Checking In at Prom

Welcome to Back in Time!

Checking In

Lining Up

The check-in line starts on the 2nd floor of the Embassy Suites hotel. Some students arrive as early as 3:00 pm to start lining up. Beginning at 4:00 pm, prom staff will be there to help you find the end of the line when you arrive. Sorry, due to space constraints, only ticketed students will be allowed on the 2nd floor from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm.

Professional Photos

From 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm, you may choose to step out of line and get your professional photo taken before you check-in for prom. You will be able to get right back in line after your photo is taken.

Prom Check-In Begins at 5:00 pm
Dress Check

Dress Check will be conducted on the 2nd floor of the hotel. When you pass dress check, you'll get a hand stamp that you must show before checking into prom. Read the Gowns Dress Code and the Suits and Tuxes Dress Code.

Bag Check

Our Sentinel Team will be checking out the stuff in your bag before you get into prom, so make sure you read, "What to Leave at Home" below.

With the exception of Epipens and rescue inhalers, all medications (over-the-counter and prescription) will be placed in a bag with your name on it and will be available to you in the First Aid room. You may pick up your medications at the end of the evening.

If there are medications you need immediate access to throughout the night, please send a note to the prom team so we can accommodate you.
