NHHS student tickets need to be purchased online and confirmed in person. Online Tickets should be purchased by February 22nd and confirmed before February 24th by following the steps below.

After purchasing the ticket online, the ticket needs to be printed and both student and parent need to sign the lower portion to acknowledge the Random Breathalyzer and Code of Conduct Policies referenced below.
In order to be eligible to buy a ticket for the Junior Prom the student must be in good academic standing and free from all outstanding obligations. Payments for obligations should be submitted to the Athletics Office during normal school hours by February 20th. Any student who earned less than 30 credits during the previous school year is not eligible to attend this dance based on the North Hunterdon-Voorhees Board of Education Policy 2430.
All tickets must be purchased and confirmed separately, even if students plan to attend as a couple. Each individual student must buy his/her own ticket and present an ID card during lunch mods February 23rd or 24th to confirm the ticket. Each student MUST have their own printed ticket with signatures. In the case where a student needs to bring a check to purchase a ticket, the student must see Mr. Forte in room 153. Please make checks out to NHHS Student Activities. We cannot accept cash!
North students inviting out-of-school guests must have the guest approved by our Dean of Students, Mrs. Skidmore, before purchasing the tickets. The OUT-OF-SCHOOL GUEST form is attached below. The out-of-school guest should purchase their ticket online, complete all the necessary information components and print out the designated Out-Of-School GUEST Ticket. Under the Student ID of the guest ticket, enter the NHHS Student ID as “Guest”. We recommend submitting the forms as soon as your child decides to attend the dance!
Students must present their printed ticket and student ID at the door for entry into the dance. If a student is bringing an out-of-school guest, the ID of the North student will also have the guest’s information. The guest simply needs some form of picture ID – an identification card from another school, a driver’s license, etc.
The doors will open at 6 pm for students to begin checking in. Students will not be admitted into the dance after 7 pm. This is a semi- formal event. No jeans or sneakers will be permitted. Gentlemen should wear dress pants and a dress shirt (Suits/tuxes are not necessary) and women may wear long or short dresses, or a skirt/slacks and dress shirt. If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Forte (email@example.com) or Mrs. Slowinski (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Junior Prom Guidelines 2015:
- You must bring your printed 2015 Junior Prom Ticket

- Once you are checked in, you are there for the whole event! If you leave the building for any reason, you may not return.

- Administration reserves the right to deny guest requests for any reason.
- Students are expected to follow all schools policies and procedures including dress code.
We expect our North Hunterdon High School students to conduct themselves at school-related functions in a manner that would make their parents and our community proud. We hope, as their parents do, that our students will present themselves always as persons of integrity. However, sometimes students ignore the law and school regulations by engaging in activities that are questionable or illegal. We hope to ensure that students understand the repercussions of their actions should they choose to use prohibited substances at a school-sponsored event.
According to New Jersey Statute 18A: 40A-12, school personnel have a legal obligation to report and test students who are suspected to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The following excerpt from the statute provides a basic explanation of why any students suspected of using illicit substances must undergo an alcohol and drug screening conducted under the direction of a physician as well as a physical examination.
Under this statute, school personnel cannot make any determination of the medical status of a student by testing via a swab or by breathalyzer.
“Whenever it shall appear to any teaching staff member, school nurse or other educational personnel of any public school in this State that a pupil may be under the influence of substances as defined pursuant to section 2 of this act, that teaching staff member, school nurse or other educational personnel shall report the matter as soon as possible to the school nurse or medical inspector as the case may be, or to his designee. The principal or his designee, shall immediately notify the parent or
guardian and the Superintendent of schools, if there be one, or the administrative principal and shall arrange for an immediate examination of the pupil by a doctor selected by the parent or guardian, or if that doctor is not immediately available, by the medical inspector, if he is available.” 18 A: 40A-12
Students with positive test results will be suspended for ten days and undergo a minimum of five counseling sessions with our Student Assistance Counselor (SAC). Other disciplinary measures may be imposed.
RANDOM BREATHALYZER TESTING
Random Breathalyzer Testing will be used at the Jr. Prom and is one facet of a comprehensive drug and alcohol prevention program. The purposes of random breathalyzer testing are to deter students from using alcohol and to identify students who are using so that families can take the appropriate steps. The approach to random breathalyzer testing is therapeutic. Students who test positive are suspended from participation in co- curricular activities for a minimum of two weeks as well as parking privileges. Students must participate in sessions with the Student Assistance Counselor.
The Junior Prom is one of the highlights of the student experience at North Hunterdon High School. I hope that many of our juniors will take advantage of this opportunity and have a safe, fun and memorable night with their peers.
