April 23, 2020
Dear Alumni,

The last several weeks have brought about unprecedented changes to all of our lives. It has now been just over one month since your alma mater successfully transitioned to an online distance learning program for all students. In addition, our faculty and staff have transitioned the iLab of the Sullivan Center into a fabrication lab for personal protection equipment and have already manufactured and distributed more than 7,000 face shields for healthcare workers and first responders in Hawaii and across the country. We are also proud of our many alumni around the world who are working on the frontlines to help others during this pandemic.

As you know, alumni events in April and May were canceled. This past week, in light of current restrictions and social distancing strategies, it was announced that  students will not be returning to campus for the remainder of the school year and that all on-campus operations will be suspended through August.

Alumni Event Changes
As such, in the continuing interest of the health and safety of our ‘Iolani community we will be canceling or postponing the following summer alumni events.

June 6 - 8, 2020 Class of 1970 -- 50th Reunion Postponed (new date to be determined)
June 15 - July 24, 2020 Alumni Basketball League Canceled
July 11, 2020 Alumni Association Summer Concert Canceled (possible online replacement at future date)
July 30, 2020 Reunion Weekend Kickoff Dinner Postponed (new date to be determined)
Aug. 1, 2020 A Touch of ‘Iolani Canceled

At this time, due to the evolving nature of our situation, we are unable to provide firm dates for the events which are being rescheduled.  We will continue to assess the circumstances and send you updates as they are available. Thank you for understanding.  

Although we are saddened that this crisis has forced the cancellation of events we all treasure these decisions were made with the best interest of our alumni, families and community in mind. 

Stay in Touch
There is a lot to be proud of in the ‘Iolani community so please stay connected with the school, your classmates and one another. For the latest updates,  follow ‘Iolani Alumni on Facebook and Instagram.
 
We will focus on better times ahead and the joyful reunions we will have once we are again able to come together as One Team!

Mahalo for your understanding. Please email Alumni Relations Manager Shari Tapper ‘90 at stapper@iolani.org if you have any further questions.

Take Care,
