Library Book Check Out

Books may be checked out for two weeks, with the option to renew for an additional two weeks.  Students will receive overdue book reminders via email and in their assigned reading class. If overdue books are not returned by the end of each quarter, notifications may be sent out to parents making them aware of their students' potential fines. 


Student Expectations

The library is a place where students may go for quiet study, computer work, collaboration, or to conduct research. Maintaining a welcoming, supportive, purposeful and productive academic environment is our goal.  All district and school policies are enforced, including behavior expectations and the computer user agreement signed by all students. No food or drink is permitted in the library.
