School Dances

 

School Dance Policy

Dances are a privilege for students of WTHS to attend. WTHS students must present their current school ID upon entering any school-sponsored dance. All school dances and events are drug and alcohol free events.  In order to attend, all students and outside guests must remain drug and alcohol free for the duration of the event.  By purchasing a ticket and attending the dance or event, students agree to all rules and conditions of a Warren Township High School function.  All rules in the Student Handbook will be enforced. In addition, dancing that is defined as sexually explicit or otherwise inappropriate will not be allowed.  Students will be given one warning, and additional contact with staff will result in the parent or guardian being notified and the student will be removed from the dance. If students are unable to adhere to the requirements, parents will be notified and appropriate action will be taken including but not limited to: school discipline, referral to local law enforcement, loss of privilege to attend future dances and/or events.  

No student will be permitted to purchase a dance ticket if they have any of the following outstanding fees: past due fees, fines (i.e. textbooks) or co-curricular fundraiser money.
