 Bemis Staff and Student Identification Card Policy

As a component of our school security and safety procedures, we have purchased and issued lanyards to all students in order for them to wear their school identification cards throughout the school day.  The wearing of identification badges provides a professional setting and promotes College and Career Readiness for all students.  Many workplaces, as well as colleges require the wearing of identification badges as well.  Teaching and support staff have been wearing identification badges, while at school for many years.
