Media Center Information:
The Media Center is a warm, inviting place available to all students. The collection of books is continually updated to supply students with interesting, grade appropriate books to read for pleasure and to gain information. Reference materials are included in the collection to provide resources to be utilized for research projects. A qualified media specialist is available to assist students in the selection of books and use of resources.
The Media Center is open for class visits with teacher assistance and student circulation from 8:00 until 2:40 Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. The Media Center is closed all day every Wednesday.
All books and materials taken from the Media Center must be checked out at the circulation desk. Students may not check out additional books or materials if monies are due for lost or damaged books. Students are expected, but not required, to return books within one week of check out to maintain the availability of the collection.
Parents are also welcome in the Media Center during student hours or before (7:30-7:40) and after (2:40-3:00) school. Please note closed hours given above. One additional book for students may be checked out by parents.
The Internet is available to all teachers and all students for teacher-directed instructional purposes. Student access will be under teacher direction and monitored as any other classroom activity. All staff Internet users must sign the Internet Use Authorization Form. Student users must also have a parent or guardian sign the Parent or Guardian Authorization. This form is included in the enrollment packet.
The use of the network/internet is a privilege, not a right, and inappropriate use will result in a cancellation of those privileges.
