8th Grade Dance Dress Code

The dance is a special evening and students are allowed to "dress up", as per school dress code. Apparel for the night dance means nice school clothes - NOT formal wear such as tuxes and gowns. Girls, wear your nicest day dress. No strapless dresses or backless dresses unless covered by a shawl. Dresses must not show cleavage or be shorter than mid-thigh. Boys, wear your nicest dress pants or dress shorts and collared shirts. Do not wear blue jeans or baggy pants. Athletic clothing such as mesh shorts, t-shirts or shirts with slogans are not allowed.

It is required that students attending the dance be in the dance by 6:00p.m. and remain in the dance until it is over, unless they have made prior arrangements with an administrator.



Eighth grade students must pay all fines or they will not be allowed to participate in the 8th grade dance. Sixth & seventh graders' fall class schedules will be held until fines are paid.
