Letter from CAS Keith Hui

9/30/2020

Dear Lehua Families,

Yesterday, our Complex Area Superintendent, Mr. Keith Hui sent a letter to Pearl City and Waipahu schools to officially announce the plans for 2nd Quarter. The decision was made to continue with distance learning through second quarter to December 18, 2020. As explained in the letter, all of the Leeward District schools will also be continuing with distance learning. We understand that for many of you, this extension of distance learning will cause some hardship for your family. Our teachers and staff are doing their best to provide effective instruction and activities to support your child’s academic and social growth. We will continue to work together to improve our systems and appreciate all that you are doing to support your child/children.

Mr. Fukuhara

Principal

Dear Lehua Families,


Attached is a letter from our Complex Area Superintendent, Mr. Keith Hui regarding distance learning plans for Quarter 2. As announced from last week’s press conference by Superintendent Kishimoto, schools will look towards the Department of Health’s Guidance for Schools when making decisions on whether or not students would return to campus. Our complex area is discussing a possible staggered approach to bringing students back, but we will start the second quarter like we are now with distance learning. Please see the letter for more information.

Thank you,

Mr. Fukuhara
