Student ID badges may not be defaced in any way. This was made clear to the students, multiple times, at the beginning of the year. Please check your child’s ID badge. If it is defaced and needs to be replaced, please consider having your Seahawk do some extra chores around the house to earn the $5 and learn a bit about responsibility. No student may participate in a special event or attend a field trip unless he or she has an id badge in good condition.
