The first ID card is free. A charge of $5.00 will be made for replacement cards.
This card must be presented to school personnel upon request for identification.The badge must be worn around the neck and be visible. Before school, all students will enter the building using the cafeteria doors. Student badges are checked at this point of entry.
If the student forgets their badge at home, they must report to the foyer in the morning and will be issued a temporary badge.
Cost of a temporary badge is $1.00.
Student may purchase an additional badge for 5.00 to keep in their backpack in case they forget their badge at home.
