PlayAway Permission Form

Must be completed to checkout PlayAways!

What are PlayAways?

The Orchard Grove Elementary Media Center has “books” in a new technology format called Playaways. A Playaway is a pre-loaded, self-contained audio book that is smaller than a deck of cards. Students can listen to the audiobook using their own headphones.

Why does OGES need a permission slip for students to use the PlayAways?

We circulate these new audiobooks with our 3rd-5th grades. Due to the fact that these new resources are more expensive than books, we are requiring parent permission before students are able to check out a Playaway. If your child checks out a Playaway and it gets lost or damaged, you would be responsible for replacing the item. Playaways range in price from $34.99 to $69.99, depending on the title.
