    Open Checkout

    Students are welcome in the library any time during the school day to checkout, use library computers, or complete assignments or tests. Teachers should send students with a completed pass or planner to the library.

    Visiting the Library During Lunch

    Students may come to the library during lunch. Students should eat lunch FIRST, get a library lunch pass from a teacher in the cafeteria,and must remain in the library until lunch is over.

    Visiting the Library Before School

    Many students arrive at school early. The library is open daily at 7:45 AM to provide a quiet place for students to read, study, checkout, or work on library computers. This time is the only time during the day when no talking is allowed. If students wish to chat with friends, they may go to the cafeteria or the 6th grade hallway.

    Please do not rely on the library being open every morning. We are occasionally closed for faculty meetings or other gatherings.
