School Dances

Moorhead High School will hold three dances during the 2019-20 school year, Homecoming, Prom and Morp. Out-of-school guests must be accompanied by MHS students who have met dance attendance requirements and have a “Dance Guest Form” turned in to their class principal one week prior to the dance. Guests for Homecoming and Morp must be enrolled in high school and in good standing. Students are not permitted to enter after 10 p.m., and once students leave, they are not permitted to re-enter. Students are not eligible to attend any student dance until all assigned detentions have been completed. All students are subject to a passive alcohol screening prior to entering a school dance.

Prom is a school event for junior and senior students who attend Moorhead High School. Each student choosing to attend may invite one guest. If you are bringing a guest (anyone other than another junior or senior from MHS), you must pre-register that guest in the high school office. Guests must be at least a high school sophomore and not older than age 20. School policies apply to all students and guests during prom.

Students are expected to stay in the building until the end of the dance. Once a student leaves, he or she will not be readmitted. Students who wish to go outside or to their vehicles during the dance must be escorted by a chaperone.
