Raptor Campus Security Software at NSEEP
A valid State issued ID (driver’s license) is required to enter NSEEP as is the procedure throughout the North Syracuse School District. Please report to the main office to sign in/check in. On your first visit, your State issued ID will be scanned by the “Raptor” system and you will then receive a visitor badge containing your identification information. Minors that do not have a valid State ID will be allowed to visit, as long as they are accompanied by an adult that has checked in according to our procedures.
Parents/guardians who drop off/pick up students daily, once registered with our electronic sign-in procedure, will not be required to display your ID each time you visit. Drop off and pick up times are as follows:
A.M. Drop Off 8:35 to 8:50
A.M. Pick Up 11:15 to 11:30
P.M. Drop Off 12:05 to 12:20
P.M. Pick Up 2:45 to 3:00
Full Day Drop Off 8:05 to 8:20
Full Day Pick Up 1:45 to 2:00
Please remember to label all items with your child’s name. Each child should bring the following items to school:
- A sturdy bag for carrying items to and from school.
- Any special toy, stuffed animal or other personal “treasure” that will help your child feel comfortable.
- Wear or bring sneakers or rubber-soled shoes for outdoor play. As the weather changes, dress appropriately for the conditions.
There is a lunch program available for children in full day classes only. Children may bring a lunch and drink from home or recieve a free school lunch through the USDA Community Eligiblity Provision program. Additionally students enrolled in a half day program are provided with a free meal (either breakfast or lunch depending on time of day) through the USDA Community Eligibility Provision program.
Regular communication with families is very important. Teachers will keep you informed about your child's instructional program, activities, and special events on a weekly basis. We encourage your participation to your child’s school program and hope you will visit frequently. Please contact your child’s classroom teacher to make arrangements.
We appreciate your continued support as we continue to provide a secure and productive environment for each child. You are a valued member of your child’s educational team! Please don’t hesitate to call us with any concerns.
