If you have an existing hotel reservation within our reserved block at the main prom hotel - Embassy Suites, Frisco - your reservation will be moved forward to the exact same days of the week as it is currently. That means, if you had a Friday check-in, you will still have a Friday check-in; and if you had a Saturday check-in, you will still have a Saturday check-in. If you find that you will need to change the number of days you are staying or cancel your reservation, please wait a few days to contact the hotel. The Embassy Suites general manager is having to keep a lot of plates spinning on his own right now while the hotel industry is taking a hard hit from this virus spread, but he has assured me that he will handle the changes for our whole group.
If you wish to try to get a room in our block, wait a few days, but try within the next 7-10 days to get into our group reservation. They have assured us that there are more rooms available right now for our weekend.
If you had already reserved at one of the overflow hotels - Home2Suites by Hilton, or Hampton Inn - please cancel that reservation if you do get a room at the Embassy Suites. You are also welcome to keep those reservations if you like. We will rebook the blocks at those two hotels for the new weekend and notify them of the postponement of the April 25th event. You may need to cancel with them personally if you did not book within our block.
None of the remaining dance lessons (March 21 and 30 and April 4 and 6) will be held on their original dates due to the gathering size restrictions in place at this time.
The dance lessons will be rescheduled once the stay-home orders have ended. We will notify everyone as soon as that happens. New dates will mean new registrations for the lessons are needed. Your old registrations will not carry forward.
Your previous song requests have been recorded. We will be accepting additional song requests through the link on the prom website starting tomorrow. You'll see the new deadlines listed there.
We are also instituting a new procedure on prom night for song requests. We will have a card you can complete and turn in at the information booth for any song requests to be made during prom.
You may still purchase the professional posed photography packages from now through June 15 on the Shop Prom page at the prom website. Pre-purchased packages can be redeemed by appointment on the afternoon of prom day from 1pm-4pm or throughout the event. Students may also purchase these during the event with cash, check or credit card. As always, there are also many opportunities in the ballroom and activity areas for candid photography shots that you can download for free from our photo page online.
We will extend the option on the Shop Prom page to order Timeless Tributes through June 15, 2020. Timeless Tributes are a unique prom-themed gift that is delivered to your student at prom. People who purchase a Timeless Tribute for their student have the opportunity to write a short, thoughtful note of encouragement or inspiration to the student receiving the gift. The Timeless Tributes are packaged specifically for the student, with the personalized note printed on themed paper and packaged beautifully with the gift item.
