We are excited to announce the implementation of a new visitor check-in system on all Hughson Unified School District campuses. Effective January 1, 2020, we will be using the Raptor Visitor Management System to strengthen campus safety for students and staff. Part of keeping students and staff safe is knowing who is in our buildings at all times and the Raptor Visitor Management System will allow us to do this in a more efficient manner.
Each school will begin asking for and accepting identification effective January 1, 2020, which will allow visitors plenty of time and opportunities to bring their identification before our full implementation in August, 2020.
Thank you for your understanding and support in enhancing our school safety protocols. If you have any questions, please call the school office.
How it Works
Upon entering a district building, visitors will be asked to present an ID, such as a driver’s license, that will be entered into the Raptor system. Accepted forms of ID include all state licenses, state identification cards, concealed handgun licenses, consular ID cards, green cards, active military cards, and passport cards (not the full passport). The system does not officially scan other countries’ IDs. The Raptor system checks the visitor’s name and date of birth with the national database of registered sex offenders.
Raptor will issue a badge that identifies the visitor, the date, and the purpose of his/her visit.
Once the visitor’s ID has been scanned once into the Raptor system, each HUSD school building can access the information without having to scan the ID again.
The District recognizes that privacy and confidentiality are important to our visitors and that is why we want to emphasize that the registered sex offender database is the only official database checked by the Raptor system. No other data from the ID is gathered or recorded and the information is not shared with any outside agency.
