**REFUNDS WILL NOT BE PROVIDED IF ATTENDEE IS NOT ALLOWED TO ENTER PROM VENUE DUE TO DRESS CODE VIOLATION!

IN AND OUT POLICY: Pathways’ Prom attendees will be allowed to leave the venue only if he/she agrees to be accompanied by a chaperon or is under parental supervision.

Upon request, a chaperon will happily accompany you outside the prom venue. However, if an attendee refuses to be accompanied by a chaperon OR gives notice that he or she intends to leave the prom venue, the attendee WILL NOT, under any circumstances, be allowed to re-enter the venue.

BAG AND COAT CHECK PROVIDED & REQUIRED:
For the convenience and safety of our attendees, a bag and coat check area has been provided at the entrance.  All bags larger than a clutch or wallet will be required to be checked at the bag/coat check desk.  

Pathways’ Administrators and Prom chaperons reserve the right to check all purses, bags, coats, and jackets for inappropriate or illegal items at any time.  We highly suggest prom attendees leave all unnecessary, expensive, and irreplaceable items at home. The safety and security of any items cannot be guaranteed.

 

PROM MUSIC POLICY:
Our DJ will be playing a mix of classic and current hits from all musical genres. All songs on the play list have been pre-screened for content. Prom attendees are encouraged to submit their song requests to the DJ prior to prom.  No requests will be accepted on the night of prom!

Students are encouraged to send song requests (must include song title and artist’s name) to our DJ at pathwaysacademy@hotmail.com. Please put “Prom Music” in the subject line.

SONG REQUEST GUIDELINES: No song with profanity, sexual, or obvious drinking/drug related references will be allowed on the play list. Please also consider that many songs are great to listen to, but difficult to dance to. Every song will be reviewed for “danceability” and lyric content. 


DANCING POLICY:

Proper dance behavior is required. No provocative or sexual movements or dirty dancing will be allowed. We want the prom to be a very enjoyable and safe evening for all of our students and their guests. We expect the students and their guests to demonstrate good behavior on the dance floor. Any student choosing not to do so will be asked by a chaperon to stop their inappropriate actions. Further infractions will require leaving the dance floor, and possibly being asked to call a parent to escort you from the prom venue.


END OF PROM PROCEDURE:
Parents – You may enter the venue at 9:45pm to pick-up your child(ren). If you will not be the one picking up your child(ren), please make arrangements for your child(ren) to have a safe ride home. The Pathways’ Administrators and Chaperons are not responsible for attendees once they have left the prom venue.

Adult supervision will be provided for 30 minutes immediately following the end of prom at 10pm to monitor students inside the venue and as the students enter the parking lot areas.
