11 school shootings so far in 2018


Aloha Parents, Guardians, and our Waimea Community,


Please click and read the link above.


With two school shootings just the week, I think it’s timely that Waimea High School students and staff are gearing up for our next active shooter drill on Tuesday, February 6th.  This drill will occur sometime between 8:30 - 9:30 am and will include Kauai Police Department officers firing blank gunshot rounds, running down the hallways and pounding on classroom doors.  Students and staff will have a second opportunity to put their training into practice, as they will have to decide if they will be able to safely run away from the danger or will need to lockdown and barricade their classrooms, preparing to fight if necessary.  As this is a drill, students and staff who decide to run will stop at the fence line or border of campus.


I also want to share the powerpoint presentation on Sheltering in Place that advisory representatives are using to teach their peers as a follow up to the accidental ballistic missile alert sent to Hawaii residents on January 13th.  We are asking students to go home and work with you on a family emergency plan that considers if members are together or scattered across the island.  Please feel free to use the information on the slides as talking points for this conversation.   Shelter in Place


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at 338-6800.


Mahalo… Mahina Anguay

Week of January 29, 2018

Hi everyone…. On paper, it’s a quiet week.  As a reminder, I’m out on vacation Monday - Thursday and out again on Oahu the following Wednesday - Friday for the National Career Academies Coalition conference with other staff members.  However,  I’m always available by phone/text/email and will get back to you as soon as I can.

I posted on our FB, school website and school app the following information re: our upcoming active shooter drill:

  • Tuesday February 6th; it will take place between 8:30 - 9:30 am and will include a KPD officer using blanks to simulate gunshots and his running on campus pounding on classroom doors.  Part of the feedback we received from students was they wanted the drill to be more realistic.  Your advisory reps are being asked to videotape their class’ response on that day -- if your class decides to stay, they will video how your students work together to barricade doors/lock windows/quiet everyone and silence phones.  If your class decides to run, they will video the class running to the nearest boundary line of campus.  The reps understand the importance of their video; it will not be used for any other purpose than for providing feedback to us as a school on how we can better prepare students and staff.  If you have any questions or concerns about the upcoming drills, please come and see one of the admin.  Thank you.

TUESDAY -- this is schoolwide TUTORING time from 1:30 - 2:45 pm.  Please be available to help tutor students or use the time to catch up on updating Infinite Campus or calling parents.

THURSDAY -- Short faculty meeting time in LRC at 1:30 to go over the active shooter drill the following Tuesday;; department meeting time to follow immediately after


Advisory notes – Please keep students in your classroom; they should not be walking around or going to other classes.


Tuesday:

  1. Juniors continue SBA math prep in the LRC or in their advisory classroom.  Please click on this link to see when you need to send them/your students report.  Matsuyama and Leota classes report to Matsuyama’s class

Thursday: Advisory rep meeting in LRC

After debriefing our December active shooter drill with students, KPD, and district staff, we have planned our next active shooter drill for Tuesday February 6th; it will take place between 8:30 - 9:30 am and will include a KPD officer using blanks to simulate gunshots and his running on campus pounding on classroom doors.  Part of the feedback we received from students was they wanted the drill to be more realistic.  Your advisory reps are being asked to videotape their class’ response on that day -- if your class decides to stay, they will video how your students work together to barricade doors/lock windows/quiet everyone and silence phones.  If your class decides to run, they will video the class running to the nearest boundary line of campus.  The reps understand the importance of their video; it will not be used for any other purpose than for providing feedback to us as a school on how we can better prepare students and staff.  If you have any questions or concerns about the upcoming drills, please come and see one of the admin.  Thank you.

TUESDAY -- this is Professional Learning Community time on the calendar.  Allie, Penny, Robyn, Darlene, and Gayle will report to the LRC where they will be available to help anyone with their SLO, SLIC, NGSS template, grading questions, weaving in AVID strategies, addressing the “ELA pukas”, or work with your data team partner.  If you do not need assistance, please use this time to tutor students in your classroom.

Week of 12/18/17(**Each of the underlined, italicized, red bold text below is a link )

Announcements:

  • Monday is an A day due to the 4 day week; bells have been adjusted.
    1. Please prepare for our active shooter drill during advisory period on December 21st:  
      1. On Tuesday, 12/19 your advisory rep should be presenting to his/her class about the drill.  Please work together to mark your laminated campus map and determine what your “safety circle” looks like; in other words, if there is imminent danger within that circled area, you will lock down.  Remind them to take the drill seriously and if they decide to run, then run and not jog or walk.  Also we will have representatives from other schools and agencies observing us and taking notes as they plan for their own drills.
  • I shared the power point last week to teachers and will share it with students prior
  • The actual drill will run for approximately 10 minutes on Thursday.  After it is concluded, please be sure to process the event with your students and ask the questions listed on the power point.  Your rep should be taking notes to share back to the larger group.  We will extend advisory by 15 minutes and cut recess and period 6 a little shorter.  Please see below:

11 school shootings so far in 2018


Aloha Parents, Guardians, and our Waimea Community,


Please click and read the link above.


With two school shootings just the week, I think it’s timely that Waimea High School students and staff are gearing up for our next active shooter drill on Tuesday, February 6th.  This drill will occur sometime between 8:30 - 9:30 am and will include Kauai Police Department officers firing blank gunshot rounds, running down the hallways and pounding on classroom doors.  Students and staff will have a second opportunity to put their training into practice, as they will have to decide if they will be able to safely run away from the danger or will need to lockdown and barricade their classrooms, preparing to fight if necessary.  As this is a drill, students and staff who decide to run will stop at the fence line or border of campus.


I also want to share the powerpoint presentation on Sheltering in Place that advisory representatives are using to teach their peers as a follow up to the accidental ballistic missile alert sent to Hawaii residents on January 13th.  We are asking students to go home and work with you on a family emergency plan that considers if members are together or scattered across the island.  Please feel free to use the information on the slides as talking points for this conversation.   Shelter in Place


If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at 338-6800.


Mahalo… Mahina Anguay

Busy, busy next 2 weeks; please ready very carefully to ensure you know what’s going on and what you’re responsible for following up on.  Each of the underlined, italicized, red bold text below is a link to a document -- please read very carefully and print a copy for yourself.

 

We are doing the school set up of teacher rosters for tripod this week.  From Friday, September 1 - Tuesday, September 6 you will need to verify your class roster for your period 3 classes; we’ve selected this group of students to complete the tripod survey this year.  If you have prep during period 3, you will survey your period 4 class.  Liko/Gayle T./Nalani will roster verify and survey their period 6 classes. Erdmann,Davalos, Swain, Casillas, Neuvell, Sagawa, Messer, LeCroix, and Moises -- we will give you specific instructions on how your rosters/survey will be done this year with your period 4 classes.  Instructions will be placed in your boxes this week; if you have any questions, please see Robyn for assistance.
