Ewa and Ewa Beach Communities,
We are happy to share that James Campbell High School will serve as a feeding site during this time that DOE school campuses are closed. Starting on March 25th Grab and Go breakfast will be from 7:30am to 8:00am and Grab and Go lunch will be from 11:30am to 12:00pm. Please enter through the Boys and Girls Club parking lot. Children under the age of 18 are eligible to participate and we can provide meals for those who we can see in person or are in the vehicle. We ask that everyone help protect the safety and well being of our cafeteria staff and administrators by not eating or loitering at the site. March 26th is the Kuhio Day holiday so meals will not be provided but service will resume on Friday, March 27th. Please share this information with others because we know there are families in need and we would like to do our part to help.
During this time of school closure, we encourage students to continue their daily reading and logging it on their Reading Campaign Logs.
We also encourage students to work using on-line sites such as IXL.com, Achieve 3000, and Smarty Ants, (grade dependent) that are available to our students, using their username and passwords that should be in their student planner page. Links such as those listed, and more, can be found on our Student Portal, bit.ly/KEScubs.
