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
