Daily Announcements 10/09/19

Great news everyone! We’ll be passing out your new IDs during Advisory Thursday. Please be sure to have the ID and lanyard you were given at the beginning of the year with you on Thursday. Everyone should have their new photo ID by Friday.

Starting Monday, you will be required to wear your school ID at all times during the school day. You’ll need to show your ID to enter the building after the bell rings, and your teachers will be checking for your ID cards in class.

 1. All students must wear their I.D. badge on a lanyard around their neck; the I.D. may not be attached to backpack and must be visible at all times they are in the building. Exceptions: during athletics/PE, during band/orchestra, while participating in a lab if the I.D. badge will be in the way or cause a hazard. At the end of class (or end of the lab), students must put the I.D. badge on before leaving the class.

 2. The I.D. badge must remain in it’s original condition (no stickers, no markers, etc.).

 3. Students may wear their own lanyard as long as it’s school-appropriate. They are not required to wear the Forestwood lanyard provided by the school.

 4. Students must wear their own I.D. badge, facing forward with the name and photo visible.

 5. Students may not trade or give away badges.

 6. Students must wear the current year I.D. badge. The previous year badge may be used as a replacement in the event that the current I.D. badge is forgotten at home. This should not extend beyond a few days. If the current year I.D. badge is lost, the student must purchase a replacement (cost is $3). Replacement lanyards may be purchased for $1.

Falcons, as many of you have probably heard on the news, the Houston area was hit very hard with the latest storm, Imelda. Splendora ISD in the Houston area has over 218 kids that were homeless after Hurrican Harvey. Imelda hit their community even harder, and they have yet to calculate the new number of homeless children due to this storm. 60% of the families in this district found their homes underwater. 

NJHS and Cheer are teaming up for their service project this year. We will be collecting toiletry items, hygiene supplies and home cleaning supplies in an effort to help Splendora ISD help their families. Please bring your supplies and place them in the boxes set up in the front foyer. From one district to another, let's do our part to show kindness.
