All visitors to Vanston Middle School (parents, guardians, volunteers, contractors, etc.) will now be required to present a valid state issued ID in the office.  The ID number will be entered into the new V-Soft computer system.  V-Soft helps track visitors, students, faculty, contractors and volunteers at our school, thus providing a safer, more monitored environment for the students. 

V-Soft also has the capability to provide alerts on people who may jeopardize the safety of the campus.

We at Vanston feel certain that this will help keep our campus a little safer, and ask for your cooperation in presenting a valid state ID when checking in at the school.  Thank you in advance for your help in this matter.
