What do I need to get into Prom? What is my ticket?
Student entry to Prom is through the South Patio in Union Station West to the right of the main entrance between 7:30-9:00pm. If you enter Union Station through a different entry point, you will have to exit through the front to get checked in at the South Patio. Look for the signs.
Doors close at 9:00pm. NO ONE WILL BE ADMITTED AFTER 9PM.
You will need your 2022-23 Pacifica ID Card (or studentvue with your picture) to be checked in electronically.
Only those students who purchased tickets and their guests will be on the prom list and will be admitted.
Guests must enter with the PHS student who bought their ticket.
After students/guests are checked in, they will receive a special red wristband.
Everyone must wear the wristband to have access to the prom areas.
The invitation card and the receipt are NOT a ticket. There are no ticket sales at Prom.
NOTE: If you gave your receipt or invitation to another student or switched guests and did not notify Mr. Castañón of those changes, those names NOT appearing on the Prom list will be denied entry.
Is there a security check at Prom? What is not allowed inside the venue?
