Reminder: the Homecoming Dance is not a “date” event. While students may come as couples, all students should be encouraged to attend this dance – dates are not encouraged. Students have a much better time with friends. Promise!

Homecoming tips:
• Students must arrive between 7:00 and 8:00pm or the school will notify the student’s household their student is missing.
• Students will not be permitted to leave the dance before 10:00pm without parent permission. (Chaperones will call a parent for verbal permission.)
• High heels may not be worn in the gym. Students will have access to their lockers to stow their personal belongings, such as phones, shoes, etc. AHS recommends students bring flip flops, socks, or something for their feet.
• Freshmen parents: corsages and boutonnieres are common for dance goers. Even those who do not attend the dance with a date normally receive flowers from their household.
• Boys wear dress pants, a dress shirt, and a tie.
• Girls wear formal wear.
• The administration and chaperones monitor dancing and inappropriate dancing will result in a warning and/or removal from the dance.
