Dear Alcott Families, 

The Alcott College Prep High School Homecoming Dance is scheduled for 6:00 – 9:30pm on Friday, October 22, 2021 on the picturesque patio of the Humboldt Park Boathouse, located at 1301 N. Humboldt Boulevard. The theme chosen by our students this year is “Hollywood Red Carpet.” 

We are all excited to host this event safely, and we want you to know that our students’ safety is our top priority. CPS district-wide COVID-19 guidance requires that masks be worn at all times and that all school events over 100 people be held outside. Schools must also develop a clear protocol to ensure student safety during the ongoing pandemic at such events. Therefore, please note that for students to purchase a $10 ticket they must also provide: 

1) Proof of a COVID-19 vaccine OR 

2) Proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 7 days of the event 

For students with proof of vaccination they must bring their vaccination card, or a picture on their phone, to Nurse Foster in Room 102B between the dates of Monday, October 11 and Wednesday, October 20, 2021. Ticket sales will stop after October 20, 2021. No tickets will be sold at the door. 

For students who would like to be tested, free COVID-19 testing will be available at Alcott on Friday, October 15, 2021. Please follow this link to provide consent for your student to be tested and have the results sent to you: https://home.color.com/covid/sign-up/start?partner=tf-alc-610524-students. 

Students may also get tested at an outside testing location on or after October 15, 2021, as long as proof of their negative results can be provided to the Nurse by the last day of ticket sales, Wednesday, October 20, 2021. 

Regarding dress code and additional safety measures, please remember that this is a school function and students should dress warmly and appropriately and follow these stipulations: 

● Dress to impress! Please wear classy and comfortable clothing. Hopefully you will be on the dance floor most of the evening and we want you to be comfortable. 

● No revealing clothing; dresses and skirts need to be fingertip length, not extremely short, and no exposed undergarments from pants that are not secured at the waist. 

● No explicit logos or clothing that displays contraband, hateful slogans, or sexual content will be permitted, and ball caps will be allowed. 

● All bags and students will be searched before entering. 

● All guests must follow the same COVID-19 protocols and complete a guest form available in the Alcott main office. 

● No guests over age 19 will be permitted to attend.
