The schools that were activated as shelters on Wednesday closed sheltering services at 6:00 a.m. today.

All after-school activities remain cancelled through tomorrow.

“We assessed our school campuses this morning and no damages were reported,” said Superintendent Kathryn Matayoshi. “We will remain vigilant as Hurricane Lester makes its way towards the islands and continue to keep everyone informed of the affects it may have on our schools.”

All public charter schools on Hawaii Island will also open tomorrow.

On Maui, Hana High and Elementary School was closed today following heavy rains that created dangerous conditions. Hana School will also reopen tomorrow.
