Rules of Conduct
- Students and their guests must be in school for the entire day Friday, May 17, 2013 in order to attend the prom.
- Students with more than 20 unexcused period absences for the entire year are not eligible to attend prom. (1st and 2nd semesters will be combined.) This attendance policy applies to all SCHS students attending prom, including 10th grade guests.
- Students with disciplinary referrals may not be eligible to attend prom. Administrator discretion will be used on a case-by-case basis. This disciplinary policy applies to all SCHS students attending prom, including 10th grade guests.
Dress Code for Prom
Parents are expected to monitor and approve clothing according to the following guidelines. Failure to adhere to the guidelines will result in denied entry to the prom and forfeiture of prom ticket.
Dress Code for Ladies
- Strapless or spaghetti strap dresses are acceptable provided the dress does not over-expose the student. Note: If a strapless dress is chosen, the student must make sure it fits snugly and will not slip down while dancing. Pulling a dress up and “adjusting it” takes away from the sophisticated look expected at prom.
- Knee length, tea length and long dresses are permitted. Short skirts or dresses must be no shorter than mid thigh.
- Dresses must have necklines that ensure appropriate coverage of the bust area.
- Dresses must have backlines that sufficiently cover appropriate areas.
- Dresses that show bare stomachs and/or sides of the torso are not permitted.
- Dresses with low-cut or plunging necklines that expose too much are not allowed. A dress that may be acceptable on one person may expose too much on another one, depending on body shape and size.
- Dresses with side, front, or back slits that extend above mid thigh are not permitted.
All dresses (to be worn by guests or SCHS students) must be approved by SCHS administration prior to the prom. Dates and times will be announced for dresses to be approved. A clear photograph of the student wearing the dress will be accepted. The student may also bring the dress to school and try it on for approval. Once a dress is approved, the student may not change to another dress without getting it approved as well. Wearing a dress that was not approved by administration, or inappropriately altering a dress post-approval, will result in the student being denied
entrance to the prom and forfeiting the prom tickets already purchased. Any questions concerning the appropriateness of a dress should be directed to the designated administrators.
Dress Code for Gentlemen
- All gentlemen should wear appropriate formalwear for the occasion (including footwear and accessories). A suit and tie or
- tuxedo is appropriate. No hats (casual or formal) and no canes will be allowed inside the Metro for security purposes.
- Remember: Prom is meant to be a tasteful and elegant event.
