MRHS ID Procedures

New for the 2019-2020 school year -each student’s ID is the key to the school and will act as a building access card. Similar to a house key, students will be able to enter the school building through designated exterior doors at pre-established times by scanning their school-issued student ID on the card reader. Students will receive their student ID during school picture days and will use them to access the building starting early in the school year.

Promoting a safe and secure learning environment is further strengthened and reinforced through a partnership with students, staff and families. Now that their student ID is their “school key” please help us in reinforcing the importance of having their student ID on them at all times when on school property (around their neck, or in their bag or wallet). As their “school key”, they will now need it to get into the building and must be able to present it if asked by staff at any time. Due to the new safety implications of student IDs, it is imperative that if they lose their student ID they need to report it to the office immediately. This way the card can be deactivated and they can be issued a new student ID. A free student ID will be issued to students upon enrollment. If students lose their student ID, they will be allowed two free replacement cards. The replacement fee after 2 lost cards will be $5.00.

In addition to being the “school key”, the Mountain Range High School student ID is a valuable tool permitting access to many opportunities including:

  • School bus transportation (for those qualified);

  • Free/reduced lunch privileges. Qualifying students will use their identification to access this benefit;

  • Student lunch account. Parents may deposit funds in a student’s lunch account via the district website. Access to these funds will be only with the student identification;

  • Admission to athletics and activities (such as dances)

  • Library book/material checkout

If students choose to wear their ID on a lanyard, Mountain Range High School is approved to allow students to wear ID’s on their own lanyard. They are not required to wear a school-issued lanyard. Personal lanyards must still follow the Mountain Range/Adams 12 Five Star Schools’ dress code policy. Lanyards which contain profanity, sexually suggestive language, or promote drugs, alcohol, tobacco, weapons, etc. are prohibited. A break-away lanyard is highly recommended.
