As you know, safety and security for our students is top priority at Midlothian ISD. In the 2017-2018 school year, MISD implemented the SmartTag badging system to further protect our students who travel on a school bus. For this system to be successful we need the partnership and support of our parents. Over the past several months the number of students getting on and off the bus without their badge has increased significantly. In order to maximize the protection of our students, effective May 4, 2018 the following guidelines will be implemented for students without a badge:
- 1st instance – The bus driver will counsel the student.
- 2nd instance – MISD Transportation Department will e-mail the parent.
If a student has misplaced their badge they must report to their campus office and request a new badge at a cost of $5.00.
We thank you for your cooperation and support as we ensure the safety of our students at MISD.
