Letter to Prom 2015 Participants

April 2015

Dear Prom Participants,

Congratulations on making the decision to attend prom. This will be a memorable occasion that you will cherish for the rest of your life. Many individuals have worked countless hours to ensure that your prom is the best ever. We appreciate their efforts and respect them for their dedication to their classmates.

In order for everyone to have a safe prom, the faculty and administration will undertake certain procedures to ensure the health, safety and welfare of everyone who attends prom. Please remember that since this is a school-sponsored event, all school rules apply. Don’t do something in the moment that you will regret later.

School administration and other adult chaperones will be present to help make sure everyone enjoys this event and that all students represent our school district appropriately. Chaperones will hold students accountable for their actions throughout the event and will expect all students to maintain a respectable standard of behavior. These expectations extend to the bus, the venue location, and the dance floor. Any style of dance that simulates inappropriate actions will not be tolerated.  

In the event a school administrator has information or believes that a student or his/her guest has been drinking or is under the influence of alcohol and/or illegal substances, a breathalyzer test may be administered. Failure to take the breathalyzer test will result in disciplinary consequences that may lead to your not attending or participating in graduation ceremonies and/or possible police action. Additionally, since this is a school sponsored event, a person 21 years or older who is accompanying a student will not be admitted to the event.

Your family, the administration, and all of your classmates want you to have a memorable time at prom and live to tell your friends about it. You are in control of your destiny, please make smart choices and enjoy your evening.
