Prom is one of many significant activities that will occur as Lemont High School heads into the latter portion of the school year. We wanted to provide you with some information about Prom in an effort to answer any questions that might arise.
Lemont High School’s 2017 Prom will be held on Sunday, April 23, at the Bolingbrook Golf Club (2001 Rodeo Drive, Bolingbrook; (630) 771-9400) from 5-10 p.m. Admission to Prom is limited to Lemont High School juniors and seniors and their dates.
All guests who are not Lemont High School students MUST have a Date Request Form signed and completed prior to purchasing a ticket.
Date Request Form
The completed form must be returned to the school’s Police Liaison Officer, Robert Keane, and be approved prior to a ticket being purchased. Forms should be returned by Friday, March 17, and must be handed in at the time of the ticket purchase. Forms can be downloaded from the link above or picked up in the PPS Office. Students are responsible for their guests and their actions.
All students and guests must have a photo ID with them at Prom. Absolutely no students will be admitted without a photo ID. Prom tickets are $50 per person, and include dinner and dancing. Tickets must be purchased in the Commons during lunch periods from March 20-24. This year, students will have the opportunity to choose who will sit at their table by submitting a table sign-up form (link below).
This online form is to be submitted by one person for the entire table before anyone sitting at the table can purchase a ticket. The person filling out the form needs each person's t-shirt size, parent contact phone numbers, and any dietary restrictions for all of the people at the table. Students must be logged into their school-issued Google accounts to access the survey!
Prom Table Sign-Up Form
Lemont High School’s administration and faculty have established the following guidelines for school-sponsored events - including Prom - in an effort to provide safe, appropriate, drug-free activities:
The combination of driving and drinking or drug use is a frightening thought for all of us, especially when it involves young people. Although this concern is with us throughout the year, it is heightened during the months of April and May, since these months signify the approaching close of the school year.
- A student who appears to be under the influence will not be admitted into the school activity, and his/her parents/guardians will be notified.
- If a student or his/her guest is under the influence, disciplinary consequences will be applied according to the Student Code of Conduct, which is found in the Student Handbook. These consequences may include police notification.
As we near the close of the school year, Prom, Graduation and other end-of-the-year activities will generate festivities around our community. Many parents/guardians become concerned about the form that some of these festivities take, specifically the possibility of under-aged students consuming alcoholic beverages or partaking in drug use.
Adults who furnish alcohol to minors face criminal and civil liability. Please click the link below for more information on parental liability and child curfew.
Parental Liability and Child Curfew
Some concerned parents/guardians have asked the school what they should do when they become aware of an upcoming party at which alcohol will be served. As a public service, Lemont High School and the Lemont Police Department have established a method by which this information may be reported. Parents/guardians may reach Officer Robert Keane by e-mail by clicking on his name, or by phone at (630) 243-3229. Parents, students and community members all are encouraged to report such activities, or to ask related questions. It is in the interest of prevention that this service is provided.
Prom is a wonderful evening for everyone who attends. We appreciate the many efforts made in helping us maintain its success and to provide a safe and enjoyable atmosphere for our students.
