Students found to be in violation of the dress code will either have to change clothes immediately or be sent home.


Promposals/Flash Mobs

Over the past few years, Kennedy has seen an increase in both "flash mobs" and "promposals" during the break time. While these events are often non-intrusive and are at many times not meant to cause issues, there have been several of these events that have had negative effect on the school day. Both flash mobs and promposals can also serve as a distraction and take supervision away from areas, thus allowing opportunities for problems to develop in areas without supervision.

In an effort to have flash mobs affect supervision of students, JFK allows flashmobs only when approved by our administration and Activities Director. When organized and approved, Flash mobs can add excitment and bring attention to clubs, classes, and other student groups. It is the goal to make sure that we support all student groups planning to do this and make the experience for our students positive. 

"Promposals" are an emerging trend where a student organizes a very public and well thought out plan to ask another student to a dance or school event. While this is often flattering for some students who agree to the event, it has caused some students to come to school with concerns that they were embarassed by the attention or felt that they were pressured in front of the student body to give an answer. In addition, promposals take supevision resources from other areas of the school when large pockets of students suddenly crowd into a particular area. For this reason, "Promposals" are to be done outside of the school day only.
