    Masks are required for all Punahou venues, indoor and outdoor at Punahou, while not actively eating or drinking. For off-campus events, please refer to the venue’s rules on masking. Masks and hand sanitizer will be available at all campus events. If you or your guest has been infected with COVID within 10 days of an event, please stay home. If you feel ill, even with mild symptoms or a negative test, please stay home.
  • I’m not feeling well, but I really want to attend. What should I do?

    Please stay home if you’re not feeling well, even if you are negative for COVID. For events on the Punahou campus, we will refund you if you email before the event start time. Refunds will be processed after Alumni Week. No-shows (without advance notice of cancellation) will not be refunded. Refunds for individual Class events are up to the discretion of the Reunion Committee.
  • Can I bring a guest if I didn’t register them?

    Unfortunately, walk-in guests are not allowed for School-sponsored events. For Class events, check directly with your Reunion Committee Activity Chairs.

Alumni Lu‘au Questions

List of 13 frequently asked questions.

  • Will you send my tickets in the mail?

    This year, we will be distributing wristbands on the day of Lu‘au. Please make sure to pick them up at your Class photo session (see times and locations below). If you miss your Class photo, you can pick it up at the Information Tent on Bishop Lawn after your picture taking time. The wristband reserves your seat under the tent; the tab on the wristband is your dinner ticket … so don’t pull it off!
