SPHS prom dress code

Items to keep in mind for prom dress code


South Panola High School will host its 2019 Junior/Senior prom on Saturday (April 13) from 6:30 p.m. to midnight at the high school.


As a reminder, please keep the following in mind when it comes to prom dress code:


  • Dresses may be backless, as long as they are not cut below the navel.

  • 2-piece dresses MUST overlap at the waist: meaning top MUST overlap with the skirt waistband.

  • Midriffs will not be exposed.  This includes both front and side.

  • With arms down at your side, if flesh touches flesh, the dress is inappropriate.

  • Dresses may not have a slit that exceeds fingertip length.

  • Dresses may not be cut below the bust line. 

  • Undergarments will not be visible. 

  • See-through apparel is not permitted.

  • Jackets or coats will not be used to cover up unacceptable attire.

Gentlemen, you are expected to wear formal attire. Formal prom attire may be classified as a tuxedo or suit. 

If you are bringing a date from another school, it is your responsibility to make your date aware of the SPHS dress code policy.  The criteria above will be strictly observed.


We hope to maintain the integrity and formality of this night by implementing this simple dress code; as such any students not appropriately dressed will be turned away at the door.
