Usage and Materials
The media center is open from 9:00-3:30. Students have the opportunity to select and check out books during media class each week and during the day with their teacher’s permission. Students are encouraged to return books on time so they can select/check out new books.
Kindergarten: 1 book
1st - 5th grade: 2 books
All books are due 2 weeks after they are checked out. Due dates are stamped on the back of the book. No fines will be charged for overdue books, but students are expected to pay for books that are lost or damaged and cannot be repaired.
