What is your visitors' policy?
Parents are welcomed and encouraged to visit their child’s campus or have lunch on campus with their child, or volunteer at any time. Check with your specific teacher and campus for more information about visiting. District-wide, Tomball ISD is proud to provide the most innovative security system for our students and staff through V•soft. V•soft is a web-based software application that has been developed with the purpose of aiding educational facilities in tracking their visitors, students, and faculty. Tomball ISD’s visitors’ policy requires all parents to stop in the office before proceeding through the campus. Parents should check into the main reception area, present a valid drivers license to the receptionist at every visit, and wait for the official visitors' badge to print. Badges must be worn by all visitors and volunteers at all times.
