Our library is open before school, after school and during all breaks and lunches unless reserved for use by a teacher with their class or another function requiring the library to be closed at that time. There is always a sign to indicate why the library might not be available that day.
Students may use the library computers before school, during breaks and lunches and after school until 3:30. The students can use the computers to complete school work or work on projects. I will be happy to help any student that needs help using program. An acceptable use policy must be on file for the students to access the internet.
I prefer the students have a student ID card to checkout library books, textbooks and core novels. If they forget on occasion to bring their ID I will still allow them to check out a library book, core novel or textbook. It just makes it a lot easier if all student s carry their cards with them. ID cards will be issued at the beginning of the year. Lost cards can be replaced, for a $5.00 charge at Student Services. Library books:
Students may check out library books up to three library books for two weeks at a time and renew books twice for two more weeks. Lost or damaged books will have to be paid for before students can check out more books. Students with overdue books will not be able to check out library books unless the book is returned or paid for. Textbooks:
Textbooks are issued at the beginning of the year during orientation. These textbooks are for the students at-home use and they do not need to bring them to school every day.
At the end of the school year students will be told when to return their at-home set of textbooks. This process begins the last few weeks before school gets out for the year. Students can come on their own time, with their textbooks and make sure they are scanned and cleared. Also, the students will be scheduled with one of their teachers for a specific day to return their books. This avoids the students standing in line before school, lunch and breaks for extended periods of time.
