Aloha SLES Ohana,


Student supplies and prepaid yearbooks (only) will be distributed during the week of May 26-28, 2020 in our SLES parking lot.  To ensure the safety of everyone, wear a mask and follow social distancing protocols.  Signs will be distributed at the entrance to the parking lot to be displayed on your dashboard to expedite matters.   You may also make a sign of your own.   Please include the names of all students within the household, the grade and room number.  Do not get out of your vehicles.  Staff members will hand the student supplies to you or place them in your trunk.   Students may return school property (textbooks, library books, Music Enrichment shirts and musical instruments etc) at the drop off area.

Aloha SLES Ohana,

Be sure to check out the latest parent bulletin on the SLES Website or click the link below.  As a reminder, all public schools will remain closed until May 28th.  Due to the extended school closure, your child will need the Distance Learning packet pacing guide for the month of May. Pacing guides can be found on our website in your child's Grade Level Enrichment page of the COVID-19 Updates Section. As our school year comes to an end, please inform your child’s teacher if you are planning to transfer to another school.

Stay safe and healthy,
