Policies and Procedures
The rules in the media center are the same as the rules throughout the school:
Do your work.
Stay in your space.
Respect yourself, others, and property.
Books are generally checked out for two weeks, but may be returned earlier if no longer needed. We encourage Kindergarten and First grade students to check out one book from the “Everybody” section each week. Second and Third graders may check out two books per week. Fourth and Fifth graders may check out three books per week. Books may be kept for up to four weeks via renewal. Student checkout privileges may be expanded based on instructional need.
A student with an overdue or damaged book may not check out or renew another book until the book is returned or paid for. The fee for lost or damaged books is $15.00 for hardback books and $5.00 for paperbacks. Paperback books are marked PBK on the overdue slip - all others are hardback. The fee for lost or damaged books can be adjusted by the media specialist in situations of financial need. Contact Mr. Carey at 770-277-4451.
