Student ID Badges
Students will begin to receive ID badges starting on 1/21 with 11th & 12th graders. 9th and 10th grade students will receive ID badges on 1/24. Students will be required to wear the ID badges at all times on campus. The purpose for a “student ID badge” policy is to ensure each student is readily identified as a Pine Forest High School (PFHS) student and to identify and exclude those individuals who have no legitimate business on PFHS grounds during school hours and/or school activities.
Every student will be issued a Student ID badge. The student is required to wear the ID badge at all times during school hours and/or school activities. Failure to wear the badge will result in disciplinary action. ID badges will be used for admittance into games, dances, and other various school activities.
It is solely the responsibility of the student to account for the whereabouts of his/her student ID badge. Any lost or stolen badge should be immediately reported to the student’s homeroom teacher or front office. A replacement student ID badge will be issued at a cost of $5.00 through the front office. A replacement lanyard and badge clip will be issued at a cost of $1.00.
For more details, please read the entire Student ID Badge Policy.
Graduation Requirements - Updated
Please check out the attached links to find out the graduation requirements by cohort. Each student's graduation requirements is determined by the year in which the student entered ninth grade for the first time. The group of students that entered ninth grade together is called a cohort. Therefore, if a student is a first time ninth grader in the 2010-2011 school year, that student is in the 2011 cohort.
