Important Homecoming Information

Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,

As we welcome you to Homecoming 2017, please be aware of the following:

  • Tickets are not sold at the door.
  • All school rules apply, the same as in a school day.
  • Guests of students are required to follow the same rules as SVHS students, no matter what their age.
  • Tobacco/nicotine/Vapes are forbidden on school property.
  • Drugs or alcohol will result in law enforcement involvement and safe schools hearing, if appropriate.
  • No refunds for early exit.
  • No lewd or sexually suggestive dancing will be permitted (for example, no front to back dancing)

High school dances involve a wide range of ages and maturity levels. School staff will make every effort to recognize these differences, however, the same rules apply to all ages. In particular, decisions about leaving the dance involve obeying parent instructions and rules as well as school rules and procedures.

Students are strongly encouraged to remain until the end of the dance. There is no re-admittance once you leave. Once you leave the dance, you need to leave school grounds immediately. Anyone leaving before 10:00 pm will have to call home with an administrator for permission. Those who leave early for any reason will also need to sign out at the door.

Thank you for your cooperation,

SVHS Administration Team

We have had just over 300 forms returned for 1000 students. All students must have a new form each year.

Thank you students and parents for your cooperation!

School Dance Dress Code

Several questions have come up about dress code for Homecoming.  While school day dress code is relaxed for dances, all students are required to be fully clothed and wear all components of their clothing ensemble at all times with the exception of jacket or wrap.  Two piece, strapless and halter dresses are allowed as long as cleavage is adequately covered and cutouts do not expose more than allowable during the school day.  Dress length must be mid-thigh, as during school day.  An undershirt is not considered fully dressed.
