Principal's Message- 9/28/20

Dear Olomana ‘Ohana,
 
First, let me thank you for your support and patience as we adjusted to a Full Distance Learning model at the start of the school year. We are very proud of our students for the many ways they stepped up to learn in this new environment. We were happy to greet our students at our orientation in August and since then our Razorbacks have been diligent about logging in and participating in their virtual learning classes. Students have done a good job of staying in touch with their teachers and counselors to problem solve technical and personal issues and work through challenges to stay on track with assignments.
 
Here are some tips for students learning in an online environment:
-       Set up a workspace.
-       Have paper and writing tools handy during class.
-       Stick to a routine that includes going to bed early on school nights.
-       Interact with your teacher.
-       Ask for help when needed.
-       Be ready to learn; turn off social media and games that compete for your attention while you are in class.
 
We will continue distance learning in the second quarter of this school year. Olomana School is launching a learning hub where students can check in virtually or attend in person to get help. Students will also be able to come into school to participate in their online classes or complete assignments. Instructors will be present and safe distancing practiced. Watch for announcements about how students can schedule times to participate.
 
Please continue to visit our webpage and follow our social media platforms for up-to-date and accurate information. Our priority is to keep everyone safe while not making life more difficult for our school community. Thank you for your continued support and positivity as we continue to adapt to new ways of teaching and learning in these challenging times.
 
Serving you,
 
Lisa DeLong, EdD
Principal
