Message sent to DGS seniors and parents on Friday, April 16
Hello Class of 2021!!!!
Thank you so much for completing the survey earlier this semester. We acknowledge that this year has not gone as we would have liked or imagined. However, we are trying to create end-of-the-year activities that are meaningful and incorporate your desires that you shared in the survey. We will keep you updated as we finalize details. You may want to bookmark the senior information webpage as that has the most current information.
To that end, it’s time to start planning for prom for our graduating seniors in the class of 2021! An overwhelming majority of you indicated the importance of having a formal event with your entire class. In trying to stay in line with the guidance and restrictions caused by the pandemic, we are planning an outdoor prom so that the largest number of students can attend. However, because it is outside, there is still a chance for inclement weather. In that case, things will be moved indoors - where there are greater restrictions in terms of number of attendees. If we need to move to an indoor event, students will be assigned a “shift” to attend prom, essentially creating two events on that night. We will attempt to make a decision in response to the weather by noon that day. Details are provided below, but we wanted you to be fully aware of some of the challenges that we are addressing. Our goal is to provide you with an elegant evening to spend with your classmates.
When: Tuesday, May 18, 2021
Where: Bolingbrook Golf Club
Time: 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM (Note: if rain, 5:00-7:30 or 8:30-11:00)
Meal: Information about the meal & safety guidelines Click Here
Cost: $85 (The deadline to purchase tickets is Friday, May 7, 2021)
How to Purchase Tickets
DGS will begin selling tickets for Prom on Wednesday, April 21st at 4:00 PM. You can purchase your ticket on the DGS Activity Event Page beginning at 4:00 on April 21. Each student will purchase one individual ticket. (Please note our ticket capacity is 400 DGS Seniors from the Class of 2021)
How to Select Your Table
Our goal is to provide a safe & memorable experience for the Class of 2021 at our Masquerade Prom. In order to do this, 8 students will be seated at a table outdoors on the beautiful driving range underneath an elegant tent with capacity for 40 people in that space. On May 10, 2021 students who have purchased their Prom ticket will receive instructions and a link via school email to sign-up for a table using Sign-Up Genius.
This year, a videography company will film students arriving at Bolingbrook Golf Club. They will also capture special moments throughout the night. A few days after prom, students will be sent a video link to a 2021 Masquerade Prom Hype Video to remember such a special evening with friends.
Monster Entertainment will provide music for our elegant event.
We will enjoy music and lights to keep the good vibes going throughout the night. Please note, per safety guidelines, dance floors are not permitted. Fortunately, being outside allows us to move and groove in some safe ways at our tables or as we mingle with friends on the driving range while maintaining a social distance enjoying the atmosphere.
Attire and Expectations:
Prom is a formal event, but please be sure to dress appropriately for the weather. Students may want to consider wearing flats or wedges as any heels could sink into the ground outside.
This special occasion is a formal atmosphere where good manners and polite behavior are expected. All school rules apply at prom, and school sanctions for any violation of those rules may be used, including exclusion from participation in the graduation ceremony.
Students should be sure to have their current South High ID to present for admission.
Masks must be worn throughout the evening and only removed while eating at your table.
We will have access to the bathrooms inside of Bolingbrook Golf Club.
Elegant & Entertaining Event with Friends
To all our seniors, please know that our Senior Class Board and administration are committed to providing a safe and memorable event that everyone will enjoy.
COVID Safety Guidelines In Case of Inclement Weather
In case of inclement weather, Prom will be held indoors.
In order to do this, students will be assigned to a shift.
200 students will attend shift A and 200 students will attend shift B.
*Please note, as we assign shifts, students will be kept with their table crew of 8 and then assigned a space in the ballroom among their peers.
In between the shifts, Bolingbrook Golf Club will clean the ballrooms for the next group of students.
*Please note, all Prom ticket sales are final. Unless a student has a documented case of having to be quarantined for being ill or for being a close contact to a positive case as confirmed by our school nurses, refunds will not be given.
