New system in place beginning Sept. 17 to enhance building safety

Hamilton High School is pleased to announce it will begin using the Raptor Visitor Management System beginning Monday, September 17.

Part of keeping students and faculty safe is knowing who is in our buildings at all times, and the Raptor system will permit us to do that. The Raptor system will better allow us to screen visitors, contractors and volunteers in our schools and provide us with a safer environment for our students and staff.

Upon entering Hamilton during the school day, parents and visitors will be asked to present an ID such as a driver’s license, which can either be scanned or manually entered into the system. Once entry is approved, Raptor will issue a badge that identifies the visitor, the date and the purpose of his or her visit.

A visitor’s badge will not be necessary for those who visit school simply to drop off an item at the desk near the cafeteria entrance. Thank you in advance for your understanding and your support in enhancing the school safety protocols in our district.

Construction continues

Parents dropping off and/or picking up their child(ren) should enter Hamilton through the south drive off of Town Line Rd. or through the service drive from Silver Spring Rd. The only student pick-up location at Hamilton is the cafeteria entrance.

Buses will utilize the north entrance. Please do not use the north entrance. Be cautious when entering and leaving the parking lot as there will be more foot and car traffic in this area than in the past. Please give yourself extra time and plan ahead as congestion is expected.

Also, please take note that the east front parking lot is reserved for staff only. Visitor parking is now located by the cafeteria doors. Thank you for your patience.
