2020 7TH AND 9TH GRADE SUMMER BRIDGE PROGRAM
June 29, 2020 - July 17, 2020 (Mondays to Fridays)
Breakfast & Lunch Provided
Our intent is to provide students with a creative approach to education, while providing them with an introduction to high school life. Students will participate in 3 weeks of blended instruction both on and off campus. 9th grade students will earn 1/2 an elective credit for participating and will gain a sense of place as new students here at Pahoa High and Intermediate School.
ABOUT THE SUMMER BRIDGE PROGRAM
The purpose of our Summer Bridge Program is to help incoming 7th graders and freshman become familiar with the PHIS Campus, expectations, culture and staff.
SAFETY OF STUDENTS AND STAFF
To ensure that all students and staff are safe and healthy, our Summer Bridge Program will be held as a hybrid model including both on and off-campus learning opportunities. All CDC guidelines must be followed while on campus, including groups of no more than 10 in a classroom, everyone is required to wear masks, and sanitation guidelines will be followed daily.
If a student forgets his/her mask, we will provide a disposable one. Any student who refuses to wear a mask or follow required guidelines will not be allowed to participate in the Summer Bridge Program.
Additionally, every student will be screened upon arrival to campus. Anyone demonstrating symptoms of illness will need to be picked up for the safety of all.

The After-School All-Stars Hawaii team has been hard at work putting together resources to help our ʻohana with activities they can do at home during this challenging time. Weʻll be posting during the after-school hours starting Thursday, April 2 and hope you'll join in on the fun.
One of the new things we're trying is a new video series "Stay at Home Blues (and Oranges)" that will feature activities students and families can do with minimal resources at home.
Our first video is scheduled to go live on Friday, April 3 so make sure you connect with us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

Please see our website for additional information at pahoahis.org.
Q: Can I send someone to pick up computers for my children?
A: No. We need the students available so that we can determine that the student attends Pahoa High and Intermediate School.
Q: Can I send my aunt/uncle/grandmother/babysitter to pick up a computer with my student?
A: No. Parents/Guardians must sign to accept the responsibility for replacing the computer should the computer be lost or damaged.
Q: How do I contact my student’s teachers?
A: There are numerous links provided through pahoahis.org for parents to find emails, phone numbers, etc. Teachers will be working to reach out to their students to help them access the work being provided.
Q: Does this work “count”? In other words, will the work be graded.
A: These activities are enrichment activities, helping students to reinforce what they already know and help them not to forget what they learned. Completing these activities will help your student to enter the classroom ready to learn when we return.
On Friday, March 27, 8 AM to 12 PM computers will be available for students who may need them for the enrichment activities at H Building parking lot. Parents will need to sign the acceptable use policy to receive a computer and will be responsible if the computer is lost or damaged.
