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.

Aloha Nanakuli/Waianae families of our Public and Charter Schools,
We hope this message finds you and your families well during this Covid-19 emergency in Hawaii. We realize that the necessary closure of our schools will cause a disruption to our services so to help alleviate the current situation, our school cafeterias at Waianae High, Waianae Intermediate, Maili Elementary, Nanakuli High and Intermediate and Nanaikapono Elementary will provide prepared breakfasts and lunches for our children starting from Wednesday March 25th.
During the school closure period, our cafeterias will be providing breakfast and lunch for any student on the coast, 18 years and under, using a “drive-thru” pick up system. Breakfast will be served from 7:30-8:00 am. Lunch will be served from 11:30-12:00 pm. One meal per child will be distributed and the child/children must be present in the car to be served a meal based on federal guidelines.
AS A REMINDER: THERE WILL BE NO MEAL SERVICE ON THURSDAY MARCH 26. PRINCE KUHIO DAY.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your school during the regular office hours.
We will continue to put the well being of our children and families as a priority in all decisions made during this time.
Please stay safe and well as we go through these times together.
With Sincerest Regards,
Ann Mahi, Complex Area Superintendent
Sione Thompson, Deputy Complex Area Superintendent
