Chaperones
We appreciate the many parents who would like to help make YACS Dances a success. We do not want to put our chaperones in the uncomfortable position of having to redirect or discipline our students. The role of the chaperone is to be a presence and to watch students, ensuring that their behavior is safe and appropriate. When a chaperone sees behavior that is unsafe or inappropriate, the chaperone will report this to a staff member who will take action to correct the behavior or remove the student from the dance. We thank our chaperones and want to support them so they will have a positive experience! If you would like to be a chaperone for the dance, please contact the front office.
