ID Required to Enter Gananda HS - please bring your driver's license when you come in!

Ruben A. Cirillo High School uses the same Raptor visitor management system that the Middle School used. The system provides an overall safer environment for our students and staff by enabling us to check visitors, contractors, and volunteers in the high school building. All visitors to Ruben A. Cirillo High School will need to present a valid ID to be scanned into the Raptor system. For our incoming Freshman parents and guardians, the Middle School system does not transfer over to the High School so you will need to provide your license the first time you enter the school. Once you have been scanned into the system you should not need to provide your license again.
