As we wait for prom, students have some things to remember and say how they feel about the nerve-racking day.

In order to leave early on Friday, May 27th, you will need to ask your parent or guardian to write a note that gives you permission to check out. Then, drop off the note to the attendance office by Friday morning for authorization. If you haven’t gotten your ticket, the invitation and ticket pick-up are at the student store during nutrition and lunch only; don’t forget your prom ticket and invitation when you arrive at the venue.

Attendance is only mandatory for the first two periods in order to go to prom.

The official date for prom is Friday, May 27th, in the California Science Center from 7 p.m. to 11:59 p.m.

There will be parking available for $15 per car and $30 per bus, as well as a pick-up and drop-off area.

For protection, security will be conducting mandatory pat-down and purse searches for any prohibited items.

  • There is also a confiscation list, so don’t bring these items:
  • Alcohol/Flasks
  • Gum
  • Glow in the dark items
  • Pens/Pencils
  • Sharp objects
  • Markers
  • Tobacco products
  • Lighters/matches
  • Water bottles
  • Nail polish
  • Weapons
  • Illegal substances
  • Wallet chains
  • Canes and zoot chains
  • Liquid items
  • Mouthwash
  • Glass Bottles
  • Perfume/body spray
  • Eye drops

Here are what seniors have to say.

“It’s okay, I feel okay about it because it’s prom. It’s not like all that, and I don’t think it’s going to be all that,” said Paula Opun from SAS.

“I’m a little nervous, but also, like, kind of excited. Although I know it’s gonna be like, not the best,” said Vink Brand from PAM.

“I’m excited for prom because it’s like the first big, like, formal celebration I’ve been to. And it’s gonna be like, really fun,” said Zora Young from NMA.

“I think it’s mostly a couple thing but I say if you’re like, if you’re if you’re a single person I say just enjoy with friends and have a really good time, that’s all that matters,” said Queen Griffin from PAM.

“I’m pretty excited. I didn’t want to go at first but I think now because I got one of the free tickets. So, like I recently went dress shopping so that once I saw the dress I was like, oh, like, it made me excited for prom,” Daniela Antonio from NMA.

“I’m excited, I can’t wait to go but I’m really tired,” said Candida Hernandez from SAS.

“I feel happy because two years ago they weren’t allowed to attend prom because of COVID. But, not happy because I’ve always looked forward for my grandpa to see me go to prom,” said Vannesa Meza from PAM.
