Parents & Guardians
It may be hard to believe, but parents do yield the greatest influence when it comes to you teen's safety.  Safety is a shared responsibility. Please do your part to help keep everyone safe.  
Prom Night Tips for Parents
​Here are a few tips that will help you ensure a safe, worry-free evening.
  • Make sure your teen has a plan for the evening and that you know it.
  • Know all of the "hot spot" destinations for pre- and post-prom parties.
  • Take stock of the alcohol and prescription drugs in your home, and make sure it is safely stored or locked up if your teen is having people over.
  • Know who is driving — if it's a limo, check their policy on allowing alcohol in the vehicle.
  • Discuss the school's prom rules with your child and the consequences of violating them.
  • Encourage seatbelt use — the best accessory! Also talk to your teen about the dangers and dire consequences of drinking and driving.
  • Do not rent hotel rooms for prom-goers.
  • Communicate with other parents and school officials.
  • Stay up until your prom-goer safely returns home.
