ULS is currently using our full distance learning model for grades K-12 for the 2020-2021 school year.

September 28, 2020
ULS will continue with distance learning through Friday, November 6, 2020.  We will monitor the situation and make adjustments to our Return to Campus Plan to be able to bring back our students, faculty and staff when we are ready. We will provide an update at the end of October.

August 28, 2020
We have been monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic situation by keeping up to date with news and announcements from the governor and state agencies. We have decided to make a determination concerning our distance learning program. ULS will continue with distance learning through Friday, October 2, 2020. We feel that this is the best option for everyone in our ULS ‘ohana at this time. ULS fall break is from October 5 to October 9. Students will return to learning on Monday, October 12, 2020. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as October 2, 2020 approaches.

August 10, 2020
At a news briefing Friday, August 7, 2020, Gov. David Ige announced public schools on O‘ahu would be doing distance learning for the first four weeks of the new school year. As stated in our ULS Return to Campus Plan, in the event that a school closure occurs due to state mandates in reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic, ULS is prepared to move all grades to a distance learning model. Therefore, a modification has been made to the ULS Return to Campus Plan for all ULS students (K-12) in order to align with this change. ULS will be implementing a full distance learning model for the first four weeks (August 17 – September 11) of this school year. ULS will continue to closely monitor the situation and information shared by Gov. Ige and state agencies to make a determination as to whether or not students can safely return to in-person blended learning models. Should in-person classes be allowed to resume, ULS will commence the A/B blended (in-person and online) learning model for grades 6-12 and face-to-face model for K-5. An announcement will be made the week of September 7, 2020.
