Our Schools:


Visitor Check-In



By February 16, the Special Programs Center will use the Raptor program to check in our school visitors. When you visit our campus, you must present a drivers license or other government-issued photo identification if you wish to visit any part of the school other than the office reception area.


We will use Raptor during regular office hours to compare information taken from the ID (names, birthday, etc.) to databases of registered sex offenders. Once a drivers license is scanned by the school employeeand it is determined that the visitor is not a registered sex offendera visitor badge will be printed and the person can proceed to their destination. Your drivers license will be returned when the school employee presents the visitor badge to you. This process takes about 30 to 45 seconds.


On future visits, you will be able to use a kiosk to check yourself in as a visitor. While youre waiting for the visitor badge to print, the information taken from your identification (from your initial visit) will again be compared to the databases of registered sex offenders. The visitor badge will print at the reception desk and the school employee will confirm that youre the person on the printed visitor badge before you can proceed to other parts of the building.


We appreciate your cooperation and support as we implement the new check-in procedures. The safety and education of our students are our top priorities.
