This mission recognizes the essential role of the school library program in the educational process as all students reach their potential.
Students in Kindergarten and First Grade will begin checkout around the first of October after all book care lessons have been taught. Students will not bring Library books home until the 2nd half of the year, at the librarian/teacher discretion. They will be for classroom use only until then.
Students in 2nd and 3rd grade will be able to check out 1 book each once book care and library routine lessons have been taught. Student's books are due back on their library resource day each week. They may only check out new materials once all previous materials are returned. If they are responsible, they may check out 2 books after the 1st semester.
Students in 4th and 5th grade may check out 2 books each once we have gone over rules and book care. Student's books are due back on their library resource day every other week. They may only check out new materials once all previous materials are returned or renewed.
Overdue, Lost, or Damaged Books
Overdue books need to be returned as soon as possible. There will be no fee or fine for late or overdue books, but students will not be allowed to checkout any new materials until they have been returned. Please return any damaged books as soon as you realize the damage has occurred, as it may be repaired. Any damaged beyond repair or lost and cant be found, it can be replaced with a new hard back copy of the book or a replacement fee for the book. Students will be able to check out once all issues have been resolved.
