COVID-19

The health and safety of our keiki are of utmost importance, especially in difficult and uncertain times. We at Kūlaniākea would like to share the precautions and procedures we have implemented to help ensure the health and safety of our keiki and ‘ohana. We are following the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control:

Clean your hands often

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.

Avoid close contact

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Put distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community. This is especially important for people who are at higher risk of getting very sick.

Clean and disinfect

  • Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily. This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
  • If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.

If you think you have been exposed to or are exhibiting any symptoms associated with COVID-19, please call your healthcare provider for medical advice. For more information please visit hawaiicovid19.com and www.cdc.gov.

Kūlaniākea has been a blessing to our ʻohana. The staff at Kūlaniakea focus on the needs of not only the individual child and the classroom as a whole, but ALSO the needs of the ʻOHANA. I have complete confidence that my keiki will grow to know who they are as a kanaka, and in turn have a strong foundation for future education and life skills.

Leilani, makua

As kanaka ‘ōiwi educators, Kūlaniākea understands the kuleana we have to both our youth and lāhui. Their instruction, curriculum and teaching approaches are deeply rooted to culture-based education which engages, supports and empowers our keiki, even at their young age.  We are so blessed to be part of the Kūlaniākea ‘ohana!
