  • Absent? Please do not have a supply teacher bring your class to the library


Sending Students to the Library

When sending a student to the library, we need to know that you have given that student explicit permission:


  • A dated note with the student's name and purpose in the library helps us to help the student fulfill his or her task.
  • Some teachers prefer to make a phone call with the same information, so he or she can immediately find out if we are able to accommodate and assist the student at that time.
