Health updates: KS Hawai‘i

Preserving In-Person Learning


Kamehameha Schools Hawaiʻi is committed to preserving in-person learning for our students and teachers. After nearly 1 ½ years in distance and hybrid schedules, our haumāna need and will benefit from in-person learning experiences. We recognize that the pandemic is still with us, with the rates of community spread of variants bouncing up and down. We continue to encourage COVID-19 vaccinations, as the leading public health strategy, and best way to stay and keep yourself and others safe. We are thankful that conditions have improved significantly, and we have begun to safely reduce the requirements and improve learning experiences for our keiki. Mahalo to everyone for accepting the personal kuleana to do what is necessary for our kauhale to get to this point. We trust that each of us will continue to embrace the kuleana of caring for ourselves, our loved ones, and those in our school community.

Layers of safety still in place - 

  • Masking indoors 
  • Distancing where and to the extent possible
  • Enhanced ventilation and cleaning
  • Testing resources available


COVID-19 testing is available on campus for any Kamehameha Hawaiʻi students and employees who does wish to be tested as an additional precaution and layer of safey. Participation in testing is voluntary. It also remains a resource for haumāna voluntarily participating in athletics to meet the exemption requirements for BIIF and HHSAA competition. KS-sponsored testing is conducted via rapid antigen testing, currently provided by Premier Medical Group (PMG). There is a testing station located outside of Lunalilo Hale on the elementary side, open Monday to Friday, 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. (unless campus is closed). Extended hours to 3 p.m. on Monday, with drive-thru testing from 3:30 - 5 p.m. outside of the Charles Reed Bishop Learning Center in the elementary pickup area is also available on most Mondays. See our testing calendar with dates and hours for more information. If you need your Health-ID QR code again, or if you don't already have an account, ʻohana may create or access an account at and follow the steps, and complete the consent waiver for testing with PMG.

Effective March 28, 2022, KS' testing requirement for students in grades 6-12, and as an accomodation for employees with an exemption to the vaccination requirement has been suspended, reflecting the improving conditions in our community and updated guidance.
