Kamehameha Schools will soon transition to a new alert system, Rave, dedicated for emergency communications.
Safety is a core value at Kamehameha Schools and one we consider our highest priority. Over the past year, upgrades have been made to our emergency alert and announcement systems on campus, so emergency messages can be delivered effectively and be heard whether in the classroom or in the area outside our buildings.
Another planned upgrade is to our digital system, selecting a dedicated emergency alert system, Rave Alert, rather than using the current day-to-day messaging system for emergencies. Communication is a key component of any successful system, but is critical in an emergency event. By having a dedicated system designed for emergency use, we avoid any outage or maintenance periods, and can communicate whenever it is necessary to do so. Rave also provides on-site coordination and emergency response tools in the event of an emergency.
Parents will soon receive emergency alert from our campus through this new Rave system. To help prepare for this transition, an emergency notification system test is scheduled for this Friday, October 21, 2022, starting at approximately 3:00 pm. This test will send email, voice, and text alerts to ʻohana contacts identified in Infinite Campus. This Friday's test will be a broad Kamehameha Schools system-wide test before the system is launched this year. The test for ʻohana will include all three methods of contact:
To prepare for the test, we do ask if you can please login and verify that your contact information is correct in Infinite Campus and update if necessary.
Mahalo in advance for your cooperation and understanding of the required testing.
As this is only a test, you are not required to respond to the messages. If you do not receive the alerts, contact the KS Resource Center at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (808) 534-8080.
