      Due to restrictions with our prom venues, we are limited to the first 570 students for prom.


      Prom Expectations

      Accumulating six or more unexcused tardies and/or eight or more unexcused absent periods, during January 21 to March 13 will prevent you from participating in prom.

      All disciplinary consequences must be served prior to April 17, 2020.

      Any violations of the D300 Code of Conduct will be reviewed by the school’s administrative team; participation in prom activities will be determined on an individual basis.

      Dress appropriate for the occasion. No jeans will be permitted. This is a formal dance and the expectation is that attire should reflect a formal occasion.

      All school rules apply at prom.

      If any student is found to be under the influence of alcohol or drugs, appropriate actions will be taken by the administrators and law enforcement at the dance.


      Expectations for Graduation

      You must have a D-CHS cap and gown in order to participate in the graduation ceremony.

      Inappropriate behavior at school and/or graduation can have an adverse effect on your participation in the ceremony. When families and students choose to celebrate a specific graduate, it can frequently take away from the moment of the following graduates. Please consider that sometimes that timing is disrespectful of the person who is receiving his or her diploma at that moment.

      At the end of the ceremony, when we present the D-CHS Class of 2020, is the appropriate time to celebrate every graduate. Out of respect for your classmates and peers, please encourage family and friends to hold their exuberance until the final moment.

      Students are expected to arrive an hour before the ceremony begins and stay through the entire Commencement Ceremony.

      As part of the Sears Centre’s safety protocol, random security wanding for all guests, students, and faculty will occur. This may add a slight delay to your access to the arena, so please allow enough time for any such delay. Thank you for your cooperation in advance.

      This year, we will be doing the elementary graduate walk directly before graduation rehearsal, departing D-C at 9 a.m.. It is our hope that you will join your classmates in walking the halls of the elementary school where you went to school to help inspire younger students and show them what a real Dundee-Crown graduate looks like.
