Emergency Management, Safety & Security

 

Blue Badge Distribution Process

During the 2012-2013 school year, the Office of Emergency Management, Safety & Security began distributing the new blue MPS badge design. The first phase of the distribution began in the fall with badges printed by Lifetouch with the previous year photos from school sites. The next phase will be to distribute to the remaining school site staff from the school site photos taken during the 2012-2013 school year. Finally, arrangements will be made at the remaining administrative sites to take photos and print new blue badges. This process will continue throughout the 2012-2013 school year.
