Public schools statewide to open today

  • BRUCE ASATO / 2016

    The Hawaii State Department of Education announced that public schools and offices statewide will resume normal operations today.

All public schools statewide will open today with the exception of four in Lahaina.

The Hawaii State Department of Education announced Sunday afternoon that public schools and offices statewide will resume normal operations today. After-school programming and activities including interscholastic athletics will also resume Monday.

Hurricane Lane forced the closure of public schools on the Big Island and Maui County on Wednesday. All schools statewide were closed Thursday and Friday.

The closure also canceled interscholastic sporting events over the weekend.

Brush fires that began in the Lahaina area on Friday will keep Lahainaluna High, Lahaina Intermediate, King Kamehameha III Elementary and Princess Nahienaena Elementary closed on Monday. Teachers and staff will report to the campuses, and the schools will reopen for students on Tuesday.
