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?

On this page, we want to share our “why”: The behind-the-scenes thinking, our decision-making, how we’ve delivered home learning, how we make sure our students are still learning and thriving in these challenging times. 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. And, with the return to campus on May 20, 2020, we share with you our back to school plans (see "Shared Resources" below), for a glimpse of what steps we took to keep the community safe on campus. Thank you for coming on our journey with us.
