Superintendent's Message

Aloha Mai Kakou,
There are many issues and challenges that the State of Hawaii is facing due to the current COVID 19 health situation.  The Hawaii Department of Education has been actively working in partnership with the Governor and the Department of Health/Center for Disease Control to issue updates on information and guidelines for our schools to follow in planning for the levels of emergency that we may face in the event of increasing cases in Hawaii.  
The Nanakuli-Waianae Complex Area Leadership and School Principals are in weekly conversations to ensure consistency in our decision making and clarity on directions for operations as we move forward in the next few months.  There are school plans being developed to address the issues of student and employee extended absences, continued educational support for students, communication plans to parents, students, and employees via school websites and social media with links to the Hawaii DOE sites for resource information.  For up-to-date information regarding COVID-19, visit the Nanakuli-Waianae Complex Area (nwcomplex.org) or your school and Hawaii DOE websites (Hawaiipublicschools.org). 
Please reach out to your school principals and vice principals should you have any questions about the current situation.  We will need to work together as a Nanakuli-Waianae Community in addressing this concern for our schools and all those who support the education of our haumana.  
Mahalo Piha,
Ann A. Mahi, Nanakuli-Waianae Complex Area Superintendent
Sione Thompson, Nanakuli-Waianae Deputy Complex Area Superintendent

NEW!!! Added Schools serving Breakfast and Lunch for our KEIKI starting April 27th

Starting on April 27th Leihoku Elementary and Waianae Elementary schools will become Hawaii Department of Education Breakfast and Lunch Program distribution sites following the same pick up times as the other sites. We want to extend a warm Mahalo Nui Loa to the Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center for assisting all this time in providing access to these meals for our haumana.


The purpose of the Hoʻāla Assistance Program is to provide one-time emergency financial assistance (up to $1000 per household) to Hawaiʻi residents facing hardship due to the COVID-19 pandemic. HRF is made possible through a partnership between the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement, Hawaiʻi Community Foundation, and Pierre & Pam Omidyar. The program aims to provide stability to families during this emergency situation. Click HOʻĀLA ASSISTANCE PROGRAM FUNDED BY THE HAWAII RESILIENCE FUND in RED above for more information.
