IMPORTANT SAFETY UPDATES, District News, and Information
Announcement from the Office of the Superintendent

Update:
The investigation has concluded at Deming High School on the possible gun violence, no threat was found. All students are safe, and school will continue as normal. Law enforcement will continue to have a presence at Deming High School and throughout the district. Attendance today is important due to Deming High School Students receiving training on the Sandy Hook Promise Say Something App. This is an anonymous reporting system for violence in our schools.

Deming Public Schools and local law enforcement received a tip on possible gun violence at Deming High School. Law enforcement is responding and investigating the tip. We will have increased law presence at Deming High School and throughout the district. Schools are running as normal.

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.
