ID Badge

  • The district provides new staff with an identification badge and lanyard.  On school picture day, staff are also photographed and an ID badge is provided from the picture vendor.  School employees are expected to wear their identification badge during hours of school operation and at special events.  Substitutes, volunteers obtain badges in their building offices to wear when they are present at school sites during hours of operation. 

    Anyone present in the buildings during the school day that is not identified with either an employee badge, visitor badge, or vendor badge should be asked to report to the office to obtain necessary identification. 

    If you have lost or would need a new ID badge please send an email to the HR office at : wanouspaula@rockford.k12.mn.us
