we have ID cards at our school, and they give them out to you every year. i didnt get mine this year, though, but i have mine from last year. they
really mean nothing, its just a picture of you, your first and last name, and your ID number. they dont help you pay for your lunch, check out a
library book, or get into the school. ive never had to pay for one, so im assuming they are paid for through tax money, and seeing as they are so
useless, its just a waste.
but, the overall strictness has increased in school since my freshman year, no hats, no mp3s, and no cell phones, to name a few. usually, as
punishment, your forbidden item is confiscated, and has to be picked up by a parent at the end of the day. sometimes i think that the administration
is more worried about things like cell phones rather than the large amounts of drugs that come into school everyday.
as far as tardies at my school, you get 2 'free' ones, the third is an after school detention. the fourth is a longer detention, the fifth is a
friday school from 2:45-5:30, the sixth is a 1-3 day suspesion, and the seventh is a loss of credit from whatever class you have been tardy to.
