Raptor Upgrade
Round Rock ISD is pleased to announce that we are updating the Raptor Visitor Management System in all district schools. The District has been using the Raptor System to track visitors, contractors, and volunteers in our schools, providing us with a safer environment for our students and staff.

Old Town Elementary was updated October 11. You will need to scan your ID using the Raptor System even if you have done so in the past. This is necessary the first time you visit the school due to the upgrade.

The Raptor System checks to ensure that registered sex offenders are not entering our buildings. Note that the Raptor System only scans the visitor’s name, date of birth, and photo for comparison with a national database of registered sex offenders. Additional visitor data from the ID is not gathered nor accessible by users, and the system is not connected to any other organization such as the Department of Motor Vehicles.

Once entry is approved, Raptor will issue a badge that identifies the visitor, date, and purpose of the visit. A visitor badge will not be necessary for those who visit our schools simply to drop off an item in the office or pick up paperwork. If a person does not have identification, he/she can still be given access to the building but will be escorted by a school staff member.

If you are interested in learning more about the Raptor System, please visit Raptor Technologies’ website. If you have any questions for district personnel, please contact Mario De La Rosa, RRISD Director of Safety and Security, at 512-428-7956.

The safety of our students is our highest priority, and the Raptor System provides a consistent way to aid in keeping away people who may present a danger to our students. All visitors to the school must be scanned into the system and obtain a visitor badge.

Thank you in advance for supporting school safety protocols in our district.

Box Tops Information
This year Old Town Elementary will be collecting Box Tops to raise money for our school. Did you know that some local schools raise thousands of dollars for their schools each year, just from clipping and submitting Box Tops?  We receive 10 cents for each Box Top that we collect!

Box Tops are on the packaging of hundreds of participating products that you probably use every day.  All you need to do is cut them off of the box they are on, stick them in a baggie and send them to school with your child.

We are currently having a competition between the Kindergarten through 2nd grades and 3rd through 5th grades to see which grade level group will collect the most.  The winning grade level group will get to vote as to what the other group of teachers will have to do. Will they kiss a pig?  Wear tutus all day? Get a pie in the face?  Have to dance during lunches?  It will be up to the grade level group that gets the most Box Tops turned in by October 27!

Be sure to track our progress at www.boxtops4education.com.  Thanks for choosing to support our school by collecting Box Tops!
