All school rules, including dress code, are applied at all school dances. Students must be in school for at least ½ day (11:15-2:45pm) to participate in evening dances. Students who are absent due to illness on the day of the dance may not attend; students who have been absent for other excused reasons will be granted permission to attend at the sole discretion of the principal.
Dance Guest Procedures
Students must request approval to bring a guest to a school dance. Guests to a dance must be of high school age. Springfield students must complete a permission slip available on the high school webpage with the following information:
- Guest’s name, address, phone number, age, and current high school
- Parent/Guardian permission for both students (Springfield and guest)
- Assistant principal/principal approval from sending school
- STHS administrative approval
To ensure the health and safety of attendees, all students and guests may be breathalyzed by a high school administrator for the presence of alcohol prior to entering a school dance.
