HMA Ka Lama Iki Reopening Details
First and foremost, these guidelines can be overwhelming to read all at once. Our first week of school will be quite different, but our teachers will do an excellent job of patiently and intentionally setting up these safety precautions and routines with their students. We do not want students to be fearful and nervous, but educated on proper hand washing and self awareness. Ka Lama Iki will continue to follow all recommended guidelines, although consistently changing, and the office will continue to update and inform you of changes to these guidelines as instructed by the CDC and the Department of Health.
