You may go "stag" (meaning alone, or with a group) or as a couple. Homecoming is a semi-formal dance, so please dress accordingly (suits and ties and dresses). Students must wear shoes at the dance so bring comfortable shoes (sandals, flip-flops, etc.).
Most groups or couples (usually couples and singles go together as a larger group) go to dinner before they go to the dance, while some groups have a good meal at home). If you are going to a restaurant, be sure to make your reservations early. Pictures should be taken before the group goes to dinner.
At the dance, make sure you have your tickets with you. There is a coat check available. It is best to leave anything of value at home or secured within your vehicle.
