  • Attendance is limited to currently enrolled Kennedy students only.
  • Tickets must be purchased online through Vanco.
    • The window to purchase tickets - limited to one per transaction - will only be open during lunch periods, from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. 
    • Students must provide the following information when purchasing tickets: Name, ID Number, Grade and School Email
    • Students must present a student ID (either physical ID or via Infinite Campus on their mobile device) to get into the dance.
  • All students must have a plan to be picked up immediately following the dance. If you are picking up your student, please be at the school at 10 pm. Any student who drives or walks is expected to immediately leave the school grounds. Failure to do so will impact your student’s ability to attend future dances. Please discuss this with your student and have a plan in place.

I look forward to seeing many of you at this week’s Homecoming events. If you see me around, please stop and introduce yourself.
