The Mahwah Township Public School ID Card is the official photo identification card for MHS students providing easy access to high school resources and a wealth of innovative technologies. Each student will receive an ID/FOB card in grade 9, at no cost, that will be used throughout their entire high school career (all 4 years). Students are required to carry their ID card with them everyday. The district provided ID card allows entrance into high school campus buildings, as well as the ability to print documents from FollowMePrint in the Media Learning Commons.
In addition, your Student ID bar code is on the back of your ID for scanning into the attendance office, guidance office, health office, Media Learning Commons, and selected social events.
The ID card is the property of Mahwah Township Public Schools and is non-transferable. Only the person pictured on the ID card is permitted to utilize the card and spend funds from their PaySchools Central Account. ID cards will be confiscated if presented by someone other than the cardholder or if the card is involved in inappropriate or illegal use. Fraudulent use of the card will result in disciplinary action.
Report lost ID cards to the Main Office immediately.
