Dear Parent/Guardian & Student:
Mt. Lebanon High School's Class of 2019 is sponsoring a dance for all students and their guests on Friday, April 27, 2018. The theme of the dance is "America" and it will begin at 7:30pm and conclude at 10:30pm. The dress code for this dance is informal so students are encouraged to wear casual, school appropriate, clothing. A ticket costs $5.00 and refreshments will be sold for approximately $1.00 per item. Tickets are now on sale and the last day for ticket sales is Thursday, April 26th at 3:30pm.
Attached is a dance agreement and permission form that is required to be reviewed and signed by each student and his/her parent prior to the purchase of a ticket. No ticket will be sold to a student without submission of this completed form. (Additional copies of this form are available in the Student Activities Office.) I ask that you review the expectations on this form with your son or daughter if they plan to attend the dance.
For this informal dance, student parking will be available in the South Parking Lot. Student access to the building will only be through entrance AA-7 (athletic building entrance). All students will proceed to the Gold gym for a security check, the coat check area, and collection of the their dance ticket. The DJ will be set up in the South gym where the dance will take place.
In particular, I would like to remind everyone of the following expectations and procedures:
-Dance agreement and permission form must be completed before a ticket may be purchased. (A GUEST dance agreement and permission form must also be completed by any non-Mt. Lebanon student, and their parent, attending as a guest. The GUEST form is also attached to this email.)
-Tickets will NOT be sold at the door. Ticket sales end at 3:30pm on Thursday, April 26, 2018.
-Students must enter the dance by 8:30pm.
-Students will be permitted to leave the dance at anytime, but will NOT be permitted to re-enter. (Parents will NOT be notified if a student leaves the dance early. This is the same practice that occurs at athletic and other extracurricular events.)
-Drugs, alcohol, weapons, tobacco, e-cigarettes (vapes), and any other illegal and/or dangerous contraband are not permitted.
-Portable breathalyzers will be on site and may be used.
-All backpacks, bags, and purses will be searched prior to entry. All students will be required to empty their pockets prior to entry. All items confiscated at the security tables must be retrieved at the end of this event. All unclaimed items will be discarded.
-Inappropriate, sexually explicit dancing including grinding and back to front dancing is prohibited. Students will be immediately removed from the dance and sent home. NO warnings will be given.
-Any student who violates any of the rules/expectations at the dance may not be permitted to attend any future dances during their tenure at Mt. Lebanon High School.
On behalf of the high school administration and faculty, we appreciate your continued support to ensure a fun, safe dance for our students.
