Dance Agreement

By purchasing a ticket to attend the SPX homecoming dance, you are agreeing to respect and adhere to all of the policies and expectations of SPX. Tickets are non-transferable and non-refundable. Students will not be admitted to the dance if the name on the ticket does not match the student and/or the student ID.

 1.  Homecoming is a semi-formal event.
 2.  It is very important to review the dress code guidelines prior to selecting your attire for this event. Attire that is inappropriate for the occasion or deviates from modesty in the judgement of a school administrator may result in being denied admission. SPX grooming and accessory guidelines apply. Guidelines will be strictly enforced.

Ladies:

  • A tasteful, elegant dress, pantsuit, or jumpsuit is required.
  • Dresses must come to no higher than three inches above the knee. Slits may hit no higher than three inches above the knee. If you purchase a dress with a slit that does not meet those guidelines, you will need to have the slit sewn.
  • Dresses that are too revealing, are skin tight or form fitting, expose the midriff or cleavage, or are too short in length are not appropriate.
  • Attire may not be backless (below the elbow), may not be see-through or have cut-outs. Covering a cut-out with fabric will not suffice unless that fabric is permanently sewn into the dress.
  • Please be modest with sheer material. A sheer layer revealing higher than three inches above the knee or a low cut neckline is not appropriate.
  • Attire must meet the SPX requirements without the use of cover-ups (shawls, jackets, sweaters, etc.).
  • Dress approval is strongly recommended. A DropBox for the submission of dress photos has been established on the dean’s info page located on the student portal. SPX students can submit for approval on behalf of their guest or guests can e-mail photos directly to the appropriate dean.
  • A t-shirt and/or tights will be issued if a student’s attire is deemed inappropriate. 

Gentlemen:

  • A collared dress shirt, suit or sports coat, with a regular tie or bow tie is required.
  • Dress pants must be worn (no jeans). A belt or suspenders are required.
  • Dress shoes must be worn. Tennis shoes or athletic footwear of any kind is not permitted.

 5.  Students and/or their guest under the influence of alcohol or any other “drug” as defined in the Student/Parent/Guardian Handbook will be denied entrance, removed from the dance, and/ or released to their parent/ guardian. SPX will contact the guest’s school to inform the school of the incident. SPX reserves the right to contact law enforcement.
