Aloha kākou a pau!
Manaʻolana he ʻo ia mau nō kākou i ke alo pali. Ma ke kālailai i ke kūlanalana olakino i ka maʻi ʻahulau me kona laha ma ke kaiaulu, e loli ana ka papahana hele kula, a e mālama ʻia he papahana keleaʻo piha no papa mālaaʻo a i ka papa 12. ʻOiai ʻaʻole ʻo Nāwahī he kula keleaʻo maʻamau, e ʻoni ana nō naʻe i ka mālama pēlā e hana pū ai me nā ʻohana a hoʻolako i ka papahana kāiaʻōlelo Hawaiʻi no nā haumāna ma ke keleaʻo. Ke wānana pū nei i ka mālama i ke keleaʻo no ka hapahā mua o ka makahiki kula, ʻaʻole no ka ʻehā wale nō pule. E makaʻala ana i nā loli ma ke au o ka manawa, a e hoʻomau ana nā kumu i ka hoʻokaʻaʻike me nā ʻohana. Loaʻa ka ʻikepili hou ma ke kiʻiaka e pili mai ana.
Ke waiho nei i kēia me ke aloha a me ka mahalo i ke kūpaʻa me ka noke lōkahi i ka hāpai i ka nuʻukia me ka lanakila mau!
I hope that everyone is safe and healthy despite the challenges we are facing. Given the present state of uncertainty in regards to our community’s health and welfare due to COVID19, Nāwahī will utilize distance learning from Kindergarten through grade 12. Although as a Hawaiian language medium school, Nāwahī is not designed for exclusive distance learning, we are nonetheless, pivioting to make the adjustments necessary to work with the ʻohana in delivering Hawaiian language medium education for students on a distance learning platform. Distance learning will continue through the first quarter of the school year, not just for the first four weeks. We will be alert to changes over time, and teachers will be in communication with families. Additional information is attached.
Mahalo for your continued support and perseverance in our collaborative roles to lift our mission and to ensure our continued success.
