Duct tape gowns or tuxedos will not be permitted, nor will T-shirts, ragged pants or shorts. Bare midriffs will not be allowed.


Displays of affection at school-sponsored dances are inappropriate, and such behavior may result in removal from the dance and/or suspension.

Lewd or offensive behavior, including obviously suggestive dancing, at school-sponsored dances is inappropriate and may result in removal from the dance at the discretion of school administrators or faculty sponsors.

Seniors must dance with both feet on the floor in a vertical position.

Once seniors arrive at the Prom and check in, if they leave the prom, for any reason , they will not be readmitted. There are no exceptions to this policy.
