To Return or Not to Return?

All Enrichment material items purchased through the school with state education funds are considered the property of the school. Non-consumables need to be returned to the school library when the student withdraws from the school. They may be returned earlier if the items are no longer needed for student learning.

When returning Enrichment items, you will first want to know what needs to be returned. You can access your child's "inventory" (all of the Enrichment items you have purchased for them) in the EOS or your HST may send this list to you. The last column of this inventory says "Consumable" at the top. If there is a "yes" in that column, the item does NOT have to be returned to Yosemite Valley and if there is a "no" in that column then that item will need to be returned to the Lending Library.

If you think that an item is categorized incorrectly, please contact your HST.

How to Return Items

Lending Library and Enrichment items must be returned directly to Lending Library Staff. Please do not leave anything outside the library doors or in the hallway.
