V-soft Visitor Tracking System

Dear Parent/Guardian:
We would like to introduce you to a new system our school has acquired to help protect your children—it’s called V-soft. V-soft helps track visitors, contractors and volunteers at our school, thus providing a safer more monitored environment for the students.  This will be implemented starting February 7, 2011.

When visitors, volunteers or contractors check-in for the first time, or parents come to pick up students, they will be asked to present a valid state issued ID for entering into the system. The system has the ability to provide alerts on people who may jeopardize the safety of the campus.  We feel certain this will help us keep our campus a little safer, and ask for your cooperation in presenting your valid state issued ID when checking in at the school. Thank you in advance for your help in this matter.  You will then be issued a pass with a picture and bar code.  When you leave the building you will pass the bar code under the scanner at the reception office and will be logged out of the building. 

Once you are in the system, you can sign yourself in on your next visit using the Kiosks located in office 100 or 219.  Directions for using the Kiosk will be at the sign in station. You will print your pass from this location. 

WHY WE SCAN

What Data is Used

This is NOT a background search—no other criminal information is searched or provided such as traffic tickets, warrants, felonies, etc.

Data Security
The data entered or scanned into the system is secured by GeoTrust Quick SSL. Sites secured by QuickSSL are utilizing 128-bit SSL certificates thereby offering the highest level of encryption or security possible.
