Dances are held throughout the year, sponsored by Rustco and RAC. Dress varies with the theme for the dance. Students may be allowed to bring one guest up to a designated maximum number. This guest must be presigned in before noon on the day of the dance by the Vice-Principal. The guest list will be kept at the door and the RCI student and guest must arrive together. The guest will be asked to present a TDSB student photo ID card that will be returned at the conclusion of the dance. The RCI student is responsible for the guest's behaviour. Guest passes will not be sold at the door. Dances usually start at 7:00 pm and end at 11:00 pm. No one will be admitted after 9:00 pm unless they obtained special permission earlier in the day from the Vice-Principal. No one leaving the dance will be readmitted. Access to lockers will not be permitted. A coat-check area near the front door will be used; coats and bags MUST be checked. Students who attend dances will be asked to participate in a search of their person and belongings by authorized personnel at the door. Girls’ purses will be included. Any student found with alcohol or drugs will not be admitted to the dance. Any student smelling of alcohol, drugs or acting as if their judgement is impaired will be refused admittance. No refund of ticket will be provided in these circumstances. If a student is found intoxicated or in possession of controlled substances inside the dance, his/her parents will be notified to come and pick up the student. The student will be suspended from school and excluded from all remaining dances. ILLNESS, INJURY OR EMERGENCY If a student becomes ill or is injured at school, he or she should report to the main office and parents will be notified by phone. For this reason, it is very important that a parent emergency number be on file at the school. In the event the parents cannot be reached, the school will take appropriate action deemed necessary to protect and assist the student in question. Please ensure that all phone numbers or address changes are recorded with the office staff so computer records are correct.
