    RIO AMERICANO DANCE RULES

    Rio Americano dances are important social events for students.  The school must maintain a reasonable standard of appropriate behavior and dance movements.  Students must recognize that movements and dance styles present in non-school settings or portrayed in the entertainment industry are not always appropriate in the high school setting. Therefore, the following guidelines will be used to determine appropriate behavior and dance movements.

    All Rio Americano High School rules will be enforced at school dances.

    RIO AMERICANO DANCE RULES (CURRENT SCHOOL I.D. REQUIRED AT ALL DANCES)

    **There will be zero tolerance on following of the rules**

    1.     No tickets will be sold at the door.  All tickets must be purchased by 4:00 P.M. on the last Thursday prior to the dance. Current student ID is required to purchase dance tickets. Tickets are sold in the Financial Office before and after school, during break and lunch.  All tickets must be purchased in advance.  Students will not be admitted without a receipt.  Replacement ID’s have a 24 hour turnaround time. No replacement student photo ID’s will be made the last day of ticket sales.

    2.     NO Refunds will be given.

    3.     Admission into the dance will be allowed during the first hour only.  Special circumstances resulting from school sanctioned events must be brought to an administrator’s attention at least twenty-four (24) hours prior to the dance.

    4.     Rio Americano dances are for Rio Americano students and their pre-registered guests only.  Guest passes must be submitted to the Vice Principal’s Office by school closing on the Wednesday prior to the dance. Only one (1) guest or date may be invited and registered per student.  A guest or date must arrive with the student who invited and registered him/her.  Guests must adhere to all rules.  No guests over the age of 20 or enrolled in middle school will be approved.

    5.     Students AND guests must show current picture identification to be admitted.

    6.     Tobacco, drugs, and alcohol, will not be allowed at the dance or on school property.

    7.     Students who are in possession of drugs or alcohol or who are intoxicated at the dance will have the following consequences imposed:

    §  5-day suspension and possible expulsion referral       

    §  Referral to law enforcement.

    §  4-week period of social probation during which time the student will not be allowed to participate in any extracurricular activity, including athletics.

     

    8.   Dancing needs to be appropriate for a school setting. Students who engage in dancing deemed inappropriate will be removed and will lose dance attendance privileges.  If large groups engage in such activities, it may be necessary to stop the music and end the dance.  We want to maintain a safe atmosphere conducive to everyone's enjoyment.  The school administration and staff chaperones will use their best judgment to identify dance moves or styles that are contrary to the dance rules.

     9.     Students may leave the dance at any time. However, once a student leaves the dance, he or she must leave campus and may not return to the dance.

    10.  Loitering in the parking lot or around the campus will not be permitted. Students and guests must leave immediately after the conclusion of the dance.

    11. Students may have NO MORE THAN 2 F’s. Tickets will NOT BE SOLD to students who have 3 or more F’s.
