Mt. Hebron PTSA After-Prom FAQ
1. What is After-Prom?
A. After-Prom is a huge party put on by the PTSA after the Prom dance. For a low low price you get all-you-can-eat favorites like Qdoba, Rita’s, Chick-fil-A, Vocelli pizza, Krispy Kreme donuts, Cinnabon, a coffee bar, and more. There is so much to do – there are giant inflatables, a dodge ball tournament, Family Feud game, caricature artists, rock climbing wall, henna tattoos, and more. Then there are prizes – electronics like gaming systems, apple airpods, TV, wireless headphones & speakers, GoPro, fitbits, and incredible cash prizes.
2. Who can go?
A. Any Mt. Hebron junior or senior. You do NOT have to go to Prom to go to After-Prom. Guests who are not Mt. Hebron juniors or seniors MUST have attended the Prom dance as your guest to go to After-Prom.
3. What time do I have to get there?
A. You have to arrive within one hour of the time After-Prom begins. So if After-Prom starts at 11:00pm you must get there by 12:00am (midnight). You will not be allowed in after 12:00am.
4. Is it a lock-in? Can I leave whenever I want?
A. No, it is not a lock-in. Yes, you can leave whenever you want – but why would you want to?
5. Do I have to ride the bus from Prom to After-Prom?
A. No – the bus is optional and offered for your convenience. The bus costs an additional $5.
6. What do I wear to After-Prom? Can I change there?
A. You wear comfortable clothes to After-Prom, like a t-shirt and shorts, jeans, sweats, etc. There are locker rooms at the YMCA for changing. You may bring a lock to secure your items in a locker if you want - just remember to take all your things with you when you leave, and PTSA/YMCA are not responsible for items you leave in the locker room.
7. Do I need to bring my ID to After-Prom?
A. ID is only required at the door if you bring a guest from outside Hebron who signed for him or herself because he/she is over 18.
8. Is there anything I can’t bring in to After-Prom?
A. There are volunteers who will check bags at the entrance. You may not bring in any liquids – no water bottles, coffee cups, medication, pepper spray, contact solution, perfume, etc. including any other things you wouldn’t be allowed to bring to a school event. Anything the bag checkers find that you cannot bring in (unless it’s illegal stuff, which will be confiscated) will be held for you in a labeled bag which you can claim when you leave.
9. How do I get raffle tickets to win prizes?
A. All Hebron juniors and seniors receive 20 raffle tickets when they arrive, and an additional 20 tickets if they are still at After-Prom two hours later. Guests or Hebron freshmen/sophomores are not eligible to win raffle prizes and will not receive raffle tickets, but are eligible to win gift cards/other door prizes.
10. Who can win prizes?
A. There is a gift card drawing separate from the raffle prizes. ANYONE, including guests, gets a ticket for a chance to win a gift card or other prize at the Gift Card Drawing table. ONLY MT. HEBRON STUDENTS (any grade) may win the larger raffle prizes. The Gift Card Drawing is ongoing throughout the night. The Raffle Prizes are awarded at 2:30am, half an hour before the end of After-Prom, and you MUST BE PRESENT to win.
11. How do I get tickets to go to After-Prom?
A. Tickets will be sold online on the PTSA website around the time Prom tickets go on sale. If you buy your ticket online the waiver is built-in. Invited guests may buy their own ticket online. After-Prom tickets will also be sold in the cafeteria the week before Prom if you want to pay with cash or check, in which case you will need to turn in a hard copy signed waiver. Tickets MUST be purchased by the DAY BEFORE After-Prom. You MAY NOT buy tickets at the door. There is no physical ticket – your name will be on a list at check-in.
12. Is this a school event? Why do I need a signed waiver?
A. After-Prom is NOT a school event – it is put on by the PTSA. The PTSA insurance company requires us to make you sign the waiver. Since the Rock Wall is owned by the YMCA, they also require a waiver so you are covered by insurance. You CAN NOT buy a ticket without turning in signed waivers. If you are 18 yrs old you may sign your own waivers if you show ID.
13. Where can my parents or I find out more information about After-Prom?
A. All of this information plus waivers that may be printed is available on the PTSA website: https://mthebronptsa.com under the After-Prom tab.
