Circulation Policy for Students:

Kindergarten - Second Grade:  One item with no overdues.

Third - Fifth Grade:  Two items with no overdues

 

Overdues:

Books are checked out for 2 weeks and may be renewed by the student.  Students who have overdue materials may not check out books until these materials are returned to the media center.  Overdue notices are sent home on the first and third Friday of each month.

 

Damaged Materials:

If materials are returned to the media center damaged, a letter may be sent to student's parents/guardians requesting payment for the material.  Students will not be able to check out materials until the damaged materials are paid for.  We appreciate the cooperation of parents who help their children keep their materials safe, clean, and dry.

 

Lost Materials:

After sending two overdue notices, the media center will send a letter and notice to the parents/guardians of the student requesting help in finding the materials.  Students will not be able to check out other materials until the lost items have been returned to media center or paid for.  If the materials are found at a later they may be returned to the media center and a refund will be sent home.

 

However, if a student has lost or damaged materials and needs materials for a school assignment they may meet with Mrs. Jervis to establish alternate arrangements for use of media materials.

 

Online Resources for Home Use: 

Homework Resources are online resources that students may access from home.
