Student safety and well-being

Caring for the whole child

There is nothing more important to us than our keiki.

Our keiki must be healthy and safe to learn and succeed in school and life. By taking a whole-child approach, we can better support and equip each student with the skills they need toward reaching their fullest potential.

We all share in this kuleana. Support from ‘ohana and our lāhui help to reinforce all of these efforts so that our keiki and lāhui can thrive.
