Dear all Prom Patrons and Parents:
The Prom is a special event that we all look forward to each year. We have put together the
following dress code guidelines for students and guests so that you can prepare ahead of time
while shopping for appropriate attire.
Young men:
Dress pants, dress shirt and tie, and dress shoes.
A jacket is recommended, but not required.
Young women:
Must wear a dress, pant suit, or gown that is in good taste.
The outfit may not be made of see-through material.
Strapless dresses are allowed; however, no open styles, that show the entire back or
stomach areas, are permitted.
All dresses must cover the midriff area completely.
Front necklines shall not be lower than a line formed between the right and left armpit.
The dress length and all slits cannot exceed more than four inches above the knee.
Flats must be worn on the boat. Please do not show up for the excursion with
high heals.
Students will not be admitted wearing cargo pants, sneakers, jeans, t-shirts, torn clothing,
chains/spikes, canes, sexually implicit or explicit clothes, shorts, hats and head coverings,
bandanas, glow sticks or items referencing tobacco or alcohol products.
Only students and guests meeting the dress requirements will be admitted on the boat. All
patrons must stay appropriately dressed throughout the event.
If you have questions concerning your dress, it is your responsibility to seek prior approval
from administration. Any questions regarding dress should be resolved before that evening. If
you or your date attend prom dressed inappropriately, you will be asked to leave and a refund
will not be granted.
