Prom is this Saturday, May 20th! See below for information on parking, emergency protocols, and more:
How many students are attending? We have already sold almost 200 tickets!
When is the deadline for ticket sales? Tickets must be purchased by 1:00pm this Friday, May 19th. There will be no tickets sold at the door.
Where should students park? There is parking near the Olympic Sculpture Park in the lot below the Pavilion (entrance on Broad St. by the corner of Western Ave & Broad St). There is also parking available on Western Ave.
Are there any other rules for the dance? YES!
Shoes must be worn at all times. Wear comfortable shoes or bring an extra pair you can change into if needed.
School rules regarding student behavior and the use of tobacco, alcohol, and illegal drugs also apply at dances.
Sexually suggestive dances (bumping, grinding, etc.), gestures, and physical contact are prohibited.
To keep students safe, there is no freak dancing or “moshing” nor sitting or lying down on the dance floor.
Can students be kicked out or denied entrance at the dance? YES
Administration can deny entrance at the door to any student who has chosen not to follow the school rules for student behavior. Students who engage in prohibited or unsafe behavior once at the dance will also be asked to leave. Please note that students denied entrance or asked to leave the dance will not receive a refund. Finally, any student with an unexcused absence on Friday will not be allowed to attend the dance on Saturday.
We believe our students will make safe and healthy choices so this can be a fun and memorable Prom weekend for all.

Be aware of your surroundings and trust your instincts. Homelessness can be an issue in Seattle, and while the Olympic Sculpture Park is located in a generally safe area, it is important to remember this and keep your distance from homeless people and strangers, especially since the event takes place at night. If you notice an unsafe situation, you may report it to event staff so they can advise others to avoid it.
