Upon our return from Winter Break on Tuesday, January 5, 2021, your child will remain in the same Learning Model he or she was in December. Due to the level of virus in our community, the majority of our students will continue to be in the Distance Learning Model. This decision was made after reviewing health data and having consulted with our health partners. All nine Nanakuli-Waianae Complex Schools have decided that our community will be safer with Distance Learning. It is important to have a period of Distance Learning after the holidays to make sure that everyone is safe.

The Hawai‘i State Department of Education is currently seeking feedback from secondary students and families to learn more about first quarter experiences of the 2020-21 school year. This feedback is essential as we continue to assess system progress, identify areas where additional support is needed and coordinate resources.

Meal distribution will be at lunchtime only. Pick-ups will include one lunch for that day and one breakfast for the following day, per child. Please contact your school for meal serving times.
