New Visitor Check-In Process to Start in September

RaptorTo enhance safety for students and staff, Mehlville School District will begin screening all visitors using the Raptor Visitor Management System. 

"Student safety is our highest priority," said Chris Gaines, Superintendent of Mehlville School District. "The new system provides schools with a quick and efficient way to identify those who might present a danger to students."

Upon entering a school building, visitors will be asked to present an ID, such as a driver's license or other government-issued ID. The ID will be passed through a scanner. Within a few seconds, Raptor will check the visitor against the national database of registered sex offenders.

Raptor systems were installed in Mehlville schools two weeks ago, and many schools have already started using them. All schools will be using Raptor as of Sept. 4.
The Mehlville School District strictly prohibits discrimination and harassment against employees, students or others on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, age, disability, or sex including pregnancy, sexual orientation, and gender identity and other characteristics protected by law. The following individuals have been designated to handle inquiries regarding the non-discrimination policies: contact Adam Smith at 314-467-5006 or [email protected].
