HIDOE COVID-19 Information and Updates
The Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE) is working closely with the Hawaii Department of Health (DOH) on guidance for our students, teachers, parents and staff to prepare for and prevent the possible arrival of COVID-19 disease at school campuses. In close coordination with DOH, existing HIDOE emergency response plans are being adapted for future implementation when needed to help stop the spread of the disease. Detailed communications from schools are planned to keep parents notified should the situation arise. Please view the COVID-19 resources on the Hawaii State Department of Education website and learn about specific steps you can take to avoid it.
Student Meal Service
During the extended closure, HIDOE will continue to provide student meals, including providing grab-and-go breakfast and lunch at select schools to children 18 years and under at the following days and times:
- Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 8 a.m. for breakfast.
- Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. for lunch.
- Note: Meals will not be served on Thursday, March 26 in observance of Prince Kuhio Day. Some schools may start serving meals later in the week.
A list of the pick-up sites is available here. The locations were selected based on criteria including a high number of students eligible for the Free and Reduced Price Lunch Program and geography. HIDOE is monitoring the situation and may add additional sites if necessary.
