Finding the Best School Formal Venues

Inform the parents about the party.

The parents of your teenagers need to understand that their children cannot drink when they come to the school formal.  Impress that very strongly upon the parents.

Collect all keys. 

If you have students that are driving themselves to the school formal, make it mandatory for them to leave their keys with you. It will help you to keep an eye on which students are present and which have left, and you can prevent anyone from driving should they manage to sneak a drink.

Prowl the venue beforehand.

When you decide on the location for the party, take a few minutes to walk the area and scout out locations where things could be hidden. Keep an eye out for any dark corners, and definitely look for doors that could lead to locations where your students shouldn’t be during the party. Hosting Responsible School Formals and Events

Have a good staff of chaperones.

The party planners can help you to keep an eye on your students, but you’ll need to bring your own army of chaperones to ensure that there is no drinking going on. Make sure that they are always roving and keeping an eye on the hidden places you have scouted.

Be visible.

Make sure that at least one or two adults are visible at all times. It may not thoroughly discourage all of your students from drinking. But at least the more timid ones will find it harder to sneak off.

Keep them in the hall.

Do not allow the students to leave the venue where the party is being held. No one should be allowed to go to the parking lot. As it’s likely that there is alcohol in someone’s car.

Be ready to deal with troublemakers.

No matter how hard you try to prevent it. Be prepared to deal with those students, usually with a staff of security to escort them from the premises. You may even want to have a few police officers standing by in case things get rowdy.
