ACTION Team Advice

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 handsome, as well as comfortable, while having the time of your life!

Dress Checks All Night

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.

In the Unlikely Event...

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:

  1. Change into something that complies with our dress code.
  2. Fix your own ensemble to meet the dress code.
  3. Allow our volunteers to assist you with an appropriate quick fix.

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.
