On Saturday, April 29 the Lafayette High School Prom will be located at the Ritz Carlton in St. Louis. Doors will be open at 6:30 p.m. and the dance will begin at 7 p.m. The dance will end at 10:30 p.m.

Before purchasing tickets, every student or couple must fill out a google form that provides details such as guest information, meal plans and method of payment. Also all fines and fees must be paid prior to purchasing the tickets.

According to the Junior Office, Lafayette is the only Rockwood School that does not require a permission form for guests attending from other schools. This makes the process less stressful for students planning to bring others that don’t attend Lafayette.

Junior Zach Naert is excited to bring a girl from Eureka. When asked what the process is like for bringing a date from a different school, “It’s really easy and pretty much the same. I just have to buy and purchase the tickets, but that’s it.” Naert said.

However, all guests must provide some form of ID to make sure they are under the age of 21.

The prom lines themselves were hectic. Students waited up to 30 minutes just to buy their tickets.

I’ve been waiting for a good 20 to 30 minutes. I tried at first lunch and couldn’t do it.’ So I’m going at it again, I’m waiting it out”

— Jonathan Solomon, senior

Prom lines were time-consuming, more so than previous years.

“Last year the system was so smooth and this year has been rough,” Solomon said.

Although the lines were complicated, the use of Google Forms helped the process along.

“I think they used the Google Forms to make it easier and painless for everyone and to help the lines. I think that they’re not messing around, which I appreciate because people want to get to lunch and all,” said Beth Burton, junior.

Prom lines typically are complicated and tiresome, but students really felt that this year. In fact, several students decided to sit and eat while waiting in line.

“I got to eat my lunch somehow, so I’m just sitting here in a chair in line. I’ve been waiting for about 20 minutes already,” Conner Keithly, senior said.

Many students who had waited in line were cut off and told to come back the next day to buy tickets, causing a general feeling of anger among the crowd.

Although purchasing prom tickets is never simple, students were frustrated with the wait this year.

The tickets are now sold out.
