Homecoming tickets can be purchased online until October 3 for $25 per person. When online ticket sales end on October 3, tickets will be available at the dance for $30. Buy your tickets online here!

After a student purchases a homecoming ticket online, they must pick up their ticket (sticker that is placed on the back of their student ID) at the Homecoming ticket check-in table in the student cafeteria. The Homecoming ticket check-in table will be in the student cafeteria during all lunch periods starting Monday, September 30 and ending Thursday, October 3. Students picking up their dance ticket must show a current student ID.   

Any student bringing a guest must complete and submit a Guest Request Form to the Student Activities Office at least a day in advance of purchasing Homecoming dance tickets. Students bringing a guest must purchase their tickets in the Student Activities Office, and not online. This is to confirm that the Guest Request Form has been submitted and approved.

  • Use this guest form if bringing a student who attends a different high school.
  • Use this guest form if bringing someone who is not a current high school student. Your guest must be under the age of 21.  

Attendees aren’t required to bring a date - get a group of friends together! Attire for this event is semi-formal, which means no jeans or sweatpants. Shoes are required at all times, so please bring an alternative (flip flops, sandals, or canvas shoes) to continue dancing.

Also, several North High alumni reunions are taking place this fall:
