Dance Contract Download 

We are super excited that we are able to hold our Homecoming Dance on Saturday, October 16 from 6-10pm at the Air and Space Museum in Balboa Park (students will not be admitted after 7pm). The dance will be held in the outdoor pavilion, with additional outdoor seating on a patio overlooking downtown San Diego. 

District guidelines require masks to be worn properly, over the mouth and nose at all times. Social distancing requirements will also be enforced. Students who violate either of these guidelines will be removed from the dance without refund and parents will be called. 

If you have already purchased your Homecoming ticket, but feel you cannot abide by the policies set in place by the district, please see Ms. Littlefield in room 332 for a refund during the refund window, September 27 to October 8. Refunds will not be issued after this date as we will have already paid the venue and our vendors. 

Every student and guest must have a completed Dance Contract to attend the dance. Dance contracts are available starting September 27 in the ASB room and front office and are due no later than October 8th if you have already purchased your ticket. If you are purchasing your ticket between today and Oct 13 (last day to purchase) you will need your contract at time of purchase. 

Tickets are on sale in the Gear Shop on Fridays at lunch this week for $65 without an ASB card and $55 with an ASB card.

Tickets will be sold Monday-Wednesday the week of the dance (Oct 11-13) for $70 regardless of ASB card status. 

Remember, October 13 is the last day to purchase your ticket. You don’t want to miss this event in our beautiful venue, with a delicious dessert and beverage bar, photo booth and caricature artist.
