Students who do not follow this rule will be removed from the dance. Money will not be refunded. Please contact Mrs. Chesney or Mr. Rogers with questions.
Keep up to date with your student's grades and absences by utilizing our Parent Portal. If you do not have your student's log in information, please contact Student Services.
Please note that all shorts, skirts, and dresses must reach the fingertips. Students who are wearing tops that are low cut, with straps that are not three fingers in width, or that are showing undergarments will be required to change. If the student does not have appropriate clothing to change in to, he or she may be required to go home. Parents will be contacted.
