2021-2022 HS Prom Presentation Schedule

on October 10, 2021

Two years ago, Monroe-Woodbury High School began a new practice that we believe is beneficial to students and their families. In order for students to attend the Junior or Senior Prom, they are required to participate in one evening information session related to underage and binge drinking.  A parent or guardian is required to attend along with the students.

Even if your child does not plan on attending a prom this year, he or she may attend one information session and the prom requirement will be fulfilled for the remainder of his or her high school years.  For example, if a 9th grade student attends the presentation this year, he or she has met the requirement to attend proms through senior year.  If you have multiple children enrolled in the High School, you may all attend one presentation together to meet the requirement.  There is no need to attend separate presentations with each of your children.

As a school community, we care deeply about our young people and continuously engage in programs and initiatives that contribute to our students’ success, especially in the areas of health, social emotional wellness and safety. We know that it takes a partnership between the school district and our community to provide support, education and enriching opportunities that guide our children as they navigate life.

Social hosting goes hand in hand with underage drinking. While it may be an unfamiliar term, it is a topic that has come to the forefront in recent years in our county. Social hosting relates to underage individuals being provided alcohol.  County Executive Neuhaus created the Social Host Law in 2016, in addition to a Social Host Underage Drinking campaign.

The decision has been made to continue the presentations for the 2021-2022 school year virtual.   Through the collaboration with the Alcohol and Drug Abuse Council of Orange County the virtual presentation of If They Had Known has been created. This documentary program focuses on today’s party culture and the risks of recreationally mixing prescription drugs with alcohol. It is an honest and emotional account of what happened to Clay Soper that night spoken by the friends who were with him.  The story is truthful and alarming and has proven to connect with students in a modern way.

We have scheduled 17 opportunities for students and their parents to view the presentation.   These presentations will all be Google Meets.  If you have multiple high school students in your family, each student will need to register and sign into the meet individually.  Students must use their MW Google Email account to register and enter the meet.  Registration for each presentation will close 24 hours before the scheduled time.
