PHOTO ID PROCEDURES
Use your BFS Photo ID from the previous school year (students, parents, faculty/staff, and affiliates).
All new parents and returning parents who need a new or replacement photo ID need to fill out a request form
by clicking the appropriate link below:
What is BFS Policy on Parent/Guardian and Affiliate Photo ID cards?
All parents/guardians and all those who regularly come to school (caregivers, grandparents, etc. – for ID purposes known as Affiliates) must have a Brooklyn Friends School photo ID card in order to access the building(s) and pass through our security system. All BFS families and affiliates need to use their Photo IDs upon arriving and leaving the building(s).
ARE YOU A RETURNING PARENT?
Use your current BFS Photo ID in 2018-19.
There is no need to read further unless you have an affiliate associated with your household.(see next paragraph) Should your card be lost or damaged and you need a replacement go to the link at the top of this page and click on Parent/Guardian to request a replacement card, using your household ID number.
Returning affiliates may use their current ID card, but they need parental authorization each academic year for their cards to be re-activated. Go to the link on the top of this page, click on Affiliate and follow the instructions. Completing this form reactivates the Affiliate’s Photo ID.
For returning parents with Affiliates new to BFS, go to the link on the top of this page, click on Affiliate and follow the instructions; please upload a photo of the Affiliate (link comes up when you click that you are ‘requesting a card for a new Affiliate’).
