This is your K-V-I-K-S Morning Bulletin.
My name is Tats and here are your announcements for Tuesday, April 7th, 2020.
Today, you will be focusing on your periods one, three, five, and seven! Please do the assignments sent to you by your teachers and participate in any tele-conferencing opportunity if possible.
As you know, Hilo High School is currently providing both electronic, and paper copies of distance learning. These packets are called Enrichment Packets. The point of these packets is to provide a continuation of education, so that in the event that school resumes again, students are not falling behind. Because of the drastic change in circumstances, we understand that not all students have equal access to do the assignments. According to the Hawaii Department of Education, any enrichment work will not count towards a student’s grade. However, some of our teachers may be using a grading scale to provide feedback. So do not be alarmed if you receive a score on an assignment. Instead, follow up with your teacher to understand what that means.
While most of our teachers have opted to use only electronic means of enrichment, and provide paper for those who don’t have access, some teachers have opted to provide only paper, or a mix use of paper and electronic enrichment. Because of this, students who may have access to technology at home, may still have a paper packet prepared for them.
Packets will be mailed home only to students who have opted for the mail option.
In order to remain organized, Hilo High School will be sending automated calls home before packet pick up day to inform you if a packet is ready to be picked up. If you do not receive the call, please do not come, as most likely, a packet was not prepared for your student.
Packet pickup will be tomorrow from 8 to 10:30 AM, and again from 2 to 4:30 PM on Wednesday, April 8.
If you do not pick up your packet during the designated times, please do not come to the Hilo High School office. We are not open to the public. We will attempt to get in contact with you.
Grab-and-go breakfast and lunch
We would like to inform you that Kalanianaole Schools is also offering grab-and-go meals for students living within their area! Kalanianaole joins Hilo Union, and Waiakea High School as designated grab-and-go meal providers. Meals are available to any child who is 18 years or younger. Breakfast is served from 7:30am to 8am, lunch is served at 11:30am to 12 noon.
If you have any questions regarding anything we spoke about in our morning bulletin, please contact the school through email at: firstname.lastname@example.org, or (808) 313-5500.
This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you for watching, and have a great day Vikings!
