Borrowing & Return Policy:
Textbooks & Other Required Classroom Materials:
There is no limit on number borrowed. It is expected that as soon as students are done with the materials they are returned. The latest this is expected to happen is just prior or immediately following finals and diplomas. In many cases (i.e. English) students do not need to keep the book longer than it is used in the classroom. If the materials are still out after all tests have been written an overdue notice with request for return or payment lost fees will sent. At this point students will have been given reminders either by Mrs. Marshall or their teacher.
Students in good standing (no overdue materials) can borrow up to three books at a time. The books are due back in three weeks, after which time they can bring the book back and renew it for another three weeks if no one else is waiting for the book.
