SCHOOL ID CARDS

Students are provided with a Rees School ID at the beginning of the school year. Everyone including staff is required to wear their ID throughout the school day. Lost or damaged IDs must be immediately replaced. Teachers will notify parents if their child has lost their ID so that the $3.00 replacement fee is paid and a new ID is issued. Student IDs are also used to identify a child's lunch number and allow them to move faster through the lunch line.

EARBUDS AND HEADPHONES

All students are required to provide their own headphones or earbuds. These will be stored in a Zip-Loc bag on which the student's name will be written. The headphones will be used in the classrooms. Personal headphones will help to ensure each student's personal health.


Headphones or earbuds may be purchased at local retail, discount, or dollar stores. Any style will work as long as they have the 3.5mm (small) plug that will connect to a standard computer headphone jack. Intermediate grades may wish to consider headsets with a built-in mic, but this is not a requirement.

BUS SMART TAGS

  • Students enrolled for transportation services were provided a SMART tag ID.
  • A SMART tag ID badge is required each time the student enters and exits the bus.
  • Teachers will notify parents if their child has lost their SMART tag so that the $3.00 replacement fee is paid and a new ID is issued.
