Guest passes must be picked up at the student store and fully completed and approved before purchasing a guest ticket. No guest tickets will be sold at the door.
Every student, either Del Mar or guest, needs a valid ID to get into the dance. If your Del Mar student needs a replacement ID, they can purchase one for $5 at the student store. This needs to be done before the dance.

Drop off for the dance should happen on Del Mar Ave, at the date near room 16. No other gates will be open. Students can also drive and park in the student parking lot. Pickup should happen promptly at 10:00 on Del Mar Ave. No students can be picked up in the back parking lot.

Last but not least, I wanted to share voting information that was sent earlier from the Santa Clara County Office of Education. You can see the full message below.
Due to the pandemic, you may have concerns regarding the November 3rd election. Registering to vote and casting your vote may appear a bit overwhelming. However, during this upcoming election it is actually easier to do both. If you have not yet registered to vote or would like to verify the status of your registration, please visit the California Voter Registration website, at: registertovote.ca.gov. Please note the deadline to register to vote is Oct 19, 2020, 15 days before Election Day on Nov 3, 2020. Anyone who is registered to vote will receive a ballot mailed to them automatically. Completed ballots can be returned in the free postage-paid envelope that is provided or can be placed in one of 98 conveniently located drop-boxes throughout the county.
The Registrar of Voters Office will also be open for early voting beginning on October 5, 2020 through Election Day - access the office online, at: www.sccgov.org/sites/rov/Pages/Registrar-of-Voters.aspx. Voters who prefer to vote in person can still do so at any of the more than 100 Vote Centers that will be open throughout Santa Clara County starting October 31, 2020.
Adhering to COVID-19 protocols, the Vote Centers will offer sanitary, in-person options for a full spectrum of services including language and accessibility assistance. For more information visit sccvote.org/voterschoice or call 866-430-VOTE (8683). A few dates to keep in mind:
- Early voting starts at The Registrar of Voters Office on Oct 5, 2020
- Vote Centers open Oct 31, 2020
- Election day Nov 3, 2020
Have an amazing weekend everyone,
