It is for the safety of our students, and no parent may chaperone the dance without this form on file. Paper forms are available at the table outside or the form can be filled out online, printed, signed, and returned to the Deep Run office ASAP. A link to the Henrico Volunteer Form is available via the Deep Run PTA web site, under “Volunteers.”

If you leave the dance early for any reason, you will forfeit your community service hours. The only exception to this rule is if a student is participating in a school related event that causes them to be late or leave & return.

48 We ask that students DO NOT drive to the dance
We ask that students DO NOT drive to the dance. This is for the student’s safety and to reduce the number of cars in the parking lot. Parking is limited and the students will be very tired when the dance is over.

49 DON’T FORGET! Eat before you come to dance
Do NOT pack anything you shouldn’t. There will be extra security on campus throughout dance and bags WILL be checked upon sign in. Start costumes TOMORROW Don’t forget glow sticks!!! All medications must be turned in upon sign in (even Advil, etc) in a Zip Lock labeled with child’s name on it. Please include directions. Only inhalers may be go to dancer’s room.

50 Checks made out to DRHS/Minimum of $120 (This does not count sign up fee)
If dancer needs to leave dance for any reason, his/her parent must come in with their id and sign child out / into the dance. (signed note from parent if they are out of town). Medications: The only thing you can take into your room is an inhaler. Mrs. Kern’s sister will be there. Advil, etc has to be in a bag turned in If your parents will be out of down, they have to write a note saying you can leave during the dance with blah blah blah with their phone number

51 We would like to invite ALL families and the DRHS community to the DRMD Finale. 7:30 – 10pm on Saturday March 15th. You do NOT want to miss out.
