Aloha KCS 'Ohana,

We are very excited about the return of the students tomorrow!

Today we are sending a general reminder of the latest Covid-19 school guidance from the Hawaii State Department of Health.

Staying up to date on vaccinations is recommended as a mitigating strategy to prevent the spread of illness. More information can be accessed at hawaiicovid19.com/vaccine.

Individual case investigation, close contact identification, and quarantine of in-school exposures are not recommended for routine in-school exposures.

Masks are optional indoors and outdoors for students and staff. However, indoor masking is highly encouraged (but not required) when Covid-19 community levels are medium or high. As of today, the Covid-19 community level in Maui is classified as high.

Lastly, families should continue to screen their children for symptoms of illness each morning before sending them to school. If they are sick, please keep them at home. If any of our students exhibit one or more symptoms while at school, they will be sent to the school health aide, and parents will be asked to pick them up.

We are sharing the Health and Safety Resource Guide for Families again for your review. It can also be accessed on our homepage at kiheicharter.org.

We appreciate all your support and look forward to a safe, healthy, and prosperous new school year,

Aloha KCS 'Ohana,

We hope you had a wonderful summer break with your ‘ohana and are now ready to begin an exciting new school year!

Today we write with an update on the opening plans for the 2022-2023 school year. Listed below are the details of our K-12 program.

 

2022-2023 School Calendar - See attached

The 2022-2023 school year will start on Monday, August 1st for all students.

2022-2023 School Calendar 

 

K-12 Schedules

Grades K-2 will attend on-campus classes each day from 8:00 am - 2:00 pm. Students will be released early on Wednesdays at 1:00 pm.

Grades 3-5 will attend on-campus classes each day from 8:15 am - 2:15 pm. Students will be released early on Wednesdays at 1:15 pm.

Grades 6-8 will attend on-campus classes each day from 8:30 am - 2:30 pm. Students will be released early on Wednesdays at 1:30 pm.

Grades 9-12 will attend on-campus classes each day from 8:30 am - 2:30 pm. Students will be released early on Wednesdays at 1:30 pm.

 

Drop-off and Pick-up

The campus will open each morning at 7:30 am. There will be no campus supervision prior to that time.

Students are to be dropped off in front of the school building off Lipoa Parkway.

Students will be directed by staff members to supervised areas of the campus prior to the start of the school day.

Students are to be picked up at the end of each school day at the same location.

We request that parents do not arrive early for pick-up as this often creates added traffic and slows the pick-up process.

 

Food Service

Breakfast and lunch will be available to students every day.

Breakfast will be offered from 7:30 am - 8:30 am. 

 

Afterschool Programs

 

Aftercare will be available for students in grades K-2 starting on Tuesday, August 2nd. The hours will be 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Kihei Youth Center at the Kihei Charter School Campus will be available for students in grades 3-6 starting on Tuesday, August 2nd. Families must contact the Kihei Youth Center directly (kiheiyouthcenter.info) to sign up. The hours will be 2:15 pm - 5:00 pm.

 

Health and Safety Protocols

Safety will continue to be the priority for the 2022-2023 school year.

Our safety plan will remain in alignment with the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, Department of Health, County of Maui, and the State of Hawaii.

Distancing, daily sanitation, classroom/office ventilation, safety signage, general hygienic practices, and other recommended protocols will remain in place.

Masking will be optional indoors and outdoors. Indoor masking will be highly encouraged when community transmission levels are medium and high. Universal indoor masking or targeted indoor masking will be strongly recommended in specific situations such as high absenteeism, a cluster of cases, and outbreak.

Please see the attached KCS Family Resource Guide for more details.

In Closing

We look forward to the return of the students and hope to provide a safe, positive, and productive experience for all our ‘ohana. As always, we will continue to monitor our plans and make any necessary adjustments along the way. Please watch for a series of communications as more information about our program will be shared by our faculty and staff in the coming days. Lastly, we thank you for all your support along the way.

All the best and please take care, 

The KCS Team
