  • School ID Badge Requirements

    Scholar Identification Badges

    Scholars are provided an identification (ID) badge at the beginning of the school year. Scholars are to keep these IDs for the remainder of the year. ID badges MUST be worn visibly around the neck as long as scholars are in the building. IDs are necessary for navigating various parts of the building and for accessing special activities and events. Scholars are not permitted to exchange or loan their ID badges to other scholars. Scholars without IDs will be required to obtain a replacement identification card through Security. Parents/Legal guardians are highly encouraged to communicate to their scholars the importance of making it a routine to store their ID badges in their purses, bookbags, etc. when they arrive home.


    There are no exceptions. This policy is non-negotiable.
