What School will your child be attending?

Students are required to attend the school that serves the geographic district where they live. Konawaena Elementary School District is from Ha'awina Street at the North end to just past Kalamalani Street to the South.  It also includes all of Ke'ei and Napo'opo'o Road and beach and the Manini Beach area.  This interactive tool is a guideline to help you locate the appropriate school according to your address.  If you live near the boundries of the school district please call or stop by and the office can confirm the correct school.   ​
To enter Kindergarten, children must be 5 by July 31. We are now registering children for Kindergarten who are born between Aug. 1, 2017 and July 31, 2018.  (For the 23-24 School Year)

Transfer from another Hawai'i School

Advise your current school as much in advance as possible that you will be transferring your child. They will prepare paperwork and forward it to our school after you have registered with us.
While you will not need all the documents listed above but you will need proof of current address and any custodial legal documents if appropriate.

Transfer from out of State.
Students new to the Hawai'i Department of Education will need all the documents listed above.
Konawaena Elementary School District
Children will attend school in the district in which they reside. Our school district is roughly from Ha'awina Street in Keauhou on the North to Kalamalani Place in Captain Cook to the South. Please call the school for specifics.  Use the above school locator as a guideline.
Geographic Exceptions may be applied for and are awarded dependent on availability.

Please allow ample time when registering your student. Students should not be registered on the day you expect them to start school. This allows paperwork to be processed and the Teacher time to prepare for their new student so that students feel welcome and expected on the first day.
