Dances

When students attend a school dance, they do so to enjoy a school-sponsored social event.  The following guidelines are intended to guarantee that all students can enjoy Pleasant Grove High School dances.

PRIOR TO DANCE

A. A dance policy letter must be signed and returned by the student when the student purchases a ticket to the dance. 
B. All tickets will be sold in advance of the dance at the ASB window or the controller's office window.
C. When students purchase a ticket, they must present their current student ID card. 
D. Students must present their student ID card and their signed ticket at the door before entering. 
E. A limited number of guest passes will be issued for some dances. A background check will be completed for each guest request. The school administration reserves the right to issue and revoke the guest pass at any time. Guest pass requests will be given to Pleasant Grove students who have a school ID card at the time of application. All guests must be at least high school-aged and under the age of 21. All guests must have a photo ID to be presented at the time of entrance to the dance. No ID = No ENTRANCE. NO EXCEPTIONS. NO REFUNDS. Middle school students are not eligible to attend any high school dance. 


REQUIREMENTS AND EXPECTATIONS DURING AND AFTER THE DANCE

A. Certain dance styles are not appropriate; sexually suggestive dancing and dancing that simulated violence will not be permitted. Depending upon the degree of violation, the student may be removed from the dance with no prior warning, or, with prior warning, continues to violate the policy. If a student is removed from a dance, they may not be allowed to attend the next school dance. B. Dances are open ONLY to Pleasant Grove High School students and approved guests from other schools. C. All guests must arrive and enter the dance with their host student and have the approved guest pass, ticket, and photo ID with them as they enter. D. Students must enter all dances within 90 minutes of the beginning time of the dance. Students that leave before the dance ends will not be readmitted. E. Students must be picked up from the dance within 30 minutes of the end of the time of the dance. Failure to be picked up within this timeframe may result in a student not being allowed to attend other dances during the school year. F. Students are encouraged to leave valuables at home.
Parents are welcome to volunteer at dances to help assist staff in supervision, help in the snack bar, or help with the coat check.
