Wayland High School’s junior prom will be held at the Hyatt Regency Cambridge from 7 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. on Saturday, May 18.

Prom tickets were sold from April 8 to 12 during lunch for $115 each. The tickets are non-refundable and include the cost of transportation. All prom-goers will ride a school-sponsored coach bus to and from WHS and the hotel. The vehicles will be provided by the Crystal Transport Company.

WHS Principal Allyson Mizoguchi sent a letter to students attending prom as well as their guardians on Monday, March 13. Mizoguchi addressed information regarding safety precautions, pre-prom gatherings and Late Night.

Since prom is an event hosted by WHS, there are expectations and precautions that will be implemented that day. As students arrive at the venue, they are required to do a breathalyzer test in a private setting. If any student is found under the influence or in possession of substances during prom, their guardian will be called and asked to pick the student up. It will later be decided what school disciplinary action the student will receive under the student handbook. Large bags will not be welcomed at the prom, but small handbags will be allowed. These bags can be searched at the hotel.

Junior Venezia Sebastianelli will be hosting pre-prom photos from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. before the orange carpet takes place at 4 p.m.. These two functions are not sponsored by WHS but give an opportunity for photographs and conversations before the students leave for Boston. After the orange carpet, the coach buses will begin their drive to Boston around 6 p.m..

Once students arrive back from Boston, the students who registered will have the option to attend Late Night, which will commence inside WHS’s field house from 11 p.m. to 1:30 a.m.. This event is free, organized by parents and adult-chaperoned. It is also fully funded by family and business donations. There will be a variety of games and food offered to students who registered to attend Late Night.

“I truly share in the excitement that our Class of 2025 feels for this special tradition,” Mizoguchi wrote. “I know that we will all join together to make this a safe, positive and memorable night.”
