The principal of Sylvania schools is planning a fun dance that will keep the students safe.

SYLVANIA, Ohio β€” Spring is an exciting time for high school seniors, and for some it means prom and the last dance at school.

Students at Southview Sylvania High School will celebrate their prom on Saturday, May 6th, while Northview will celebrate the following Saturday, May 13th.

When it comes to prom, graduation, or any party your teen attends, it’s important to talk to your kids about safety beforehand.

In accordance with American Academy of Pediatricsteenagers whose parents regularly talk to them about drugs and alcohol are 42% less likely to use these substances than kids whose parents don’t discuss these things.

To keep everyone safe, here are some helpful tips before heading to prom:

  • Always keep your cell phone with you and remember to keep it fully charged and check in with your family every now and then or as needed.
  • Remind your sports team that illegal behavior can mean the loss of scholarships or even college admissions.
  • Never leave your drink unattended or accept a drink from someone you don’t know.

The principal of Sylvania schools is planning a fun dance that will keep the students safe.

“It’s a wonderful time of year. It’s an especially exciting time for the Class of 2023 as they attend end-of-year programs, assemblies and celebrations,” said Dr. Veronica Motley, Sylvania Superintendent of Schools.

Sylvania Schools reminds students about responsibility and safety not only on weekends, but throughout the year. School safety is always a top priority. As always, we ask students when they “see something, say something.”

Not only does the school district make sure students stay safe, but so does the Sylvania City Police Department.

β€œIt’s a school event, but ultimately it’s up to parents to stay in touch with their kids and communicate with them. Make sure they know exactly where they’re going to be throughout the day, know their schedule, know who they’re going to see, what other friends they’re going to hang out with. Make sure they keep their phones with them and make sure they stay connected.”

Another helpful tip for students when they’re going to prom is to make sure your phone is fully charged so you can contact your family if needed.
