Aloha Pūʻōhala School Ohana:
This is a message specifically for those picking up Grab n Go meals at Pūʻōhala. Beginning MONDAY, APRIL 12th, grab and go will only be for Pūʻōhala students. We will no longer be providing meals for non-Pū'ōhala School ʻohana. The other major change is the time of pickups. Grab n go will be 10:45-10:55 am as we found we have a very small group of ʻohana picking up meals and most of our students are now in school! Which is a great thing!
If you are our ʻohana but pick up meals elsewhere, please check that particular school's website, or check the HIDOE website for updates. Other schools may be going through similar changes.
What we do know as of today, is these schools will continue to feed the community in the Waimanalo to Hau'ula areas:
He'eia, Hau'ula, Kahalu'u, Parker, King, Kapunahala, Pope, Waimanalo, Kailua High, Kailua Inter, and Keolu.

Aloha Pūʻōhala Families,
Thank you for your efforts and patience during this week as we navigate through this pandemic. I wanted to send my aloha to all families, students, teachers, and staff who have dedicated their time and energy to make this year special. Mahalo Piha!
The affected areas on our campus have been professionally cleaned and sanitized to ensure our campus is safe for everyone who enters. The faculty and staff of Ke Kula Kaiapuni ʻo Pūʻōhala School have made some adjustments to how we operate on campus and how we communicate upon reflection of our most recent incident. We will continue to make adjustments as necessary based on data and science as it becomes available and as it changes to ensure that our school and students are safe.
Thank you again for your understanding and resilience. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, or wonderings, do not hesitate to respond to this email or to call our office (808)305-5900, and I will be happy to listen and talk story. Mahalo nui.
Tinker & Do will be hosting virtual STEM events for our ʻohana. Please join us for either of these events.
RSVP by Wednesday, March 3, 2021 to reserve the Robot event kits. The kits will be available for pick up at the your respective school on Monday, March 8th.
Please contact Summer Sakai (email@example.com or (808) 305-5900), if you have additional questions.
Aloha Pūʻōhala School parents and guardians,
I have been made aware that one of our students was recently diagnosed with COVID-19. We are in contact with the family and have sent our aloha for a speedy recovery. This individual was last on campus Thursday, Feb. 18. Out of respect for this person’s privacy, I won’t be sharing additional information.
Our school is taking the necessary precautions, including notifying potential close contacts, closing the impacted areas and sanitizing, coordinating next steps with the Hawaiʻi State Department of Education’s COVID-19 Response Team, and sharing case information with the Hawaiʻi State Department of Health (DOH).
The DOH is the lead agency when it comes to contact tracing. If you have any concerns, I encourage you to speak with your healthcare provider or DOH using these options, calling the Aloha United Way help desk at 211 or health.hawaii.gov/docd/contact-us. (copy and paste in address bar)
We have the ability to play a significant role in combating this pandemic. I urge everyone to do their part both on and off-campus, including following county, state, and federal requirements to stop the spread of the virus. Please continue to practice physical distancing, wear a mask, wash your hands frequently, and avoid unnecessary social gatherings.
As a reminder, before coming onto campus, please do a wellness check using the following guidance attachment 2020-11-12 Wellness Check.pdf . Individuals exhibiting any symptoms or who have been directed to quarantine by the DOH should not come to campus. If someone in your household has been tested for COVID-19 or exhibiting symptoms, please call before coming to campus to assess the situation and determine if a visit is necessary and/or appropriate.
