*These social media outlets have not been updated, as frequently as I had hoped. It will be a top goal for next school you to keep students are parents informed via Facebook and Twitter. Please consider checking these out!*
This year, in addition to tutoring, students have extended library hours.
Late Library- Tuesdays until 4:20 pm
*Please note that we do not charge library late fees; as long as the book is returned our students do not owe any money to the school. If a book is lost or damaged, then the price of the book should be paid to the school or a replacement copy brought in! Final grade cards will be held if lost or damaged books are not taken care of by the end of the school year. Library check-out is a two week loan; if a student is still reading the book- then the book should be brought in to scan for a renewal. Thanks for your help!*
Please check the list by the library to see if you have a past due book.
