Each day before you send your child to school, we are asking you to take part in a “screening” process for your child. This screening is for the protection of your child, their friends at school and our dedicated UCS team.

Bemis Student Photo ID Cards

Ensuring the safety and security for all students and staff is our top priority each day. In an effort to enhance our current security procedures, the wearing of photo identification cards, (referred to herein as “ID cards”), provides a professional setting and promotes College and Career Readiness for all students. The use of ID cards is required at college, university campuses, and in the workplace. Identification of staff and students is an important component of the Junior High School safety plan and cannot be compromised.
