Hawaii Students Back in the Classroom
The Hawaii conference opened their schools on Monday, Aug. 3. In preparation for their opening, teachers at Ka Lama Iki campus of Hawaiian Mission Academy filmed a back-to-school video demonstrating their new drop off and pickup procedure for parents, as well as to show the safety precautions in place so that students can maintain social distance while participating in on-campus learning. “We’re ready,” said Sarah Traczyk, principal of Ka Lama Iki. “We’ve been prepping, and we are going to keep students safe.” During their first week back, students enjoyed STEM icebreakers, socially distant playground time, and getting to see their teachers and friends.
