Lanyards and School ID’s
Lanyards and the current school year school ID must be worn at all times. Students are issued violations if they fail to have either item. Students found taking other students lanyards will be issued a detention. Students who are found frequently wearing another houses lanyard will be issued detentions, this is a form of deception as we use House Identity for a number of things throughout the year.

Students are not permitted to alter their lanyards or ID’s with stickers or paint. Students are permitted to wear appropriate pins on their lanyards, but not in excess.

Students who arrive at school out of uniform on jeans day, or any other day, will be asked to call home and resolve the uniform issue.

All class time missed as a result of being sent home will be considered an unexcused absence.
