We Care - Know The Rules
The School Board of Broward County, Florida (SBBC) consists of nine elected School Board Members who serve four-year terms. Two of the School Board Members are elected “at large” by all of the electors in Broward County. The other seven School Board Members are elected from seven school board member residence areas. The School Board Members, along with the Superintendent, oversee the sixth-largest District in the nation. The SBBC implements policies that govern ethical, fiduciary, and scholastic mandates, protocols, and procedures for the District's schools, offices, and departments subject to any applicable federal, state, or local laws. The SBBC answers to the residents and taxpayers of Broward County in an ethical, open, and transparent manner.
A school principal may supplement District policies by outlining rules specific to the school such as uniform colors, cell phone usage areas, and drop off/pick up times. However, school rules are limited in scope and do not supersede school district policies.
Student ID Badge Policy
STUDENT IDENTIFICATION BADGE POLICY
STUDENTS ARE EXPECTED TO WEAR THEIR ID BADGES AT ALL TIMES
- Student ID badges must be visible and not in book bags, pockets or under clothing.
- Student ID badges must be replaced immediately when lost, damaged beyond recognition, or unavailable during the school day.
- If a student loses/forgets/breaks their ID badge, a replacement ID badge will be printed. After the third replacement ID, each additional replacement will cost $5.00. This charge will be recorded as an obligation in the student’s records until the amount is paid. Obligations can be paid in person or online, https://osp.osmsinc.com/BrowardFL/
- When a replacement is required, students must report to the Media Center in the morning, before school, to receive a temporary ID badge. They will receive their printed replacement later that day.
Dear Wildcat Family,
In our continuous efforts to ensure the safety and security of all students, staff and visitors at Forest Glen Middle School, we are requiring all students and staff to wear identification (ID) badges at all times while on campus. ID badges and lanyards have been issued to all students free of charge.
We will continue to require all visitors to check in with the Raptor System at the front desk. All visitors must wear the temporary ID badge provided to them throughout the duration of their visit.
Safety is our first priority, and we must rely on everyone’s cooperation so that we may continue to provide the best educational experience for our students.
Thank you in advance for your continued support with this and all other matters at Forest Glen Middle School. If you should have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the school at (754) 322-3400.

Be a Broward Buddy, Report a Tip!
All visitors must park in the designated visitor parking spaces. Please do not park in spaces designated for faculty and staff or in the bus loop.
Students must arrive at school on time every day.
Students arriving after 9:15 am will be considered tardy. If students arrive after 9:20 am, the student will need to obtain a pass from the Single Point of Entry office, which is located at the entrance to the school, to be admittted to class.
All students are expected to remain in school for the entire school day. No students will be dismissed 30 minutes prior to the last bell for safety reasons.
Code Red Drills
Code Red Drills have been mandated for all schools by the State of Florida to ensure the safety of our students and staff. These Code Red Drills will be implemented on a monthly basis, similar to fire drills. The date of the drill will not be pre-announced due to potential security and attendance issues. Instead, our school will send families Parent Link messages via phone call, text message, and/or e-mail approximately 20 minutes prior to the drill to alert everyone that it is only a drill. Please do not contact your child during the Code Red Drills as it is important for all students to learn the safety procedures in case of an emergency. Our school will then send a second message to families notifying you that the drill is completed.
Parents & Visitors
All visitors including parents must check into the attendance office prior to going to any classrooms or any area on campus. An official photo identification (ID) is required. Acceptable forms of ID include the following:
- Driver’s license
- Florida’s official state identification card
The dress code rules enforced at our school align directly with the District's Unified School Dress - Policy 5309. Review the District policies outlined on this page for more information.
Forest Glen follows the School Board of Broward County Code of Student Conduct for appropriate school attire. Clothes should be suitable, comfortable, and safe for normal school activities and reflect pride. Physical Education classes and Athletics/sports team members must purchase a Forest Glen Middle School PE Uniform, as pictured here.
The cost is $10 for the shirt and $10 for the shorts, cash only. PE Uniforms can be purchased any time throughout the school year before school and/or during all student lunches from the front office.
Cell phones or items of personal technology (ipods, MP3 players) are not to be used during instructional hours. If a student possesses personal technology, they should be turned off and kept out-of-sight inside a pocket, book bag, or purse. If these devices disrupt the educational process or out at any point during the school day, progressive discipline will be implemented and the item in question will be confiscated. The item will be only be released to a parent. Pick up may occur from 8:00 am to 3:30 pm. School Board employees will not be held liable for wireless communication devices (cell telephones, camera telephones, or pagers) that are lost, stolen, or confiscated while in their possession.
Pick Up/Drop Off
