This year homecoming coat check will be operated differently than in the past. Coat check is for your coat (if needed), and shoes (if you must, but you have to have alternate footwear). Coat check is NOT a personal station for you to visit regularly throughout the night to get money, gum, shoes, or any other personal items you may have checked in. Please choose your accessories wisely when dressing for homecoming, and keep the necessary objects on you throughout the night. You can check your items when you come in, and you can take them with you when you leave at night. We want homecoming to be an enjoyable experience for everyone involved, and your help in the new coat check system will make this happen.
