This year’s Junior/Senior Prom is scheduled for Saturday, May 14th from 6:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. at the Chase Center on the Riverfront in Wilmington, DE, located at 815 Justison St. This evening promises to be one of the year’s most exciting occasions!
Administrators and teachers will be present from 5:30 p.m. until 10:45 p.m. to chaperone the students; all students will be expected to arrive promptly. To be sure that our students are safe, we will call the home of any student who does not arrive by 6:30 p.m. So that everyone understands what is expected of the Prom participants, I would like to emphasize that this is an off-campus, school-sponsored event. The school discipline code will be in effect for the entire evening. All infractions will be dealt with in accordance with school regulations:
Students will be permitted only in the rooms reserved for Prom activities.
Students will not be permitted to leave the Prom location prior to 10:00 p.m.
The school district policy prohibiting smoking at any school sponsored event will be in effect for the evening. This policy also applies to prom guests.
Possession, use, and/or distribution of drugs or alcohol are absolutely prohibited. Students suspected of this offense will be detained and parents will be promptly called to pick them up. The local police will be called to confiscate illegal substances or deal with individuals found to be “under the influence.”
As the Prom is on a Saturday night, early dismissal requests from school on Friday, May 13th for Prom preparation will not be honored.
Guests who do not attend UHS must present a picture ID to enter the prom and may not be more than 20 years of age.
Regular Prom ticket sales will run from Monday, March 28th through Thursday, April 7th during lunch and learn. Tickets bought after Spring Break will incur a $10 per ticket surcharge. Tickets bought after Spring Break can be purchased from Mrs. Brown in room 355. We must submit a count to the Chase Center in advance of our prom. Therefore there will be NO SALES AFTER MONDAY, MAY 2nd.
The cost of each ticket is $80. Checks can be made payable to UHS Activities. All obligations (class dues, lab fees, lost books, library fines, athletic fees, etc) must be paid in full prior to purchasing tickets.
Every student attending the Prom must complete a permission form. Please read it carefully. You may bring a guest from another grade or another school. All students purchasing tickets must have a signed form, and students must also have their guest’s signed form in order to purchase tickets. Outside guests require administrative approval prior to purchasing tickets. Only UHS Juniors and Seniors may purchase tickets- underclass guests may not purchase a ticket separately.
UHS PTO After-Prom Party
As an extension of the Prom, the UHS PTO will be sponsoring our annual After-Prom Party at The Main Event in Newark, DE. Registration for the After-Prom will begin at 11:00 p.m. and continue until 3:00 a.m. Please review the “After-Prom Registration” form that is attached to this email. This year’s After-Prom evening promises to be filled with exciting activities and delicious food. All Juniors and Seniors, whether they attend the Prom or not, are invited to the After-Prom Party free of charge. Our goal is to provide a safe environment so that all students may enjoy these special activities. Please know that we encourage all students to attend the After-Prom, and everyone’s cooperation for this memorable evening will be greatly appreciated.
