As a continued part of a district-wide focus on school security, Morongo Unified School District is implementing a new visitor check-in system called Raptor vSoft (or simply, Raptor). This system is used to help track visitors, students, faculty, contractors and volunteers at our schools, thus providing a more secure and closely monitored environment for our students. When a visitor, volunteer or contractor checks in, or when a parent comes into a school, we will ask them to present a valid driver’s license or state-issued ID (passports will not be accepted as a form of ID).

Please note the following IDs are known to work within the system:

  • Military ID
  • Government ID
  • Mexico Driver License
  • Mexico Consulate ID
  • Canada Driver License
  • Alien Registration Receipt Cards

This list is not meant to be exhaustive, or to exclude other forms of valid state or government issued photo identification cards. If another form of ID is presented, we will evaluate its use for the Raptor system. 

The ID will be scanned into the system and the personal information on the ID will be checked against a national sex offender database. This will provide an added layer of protection to ensure our schools remain secure environments for students, staff and approved visitors.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation in presenting your valid ID when checking in at any of our campuses. We appreciate your partnership, commitment and service to our schools! If you would like to learn more about the new visitor system, please visit the Raptor website Opens a New Window. . If you have any questions about the procedures, please contact your school principal.
