Dress Code: It is VERY important to review the dress code guidelines prior to attending the dance. Attire that is inappropriate for the occasion or deviates from modesty in the judgment of a school administrator may result in being denied admission and/or a Saturday detention will be issued. 

Attending a Catholic school event is optional. Attire must represent the modesty acceptable for a Catholic school event. Guidelines will be strictly enforced for OLP students and their guests.

The Dinner Experience (Prom) is a formal event. Attire that is inappropriate for the occasion or deviates from modesty in the judgment of a school administrator may result in being denied admission and/or a Saturday detention will be issued. Attire must represent the modesty acceptable for a Catholic school event.

Each year, the most difficult task for administrators is the determination of modesty for students at school dances. Traditional interpretations are often at odds with fashion and cultural trends. Modesty is admittedly a subjective interpretation, but one which we have a duty to uphold. Students should therefore err on the side of modesty and formality and not put school administrators in the difficult position of upholding school standards. 

We thank you in advance for your cooperation and respect of the school dance rules.

Ladies: 

  • A tasteful, elegant dress, pantsuit, or jumpsuit is required for this Catholic school event.
  • Dresses must be floor length or calf-length and slits may not be shorter than 4 inches above the knee. 
  • “High Low” dresses are appropriate if they meet the slit length expectation.
    Dresses and jumpsuits may be strapless or off the shoulder, but must be tasteful and appropriate for a Catholic school event.
  • Dresses that are too revealing, expose the midriff or cleavage, are a one-piece or two-piece with any portion of the midriff open, or are too short in length are not appropriate for this event.
  • Attire may not be backless (below the elbow), may not be see-through or have cut-outs on the side or the front.  
  • Please be modest with sheer material. A sheer layer that reveals more than 4 inches above the knee or a low cut neckline is not acceptable for a Catholic high school event.

When selecting your attire for the evening, please remember that shoes must remain on for the entirety of the dance for safety reasons. Please select shoes that allow for you to wear them throughout the evening. The event is outdoors, so please be mindful of weather conditions.
