Will I receive a physical paper ticket?
No . . . because you don't need one! Just bring an acceptable photo ID*, and we'll verify your digital Ticket/Guest Voucher purchase.
*Your photo ID must include your physical address and date of birth.
May I request a certain song or list of songs?
Certainly! When you purchase your Ticket, you'll have the option of ranking up to five (5) songs you'd like to hear during your prom. Be aware that some of the best songs to listen to aren't necessarily the best songs to dance to.
Please bear in mind that ours is a Christian organization. Our live DJ will attempt to source censored versions of songs featuring minimal inappropriate lyrics. However, we will not play any songs with objectionable themes. The CHESS-Board's discretion is the final authority in this matter.
Who may leave with whom?
As a general rule, attendees must leave with whoever they arrived with. We will check photo IDs upon entry and note party size and names of each member of every party on a sign-out sheet. No member of a group may leave without all other members of the group until we have made contact with all group member parents/guardians of record.
May I leave whenever I want?
If you need to retrieve something from a vehicle, you will be escorted by two non-related chaperones.
Unless your parent/guardian has notified us that you will be departing prior to the advertised end time, you must stay until prom is officially over. (Pre-arranged exceptions will be noted on the sign-out sheet.)
May I serve as a chaperone?
Thanks for asking! We're in need of a limited number of parent chaperones* who will be expected to monitor all attendees for any violations of Dress Code or Code of Conduct and to escort any student who may need to leave the premises before 11pm.
Chaperones are admitted free of charge, with the option of enjoying the same meal as attendees.
*Chaperones are accepted on a first-come first-served basis up to the number we need according to total attendance. (There will be an area for you to indicate your interest within the Ticket purchase form.)
What should I wear?
Think along the lines of "business casual" or "Sunday best". Ladies may wear a pantsuit. Gentlemen may wear a polo shirt and khaki pants. No T-shirts or jeans, please.
Formal attire is welcome but not necessary.
The same modesty standards as apply to students also apply to chaperones.
I can't chaperone, but I'd like to help. What can I do?
Decorating (set-up and/or take-down)
Manning sign-in and/or sign-out
We will do our best to honor volunteers' preferences for service roles.
