Hello, students and teachers!
The library is open for Enrichment starting August 25th. For now, there will be a 50-person capacity restriction due to COVID. Please keep at least 3 feet distance from each other and keep face masks on at all times. I am very happy to see all of you and will be smiling behind my mask when I see you!
PS...if you got a reminder from me to return materials, drop them off at school anytime between 9:00a.m - 3:00pm Monday through Friday. There will always be someone in the front office or in the counseling office this summer. They will gather the books for me until I return in August.
