Dress Code for Prom

Parents are expected to monitor and approve clothing according to the following guidelines. Failure to adhere to the guidelines will result in denied entry to the prom and forfeiture of prom ticket.

  • Strapless or spaghetti strap dresses are acceptable provided the dress does not over-expose the student. Note: If a strapless dress is chosen, the student must make sure it fits snugly and will not slip down while dancing. Pulling a dress up and “adjusting it” takes away from the sophisticated look expected at prom.
  • Knee length, tea length and long dresses are permitted. Short skirts or dresses must be no shorter than mid thigh.
  • Dresses must have necklines that ensure appropriate coverage of the bust area.
  • Dresses must have backlines that come to mid back
  • Dresses that show bare stomachs and/or sides of the torso are not permitted.
  • Dresses with low-cut or plunging necklines that expose too much are not allowed. A dress that may be acceptable on one person may expose too much on another one, depending on body shape and size.
  • Shawls or drapes cannot be used to cover what is inappropriate about your attire
  • Dresses with side, front, or back slits that extend above mid thigh are not permitted.
  •       A suit and tie or tuxedo is appropriate. No hats (casual or formal) and no canes will be allowed inside the for security purposes.
  • Remember: Prom is meant to be a tasteful and elegant event.
