If you are bringing a date from outside our school you need to come get a form from outside Mrs. Knox's room. This form states that the student you are a trying to bring is not a bad apple and would not cause a ruckus for us at the dance. The school that they attend must sign and fax the form back to us. Forms will not be accepted from students. Inviting someone from our school is a much simpler option.
