KS Hawai‘i Return to Campus Safely

Our next normal

Find all of the information you will need to understand new safety measures and what learning may will look like at our kula this year. 

Kamehameha Schools continues to ensure a consistent standard for when anyone is on campus, including a robust set of health and safety measures. Our entire organization has made a commitment to give you and your keiki options for learning that best meet your ʻohana’s needs. Understanding these learning models and the safety measures we are implementing are important to understanding the kuleana we all share in keeping our community safe.

See the COVID-19 weekly tracking data on our KS COVID-19 website.

Hybrid Learning Moving Forward

In December, Kamehameha Schools announced plans to remain in Hybrid Learning for the rest of the school year. Doing so enables a combination of face-to-face interaction and distance learning as appropriate at each school level. Interactions are voluntary and recognize the importance of choice for each ʻohana based on their unique situation. A distance learning only option was available to ʻohana before the start of the second half of the year as well. Our kauhale is firmly committed to supporting the needs of all our learners. Details have been and will continue to be shared by poʻo kumu about specific opportunities for haumāna. 

Kamehameha Schools has updated it’s COVID-19 safety protocols for students who will be on-campus or participate in face-to-face onsite activities. Like our faculty and staff, students (or their parents on their behalf) should complete a daily wellness check-in prior to arrival at their bus stop, or on-campus if not catching the bus, each morning.

  • The check-in is a simple, web-based form that asks you to take an additional step in making sure you are not experiencing any COVID-19 related symptoms or evaluate if you have been impacted by any higher risk activities.
  • A clearance (green happy face) is required to come on-campus or onsite and the confirmation email will need to be shown via a device prior to boarding. See the Student Wellness Check notice for more information on this new safety protocol: Student Wellness Check-In: What You Need to Know 
  • A paper form will be provided if a device is not available.

Distance Learning Plan

Here is an overview for ʻohana of the distance learning plan in place this year. The plan was created so we can be flexible in shifting within our learning models as conditions may dictate so we can always prioritize the health and safety of our students, faculty, and staff.
