Questions?  Contact  

A couple of things you should be aware of:
  • Students should take their photo during their first Science class if they have more than one, but should not take more than one photo.
  • Students should be aware that referrals will be written for students that swap data cards and have their photo attached to another student's id number.  Students misrepresenting themselves as a senior by changing the grade level on the data card will also receive a referral.  
  • ID cards will be distributed within a few days of the photo date. 
  • IDs will be used to pay for food as well as to receive student devices. Students should safeguard their ids so that other students don't have access to their lunch account or device. 

Please email me at if you have any questions.   Thank you!
