Principal's Message


Aloha e Parents and Families,

Welcome to 2021! We hope this letter finds you and your family in good health as we continue to navigate this pandemic together. Our Nānākuli-Wai‘anae complex administrators met to discuss the most updated COVID-19 data, including the 14-day positivity rates of the State, City & County of Honolulu, and our community in order to determine when it is safer for our students to return to campus.

Due to the latest three-digit daily COVID-19 infection rates on our island, and the elevated positivity rates in the Nānākuli-Wai‘anae area, the decision has been made to delay the hybrid tiered entry (the AB or ABCD schedules) of our students to campus until the 4th quarter.

Nānākuli Elementary School will begin the hybrid tiered entry on March 22, 2021. Prior to spring break, your child’s teacher will contact you to go over important information as well as schedule an opportunity for you to visit their classroom and go over safety procedures.

Please find our hybrid tiered entry, staggered release schedule, and meal service information on the back of this letter.

We will continue to monitor the pandemic and maintain open lines of communication as our foremost responsibility remains to provide a safe learning environment for all individuals. The HIDOE’s Daily Wellness Check is extremely important. Check your child every morning and keep them home if necessary. You can access the Daily Wellness Check at the following URLs,

Please continue to check our school’s website, along with the Hawaii State Department of Education and Hawaii Department of Health’s websites for the latest updates on the COVID-19 pandemic. We truly appreciate your continued support and flexibility with the current situation and look forward to the day we can physically welcome everyone back on campus. Until then, please continue to keep your families safe by practicing social distancing, wearing face coverings, and washing your hands frequently.

Be well & be safe,
Disa Hauge
Interim Nānākuli-Wai‘anae Complex Area Superintendent
