The High School Beta Club, sponsored by Mrs. Rachel Landry, will be hosting a Sadie Hawkins Dance on Friday, February 17th from 8:00 to 10:00 here at school. This is a fundraiser for Beta Club and a community building event for high school students.
Sadie Hawkins is a casual dance where couples dress in couples' shirts or simple couples' costumes. Students should be creative and keep theme-dress guidelines in mind when choosing what to wear that evening. Clothing that is political in nature is not permitted, nor is clothing featuring adult-themed brands. Clothing that is too revealing or tight is not permitted. Shoes should have a back or at least a wide strap. Skirts/dresses must be no shorter than 3 to 4 inches from middle of the knee. Shorts are NOT permitted for this dance. Leggings as stand-alone bottoms are NOT allowed. Some exceptions to what is normally allowed can be made, but MUST be approved in advance by Mrs. Aucoin. A student whose attire is deemed inappropriate by these published dress guidelines (that cannot easily be corrected) can be denied admittance to the dance and parents will be called. This is at the discretion of the teacher/administrator chaperones on duty for the dance.
The dance is from 8:00 to 10:00 in the Matt Gym. Student drivers may park in the front parking lot. Students must arrive by 8:30. Once inside, students will not be allowed to leave to go to their cars and may not leave the dance until 10:00.
All students and their guests will be breathalyzed upon entering the dance. Students and guests may be breathalyzed during the dance, as well. Any positive result on a breathalyzer test will result in a parent being called and disciplinary consequences as outlined in the Controlled Substance Policy of the Handbook.
All students will refrain from suggestive, inappropriate dance moves; “slam dancing” is also forbidden. Students should NOT pick one another up off of the ground or get on another’s back or shoulders at any time during the dance. Chaperones and administrators on duty will determine what constitutes inappropriate dancing. Students dancing inappropriately will be given one warning. On the second offense, parents will be notified and the student will be asked to leave the dance. No refunds will be given.
The DJ will play radio edits of songs; that means if there are explicit lyrics, they are censored. Students should NOT sing the inappropriate lyrics loudly during the censored part of the song.
Students may have cell phones and should use them wisely; students should remember that it is a violation of the Responsible Use Policy to record and upload to social media sites any pictures and video featuring anyone who has not given explicit permission.
Failure to abide by any of these rules may result in dismissal from the dance and disciplinary consequences at school.
