Letter from CAS Keith Hui
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.
