School Dances now with Academic Expectations
  • Before students can purchase Prom tickets they must have passing grades or demonstrate a commitment to improving failing grades.
  • School dances are held from 8:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. in compliance with the Hennepin County Curfew. Students are not allowed to leave the dance and re-enter.
** The following are requirements and guidelines for bringing an outside guest to the following Kennedy High School dances; Sadie Hawkins and Prom.
  • Each student may bring one pre-approved guest.
  • No guest will be admitted without prior approval, even with a paid dance ticket.
  • Guests must present a valid school ID or photo ID to the chaperone prior to gaining entry into the dance.
  • Guest age limit is 19 years old or younger for Sadie Hawkins and 20 years old for Prom.
  • Kennedy students are responsible for their guest.  If their guest is asked to leave the dance for any reason, the Kennedy student will also need to leave.
Academic Lettering Policy
There has been a change to academic lettering procedures. There is no longer an application process for academic lettering. Students will receive a letter in the mail if a student qualifies for academic lettering. This will be determined at the end of each year. At the end of this academic year, letters will be awarded only to seniors in the spring. Ninth, 10th, and 11th graders will receive their academic letters next fall (based on previous academic year's grades). Next year academic lettering will be open for 9-11 graders only, with academic letters being presented at the end of the year.
