• General Information

    PHS Class of 2021 Parents & Students:

    The Junior Class is pleased to announce Senior Prom 2021 on Saturday, May 8, 2021 at the Belvedere Events & Banquets in Elk Grove Village.

    As a result of the current State of Illinois mitigation guidelines, Senior Prom will look different this year.  The following will be adhered to during this event:

    • We will be conducting two waves of prom to meet State of Illinois mitigation capacity guidelines and will limit each wave to no more than 250 people. The Wave 1 seating will take place from 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm and the Wave 2 seating will be from 8:30 pm – 11:00 pm.
    • Tables are limited to 6 students maximum.
    • Please note that current guidelines do not allow for dancing and the Prom will consist of a formal dinner and entertainment in each wave.  Students will remain at their table for the evening.
    • All attendees must complete the Daily Wellness Screener and have their temperature taken upon arrival.
    • Social distancing and safety protocols will be followed, including wearing a mask when not eating dinner.

    Additionally, students and parents should note the following important details related to this event:

    • This is a PHS Senior Prom event.  Semi-formal or formal attire is recommended.
    • Seniors have the opportunity to invite one guest.  All guests must be under 20 years of age or a currently enrolled high school student.
    • All attendees must present a current picture ID at the door and have it available all evening on request. 

    As you know, the State of Illinois may change the mitigation guidelines between now and the Prom date.  As the guidelines change, District 211 and the Belvedere will adjust the event based upon the current guidelines.
