Raptor System Implementation: In order to ensure the safety of our campuses, we have implemented the Raptor Visitor Management System, which helps us to always know who is on our campus. A communication was sent on Thursday, February 13th, 2020 about this change; however, if you did not see it, please click HERE to view the original communication. This new system went live on Monday, February 17th, 2020 and allows us to track visitors, vendors and volunteers in a better way. Starting on Monday, February 17th, we ask that all visitors have their valid state-issued ID ready to be scanned to be let on campus. The security of our community is of the utmost importance, and we appreciate your cooperation, understanding and patience as we roll out the Raptor Visitor Management System. If you have questions about Raptor or its implementation, please reach out to Headmaster Clark or Headmaster Goodrich.
