HIDOE Schools and Offices


As of 2:30pm today, Superintendent Kishimoto announced that schools will continue with distance learning for the rest of this school year. We will email you in the future regarding the end of the school year procedures (collecting supplies, returning devices, etc).

We are focused on minimizing disruption for students and supporting their emotional well-being. For tips and tools to navigate and support your child's continuous learning, please visit bit.ly/HIDOEVirtualLearningParentResource.

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We will be hosting a Question and Answer session for parents on Monday, 4/20/2020 at 4:00pm via webex. This session is for any questions you may have regarding distance learning, or anything pertaining to our current schooling situation. We will answer your questions as best as we can; however, please understand that we may not have all the answers to your questions since new information continues to come out on a daily basis. To sign up, please email our VP, Mr. Hososa stating that you are interested in joining this session, and a webex login email will be sent to you on Monday.

This situation is rapidly changing so please visit the DOE website for the latest information. 


Information will be posted to this site as we receive updates from the Department of Education (DOE), Department of Health (DOH), and/or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate through this situation.

Parent Survey: Information from this survey will help us with decisions regarding School Uniforms, Attendance Policy, and Resource classes for next year. This is your opportunity to provide input and make a difference at Ali‘iolani.
