Our Visitor Management System is in place for parents and volunteers to check in and out. Don't forget to bring a driver's license, passport, or some other official ID each time you visit the school. When you log into the system for the first time, the camera will take your picture, which will stay on file. The computer will automatically print a visitor sticker with your image. When you leave the building, you will scan your badge or license and the system will check you out. On subsequent visits, you will scan your ID and your sticker will automatically print. Thank you for your cooperation.
