Aloha Staff and Families –
 
Based on the latest guidance and information from health officials and our elected leaders, the Hawai‘i State Department of Education (HIDOE) and Kualapuu PCCS 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. Please see the link for the full letter from the Hawaii DOE. –>  http://www.hawaiipublicschools.org/DOE%20Forms/Emergencies/2020-03-24-Extended-Closure-LTP.pdf
 
Also, if you would like some tips and resources about working with your children at home, please visit the link provided by the Hawaii DOE. 
 
Kualapu`u Staff will officially return to school on March 30thDuring this week, we will be working remotely with our instructional staff to plan and prepare distance learning options for your children.  Our plan is to have some kind of distance learning activities to Kualapuu students by Tuesday, April 7th.  Also, we ask for your patience as this is a new venture for us as a school, and as well for many of our families with young children.  Finally, if you have not done so, please complete our Kualapuu Distance Learning survey, please do so here — >  https://forms.gle/afZEe99CiRv4L5Fw6
 
Again–Stay Safe!
