Important Info about
Prom and After Prom Party 2015
Information and Forms
Dear GHS Parents,
As you discuss Prom and After Prom (Friday, May 1st) with your students,
we would like to bring the following to your attention:
Prom night is one of the most dangerous nights of the year for teens: approximately300 teens die each year on Prom night in alcohol-related car accidents. *
While parents do not believe drugs/alcohol are available at parties their teens attend, teens reported attending parties where alcohol, drugs or both are available. **
Drivers under the age of 21 years old will face legal consequences for having ANY alcohol in their system if driving. Severe legal and disciplinary penalties including the loss of driving privileges, a trip to court and a $2,500 fine.
It is illegal for parents to allow teens to drink, even in the home setting. Offenders will receive a mandatory trip to court and a $2,500 fine at a minimum.
The good news is that we offer a GREAT after prom party at our school. We ask that you inform your child that they may attend the After Prom Party (APP) instead of attending or hosting private parties.
The PTSA is hosting this fun event at our school and will have great activities, food and prizes.
