Dance Dress Code

No plunging necklines, no backless, and no extremely short dresses (hands over head check). Spaghetti strap and strapless dresses are allowed for semi-formal and formal dances. No bare midriffs or undergarments showing. No sagging pants. Shirts must remain on throughout the dance (no vests only). Students will be checked at the door. Anyone in violation will not be admitted. Students are to maintain the dress code throughout the dance (no changing clothes). Any student in the dance in violation of dress code will be removed from dance. Dances held in the gym require soft bottom or no shoes to avoid damaging the floor. 

Students who violate the above dance and dress code rules will lose dance attendance privileges. If large groups engage in such activities, it may be necessary to turn on the lights, stop the music, or end the dance. Help us maintain a safe and enjoyable atmosphere for all!

Warning, student ID card confiscated, incident documented, parent phone call.
