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.
Sharing is caring, so please share this post! #ILoveAfterschool #asashawaii Hawaii Afterschool Alliance Hawaii State Department of Education
Aloha Parents and Guardians of Pahoa High and Intermediate Students.
We will be extending Computer Pick up to Monday, March 30 and Tuesday March 31 starting at 11:30 and ending at 1:30. Parents and Children must be present to get a computer.
Also, packets of work for those not able to access the internet will be available starting Monday at 11:30 and ending at 1:30. We will also be available on Tuesday, March 31.
Pick up location is in the H Building parking lot (middle school playcourt). Please stay in your cars for your safety and the safety of those helping to distribute work.
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.

Many teachers will also be posting enrichment activities via Google Classroom. Each teacher will be providing instructions for contact for questions regarding assignments.
Students should follow their schedules starting on Monday as an even schedule. Students will be able to contact their teachers at https://bit.ly/2y4zOPq if they have questions regarding the activities.
