Mar. 17, 2020

In response to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation, Kamehameha Schools announced all three of its K-12 campuses and its 29 preschools will implement their respective distance learning and educational support programs when school resumes after their respective spring breaks. During this period, there will be no on-campus student instruction or student activities.

KS will review continuously the situation with the hope of resuming on-campus instruction and activities. KS will provide updates, at least weekly, as it considers conditions in the community along with guidance from state and federal health officials.
