New Security System
Student safety and well-being is a core value of the Easton Public Schools. In an effort to improve our safety net for out students, our District has purchased a new security software program called Raptor. This new system is designed to check on the background of all visitors and parents who enter the school to dismiss their child, visit a classroom, or attend any meeting in our school. We will need your license for the first time to scan you into our system and print out your visitor pass. Find out more by reading the RAPTOR FAQ.
