CHS Students Advised to Follow Winter Ball Guidelines

Coventry High School administration ask students to abide by the following rules and guidelines to ensure a safe and fun evening for everyone.

The following school dance guidelines can be found in the Coventry High School student handbook. Parents are asked to take a few moments to review the expectations with their student beforehand; especially those involving appropriate dancing.  

  • School dances are for Coventry High School students and their ticketed guests (high school students but persons not older than 20 years old unless prior approval from the Principal is given)
  • CHS students are responsible for the behavior of their non-CHS guest.
  • The Administration reserves the right to exclude any non-CHS students from attendance.
  • Tickets for dances will be sold in advance during school time. No tickets will be sold within two weeks of a dance without written approval from an administrator. No tickets will be sold at the door. A dance ticket is not transferable. Only the student that purchased the ticket can use it unless prior approval from the club advisor has been granted.
  • Administration reserves the right to evaluate the appropriateness of student behavior while at this dance. Students are expected to dance appropriately (face to face and with enough space between them). Absolutely no "grinding" is accepted and students will be asked to leave. Students must follow all school rules at school dances and violations will not be allowed. Students who display any behavior in violation of school rules will be asked to leave the dance, with appropriate disciplinary action to follow. Parents will be notified of these occurrences.
  • Parents are required to pick up their child at the conclusion of the dance. Student supervision is only during the scheduled time. Parents arriving late to pick up students may result in their child(ren) being excluded from future events.
  • The Administration reserves the right to exclude students from dances for poor behavior and/or poor academic performance. Only students in good standing with the school will be allowed to attend; including regular attendance. Students must be present for a full day of school on the day of the dance.
  • Students who receive disciplinary consequences for three offenses within one school year will be immediately placed on social suspension. The social suspension will conclude 30 school days after the completion of the discipline. Students will be prohibited from attending all social events. Zero tolerance suspensions will result in immediate social suspension. During the school year, any subsequent infractions will result in additional 30 school day social suspensions.
  • Any student causing trouble at any dance will be excluded from future dances for the remainder of the school year.
  • Any student attending a dance without purchasing a ticket will be sent home and excluded from future dances.
  • Signed permission slips are required of all dances.
  • Incurred fees cannot be refunded.
