Student travel

Updated: April 15, 2021

As our state and county governments take steps toward reopening our islands for trans-Pacific travel, we recognize some families may want to take advantage of this opportunity for personal travel. With this in mind, we’ve updated our travel guidelines for KS students to account for personal travel (and the associated risk), reflecting not only our commitment to protect the health and safety of our KS community but also to manage community spread. Our travel guidelines are also informed by peer review, including current practices at other large independent schools and county, state, and federal guidelines.

As a result, we will implement the following changes for any travel that occurs beginning on Monday, Oct. 26, for students and staff who will be participating in school activities on campus:

  • KS students and employees who travel interisland or out of state on their personal time must follow all applicable state and county rules, including compliance with any required quarantine periods.
  • Parents should inform school administrators of their plans prior to their family/child’s travel.
  • Parents must provide a provide a screenshot of their child’s Safe Travels Program Clearance, when applicable.
  • These guidelines will apply to all vendors/contractors who may need to be physically present at a KS campus.
  • KS will not schedule any school-related travel, interisland or out of state, for the second semester or Summer 2021.
