families to vacate the campus within 10 minutes for drop-off and pick-up in order to comply with the Executive Order. We apologize for any inconvenience, but we are mandated to comply with this order. We hope that this advanced notice will allow families to modify their schedules and routines.

The following are NOT subject to this mandate: Enrolled HIDOE (KKS) students, visitors under the age of 12, and individuals remaining on campus for no more than 10 minutes. However, this mandate DOES apply to parents, guardians, and other family members.

KKS will be implementing the following changes to its Drop-off & Pick-up procedures starting Monday, September 27, 2021, in order to adhere to Governor Ige’s Executive Order and to increase health and safety protocols: Read more
