Visiting Mountainside Elementary

  • NEW Access Requirements for School Activities on Post:

    • Individuals who do not have a DoD ID card or an installation access credential and who are attending a school district event must access Fort Carson through Gate 1
    • Identify yourself and state the school function you are attending. For example: "Mrs. Smith, Mountainside Elementary Awards Ceremony"
    • Occupants' (18 years of age and older) identification will be checked
    • All vehicles may be inspected
    • Visitors must go directly from Gate 1 to the school
    • Visitors must leave Fort Carson immediately after the event


    RAPTOR System:
    We want to remind everyone that safety and security of the people in our facilities is a priority in every school district throughout the country. Mountainside Elementary School, as well as the rest of the facilities in Fountain-Fort Carson District 8, have implemented a new program in each of its schools known as the RAPTOR identification system. This process will help school personnel to know who is visiting our buildings at any time. These procedures are being implemented with the safety of our students and staff as our highest priority.
