On the week they don't have a lesson they will just check out for 15 minutes. 1st grade starts the year out checking out 1 book and each teacher decides when they feel a student is responsible enough to check out 2 books. Second grade students check out 2 books.
  • 3-5 has a 15 minute fixed check out time every other week. It is the teacher's discretion if they wish to sign up for a fixed time.

Of course, students may come individually any time to check out. Please only send 4 students at a time. For K-2, on the morning of your library day please send your books down right after the announcements. Please plan on being with your class in the library. We understand if you need to take a quick restroom break or take care of some other pertinent issue. We ask that you help us keep the library look nice by monitoring your students at the shelves.
