Policies and General Information

 

Passes

No passes are required before school. A pass is required during the school day (8:15 am-3:00 p.m.).

If you need to do work during lunch, you can come pick-up a lunch pass before lunches from the media center staff.  Students must eat lunch in the cafeteria prior to coming to the media center.  The media center is a food & drink-free environment.

Sign-in Procedures

Students coming to the media center, during the day, without a teacher must show a media staff member their pass and sign in. The sign-in sheets are located on the counter near the circulation computer.  In the near future students will be required to sign in electronically.

Books

Students may check out up to four books or other materials. Media center materials are borrowed for two weeks and can be renewed.

Magazines

Current magazines are to view in the media center only.  Past magazines can be checked out for one week. 

Check out procedures

All media center materials must be checked out at the circulation desk. A media center staff member will assist in checking out materials.

Overdue notices

Students will receive overdue notices in 1st period class. Students should promptly return any overdue materials to the media center book drop.

Printing

Students will receive overdue notices in 1st period class. Students should promptly return any overdue materials to the media center book drop. 

Photocopies

Students should see a media staff member if a copy from a book or magazine is needed.

Behavior

All school PBIS rules apply in the media center. Respect for the needs and rights of others is the first rule. Students should be courteous to the media staff and work quietly when in the media center. Students must abide by the computer rules when using the research learning hub. We follow the Ridgeview Expectations: Respectful, Responsible, and Ready to Learn.

Responsibilities

Students are responsible for materials that they use and check out. Students are required to pay for any lost or damaged materials. Students will be temporarily denied borrowing privileges if they have overdue materials or have not paid for lost or damaged books.  Obligations to other MCPS schools will need to be resolved by the student.

Food and Drink

No food, gum or drinks are permitted in the media center.

Donations!

We love slightly used books! We accept new and gently used books appropriate for middle school.   

Books may be donated to classrooms if we cannot use them in the media center.
