Lake Forest High School Prom 2014 will be held on:
May 17, 2014
Marriott Chicago Downtown
540 North Michigan Avenue
Students are required to take the provided coach buses to and from Prom.
Project Safe Prom is a fundraising campaign which raises the monies necessary to pay for approximately 18-22 buses to safely transport over 800 students and chaperones to and from Prom.
In addition to promoting students' safety with a longstanding tradition of zero-tolerance for drug and alcohol, Lake Forest High School requires students to travel by bus, to and from prom. The Junior Class raises funds each year to cover the cost of these buses to promote a safe and enjoyable night for all and that's where you can help! Your donation will help make LFHS Prom 2014 another safe and memorable evening.

LFHS students began taking coach buses downtown in early 1980’s. Getting
students on the buses has turned into an "event" in
past years (around 1998), including some of the following:
- • An actual red carpet was put down in 200
• shelter prom-goers with umbrellas in case of rain
• There are different themes each year, decorated
accordingly from LFHS front doors to the actual venue
• Nearly 800 students attend the prom
and parents, community members, faculty and families all
watch the prom promenade from bleachers which are set up
on the front lawn
• Prom has been covered by local television station;
we also now make a DVD available for purchase for students
Project Safe Prom, introduced in 2002, focuses on raising
funds to support the use of bus transportation to and from
Prom. Not only current Lake Forest parents, but
also alumni parents and community members, have demonstrated
an impressive commitment to keeping our students safe. Additionally,
students from the junior class raise funds for this purpose. Our "red
carpet parade" is an even greater source of pride because
it is connected to a larger tradition of valuing our students
and appreciating our community.
