2021 JUNIOR PROM IS ON!!!

It is with great excitement to formally announce that there WILL be a Junior Prom this year! Holding a prom during these unprecedented times comes with challenges. To ensure the safety of attendees and staff we had to make some changes. Please carefully review the following guidelines for the 2021 Junior Prom.


  • The prom will be held on Monday, June 14th, from 7-10 pm at Falls Manor.

  • Due to covid restrictions, only 288 tickets will be sold for this date. If the June 14th date sells-out, a SECOND night will be made available for June 10th. A minimum of 50 students must request “waitlist” tickets on the payment site once the initial June 14th night sells out, in order for this second night to open up.

  • Because of the limited capacity at our event space, the prom will be exclusive to members of the Junior class and students will only be able to purchase just one ticket.

  • Tickets will be sold online for three nights beginning on May 4th at 6pm and running through May 6th, ending at 11pm.

  • Ticket price is $57 per person.

  • Please note that you should review all information on the ticket site prior to purchasing a ticket, but the payment site will not begin accepting payment until May 4th at 6pm.

  • To promote social distancing, everyone who purchases a ticket must select a table and a cohort group. There will be three cohort groups which eat and dance at different times. Tables will seat 8 attendees. To ensure that you can eat and dance with your friends, you should make sure to coordinate your ticket purchase with your group, as you will be asked to select your table when you purchase your ticket.

  • A buffet dinner and dessert will be served at the prom.

  • You will be required to wear a mask for the duration of the prom except for when you are eating at your table.

  • Photo IDs will be checked at the door.

  • Please click THIS LINK to access the Junior Prom ticket website and review all information prior to purchasing your ticket. Ticket sales begin at 6pm on May 4th on the above link and the yellow button on the right hand side of the site will open for tickets at that time.

  • Once you purchase your ticket, please print it out or download the MyEvents app in order to access your ticket from your phone. You must use the same email address used to purchase tickets to create your account on the app, and your tickets will be linked. You will need to present both your ticket and your student ID upon arrival in order to enter the prom.
