ID Sweeps

We have seen an increase of students taking off their IDs in in the middle of the day. Remember they must be on and visible at all times. We will begin doing ID sweeps starting next week and assigning a detention for those that do not have their ID or a temporary ID on. We want to keep our campus as safe as possible and we need to be able to identify all students at all times. Thanks so much for your help to keep our students safe!
