School ID´s can be a hassle to some people, but there are upsides and we're here to tell you what they are.
1. Safety Reasons
Student ID´s allow people to know who attend Wethersfield High School, they allow them to feel safe since there aren't any unknown intruders. If someone isn't wearing an ID it is assumed that they don't attend that certain school, yes this may not always be the case but most of the time it is. Staff and other students should be allowed to question whoever does this.
2. You get to know people
You ever want to know who some people are but you´re afraid to ask them because you don´t want to offend them? Wethersfield High School and many other schools help out with this by including the names on the ID´s. In WHS you're also able to see the grade level depending on the color on the ID, green is freshmen, red is sophomores, yellow is juniors, and dark blue is for seniors.
3. You have to get used to them
Many careers require people to wear ID´s once you get a job there or visit the building. You can object, but there isn't any point because everyone would be wearing them. An ID will allow access in and out of the building with no problems and WHS became very strict about this, this year.
4. Some students have different opinions
Current senior, Kailey Guancha feels that, ¨Student ID´s are unnecessary because many situations that make people want ID´s are because of the students at that school.¨ Although another senior, Morgan Pacheco has totally different views and stated, ¨They keep us safe and their intentions are good, but sometimes they take it too seriously when they don't allow people they know go to the school into the building without an ID or at least temporary one.¨
Whether we like it or not, it is our best interest in safety to wear them. Wear your ID’s today!
