Parade Guidelines, Aptos High

Aptos High School Homecoming Parade

Student Guidelines

Aptos High works hard to protect our positive image in the community. All parade

participants and students viewing the parade are required to respect the following

guidelines. Any violation of the guidelines could result in administrative disciplinary action:

For all parade participants and viewers:

  •  Respect neighboring businesses and residents. Please stay out of yards and
    off of landscaping. Do not vandalize any property.
  •  Clean up after yourself & your class. Do not litter.
  •  Positive cheering is encouraged. Booing or other negative jeering may result
     in disciplinary consequences.

For students in the parade:

  •  Must arrive at 2PM
  •  Do not throw/toss anything from any vehicle. If you are passing out candy or
     other items, you must walk to the recipient and give it to him/her.
  •  There is absolutely NO getting on or off of a vehicle. If you are riding on a
     vehicle in the parade, you must start the parade on a vehicle and remain
     there for the duration of the parade.
  •  At the end of the parade, please disperse quickly. Use sidewalks to walk on
     and remember to respect businesses. Use caution and look out for cars as
     the street is reopened after the parade.

Please remember to show respect and HAVE FUN!

Aptos High Dance Policy

General: All students must have valid picture ID to be admitted to the dance. Only AHS students are permitted to attend regular school dances such as the Welcome Back Dance and Homecoming. Students who are on AHS Exclusion List are not allowed to purchase dance ticket or attend dance. Appropriate dress is required. Girl’s dresses must be at least as long as a person’s fingertips fully stretched at their sides. Boys must keep shirts on at all times. 
There are no in-and-out privileges. If you leave the dance perimeter you will not be allowed back in. In addition, there will be a moderate search upon entry (purse check/pat down). A breathalyzer and law enforcement representative will be present to enforce this policy. Prescription drugs should be in original containers and officially marked as prescribed for the carrier. Both they, and any over the counter drugs, will be confiscated and held, but available for use during the event and returned upon participant departure.
All school rules apply before, during, and after the event. Students who violate school rules, district policies, California Education Code will receive a five day suspension, and lose all further dance privileges for the remainder of the school year. Students who break the California Penal Code will deal with County Sherriff. This includes but is not limited to: possession, use, or being under the influence of drugs or alcohol, possession of a weapon, or violent behavior. Parents will be called to pick up their student immediately. Aptos High recognizes that it is not in the best interest of students and the educational process to hold dances if alcohol or non-prescription drugs are being used prior to coming to the dance or while at the dance. 
Dancing: Appropriate physical contact only. Sexually suggestive dancing is not acceptable. If the behavior looks questionable, it will be stopped. Lewd dancing will result in student and/or couple being asked to leave the dance floor for a 10 minute break and after the second infraction they may be asked to leave the event.
•No bending over
• No inappropriate touching
• No overt and/or prolonged public displays of affection

If multiple warnings for inappropriate dancing occur, the lights may be turned on and/or music stopped or changed as a collective warning for everyone
