School Dance Guidelines

2017-2018

All students are expected to abide by the Guidelines for School-Sponsored Activities, as addressed in the Student Handbook and detailed below, when attending a CJ dance. Questions about the CJ school-sponsored dance guidelines should be directed to Greg Mueller, administrator, who may be reached at (937) 461-3740 x226 or at gmueller@cjeagles.org

Dance Rules

While music and dance styles have certainly changed over the past years, students should be reminded that school sponsored dances are not clubs or private parties. While the school does not want to restrict the fun that students have while at school-sponsored dances, students must be reminded that dancing, which the Administration of CJ considers lewd or overtly sexual in nature, will not be tolerated. Students dancing in a manner deemed lewd or inappropriate will be removed from the dance floor for the first offense and will be removed from the dance altogether on the second offense. Front to back contact (grinding) is an example of inappropriate dancing and will not be tolerated. Continued inappropriate dancing/behavior at dances could affect attendance in future CJ dances. CJ students are responsible for their outside guests’ behavior.

RULES FOR HOMECOMING, CHRISTMAS DANCE AND PROM

  • Students must be in attendance at school at least 3 ½ hours on the day prior to the dance.
  • Everyone must be at the dance by 9:00pm. No one will be admitted after 9pm.
