Senior Updates                                                      

Prom is TONIGHT from 8pm until Midnight, with doors closing at 10pm. The field will be open from 8pm to 9pm for you to visit the locker rooms and to go on the field for pictures.  Also remember, there are no heels on the turf!  Once you leave the field, the locker rooms, or the prom itself, there is NO re-entry.   If you bring a guest, they must check in with you at the ticket table.  If you purchase GoFan tickets, do NOT activate the ticket on your phone until the teacher at your check-in table instructs you to do so. Please use your school email and your phone for GoFan - screen shots from other devices will not be used.  Also there are no refunds or transfers on any tickets.  No bags or backpacks are allowed into prom, and all other items will need to be checked into coat check upon arrival.
