On August 28 and 29, 2019, Torrance Unified School District, in partnership with the Torrance Council of PTAs, will host free screenings of the documentary LIKE 

Technology is a tool. Social platforms provide a place for us all to connect and share. But what effects are technology and social media having on our kids? The amount of time teens spend on their devices and social media has dramatically increased over the past six years. About 89% of teens own a smartphone and 70% use social media several times a day.

The documentary LIKE helps parents and kids better understand the impacts of technology and social media, and encourages them to find ways to create balance and to self-regulate screen time. By screening this documentary for parents, the District’s goal is to create a greater awareness about the effects of social media and to start the discussion with parents on how to help our kids navigate these platforms constructively, and safely.

The free screenings of LIKE will take place at 10 am and at 7 pm on:

August 28, 2019 at North High School and
August 29, 2019 at West High School


The documentary is approximately 45 minutes long and will be screened in the Performing Arts Center at both high schools. There will be a panel discussion immediately following the screening.

Raptor Visitor/Volunteer Management System

Image result for Raptor Visitor management system


In a continued effort to strengthen campus safety at all of our schools, Torrance Unified School District (TUSD) will begin implementing the Raptor Visitor/Volunteer Management System over the next few weeks at all of our school sites. 

Upon entering any TUSD school, visitors will be asked to present government-issued identification (ID) with a barcode, such as a driver’s license, which can either be scanned or manually entered into the system. If a parent/guardian, for any reason, does not have this type of ID, a school staff member can use alternate forms of ID and manually enter the visitor’s information into the Raptor system.

For improved safety, Raptor will allow us to better screen all of our visitors on campus. The system checks to ensure that registered sex offenders are not entering our school campuses without our knowledge. 

For those of you who generously volunteer your time on our campuses, TUSD will continue to adhere to its Volunteer Policy (to view, please visit our website at www.tusd.org). TUSD school volunteers will receive a Raptor badge each time they are on campus. 

Raptor will issue a badge that identifies the visitor, the date, and the purpose of his/her visit. A visitor’s badge is not necessary for those who visit our schools simply to drop off or pick up items in the front office.

We recognize that privacy and confidentiality are important to our visitors, which is why we want to emphasize that the Raptor system only 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 Raptor. No other data from the identification card is gathered and recorded. Information is not shared with any outside agency.

The safety of our students and staff is our highest priority, and the Raptor system allows us to quickly identify visitors that may present a danger to our students. 

Thank you in advance for your support in helping us enhance our school safety protocols in TUSD. Together we can ensure our students and staff are safe. Please contact your school principal if you have questions about our new safety system.
