Dress Code*

*Please reference our COVID-19 Updates page.

Our dress code can be found here.

Compliance will be verified at the door and periodically throughout the evening.

Should a student's attire be found in violation, s/he has three options:

  1. Change into something else that complies with the dress code.
  2. Fix the problematic ensemble in order to meet the requirements.
  3. Leave the venue.

We don't want to turn anyone away due to a dress code violation. However, we reserve the right to do so, and we will if necessary.

Code of Conduct

Respectful and Courteous Behavior is Expected and Required.

We require all participants -- both students and adults -- to conduct themselves in a proper and decorous manner. Participants are expected to treat each other with courtesy and respect at all times.

Keep Social Media Posts Respectful.

Avoid threats, bullying, sexting, or other inappropriate social media posts. These are a violation of our code of conduct and may prevent you from attending prom.

Avoid Public Displays of Affection.

Holding hands is allowed. However, kissing of any kind is strictly prohibited, as is sitting in another person's lap.

Keep Dancing Clean.

Dancing with a lady's hands on a gentleman's shoulders and a gentleman's hands on a lady's waist is acceptable. Avoid body against body dancing and movements that could be considered provocative such as groping or twerking. Moshing and body surfing are strictly prohibited.

Leave Prom Only with an Escort.

Did you accidentally leave something in your vehicle? Adult chaperones are available all evening to walk students to the parking lot and back to prom. Unfortunately, if you choose to leave the Polk Commons ballroom unescorted, you will not be readmitted.

No Foul Language.

No Vandalism.

No Gum.

No Tobacco.

No Vaping.

No Alcohol.

No Narcotics.

CONSEQUENCES

Code of Conduct violations, including disrespectful or violent behavior, may result in expulsion from the event. CHESS reserves the right to respond to any violation by prohibiting the violator(s) from attending any future prom-related events, including prom itself.
