PSA: Raptor Visitor Management System

Starting Monday, November 11, 2019, Deming Public Schools is pleased to announce that we will begin using the Raptor Visitor Management System in all of our schools to strengthen our program of campus safety for students and faculty. Part of keeping students and faculty safe is knowing who is in our buildings at all times, and the Raptor system will allow 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 a district building, 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. If a parent or guardian for any reason does not have a US government-issued ID, the school staff member can use any form of identification and manually enter the person’s name into the Raptor system. The Raptor system will check to ensure that registered sexual offenders are not entering our school campuses without our knowledge. The Raptor system checks the visitor's name and date of birth for comparison with a national database of registered sex offenders. 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. Once entry is approved, Raptor will issue a badge that identifies the visitor, the date, and the purpose of his/her visit. A visitor’s badge will not be necessary for those who visit our schools simply to drop off an item in the office or pick up paperwork.

The safety of our students is our highest priority and the Raptor visitor management system allows us to quickly identify those that may present a danger to our students. Thank you in advance for your understanding and your support in enhancing the school safety protocols in our district.

Two Mill Levy

The Deming Public School Board would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who voted in support of the two mill levy.

Friendly Reminder
Attendance is very important here at Memorial School. Every day that your child misses, they are missing critical information that will enable them to meet the Common Core State Standards. We also would like to encourage parents to not check out your student early, unless it is an emergency. Teachers do begin teaching the minute the bell rings at 8:20 and will not stop until the bell rings at the end of the day at 3:00. We appreciate your understanding in this matter!
Welcome to Memorial Elementary
MEMORIAL ELEMENTARY PURPOSE: "The purpose of Memorial Elementary is to foster a legacy of love and learning."
