Safety will be the #1 priority for the 2023-2024 school year.
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 if required.
Staff will be trained and students will be instructed on how to be as safe as possible while on school grounds.
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 masks when required. 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.

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) Go to https://anonymousalerts.com/kiheicc from any Internet connected device
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.
