Miss OLP 2019: Met Gala

Miss OLP Ball

February 2, 2019 | 8:00-11:00 pm | La Gran Terraza at USD

Tickets: $55 per person

Check-in: Begins at 8 pm. Doors close at 8:30 pm and do not open again until 10:30 pm. For safety and supervision, this means that students will not be able to enter after 8:30 pm or leave prior to 10:30 pm. Students must be picked up by 11:00 pm. No re-entry is allowed.

Security: All students and their guests will go through a security check, which includes bags/purses.

Ticket Information: Tickets go on sale Monday, January 14, 2019, and the last day to buy bids is Tuesday, January 29, 2019, at 11:59 pm or until tickets are sold out -- whichever comes first. While the venue is a large facility, this is one of the most popular events at OLP so tickets may sell out prior to the last day to buy tickets. To ensure your attendance to the event, buy early.

We will not re-open ticket sales after the deadline. No exceptions.  

Important: Tickets are non-transferable. The ticket must match the name of the student attending and the student school ID for entry into the dance.

Student, guest and parent cooperation is greatly appreciated. Failure to comply with OLP rules, policies, administrators, and dance supervisors may result in denial to future dances and the student may be dismissed from the current dance without a refund.

All school rules—found in the OLP Student Handbook—apply at the dance for OLP students and their guests, no matter their age.

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

The Miss OLP Ball 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 dance.

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 dance.
  • 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 dance.

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.

Gentlemen: A tuxedo or suit and tie is required for the formal occasion. They must wear dress shoes. Tennis shoes are not permitted. Shirts must remain tucked in for the duration of the event.

IMPORTANT: Students/and or their guests who are dressed inappropriately or do not meet our formal attire expectations (which is determined at the discretion of the administrator/teacher at the event) will be denied admission without a refund and/or may receive a Saturday detention.

If you have questions about the appropriateness of your attire, please speak with Mrs. Marlena Conroy, Assistant Principal.
