Latest Announcements

3/4/2021- Important Update on Quarter 4, Aupaka Gate, Reminders


PLEASE READ: Important Update on Quarter 4 - In recent weeks, we feel fortunate to see a significant drop in positive COVID cases throughout the island of Oahu. This drop has prompted our State leadership to begin planning for a transition to full in-person learning. NES Is currently awaiting further details and guidance before solidifying and sharing any plans and dates to return to 100% face-to-face learning. Please continue to monitor the NES website for further updates.


While planning for this transition to 100% face-to-face is still ongoing, we will be starting Quarter 4 (March 22nd) in our current Blended Schedule. If your child is currently distance learning only (DLO) and you would like to switch them to Blended Schedule for the start of Quarter 4, please fill out this survey. If you want to change your child from the Blended Schedule to DLO, please use this same survey to state your intentions as well. If you have multiple children, you will need to fill out this survey for each of them. Please finish this survey by next Wednesday (3/10).


We understand that new information may come within the following weeks, so we will understand if your decision changes. Please inform your teacher or administration directly if you do so.

Principal's Message

Aloha and Welcome to Admiral Chester W. Nimitz Elementary School's website. As members of the Nimitz Elementary School community, I invite you to actively participate in the education of our children. Our own lives tell us that the world has become more complicated, and our students must be well-equipped with knowledge and skills to succeed in it. They will need far more than memorized facts, automatic procedures, or the minimum skills in the 3 R's. Our students will become self-directed learners, community contributors, complex thinkers, quality producers, effective communicators, and effective and ethical users of technology.

Principal Marcy Kagami
