Families of ʻĪao School,

Reopening of School (5/26/20): Starting June 1, 2020 our Main Office windows will be open for business from 7:30 AM to 3:30 PM. Visitors are asked to wear a mask and maintain 6 ft. of distance from others at all times. Please do not come to campus if you have a fever, cough or other symptoms. Information about the July registration events will be shared soon.

Retrieving Student Belongings (5/26/20): Teachers have organized student work, personal belongings, and locker contents that we need to get back to kids. You must call the Main Office (727-5200) to arrange for pick-up. Items not retrieved by June 12 will be donated to charity.

Returning School Property and Uniform Donations (5/26/20): From instruments to books to equipment, many students still have school items with them that need to be returned. To do so, please visit the Main Office during business hours starting June 1. Please bring clean, gently used Uniform shirts that you wish to donate. Uniforms do not need to be bagged. Used uniforms serve as loaners for students that come to school out of dress code. All families that donate one or more uniforms will receive a small prize.

The following teachers have classroom items to pick up as well:

1. Ms. Yaps 8th Grade BPA Class

2. Ms. Johanos 8th Grade ELA Class

3. Ms. Collias/Mr.Kawamata's 6th Grade ELA Class

Recovery Summer School and UPLINK Summer School (5/11/20):

Students that fail core classes for the year will be automatically enrolled in our Recovery Summer School. Our Summer School teachers will be contacting these families to provide more information on the week of May 25. If you are unsure if your child passed all their classes for the year, please contact teachers or counselors directly. (Link to Directory) In addition, ʻĪao School will be offering UPLINK Summer School to a limited number of interested students. Available topics include STEM Coding, Foreign Languages, Social-Emotional Learning and various Career and Technical courses. This is strictly for enrichment - students may not take next year's core classes to receive advanced credit. REGISTRATION FOR UPLINK SUMMER SCHOOL IS CLOSED AS OF MAY 27. Both Recovery and UPLINK Summer School are free and will be done on Acellus, an online learning system. Computers and wireless will be provided to families as needed. For more information please contact the UPLINK Director, Emelita Inosanto, by emailing emelita.inosanto@k12.hi.us or call 727-5200.


Summer Learning Hubs for English Learners and Special Education students:

ʻĪao School is offering free Summer Learning Hubs for all of our English Learner (EL) and Special Education students. These Learning Hubs will run from June 8 to July 2 and will all be done remotely (online). Learning will focus on student needs and will help them continue to progress academically. If you need a laptop or wireless we can help you. If you are interested, please complete the form below by June 3. You will be contacted by one of the teachers next week. Thanks and we hope you take advantage of this opportunity.


Student Grades and Failures:

Year grades for students will be comprised of the grades they received in Quarters 1, 2, and 3. No grade will be given for Quarter 4. For the remainder of the year, teachers will be working with Failing students to bring up their Year grades to pass. Students are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity so that they do not have to enroll in Recovery Summer School and so that they do not have to repeat a grade. If you have concerns about your childʻs grades please contact the teacher or counselor directly through email. Link to Staff Directory


Student Meals Updates (5/26/20): Meal service will continue at ʻĪao School through the Summer break, every weekday, 7:30 AM to 8:00 AM and 11:30 AM to 12:00 PM. Parents may also request Special Meals for their children (gluten free, diabetic, etc.) by sending an email to specialdiets@k12.hi.us. Enter Market Street if picking up by car, enter Kaohu Street if picking up on foot. Follow all signs. The final day for Summer meals is July 17.
