Guidelines for all LLHS Dances
BEHAVIORAL GUIDELINES for the dance
- Hands are above the waist, but do not touch an individual in a sexual way (or to give the impression that you’re doing that).
- No “dirty dancing,” front-to-back dancing, or “pelvic grinding."
- No running into people on the dance floor, or putting people on your shoulders.
- Chaperones will intervene in any inappropriate situation. The directions they give are authoritative. Chaperones may expel a student from a dance. Parents will be contacted if their child is expelled from a dance.
- If a person or couple needs to be warned more than once, they may be asked to leave the dance or sit out for the remainder of the dance.
- Continued defiance of school rules may result in a student, or couple, being banned from future dances.
DRESS CODE for formal and semi-formal dances
For guys, a shirt and tie would be appropriate.
For girls, a dress must meet the following guidelines…
- Attire should not show cleavage or abdomens. No two-piece dresses.
- See-through dresses are not allowed.
- No cut-outs are allowed on the sides or front panels of dresses.
- Backless dresses should be waist-line height or higher with appropriate coverage on the sides.
These dress code guidelines also pertain to non-LLHS students who may be attending formal dances as guests. Failure to comply with these guidelines will result in the student/guest not being admitted to the dance.
Did you read the article in the Wall Street Journal, describing high schools around the country requiring students to adhere to a certain level of dress at formal events? You can find that article here.
