All public schools and Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE) offices will be open tomorrow, Thursday, Sept. 13 except for Kilohana Elementary. All afterschool activities will resume statewide.
“We will continue to work with county and state partners to monitor the weather through the night for Maui County and Kauai. If there are any updates for these areas, we will let the public know right away,” said Superintendent Dr. Christina Kishimoto. “Our schools were able to get through the storm largely in great shape; however, certain areas have family homes that were highly impacted. We appreciate everyone’s support and patience, and urge our school communities to remain vigilant through the rest of Hurricane Season.”
HIDOE will continue to provide updates about cancellations and closures on our website and social media — Twitter and Facebook. Parents are encouraged to work with their child's school to ensure they have the most up-to-date contact information for their household.
Families of students in charter schools are asked to contact their schools directly to learn about closures, or visit the Public Charter School Commission's website.
As of 5 p.m. this evening, Olivia continues to weaken and move away from the state. Tropical Storm Warnings for Oahu and Maui County have been discontinued. For more information, visit the Central Pacific Hurricane Center's website.
