      Prom Expectations

      Accumulating six or more unexcused tardies and/or eight or more unexcused absent periods, during February 16th to April 2nd will prevent you from participating in prom.

      All disciplinary consequences must be served prior to April 20, 2018.

      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 DCHS 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 extremely disrespectful of the person who is receiving his or her diploma at that moment.

      At the end of the ceremony, when we present the DCHS Class of 2018, it 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.
