Visitor Policy

  • Parents and others are welcome to visit Dripping Spring High School. For the safety of those within the school and to avoid disruption of instructional time, all visitors must comply with all applicable district policies and procedures. Visitors must park in the visitor parking lot, immediately report to the main office, and be prepared to show identification.

    The Raptor system checks identification against a national database of registered sex offenders. The Raptor system will print a visitor’s pass that must be worn in a visible location while the visitor is on campus. The visitor’s pass will designate the specific location of the visit to the campus. If the destination changes, the visitor must return to the office to report the new destination.

    Visits to individual classrooms during instructional time are permitted only with approval of the principal and teacher and only so long as their duration or frequency does not interfere with the delivery of instruction or disrupt the normal school environment. Even if the visit is approved prior to the visitor’s arrival, the individual must check in at the main office and the teacher/staff member who invited the visitor(s) must be contacted to escort the visitor(s) to their destination.

    Parents, legal guardians, and grandparents are welcome to check-in at the front office to eat lunch with their student(s). Siblings who are not current students also may eat lunch with their sibling(s), but must be accompanied by a parent, legal guardian, or grandparent even if they have already graduated. Raptor checks as outlined above still apply to family member visitors.
