Raptor

Warren Township Schools is pleased to announce that we are using the Raptor Visitor Management System in all of our schools to strengthen our program of campus safety for students and staff. Part of keeping students and faculty safe is knowing who is in our buildings at all times, and the Raptor System allows us to do that. The Raptor System allows us to screen visitors, contractors, and volunteers in our schools and provide us with a safer environment for our students and staff. Our goal is to keep a balance of being a welcoming school district as well as maintaining the safety of our students and staff.

Dress Code Change

Parents, we have made an adjustment to our dress code. Students no longer have to wear a collared shirt. Students can wear any full length shirt with a modest neckline that is free of inappropriate images and language. Pants still need to be khakis or jeans, no sweat pants, yoga pants or leggings. That is the only change to the dress code.


The new version is in the link below.
