PSA: Deming Intermediate School Breakfast after the Bell

Starting Tuesday October 15, 2019, Deming Intermediate School will be implementing Breakfast after the Bell (BATB). Breakfast after the Bell is a legislative approved program that has helped feed thousands of New Mexico children since its inception in 2011. Beginning in the school year 2019-2020, the operative statutory provision directs schools participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) with a free/reduced percentage of 85 percent or greater, must offer a breakfast at no charge to each student after the instructional day has begun.

Benefits of Breakfast after the Bell;

1. BATB ensures that all New Mexican students have access to a healthy breakfast every day at school.
2. Helps combat childhood hunger.
3. Increases the number of children eating breakfast at and on school days.
4. Increases the consumption of nutritious foods.
5. Improves academic performance by preparing children to learn.
6. Improves the overall health of children in the state of New Mexico.

PSA: Raptor Visitor Management System at Deming High School

Starting Monday, September 30, 2019, Deming High School is pleased to announce that we will begin using the Raptor Visitor Management System to strengthen our program of campus safety for students and faculty. Part of keeping students and faculty safe is knowing who is in our buildings at all times, and the Raptor system will allow us to do that. The Raptor system will better allow us to screen visitors, contractors, and volunteers in our schools and provide us with a safer environment for our students and staff.

Upon entering Deming High School, visitors will be asked to present an ID such as a Driver’s License, which can either be scanned or manually entered into the system. If a parent or guardian for any reason does not have a US government-issued ID, the school staff member can use any form of identification and manually enter the person’s name into the Raptor system. The Raptor system will check to ensure that registered sexual offenders are not entering our school campuses without our knowledge. The Raptor system checks the visitor's name and date of birth for comparison with a national database of registered sex offenders. The registered sex offender database is the only official database checked by the Raptor system. No other data from the ID is gathered or recorded and the information is not shared with any outside agency. Once entry is approved, Raptor will issue a badge that identifies the visitor, the date, and the purpose of his/her visit. A visitor’s badge will not be necessary for those who visit our schools simply to drop off an item in the office or pick up paperwork.

The safety of our students is our highest priority and the Raptor visitor management system allows us to quickly identify those that may present a danger to our students. Thank you in advance for your understanding and your support in enhancing our school safety protocols.
