RAPTOR SYSTEM - Beginning March 16th

In our continual effort to increase safety and security at our schools, the Oshkosh Area School District has expanded its safety protocols. Effective March 16, 2020 all OASD schools will begin using the Raptor Visitor Management System
Keeping students and staff safe is a top priority for the Oshkosh Area School District, and knowing who is in our buildings, as well as having an orderly check-in/out process, is a key component of providing a safe environment throughout the District.  
Upon entering a school building, visitors will be asked to present a valid state-issued ID, which will be checked against a national sex offender database to ensure that registered sexual offenders are not entering our buildings. If a parent/guardian or visitor 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 and date of birth into the Raptor system. The registered sex offender database is the only official database checked by the Raptor system. The only data collected is the individual’s name, date of birth, and picture. No other pieces of information are collected nor is any of this information shared with any outside agency. NOTE: 
  • All visitors that wish to enter student areas of a school OR pick-up a student during school hours will be required to sign-in using the Raptor system. Visitors that are simply dropping something off at the office or meeting with office staff will not need to use the system. 
  • Acceptable forms of identification include driver’s license, state ID, U.S. military ID, or passport.
Once entry is approved, the system will issue a badge that identifies the visitor (with photo), 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. Volunteers and all contractors or subcontractors will be subject to the same procedure as visitors at all times. If identity cannot be verified through an acceptable form of identification, individuals will not be allowed to proceed further.


Hello Families, 

The last unit of the Bridges curriculum gives students in grades 1-5 the opportunity to experience problem solving design in various ways.  These units require items that are around many of our homes. Please consider donating them to our school to help support our last unit in Bridges.  Send them with your child and classroom teachers will take it from there!

Thank you for your consideration.
