Principal's Message

**UPDATE AS OF MARCH 1, 2021**

Aloha NES Families

As we prepare for our transition to hybrid learning, we wanted to share our updated school selected model and attendance procedures.


SCHOOL SELECTED MODEL

We looked at data from our state surveys, school, and parent feedback and collaborated thoughtfully to determine a model that would enable us to continue to provide a high-quality education for all students. We will also be maintaining safety practices as aligned with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Hawai‘i Department of Health (DOH) COVID-19 guidelines, utilizing all available facility and personnel resources.

ATTENDANCE PROCEDURES

On-campus instruction starts promptly at 7:45am, with attendance for both in-person and virtual students taken daily by 11:00am. Teachers will communicate their attendance expectations to parents and students.


HEALTH AND SAFETY

To ensure safety for all employees, children, and parents, please continue to:
   1.  Wear protective face gear
   2.  Practice physical distancing
   3.  Practice hand hygiene
Health and Safety are our utmost priority. We understand that while some families are excited about returning to face to face instruction and returning to work, we also have families who are not, due to safety and health concerns. We are here to honor all of our families.

Thank you for your continued flexibility and understanding as we balance the health and safety of our community with the need to provide a high-quality education for all students. For more information regarding our school’s model and on-campus procedures, please check out our Parent Handbook at bit.ly/nesparenthandbook.

Sincerely,
 
Lisa Higa
