What is Luau Madness?

When is Luau Madness?
Luau Madness will be held on a Friday, April 12th from 6:00 – 7:30 pm.
Is it Mandatory for students to dress up in beach or March Madness basketball attire?
No. It is definitely not mandatory but students are encouraged to wear beach attire or something from their favorite college basketball team if they would like. Please wear clothing appropriate for school.
Is Luau Madness free?
No. The ticket must be purchased online .** Every ticket holder must have a signed waiver on file.
How much do wristbands cost?
Wristbands cost $15.00 and cover all the games, dancing and snacks at Luau Madness.
What’s this I hear about a waiver?
The vendors who rent us bounce houses and inflatable rides require every child who uses their products to have a signed waiver. Because our volunteers can’t check waivers the night of, we require every child to submit a signed waiver before attending. No exceptions.
When will my child get his wristband?
Wristbands will be distributed to the homeroom teachers on the morning of Luau Madness. The children will be encouraged to put them on immediately so as to avoid them being lost before the evening.
What activities are at Luau Madness?
There are fun fair type games with prizes, basketball and limbo contests, dancing with a DJ and snacks.
My child has peanut allergies. Can he/she eat the food at the event?
There is popcorn, cotton candy, ice cream and water. The popcorn is popped using non-peanut oil. There is a large variety of wonderful nut-free frozen treats from Delta Ice Cream Distributors, including Haagen-Das, Edy’s, Helados, and Nestle. We will also offer POPSICLE brand Firecracker popsicles!
Do you mind hanging on to my child’s EpiPen in case he has an allergic reaction at the event?
Our volunteers cannot be responsible for EpiPens or other medications while your child attends Luau Madness. The school nurse is not in attendance and PTO volunteers do not have access to her office. Having said that, there will be staff on site who are trained in First Aid and CPR. Please plan accordingly.
What are the times for Luau Madness?
Luau Madness runs from 6:00-7:30 pm
Is my child allowed to leave during the event?
Children are not allowed to leave during the event unless they are picked up from the front doors by their parent/guardian. At 7:30 pm, the kids will be allowed to leave and parents need to make sure they pick up their child promptly.
Can my child buy a ticket for a friend/sibling who would also like to attend?
No. Only students of Highcrest are allowed to attend Luau Madness.
My child has special needs, will he be able to attend with a chaperone?
Yes, absolutely! Please contact your child’s Learning Behavior Specialist or GLAd to request an aide. Your child’s chaperone will also need a wristband, but that is at no charge to you.
** Darn! I missed the ticket purchase deadline but my student really, really wants to attend! What do I do?!?
Tickets and waiver e-signing will briefly re-open Friday morning until Noon. Volunteers will scramble to hand out last-minute wristbands before school dismissal. If, due to last-minute ticket sales volume, your child does not receive a wristband during the school day, you should plan to accompany your child to the door of Luau Madness at 5:45 pm to ensure your child has both a wristband and a signed waiver on file. A limited number of tickets and waivers will be available at the door for last-minute purchase and signing, but remember that a child needs BOTH in order to attend.
