Prom Dress Code
In order to maintain a healthy, safe, and orderly environment, the following dress code shall be used. The
purpose of a prom dress code is to help you make good choices, not inhibit your style or personality. If you
are bringing a date outside HHS, you are responsible for making sure his/her attire meets the
 Formal prom attire may be classified as a tuxedo or dress suit, including a tie, bow tie, a collared
shirt, and may include a vest. Jeans will not be permitted.
 No canes, hats or headwear are permitted.
 Shirts are to be worn at all times.
 Boys’ shirts must be buttoned up (and remain buttoned up) to at least the second button from the
 Pants should fit properly on the hip and not sag below the waistline.
 Dress shoes must be worn.
 (Refer to “Prom Dress Code 2015” on the Junior Class Website for examples)
 Girls will wear semi formal attire or formal gowns or pantsuits.
 Undergarments must not be showing.
 Dresses may not be cut below the bust line. Rule: place thumbs on collarbone and touch index
fingers together toward bust line. Where your fingers meet is how low your dress can go. The bust
continues around your sides directly under the armpit. With arms down at your side, if flesh
touches flesh below the bust line, the dress is inappropriate.
 No midriff can show or cut-outs that expose the front or sides of midriff (even when arms are
raised). Two-piece dresses must overlap.
 Sheer/see-through fabric over bare areas is not acceptable.
 Back of dress must not be too low-cut or revealing. Back of dress should not go below natural waist.
 Dresses are to be no more than 3 inches above the knee (front and back). This also applies to slits
in dresses. Dress must also be at the appropriate length even if leggings are worn underneath the
 The determination of the appropriateness of student dress and grooming shall rest with the
administration. If the attire is questionable, students are encouraged to show their evening wear to
administrators beforehand to determine if it is appropriate. Contact your class advisor(s) by email
if you have a question about a dress.
Students and their dates who are inappropriately dressed shall be denied entry. If the student dresses
inappropriately, refunds will not be given. Girls will not be permitted to use cover-ups (coats, shawls,
sweaters) over dresses that do not meet dress code as a solution.
