Procedures/Enforcement for Teachers and Staff
- All teachers will check to make sure students have ID badges and should not let students into their room without a badge.
- Students without a badge during the first period of the day will need to go to the main office to purchase a new ID for $5 or receive a temporary ID for the day.
- Students will be allowed 1 free temporary ID (1 each semester) before being required to purchase a new one.
- Once students have used their 1 free pass they will need to purchase replacement ID for $5.
- Replacement ID’s and lanyards may be purchased in the library or the main office before school, during lunch, and after school. ID replacements cost $5. Lanyard replacements cost $2.
- If students get swept or sent to the office and must use their “free pass”, an email will go home to remind the parent that students must have their ID at all times and that they will need to purchase a new ID badge if it has been lost.
- If the student does not have their ID for a 2nd time, they will be given the opportunity to purchase one in the library or main office. If they are not able to purchase one, they will be taken to ISS for repeated failure to follow directions.
