The buzz is that MANY students are coming to and excited about the dance!

  • When: Thursday, September 22 from 3:00-5:00 PM

Important to remember about the dance:

  • The dance will begin right after school ends.
  • If a student leaves the dance or school property after the school day is over, they will not be admitted or re-admitted to the dance, even if they have already paid.
  • The dress code is casual. This is not formal or semi-formal like a Homecoming.
  • No outside guests are allowed. Anyone who comes to the dance must be enrolled at Jeannette AND have their Jeannette ID on.
