We want this years prom to be the best ever.  In years past we have had people that had to be removed from the prom because of illegal substances.

If there is any suspicion of anyone being under the influence of any drug they will be checked.  School policy will be followed for all infractions of any school handbook rules. We want everyone to have a fun and SAFE evening. Thank you ahead of time for your cooperation.
