AHS Dance Policy

General:  All students must have valid picture ID to be admitted to the dance.  Only AHS students are permitted to attend regular school dances such as the Welcome Back Dance and Homecoming.  Students who are on AHS Exclusion List are not allowed to purchase dance ticket or attend dance.  Appropriate dress is required. For on campus dances, dress in appropriate theme for the dance. For Winter Ball and Prom, formal attire is required.

There are no in-and-out privileges. If you leave the dance perimeter you will not be allowed back in. In addition, there will be a moderate search upon entry (purse check/pat down). A breathalyzer and law enforcement representative will be present to enforce this policy.  Prescription drugs should be in original containers and officially marked as prescribed for the carrier. Both they, and any over the counter drugs, will be confiscated and held, but available for use during the event and returned upon participant departure.

All school rules apply before, during, and after the event. Students who violate school rules, district policies, California Education Code will receive a five day suspension, and lose all further dance privileges for the remainder of the school year. Students who break the California Penal Code will deal with County Sherriff.  This includes but is not limited to: possession, use, or being under the influence of drugs or alcohol, possession of a weapon, or violent behavior. Parents will be called to pick up their student immediately.  Aptos High recognizes that it is not in the best interest of students and the educational process to hold dances if alcohol or non-prescription drugs are being used prior to coming to the dance or while at the dance.

Dancing:  Appropriate physical contact only. Sexually suggestive dancing is not acceptable. If the behavior looks questionable, it will be stopped. Lewd dancing will result in student and/or couple being asked to leave the dance floor for a 10 minute break and after the second infraction they may be asked to leave the event.

• No bending over beyond 45 degrees
• No inappropriate touching
• No overt and/or prolonged public displays of affection
If multiple warnings for inappropriate dancing occur, the lights may be turned on and/or music stopped or changed as a collective warning for everyone.

Winter Ball/Prom Guidelines:  All above rules/guidelines apply.  In addition, appropriate formal dress is required.  Please read and sign the attached contract. Non AHS students must have an approved guest pass on file before bids will be sold to their host. All contracts and guest passes must be turned in at the time of purchase. 

Pick Up: Students must be picked up within 15 minutes after the end of the dance. Failure to pick-up students will result in failure to attend subsequent dances.
