COVID-19 Update #7

Aloha Lions Ohana,

I hope this message finds you all well.  I have a number of announcements for you today. 

  1. As you have likely heard, Hawaii schools will not resume normal operations this school year.  We will continue with distance learning, i.e. eLearning and packet pickup through May 28th.
  2. Spring pictures are available for pickup during our normal Monday through Thursday 10 am- 1 pm packet pickup times.  
  3. At some point and time, we will be scheduling days for students to come in to pick up personal items.  We will get you this information as soon as we can.
  4. Kindergarten registration will be resuming soon.  Please call for an appointment or wait for our registration drives both on and off-campus once these are announced. 
  5. Free breakfast and lunch will continue to be served at Dole and Farrington through at least May 28th for students 18 and under.
  6. Kokua Kalihi Valley 2229 N. School St. is offering free lunch to families on Fridays from 10-noon.  Please email for more information. 
  7. We have been receiving some donations for students to receive laptop computers during this time of need. We will continue to distribute them by order of need for students at risk.  If you have or know of anyone who has used laptops available for student use please drop them off at the school during packet pickup times. 
  8. Many facility maintenance projects are happening on campuses throughout the state as there are no/few students on campus.  If you see construction or maintenance, please stand clear for your safety.
  9. Our air conditioning project has been canceled due to budget shortfalls. 
  10. Please remember to check our school website for links to helpful information and updates. 

In this time of need and difficulty, it is important to reach out for help if you need it.  Please contact the school if you have any needs.  We may not be able to help you directly, but we may know people who can.  We are an ohana and we are here to help.  Stay strong Lions.  

We are the Lions.  We are the Future.
