Kealakehe High School Class of 2022 Commencement Ceremony

Saturday, May 21, 2022

Kealakehe High School

Congratulations to the Class of 2022! 

This page will give you the latest graduation information; we ask that all families read the official graduation memo sent out by the Hawaii Department of Education.  We also ask that families understand that the school has no control over whatever was handed down from Oahu.

General Information

  • We are graduating approximately 280 students.
  • The ceremony starts at 6:00PM; gates open for ticket holders at 4:00PM.
  • Due to our ongoing track construction, the ceremony will be held on the makai parking lot of our campus.  We'll send out an update should we be allowed to use the field BUT we can almost guarantee that construction will not be done in time.
  • There will still be ample parking on campus for the event.
  • Restroom facilities for the general public will be in the gym.


  • Each graduate will receive a total of four (4) tickets.
  • Tickets will be handed out at our first graduation practice on Wednesday, April 6.
  • Do not lose these tickets as replacements will NOT be given.
  • Seats will be divided by groups of four.  According to the DOE memo, "household members should be grouped together during the ceremony and physical distance maintained between families whenever possible".

Entrance Requirements and DOE Mandated COVID Protocol 

  • DOE guidelines state that, "All participants must be fully vaccinated or be required to take a COVID test at least 48 hours prior to the event. Those who have recovered from COVID within the past 90 days are not required to test due to natural immunity."
  • Please bring appropriate documentation to the event as we have to check it at the entrance. 
  • All attendees must adhere to these guidelines.
  • Since we are outdoors masks are optional.

Lei Ceremony

  • There will be a lei ceremony but only those with tickets will be allowed to attend.
  • The ceremony will take place in the parking lot and small grass area outside the gym.
