A Message from Head of School, Dr. Ron Roukema

Welcome to our home learning webpage. At HKIS, our home learning journey started on February 3, 2020, and continued much longer than anyone had imagined. This presented several challenges to our educators, students, and families: How do we keep learning interesting? Along with academics, how do we take care of the whole child? Although we did return to school for a brief three weeks at the end of May, we will begin the 2020-21 academic year in a virtual home learning environment once again. 

On this page, we want to share our “why” from our practices last Spring: The behind-the-scenes thinking, our decision-making, how we've made sure our students are still learning and thriving in these challenging times, and how we came back to campus safely in May. We invite you to review our resources, watch videos, and hear from our experts on how we keep learning fresh and adjusted course when needed. As we begin the 2020-21 year, our quest to innovate in a virtual environment continues, and we will share our best practices as we go. Thank you for coming on our journey with us.
