Aloha Waimalu Elementary Families:
As you may have already heard, Superintendent Kishimoto announced that all public schools will be closed for the remainder of the school year. Although the announcement was not unexpected, it saddened all of us, knowing how hard you, your children, and our teachers and staff worked this year. This decision was made as a matter of health and safety for all, so I completely support our superintendent.
Our teachers remain committed to ensuring continuity of learning, and will continue to reach out to our families, provide online learning resources, and printed instructional resources. All resources for the rest of the school year will be available no later than Monday, May 4. Information regarding the pick up of these packets, as well as the school supplies and other materials is forthcoming.
Within the next day or two, you will be receiving a quick survey via email from your child’s teacher. This survey just asks if your child will be returning to Waimalu next year, or will be going to another school. Please complete this survey no later than Wednesday, April 22. If you are unable to respond by email, someone from our school will be contacting you by phone. Thank you very much for your patience and cooperation during this very challenging time.
Mr. Glen Iwamoto, Principal
