All public schools and Hawaii State Department of Education offices in Maui County will be closed Wednesday, September 12, and afterschool activities remain canceled for Maui, Molokai and Lanai as the state prepares for impacts from Tropical Storm Olivia.
All other schools statewide will be open Wednesday.
“In order to give our families on Maui, Molokai and Lanai time to prepare, and with the early release time on Wednesday, we will be closing all Maui County schools and offices in anticipation of the storm’s arrival,” said Superintendent Dr. Christina Kishimoto. “We appreciate everyone’s patience during this time as we work with our partner agencies to monitor the storm, and we will continue to make decisions based on the safety and well-being of our students and staff.”
Families of students in charter schools are asked to contact their schools directly to learn about closures, or visit the Public Charter School Commission’s website.
