Late Night

Late Night is a decades old tradition at Wayland High School.  It is a fun celebration held in the WHS field house after prom that is designed to keep our students safe on Prom night.  The event is open to all WHS Seniors and prom goers, with the objective of keeping these students in one place and off the roads after Prom in order to keep them safe!  Senior parents plan and run the event, and underclass parents run Pre-Prom and chaperone the event.

Saturday, April 30 marks the return to Wayland of a time- honored high school tradition: the Prom!

The Class of 2022, who have lost so much to this pandemic, will finally get to celebrate together at the first Wayland Prom since 2019. We are hoping to bring back Late Night for the Class of 2022. It is a large undertaking in a short time, but we believe this tradition is important not only to the Class of 2022, who has led our High School through two years of pandemic challenges, but to all the classes who follow and will get to enjoy these traditions in the future.

Our goal is to raise $18,000, which will allow us to cover all of our event expenses so that these children can attend for free.

Below is information on donations to support the event, and registration (required!) for students who are attending.


This event is entirely funded by tax-deductible donations from WHS parents and local residents and businesses.  Please help us make Late Night 2022 a memorable event by making as generous a donation as possible.

You may reach the 2022 Late Night Chairs at for more information or to volunteer!  Please consider helping out this fun, substance-free event for our children.

Registering for the event:  Registration is required at for Late Night attendance. WHS Seniors are responsible for informing their guests to register. Also, PLEASE SIGN UP TO VOLUNTEER at for one of the many tasks involved in preparing for and running Pre-Prom and Late Night. In addition to senior parent volunteers, it is a time-honored tradition that underclass parents run Pre-Prom and chaperone Late Night so parents of students attending can enjoy this special day with their student. Underclass parents volunteer whether or not their sons/daughters are attending the Prom/Late Night. Next year when your student will be attending, underclass parents will step up for you!
