Dear Parents/Guardians:

To better secure our schools and most importantly, our children and staff, the Ridgewood Public Schools has recently incorporated the TPASS K-12 Visitor Management System into our daily safety protocols. This system operates with ID card readers now installed outside the main entrance at all of our schools.
