Dress Code 

Code of Conduct

MUST be printed and signed to be admitted to event.  Link will also be provided in confirmation email for students and parents to read, print, and sign before arriving at the event.  **Please note that the committee does not have the ability to print forms at the venue, nor will extra copies be available.**
Q:  Where do I find my ticket?
A:  Your email confirmation of purchase is your ticket and will state "PLEASE PRINT IMMEDIATELY."  You will also receive a confirmation from our payment processor, and either are suitable to present at the door (although the email confirmation is preferred.)  Please know that we are not responsible if you use an email provider who automatically unsubscribes you.  Our system can not reissue ticket confirmations.  That email will have a link to the signed agreement form, which can also be found on the website. BOTH PRINTED TICKET CONFIRMATION AND SIGNED AGREEMENT FORM, AS WELL AS PHOTO ID, ARE NEEDED TO CHECK INTO THE EVENT. **Please note that the committee does not have the ability to print these forms at the venue, nor will extra copies be available.**

Q:  Are ID's really required?
A:  Absolutely! (Check our homepage for some ideas on where to acquire free or reduced cost ones.) These will be checked by a chaperone before you ever enter the building.  To help the check in line move quickly, here is what we recommend:  Have your ID and paperwork out in your hand with all info easily seen (in other words, please don't have the paperwork folded, stuck in a pocket or purse, or being held by a friend.)  If you don't have your items readily accessible, you may be asked to move to the back of the line. 

Q:  Will there be food at your event?
A:  Oh my goodness, yes!  We believe in entertaining well, and that includes food and drink.  Offerings will vary with each dance.  A full dinner is not provided, but we do have snacks and heavy hors d'oevres. Our guests expend quite a bit of energy at these dances, so we strongly suggest eating a full dinner and being well-hydrated before the event.

Q:  When is your event?
A:  We hold a fall semi-formal, winter casual, and spring formal event.  Please check the website for all details. 

Q:  Does everyone need a signed agreement/ticket confirmation to attend events?
A:  Yep, even if you are 18+, you need to bring one.

Q:  What if my student needs OTC medication?
A:  The guests expend a lot of energy, and while the music is at a level that is typical for a dance, it is louder than that to which guests may be accustomed. If your teen is prone to headaches, joint pain, etc., you will need to provide them with your own pain reliever. It must be in a baggie or container with their name written on it as well as the name and dosage of the medication . On their form, you must have added signed permission for them to take as needed. This will be kept at the sign-in station with the chaperone.  

Q:  Do you maintain a waitlist for sold out events?
A:  No, we do not. If we are sold out and tickets are returned prior to the cutoff deadline (12PM EST the Tuesday before the event), we will announce a special link on the website as well as our Facebook page.  These tickets will be available for an extra $10 charge to cover administrative expenses. 

Q:  Do you sell tickets at the door?
A:  No, we do not.

Q:  I see your events often say "Sold Out."  Does that mean you are really sold out?
A:  Yep, sure does!

Q:  May I transfer a ticket?
A:  As of October 17th, 2023, we are no longer transferring tickets.  You may request a refund, minus a $10 service fee, by emailing with your name, email, and transaction ID from your payment confirmation.  No refunds will be given after 12PM EST on the Tuesday before the event. 

Q:  What if an event is cancelled?
A:  If Virginia Homeschool Prom has to cancel an event because of inclement weather or unforeseen circumstances, all tickets will be refunded, minus credit card processing fees.

Q:  What is the best way to get in contact with you?
A:  For ticket questions,  For dress code questions,  You are also welcome to message us via Facebook.  If you have a committee member's private contact information, it is a violation of our policies to use that rather than the dance contact info.  It will result in a family's suspension for the next two events.

By purchasing a ticket, you agree to abide by the Code of Conduct, the Dress Code, the FAQ section,  and to listen to the chaperones/adults in charge at the event.  If you have any questions, please let us know.

We are looking forward to a fabulous dance with your students on January 26th at Fry's Spring Beach Club!
