New Card Reader System

We will be rolling out our Card Reader System for all students on October 13, 2014.

 This system will enable us to better keep track of students riding busses and greatly improve movement through the cafeteria lines.

To insure the success of this program:

 ·       All students will be issued a Smart Card containing their student identification number and a lanyard to fasten it and their student ID cards to.  

 ·       Students must carry their Smart Cards with them to the Cafeteria if they are going through the breakfast or lunch lines.   Those who do not have Smart Cards to scan will need to go the back of the line because cashiers will need to deal with them individually. 

 ·       Students must have their Smart Cards with them to ride the bus.  If the students does not have the Smart Card after three reminders, they will lose their bus riding privileges.

 ·       There is no charge for the first Smart Card.  Students with lost cards or cards which are defaced or abused and are unusable will be charged $10.00 for a replacement card.

 ·       Teachers in all grades are requested to assist with this program by monitoring students’ Smart Cards and IDs and making sure they have them before going to the cafeteria and riding the bus.

The Fun Fest will be held at the K-8 Building for all students and the High School building for Middle and High School students.  The admission wrist band will be good at both schools. 

The Fall Raffle will be held at the Fun Fest in the K-8 Building at 7:00 p.m. in the Front Lobby.  You do not need to be present to win, but we hope to see you there!
