Friday, 3/27/2020 Letter to Student and Parents

For our students:



To all Lahainaluna students, first of all, we want to say – We Miss You! We hope you are all doing well and are ready to connect with each other and your teachers. Starting Monday, March 30th, please begin checking your school Gmail account. Your teachers are anxious to check in and re-connect with each of you. Help is also available for you every step of the way. If you are stuck or having a difficult time, please text or call (808)664-0317. We can’t wait to hear from you.





For our Parents:



Aloha Parents and Ohana of Lahainaluna High School,



Let me begin by saying how much we miss all of our 900+ students. We are concerned for our student’s health and well-being, as well as their families. We would like to thank everyone for your patience and support, especially our health professionals, grocery store employees, first responders and all other essential operations personnel.



As we embark in “Distance Learning”, the teachers and staff of Lahainaluna are committed to serving our most important assets – your children! The next few weeks will not be easy. There will be mistakes, problems, and concerns along the way. However, there will be more successes, happiness, hope, laughter, fun and purpose! We understand many of you may be experiencing this crisis differently. Please know we are here to patiently support our students and you throughout this challenging time. Please do not stress over the schoolwork via distance learning or printed packets. Encourage your child to read daily, journal about what they have been doing, or help prepare a meal where Math and Science can become hands on learning! Our mental health is also extremely important. Enjoy this time with your child, play games, communicate, reduce technology use and spend quality time together while we are required to stay at home. Be creative!



Lahainaluna High School will continue to communicate information and updates through our weekly email blast, our school website and facebook page, and mass phone-messaging system. Please let us know how else we can help.



Lastly, don’t forget, all students can be provided breakfast and lunch daily at Lahaina Intermediate School with a drive by pickup. Students must be present in the vehicle. Breakfast is served from 7-8:30 am and lunch is served from 10:30 – 12 noon. Stay at home, stay healthy, and feel free to reach out to us. We will continue to learn and strive together to meet the needs of our sons and daughters during this challenging time.



Mahalo,

TA Principal Jeri Dean, LHS Teachers and STAFF

Class of 2020 Scholarship Information

Good afternoon seniors!

I have had many inquiries about scholarship applications and their deadlines. Here's what I want you to do:

1. Download a "PDF Scanner App" from your phone or tablet's App Store. I checked Google Play Store and the App Store on my ipad, they both have a few good FREE options.

2. Using the downloaded app, scan (take a picture) of each page of your scholarship application and email it to me by the posted deadline on the Scholarship Bulletin. You must email me only the scholarships that say to submit your application to me. All the other scholarships must be mailed to the address they provided by the deadline that they provided.

3. Transcripts - I am hyperlinking the Transcript page from our school's website for easier access.
- Print the Transcript Request Form.
- Fill it out with a blue or black ink pen.
- Take a picture of it using your new Scanner App.
- Email the form to this email: 414transcripts@lahaina.k12.hi.us

***The Foodland Scholarship application requirements have been amended (changed) by Foodland. To complete the application you must submit the 2 page application form only. You do NOT need to submit a recommendation, test scores or transcript. Your application must be emailed to me by 11:59pm on Monday, March 23. Currently we are in 2nd Place for the Foodland Shop for Higher Education Contest, this contest determines how many Foodland scholarships we receive. PLEASE SHOP AT FOODLAND!!! The contest ends on Friday, March 27.

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to email or text me through the Remind App.

- If you don't have the Remind App I am attaching an instruction sheet on how to join. Connect it to your cell phone NOT email, I know students always check their text messages.

Take care and stay healthy everyone!
