Jr. Prom is On: Test to Dance

Dear Parents,

Hillcrest High School Jr. Prom

March 13th, 2021

Jr. Prom is on and its FREE! In order to facilitate this dance, Hillcrest High School has made it a TEST to DANCE event. This means every single student who wants to go to the dance will be required to be tested for COVID-19 on March 12th, 2021 (More information below). In order for Hillcrest to test you for COVID, you will need to complete the authorization form on RedCap. Some of you may have already done this and will not need to register again. Anyone who is not registered cannot be tested, and in turn, cannot attend the dance.  We will be holding the dance in two separate locations at Hillcrest High: The Stem Building and the Aux Gym. Both locations will have a DJ. We are only allowing 500 students per venue (1k total) and the sign-up for each venue is first come first serve. This dance is reserved for Juniors/Seniors only. There are 2 exceptions to this rule. 1. Your date is an underclassman or 2. you graduated within the last year and are coming with a current Hillcrest High School student. Regardless, ALL participants will be required to be tested. PLEASE READ ALL THE INFORMATION BELOW…

  • If you have not registered on RedCap (Covid Test Authorization Form), you need to do so now. It only takes a few minutes, but you must complete this form before the testing day on March 12th, 2021. The link below will take you to the form. AGAIN… anyone who plans on attending the dance must have this form complete and must be tested for COVID.

  • The next step in this process is to sign-up. Below, you will see you have two locations to choose from for the dance. The Stem Building and the Aux Gym. You need to make sure you are signing up with your date/friends if you want to be in the same location with them. We will not allow any switching of locations during the event and we will not be allowing you to swap your spots. Once you sign up that is final, so plan ahead. Once the 500 sign-ups have been filled, that location will long longer be available for sign up. If you are planning on bringing a date from another school, they will need to sign-up and put what school they are from in the “My Comments” section. This is the same process for a student who graduated last year. Those coming with students who are from another school or who are graduated will still be required to registered on Redcap, get tested for COVID-19 on March 12th, and bring their ID with them. If they do not, they will not be allowed in the dance. If you sign-up in both locations, put silly names ,or add inappropriate names, it will be deleted immediately.

Sign Up Below!!

  • TESTING INFORMATION: We will be holding our Testing Event on March 12th, 2021. To make this easier, we will be breaking the testing up by the location you chose for the dance. If you signed up for the Aux Gym location, you will need to report at 7:15am to the Main Gym at Hillcrest High. If you signed up for the Stem Building location, you will need to report at 9:30am at the Main Gym at Hillcrest. Please arrive at the time listed. This will help us be more efficient in our testing as well as get you out quicker. Once your test is complete, you will be given a wrist band that correlates with your dance location. DO NOT take that band off. It will be your ticket into the dance the following night. If for some reason you cannot make the March 12th testing day or your assigned time, please email lyndee.mckay@canyonsdistrict.org with your concern and we will make a plan.
  • When you come to the dance, we will check you in and then direct you to your location. Thank you for being understanding of the safety protocols.
