CHANGE FOR PROM – Because of COVID contact tracing guidelines from Jones County Health, ALL JUNIORS AND SENIORS ATTENDING PROM MUST SIGN UP IN THE OFFICE. IF YOU ARE BRINGING A GUEST, YOU MUST SIGN UP YOUR GUEST IN THE OFFICE EVEN IF YOUR GUEST IS A MHS STUDENT. You can do this at the counter in the office. ALL GUESTS THAT DO NOT ATTEND MHS MUST COMPLETE THE DANCE GUEST REGISTRATION FORM. This includes MHS alumni, those students attending other high schools, and those that are out of school. This is an important change from previous years as we must have phone numbers to use if the need arises for contact tracing.
Guest registration forms are due to the High School Office by 12:00 noon on Friday, April 16th. The registration forms are available at the drive up window.
The Post Prom Committee will be hosting a Grand March on Saturday, April 17 at 4:00 pm at the Monticello Football Field, masks optional (rain location is in the High School Auditorium, masks required). Students need to check-in at 3:45 pm sharp. A suggested free will donation of $1.00 would be appreciated to help with our fundraising efforts for next year. The football field will be opened at 3:30 pm.
Parent donations of food/drink can be dropped off after you come to Grand March in the high school commons. Students/parents/community can drop off donations at the District Office or the HS Office. Check our Monticello Post Prom Facebook page for up-to-date information.
This year’s Post Prom Party will be held at the High School commons area, gym, auditorium, and wrestling room. This year’s entertainment is filled with a variety of activities. We have something for everyone! We will be serving snacks and drinks and will have a prize for each MHS Junior and Senior that attends after our entertainment finishes. The events will start at 11:00 pm. We are asking for students to arrive no later than 12:00 am. Doors will lock at 12:00 am and will end approximately at 1:30 am. Masks are required for Post Prom.
