A High Performing Hawaii Public Charter School

School Year 2020-2021 Application Info Session Information

NOTE: Meals will not be served on Thursday, March 26, in observance of Prince Kuhio Day.
Aloha KCS 'Ohana,
Due to the stay-at-home order for Hawaii residents from March 25 - April 30, students will not return to campus on Tuesday, April 7. Instead, a distance learning program will be offered to the students of Kihei Charter School from March 30 - April 30.
Our school has a long history of utilizing distance learning to prepare our students for life in the 21st century. Our team is now developing a customized virtual education program that will best serve our students and families during this challenging time. We are confident that our plan of action will have a positive impact on all our 'ohana.
Starting on Monday, March 30, we will begin offering enrichment opportunities for students, which include online activities, projects, and instructional packets. These opportunities are meant to promote continuity of learning during prolonged school closure. 
As always, we aim to keep the bar high at all times. Thus, we will do all that we can to work closely with students and families to help ensure that everyone has access to educational resources. 
School personnel will be reaching out to students and families with more details regarding these plans.
Please see the attached memo from the Office of the Superintendent for additional information. Extended Closure
