School Year 2020 - 2021
Welcome back!  I hope everyone enjoyed their summer despite our Covid-19 situation.  This year, due to our blended instructional mode, our students in Grades K - 2 will be using SeeSaw, and Grades 3 - 6 will be using Google Classroom.  There is a "Parent Resource - Technology" section on our IPES website in the Parent dropdown menu to help you with the apps that we will be using this year.
For technical support, you may call the Ohana Help Desk at 643-3375 or visit
Here are just a few Google Apps that our grades 2-6 students may use throughout the year:
  • Google Meet to virtually connect students and teachers 
  • Docs, Sheets, and Slides allows students to create and edit in real-time
  • Google Drive to store and access docs on and offline without losing a draft
All new parents and students should review the HIDOE Technology Responsible Use Guidelines (TRUG) with their child; then sign the Technology Responsible User Form (TRUF) to constitute an understanding and agreement to abide by all rules and guidelines.  These forms can be found here in different languages.
ALL STUDENTS must also have a current SY 20-21 Student Publication Form on file.  This is especially important since there will be days when your child(ren) will be required to participate in online virtual meetings with their teacher.
If you have any questions, please call me at 499-6500.
