December 1, 2005

Americus--More than 200 Americus-Sumter County High School students were delayed in going to classes this morning, because they were not wearing their school ID cards.

The students were notified a month in advance that December first would be the day that all students must have their ID cards visible. Administrators say that the ID cards play a big role when it comes to campus security.

"Were just trying to make it a good sound, and safe environment for the child to get an education and we hope they will support us on this," said Principal Tony Overstreet.

The ID cards are also used for checking out books, and eliminating slow lunch lines. Students who did not have their cards today, were issued new ones and then returned to class.
