Majority of schools to resume normal operations Monday

News

​Hawaii State Department of Education (HIDOE) public schools and offices statewide will resume normal operations tomorrow, Aug. 27, with the exception of four schools in Lahaina that will be closed for students.

After-school programming and activities including interscholastic athletics will also resume tomorrow.

HIDOE continues to work with county, state and federal emergency management agencies to assess campuses and offices for impacts from the storm.

The following Maui campuses will be closed for students on Monday, Aug. 27:

  • Lahainaluna High
  • Lahaina Intermediate
  • King Kamehameha III Elementary
  • Princess Nahienaena Elementary

Teachers and staff will report to the Maui campuses, but students will return on Tuesday, Aug. 28.  

HIDOE is providing the additional day for teachers and staff to prepare due to West Maui brush fires.

In response to the size and proximity of Hurricane Lane, HIDOE school and office closures were announced for Hawaii and Maui counties on Wednesday, Aug. 22, and statewide Thursday and Friday, Aug. 23 and 24.  

Public charter schools across the state will also reopen Monday. Staff will be assessing the damage caused to their campuses by the storm.

Kamehameha Schools campuses, preschools, community education programs, and offices will open Monday, with the exception of KS Hilo preschool, which remains closed due to flooding. Staff and families will receive a separate update on the school’s status via school messenger.

All University of Hawaii campuses and offices will resume normal operations on Monday, when all students and employees should return to campus.
