Homecoming Dress Check Information

Warrior Parents and Students –

This year Warrior ladies will be required to have their homecoming dress approved prior to the dance in order to be permitted to attend. Below is a list of expectations, dates, and procedures we will be following for dress checks this year. 

Please read this carefully so that you are prepared to have your dress checked.


Prior to Dress Check Dates: 

  • Ladies will be required to sign up for a date and time to have their dresses checked. The sign up sheet will be located on the outside of Mrs. Hunt’s classroom door, C-307. First come, first served. Ladies without appointments will not be able to have their dresses checked that day.

On Dress Check Day: 

  • Ladies will bring their dresses to Mrs. Hunt’s room, C-307, in the morning before first period begins. The dresses will be stored in Mrs. Hunt’s room during school hours and each dress will be labeled with the student’s name.
  • After school ladies will go and change into their dresses in a predetermined room. Please make sure that you are wear the same height of shoes and undergarments that you plan to wear with your dress on homecoming night.
  • The dress check committee will check each student’s dress based on the DCHS Formal Dress Guidelines (listed below). If the dress does not meet the approved standards ladies will be required to find another dress or make alterations to their current dress.
  • There will be a final dress check for ladies who need to have their dresses checked for a second time ONLY on Thursday, September 22nd from 3:15-4:30 PM. Alterations will be checked at this time to ensure that the dress is approved for homecoming.
