School starts on Monday August 17. For the first week of school, we will have our high school students come in for 1/2 days each day.  The schedule for the first week of school is as follows:

11:45am - 2:30pm daily - School lunch will be offered from 11:00- 11:45. High school students are also welcome to come in and get breakfast, which will also be available from 7:45 - 8:30am each day.

Starting August 17:

Grades 9-12 will have a blended face-to-face and virtual learning program.

HS students will be on campus during B Weeks (Weeks, 4,6,8,10)

The regular school day both on campus and at home will be 8:30 am - 2:30pm

Class sizes will be decreased to 18-19 students per class to allow for social distancing.

HS students will receive live, virtual lessons at home during A weeks (Weeks, 3, 5,7, 9) 

High school teachers will teach the live virtual lessons and will take official attendance each class period in Powerschool during virtual weeks. 

All virtual work will be graded and all Student Handbook rules will apply during virtual weeks.

Supply Lists

*Please note that student supply lists will be given out on the first day of school.  Our high school students each have different schedules, and take different classes. Each teacher will hand out their individual supply list to the students on the first day of school.  They will also post their list on their Google Classroom page.

**Also note that we will be asking all of our students to bring 2 face masks to school each day, and a water bottle. We will be asking students to wear masks throughout the day, if possible, and we will also be covering up all water fountains. Students will only be able to get water from the auto fill stations around the school to eliminate contact with the fountains.

Safety Protocols

Safety will be the #1 priority for the 2020-2021 school year.

Students, staff and visitors should use face coverings that cover the mouth and nose. 
Face masks will be required when 6 feet of social distancing is difficult or not possible.

Students will remain within their cohort (bubble) throughout the day as much as possible, and should not interface with other cohorts.

Safety and sanitation products will be accessible in every classroom, meeting room, eating area and office.

Signage will be posted throughout the campus with proper safety protocol and detailed instructions for social distancing.

Staff will be trained and students will be instructed on how to be as safe as possible while on school grounds.

Parent Expectations

We request that parents take the temperature of their children each morning before school. If the child has a higher than normal temperature, then the child should remain at home.

We request that parents provide their children with two masks everyday.  If the child does not have a mask, the school will provide one.

If a student displays symptoms of an illness, he or she will be escorted to the health room for a temperature check. If the health aide determines that the student is ill and needs to be sent home, a parent will be immediately notified to come to the school and pick up the child.

We request that you help educate your child as much as possible with respect to the changing times,  especially with reminders about the importance of safety protocol.

Information Technology

Phil Schmidt - IT

Kihei Charter School has determined that it is important to introduce a new communications tool called Anonymous Alerts®. Anonymous Alerts® allows students or parents to quickly, easily, and anonymously report urgent information to school officials across all of our school campuses. The system encourages students, parents and staff to confidentially report bullying, cyber-bullying, and other sensitive topics through private messages to our administration. Kihei Charter School does not support, encourage or tolerate any behavior that prevents any student from reaching their full potential.

We also believe that the best way to address problems that our students face in school is personal contact with a teacher, school administrator, psychologist or counselor and we strongly encourage and fully support that continued practice. However, we do know that sometimes there is a concern that a student or parent may want to communicate anonymously.

How do I place an incident report from Internet connected computers/tablets?

  1. 1)  Go to from any Internet connected device.

  2. 2)  Click on the web button called “Anonymous Alerts”. Fill out your incident report.

How do I place a report from an iPhone or Android phone?

1) From the iPhone Store, download the free app by searching for “Anonymous Alerts”. If you have an Android phone, go to the Play Store, search for “Anonymous Alerts” and download.

a. After downloading the app, click on it, enter activation code kiheicc

The mobile apps and Web-based reporting system provides secure 1-way or 2-way encrypted messages, increasing the flow of important information to school officials. Message topics for submission may include bullying, cyber-bullying, family difficulties, self-harm/cutting, drug and alcohol abuse, student depression, sexual harassment, gang related issues or strange/abnormal student behavior.

All reports remain completely anonymous, although submitters have the option to reveal their identity if they prefer to have a person-to-person discussion. The program is monitored from 9AM until 2PM, and should only be used for serious and urgent matters. Indeed, if something disturbing or life threatening occurs at other times, it is imperative to call 911.

We feel that we have a responsibility to offer this tool to our community in order to protect the safety of our students, providing avenues for confidential disclosure when there is something serious that is troubling them.

At Kihei Charter School, our goal is to enhance the student’s learning experience and limit any roadblocks to a student’s success, giving everyone the opportunity to succeed.
