SENATE VICE PRESIDENT MICHELLE KIDANI ISSUES STATEMENT REGARDING HEALTH DEPARTMENT’S PUBLIC-SCHOOL GUIDANCE FOR ON-CAMPUS LEARNING


Senator Michelle Kidani

Senate Vice President Michelle Kidani (District 18 - Mililani Town, portion of Waipi‘o Gentry, Waikele, Village Park, Royal Kunia) issued the following statement regarding the Department of Health’s intent to revise the public-school guidance for on-campus learning:


“As the Department of Health (DOH) is working to revise its public-school guidance for on-campus learning, it is my hope that they are able to learn from the multi-track schools that have since returned to the classroom in early July. With COVID-19 numbers on a rise due to the delta variant, I urge DOH and the Department of Education (DOE) to quickly provide guidance to our schools so that the appropriate preparations can be made. Implementation of any safety and health recommendations will take time and resources. It is important to provide teachers and parents with a plan of action before a majority of our students return on August 3.”
