New Visitor and Volunteer Sign-in Program
St. Peter Catholic School is pleased to announce that we will begin using the Raptor Visitor/Volunteer Management System in all of our school to build on the school's program of campus safety for students and faculty. Part of keeping students and faculty safe is knowing who is in our building at all times and the Raptor system will allow us to do that. The Raptor system will better allow us to track visitors and volunteers in our schools and provide us with a safer environment for our students and staff. Click here to learn more. Click here to complete the application.
Covenant Eyes is an on-line program that educates parents on the digital threats to your children. Bishop Sheridan would like to see all of our parents view the 20-minute video, answer the questions, and print out the certificate. If you are interested in purchasing the monitoring program through CMGConnect, you can purchase it as an individual family; there is a monthly fee for the service. The Bishop is testing this program with the families in the Catholic schools first before he tries to do something across all of the parishes. Please let us know if you complete the video or send in a copy of your certificate.
