Hawaiian Mission Academy is back to in-classroom instruction. They had adjusted to online learning from March 13 to the close of the last school year, but over the summer months, it was decided that classes could resume, earlier than normal. Students and staff have transitioned beautifully to the new guidelines and school started on Aug. 3. Every morning, students are required to come into the school office and get their temperature checked by a thermal camera, nicknamed “TERK” by the students. When they arrive in the classroom, desks are spread out according to CDC guidelines. The staff sprays the desks with disinfectant, while students wipe their own desk down with the cloth they received that morning. Chapels are currently still being conducted virtually through Zoom, with each class remaining in their homeroom. Even though school events, such as vespers, socials, and sports are not yet approved by the city and county, students are happy that most of their school routine has been approved.
