Any questions regarding dress should be resolved before that evening. Any student or guest that fails to meet any of the following conditions will be denied entry to the event:

Dress Code for Young Men:

Dress pants, dress shirt, and dress shoes. A tie and jacket is strongly recommended. All pants must be securely worn around the waist. No “polo” style shirts will be allowed. Athletics shoes/sneakers (i.e. Nikes, Adidas, etc.), skate shoes (i.e. Vans, Airwalks, etc.) or workboots will not be permitted. The principal’s/designee’s decision is FINAL.

Dress Code for Young Women:

Must wear a dress, pantsuit, or gown that is in good taste. The outfit may not be made of see-through material. Strapless dresses are allowed; however, they must be in good taste. Open styles are allowed, but need to cover the lower back area. All dresses must cover the midriff area completely. The sides of the midriff area must also be covered. Front necklines shall not be lower than a line formed between the right and left armpit. This guideline governs cleavage and the principal’s/designee’s decision is FINAL. The dress length and all slits cannot exceed more than four inches above the knee.

Dress Code Violations:

Students dressed inappropriately will be turned away at the door. Students will not be admitted wearing cargo pants, sneakers, jeans/denim, khakis, Dickies (or other casual pants), t-shirts, torn clothing, chains/spikes, sexually implicit or explicit clothes, shorts, hats and head coverings, bandanas, or items referencing tobacco or alcohol products. Adjustments made at the door or during the dance (including pinning, the addition of a jacket, the addition of a body suit, etc.) can be used as solutions for violations of the dress code, but if these can not make the attire acceptable, then student(s) will be asked to leave the dance. The principal’s/designee’s decision is FINAL.

END OF DANCE PROCEDURES:

Students are not allowed to re-enter the dance upon leaving. Once you have left the dance, you CANNOT, under any circumstances re-enter. Students must vacate the premises within 30 minutes of the dance ending. Florida Statute 1003.31(d)(2) states that students must be under the control and direction of the principal or designee no longer than 30 minutes before or after school hours while on our campuses or while participating in an authorized school-sponsored activity. Parents should not rely on school supervision outside the time limits of such policy. Students under the supervision of school officials past the 30-minute time limit may be given disciplinary consequences with regard to attendance at future after school activities.

STUDENT/GUEST REPONSIBILITIES:

It is the responsibility of you, the student or guest, to resolve any and all questions concerning any of the terms and conditions listed in this agreement prior to the date of the Prom. If you and/or your guest fail to meet any of the terms or conditions listed in this agreement or written in the Pasco County Student Code of Conduct, you understand that you and/or your guest will be required to leave the event and that no refund of the ticket price will be issued.
