Welcome to the
Kihei Charter School
High School Division
FROM THE LEADERSHIP TEAM
Aloha KCS 'Ohana,
As you know, we are always looking into ways of improving the learning environment at our school. After much thought and consideration, we have decided to adjust our cell phone policy.
While cell phones and other screen devices are deeply embedded within our modern culture, they also have the ability to negatively impact instruction and socialization within a school setting if not used properly.
Effective immediately, students in grades Kindergarten through 8 may not use cell phones on campus at any time. They are, however, allowed to keep the phones within their backpacks for emergency purposes.
Students in grades 9-12 may not use their phones at school either unless it's directly approved by a teacher as an educational tool.
Cell phones will be confiscated from any student who attempts to break this rule. The phone will then be returned at the end of the school day. Further disciplinary action will ensue for repeat offenders.
We understand that parents often need to contact their children throughout the school day. In order to do so, we ask that you contact our front desk at 875-0700 to relay the message.
We anticipate that there will be some initial hurdles when it comes to enforcing a drastic policy change such as this. Therefore, it is essential that we are all in alignment and supportive of this new regulation.
Mahalo for your continued support,
The Leadership Team
Kihei Charter School is pleased to introduce a new communications tool called Anonymous Alerts®.
What is the Anonymous Alerts app?
The Anonymous Alerts anti-bullying and safety app reporting system helps combat bullying and other negative activity in schools by empowering students to speak up. Social and peer pressure are some of the hardest obstacles for students to overcome.
The system allows for 1-way or 2-way anonymous encrypted communications between submitters (students, parents or community members) and district administration and/or school staff. Users of the system have the option to remain anonymous or reveal their identity when submitting a report.
How does it work?
To use this revolutionary new app, students, parents or other school personnel can simply visit the
Kihei Charter School website and click on the “Anonymous Alerts” button or text link to submit a report expressing their concern. Anonymous Alerts® mobile applications can be downloaded directly from the Apple, Google Play or the Chrome stores.
Kihei Charter School supplies students an activation code, making the app remarkably easy to use and students select which school the message should go to. In addition, informational posters explaining how to use the app will be displayed throughout schools and offices in the district.
