4/17/18 Letter to Families Impacted by Weather Event

Aloha Families,

Please allow us to send out best wishes to all of our families who may have been impacted by the recent weather and subsequent flooding events.

We want all of our families to know that AHES endeavors not to just be a place of learning and teaching, but also a place of caring and nurturing. While we are aware of several families either displaced or negatively impacted by the recent severe weather and flooding in our community, we also understand that we may not fully know the extent of impact this past weekend may have had or be having on our families. We want to invite all of you to reach out to us here at Aina Haina Elementary if you are concerned about your own child or others who may have been affected. Feel free to reach out to your child’s teacher, any counselor, an administrator or any other staff member and we will work with you to connect your child or your family to appropriate resources both here at school and outside.

While in school, our teachers, counseling staff and other adults on campus will be reaching out and talking story with students regarding their thoughts or feelings about the recent events. We know that even our students, not directly impacted, feel great empathy for their friends and peers who have been affected in some way. We want to assure you that we will be working with our students to positively channel their thoughts and emotions as appropriate.

Again, our best wishes to all of our families and community members. We are a great school because of you and we are here to work with you and your child through these challenging circumstances.

Take care,

Tony Gayer
Assistant Principal

Safety: Morning Drop Offs and Afternoon Pick Ups

We want to thank everyone for their patience and courtesy each morning and afternoon during the busy drop off and pick up times for school. We’d also like to take this opportunity to reiterate some key safety reminders for our campus. The staff and students of AHES do thank everyone in advance for their attention to our campus safety at all times while on campus, but particularly during the very busy drop off and pick-up times.

Please be aware and reminded that there is no campus supervision before 8:00 unless students are in the YMCA Morning Care Program (6:30-8:00) or are having breakfast in the cafeteria (7:30-8:00)
During morning drop off times, please……
  • Drive with patience, courtesy and caution on and around the campus.
  • Park in the mauka gravel lot or in the Makai parking lot if you need to exit your vehicle.
  • All parking within the gate of the cafeteria lot is AHES Staff Parking.
  • Pull completely forward in the auto drop off lines.
  • Have children remain in their seatbelts or booster seats until coming to a complete stop.
  • Have children exit from the passenger side when using either of the auto drop off lines.

Please be aware and reminded that there is no campus supervision after 2:15 unless students are in the YMCA A+ Program (1:30/2:25-5:30), enrolled with a Parks and Recreation Program in the Park Pavilion or is enrolled in an after school program on campus.
During afternoon pick up times, please…..
  • Drive with patience, courtesy and caution on and around the campus parking areas.
  • Do not block the entrance/exit gate area of the cafeteria staff parking lot.
  • Park in the mauka gravel lot or Makai marked parking stalls if you need to exit your vehicle.
  • Keep the cafeteria staff parking lot clear for cars to move through for their pick-ups.
  • Remind your child(ren) as to where they should wait for pick up and to wait safely and kindly.
  • Be sure all children are buckled up and/or secured in their appropriate booster or car seats.

Regardless of the time of day or on/off campus, please also take the time to…
  • Always be aware of your surroundings
  • Never leave a child unattended in your vehicle for any amount of time
  • Always lock your vehicle
  • Keep all valuables with you and/or out of view from your windows

With Regards,
Anthony Gayer, Assistant Principal
