Sarah Watts – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – The 2017 LRHS Enchanted Forest Prom is set for April 28, and ticket sales have begun. All Mustangs planning to attend prom need to be aware that prom is a school event that will still have rules.

To begin, there are many rules concerning whether a student will be admitted to the prom or not. Administrators have the right to deny entry without ticket refund.

All Mustangs must attend school for half of a day to attend prom. Any students who leave school any earlier than 11 a.m. on the day of prom will not be admitted to the dance.

Juniors must turn in a parent note in the morning before school to attendance and have a blue pass in order to leave at 11 a.m. Seniors can show their senior privilege cards to attendance to leave at 11 a.m.

Attire at the prom is formal, and students must follow the dress code posted on the LRHS website and on campus. No denim is allowed, and the only hats that are acceptable are top hats and fedoras.

Further, all limos and buses may be searched upon arrival, and breathalyzer tests will be randomly administered.

Finally, the ticket number must match the purchaser’s name at the door, and students must enter with the person who purchased their ticket. Students need IDs in order to be admitted.
