Due to time and space constraints, no hemlines will be altered at prom. If your dress is too short, you will not be able to enter prom until you are within dress code, and our seamstresses will be unable to help you.
Social Distancing protocols will be followed during dress check. All alterations will either:
Dance barefoot at your own risk. If you choose to do so, you should make note of the location of the First Aid room.
Because we have a very active event with lots of dancing, lots of games, and lots of fun, our student ACTION Team advises that all first time prom attendees need to realize that you will want to be comfortable instead of having to adjust your clothing all evening (check out all their dress code suggestions). You may also want to consider selecting an outfit that is not too tight or constraining. We want you to be beautiful, as well as comfortable, while having the time of your life!
Please be aware that we have more than one dress check throughout the evening. Our Red Carpet team, as well as other chaperones, will be looking for dress code violations all night. You may be asked to follow a team member to the seamstress area for adjustments to your attire.
If a member of the Red Carpet Team asks you to step out of the check-in line, they will explain their concerns to you. It is possible that you will be pulled from the line and after closer consideration, no fix will actually be necessary. If a fix is required, and you want to stay at prom, you have three options:
We do not want to turn anyone away due to a dress code violation. However, we reserve the right to do so and we will. Please send questions to our Red Carpet Team.
Our Red Carpet Team has the ability to make exceptions if everything on your body is appropriately covered. One of our biggest issues is under the arm. We are looking for coverage first, then we can make an exception where the “see through” material begins or where the dress starts descending down the side of the body towards the back. The Dress Code states that the sides of the gown must extend under your arms when your arms are at your sides. Please understand that we are looking for coverage, therefore, we may be able to allow a halfway point under your arm, if everything is appropriately covered.
