Library Books Due

The end of the school year is quickly approaching, and it is the time of year that the Lesslie Library collects all student library books for the summer. Please make sure your students turn in all their library books by Friday, May 5. If a library book has been lost, please pay the replacement price listed on the overdue notices that will be going home with your children. The last overdue notices went out on Tuesday, May 18 in Tuesday folders. Your students will continue to receive overdue notices until their books are either turned in or paid for, if lost. Please note - students will not be able to check out during the 2023-2024 school year until books are returned or payment for lost books is made. Thank you for understanding.
