Any person removed from the dance by MHS staff is not entitled to a refund.

All fees and debts must be cleared by the bookstore in order to attend the following dances:  Homecoming, Winter Formal, and PROM. 


PROM Attire

Prom is considered a "formal attire" event. Guys are expected to be dressed in suits and ties and ladies are expected to be in cocktail style dresses or gowns. Although we are aware of the styles that are currently sold in stores for the ladies, modesty is appreciated and expected in regard to strapless and spaghetti strap style dresses. When in doubt bring a shawl or light sweater. Students who are not dressed appropriately may be sent home.  While we have tried to offer a "purse check" location in the past for Prom, we cannot guarantee the availability of a secure location for personal items such as purses, wallets, etc.
