Principal Goo's Welcome Message for Our Families

Aloha Hahaione Ohana,

Thank you for your support in the 2020-21 school year. Together, we gave our keiki a quality experience in education. We should all be proud of our collective efforts.

This summer we have rebounded in many ways. We have improved our facilities by re-roofing 3 buildings. Our hard working custodians have deep cleaned our entire school, floor to ceiling. We have restocked our PPE and utilized CDC and DOH guidance to further and proactively improve our safety protocols. We are prepared for an extremely safe and rich school experience.

Our first day of school is on Wednesday, August 4th. We will have one start time at 8am and one end time at 2:15pm everyday and 12:30pm on Wednesdays. We ask all families members to wear masks, maintain a safe 6 feet in social distance and only enter campus for essential functions. Curbside drop off is recommended.

Free breakfast and lunch will be served to all students who want to take advantage of this service. Parents are asked to please provide supervision prior to 8am if their child will be eating school breakfast. Please grab and go and eat in your parked car or a socially distanced spot on campus away from pedestrian traffic. We ask that all students be in their classroom seat ready to learn by 8am.

To support first-day butterflies and embrace the excitement of our school we will be having a meet and greet afternoon/evening. Please join us anytime between 3:30pm and 5:30pm on this Friday, July 30th. Our teachers will be waiting to welcome you to the 2021-22 school year. This is a chance to meeting your teacher for the school year, get acquainted with the classroom environment and drop off your school supplies. Students’ classroom assignments will be posted in the front of the school at 10am the same day (7/30). Please do not take pictures and text other families since the information may be personally identifiable information. The posting will be removed at the end of the evening. Future inquiries can be made at our front office during regular business hours.

At Hahaione, we believe in the power of in-person instruction and we also know that there is no comparable substitute. That being said, if your child has extenuating circumstances and may benefit from distance learning, please reach out to me at Shannon.goo@k12.hi.us. Although Hahaione will not provide anything directly, there may be state programs that could be offered externally.

We look forward to seeing you and beginning this year’s educational journey of wonder and discovery.


Cappy Goo, Principal
