Guests

Guests of students can be RHS Freshman or Sophmores, as well as outside of RHS guests aged under 21. If your guest is a non RHS student, you must fill out the 'Prom Guest Form'. You can get this form from Mrs. Leenderts in the Assistant Principal's Office.  All forms need to be returned by Wednesday, May 15th for administrative approval. 

The Grand March

The Grand March will take place in the Rosemount High School Gym. There are two sessions, the first session student participants will be announced starting at 3:00 pm, and the second session students will be announced starting at 4:15 pm. Students must choose a Grand March time when their tickets are purchased. Students may also choose the Dance Only option if they do not want to participate in the Grand March.

Friends and family are invited to come and view the Grand March for free. All friends and family must enter the school through the PAC/East Door Entrance only! Doors will be open starting at 2:30 pm. 

Students participating in the Grand March will be allowed only to enter through the main doors. All students participating in the Grand March will require a ticket for entry. Your ticket reflects your specific Grand March time, so be sure to arrive within the window (see information above). Students will need to retain their ticket to enter the dance at McNamara later that night. 

The Grand March will begin with a short performance from select RHS students. Groups will cross the gym floor from right to left (when viewing the main gym floor) and each couple will be introduced as they cross over the middle of an elevated platform. Once students have been announced, they will be directed to the South Commons to meet with family/friends or leave RHS for dinner or additional group pictures on their own before arriving to McNamara for the dance at 7:30 pm. 

3:00 PM - First Session

4:15 PM  - Second Session

McNamara Parking Options

Parking Details:

McNamara has two adjacent parking ramps within a block of the venue. The University Ramp will be on event rate mode, meaning students will need to pay upon entry with a credit card ($10). Parking is charged per car, so we encourage students to carpool together to split the cost.

University Ave Ramp: (500 spots)

1926 University Ave. SE, Mpls, 55455

Washington Ave Ramp: (1300 spots)

501 Washington Ave. SE, Mpls 55455

Additional parking details can be found here. Be sure to investigate parking potions beforehand to be prepared for the night. Students that are being dropped off by a limo, bus, or parent, should be prepared to unload quickly at the main Oak Street address, which has a turnaround right at the front door. 

What to expect at the dance:


Once students have arrived at prom they can stay as long as they would like. 

Students that leave the venue will not be allowed to re-enter.
