More than a week after the destructive wildfires broke out, Kamehameha Schools Maui, ʻA’apueo and Paukūkalo preschool haumāna returned to their classrooms. A great deal of planning and care has been taken by kumu and staff to ensure haumāna and their ʻohana have the necessary resources needed for both the short and long term.
