How Hawaii Schools Are Helping Kids Who Struggled During The Pandemic … Schools are implementing programs to foster “social and emotional well-being” in students as well as academic progress.

At Holomua Elementary, the school year already has begun. Roughly 800 students reported to class at the Ewa Gentry neighborhood campus on July 8, ahead of the statewide public school start date of Aug. 3, in order to accommodate a large student enrollment.

The early start provides an example of how educators are working to help students catch up academically and emotionally after more than a year of distance learning while maintaining safeguards against the spread of the coronavirus.

The school maintains COVID-19 restrictions such as enforcing mask wearing at all times, and keeps students in small groups during snack breaks outside.
