New Raptor System

Lexington One is implementing an enhanced version of the district’s visitor management system (Raptor).  As part of this upgrade, everyone will be required to present their driver’s license when they enter New Providence Elementary School or any Lexington One facility. Even if your driver’s license was previously scanned into our old system, everyone will have to present their license to be scanned into the new system.  For safety reasons, all visitors must return to the front office to sign out to ensure accountability for all visitors in our building.  We appreciate your patience while everyone becomes familiar with the upgraded system. The safety of our students and staff has always been the top priority at New Providence Elementary School and Lexington School District One.  Thank you for your support of New Providence Elementary School.
