What’s New?

With the rapidly changing pandemic landscape, we look to the DOE and DOH for the latest information.
We have selected content specific to parents and educators who are directly helping our keiki.

Guidance for Schools

The DOH COVID-19 guidance for schools is intentionally layered, flexible, and aligned with CDC guidance. Each school is different, and not every strategy outlined in this guidance can be practically implemented at every school. Therefore, multiple mitigation strategies are described.

Find DOE guidelines on your situation based upon these categories:

  1. Negative COVID-19 Test
  2. At Least 10 Days
  3. Doctor’s Note At Least 10 Days †
