We’ve heard it for years, students don’t enjoy wearing their ID’s. However, there are SO many good reasons to wear them, and the whole system has been really well thought out!
The #1 reason why the ID’s are important because they provide safety. They show staff and others that you are a student at WHS. This is to ensure that you are not an intruder and to ensure that everyone at WHS feels safe. If you aren’t wearing your ID, then sometimes you might not be recognized as a WHS student. Now this is not always the case, but sometimes it is, which is why it is better if you just have your ID around your neck.
Of course, the IDs are important because they show who you are and your name. This makes it so that we could get to know each other better. It also makes it easier to get to know people’s names if you are afraid to ask them yourself. You could just carefully look at their IDs and see their names on them. The WHS ID’s are also helpful with knowing what grades the students are in by the color of it. The yellow ID’s are the freshmen, the red ID’s are the sophomores, the green ID’s are juniors, and the dark blue ID’s are seniors.
The most important reason why the WHS ID’s are important because they are like passes that give you access to the building. You would need them if you are going to the bathroom, the media center, or to the office. This would also help students in the future, since some jobs and careers require that you have your IDs on at all times. Especially if there are some areas that require your ID to access. This is a life lesson for students at WHS, so to be sure that we get to understand how the IDs work.
So now you see why IDs are important, so keep wearing them!
