Visiting our Building
Starting in early 2021, visitors, volunteers, and vendors seeking to enter OH buildings need a valid government ID to do so.
A new electronic visitor management safety system has been installed at the Elementary School, Junior/Senior High School, and district/administration office. Raptor Technologies’ Visitor Management System is used in other school districts throughout the area.
The system instantly screens for and “red flags” sex offenders, custody issues, and banned visitors. The district will always know who is in a building and that individual’s reason for being there, destination, and person they are visiting.
Everyone entering a district building must present a government ID (such as a driver’s license) and scan it into the system.
Once the ID is scanned and cleared, a name tag is printed and guests must wear it throughout their stay in the building. The name tag will include a picture of the guest as well as name, time, date, and destination within the building. If the visitor is red-flagged, the Raptor system notifies the district. Violations will be handled discreetly in accordance with district policy.
When the person’s visit to the building is over, he or she scans the barcode on the printed pass into the system. And that’s it.
“Our new system is part of a long-term plan to increase the safety and security of everyone in our buildings,” said Superintendent Dr. Adam Fineske. “These additional enhancements have included new doors, new exterior keys, and a unified key-fob entry system.”
If visitors, vendors, and volunteers do not present a valid government ID and are not successfully screened, they will not be allowed to enter.
