BOOKS AVAILABLE IN THE SCHOOL LIBRARY, WHITE RIVER PUBLIC LIBRARY & CENTER GROVE DIGITAL LIBRARY!
If a student is having Ipad issues please send them to the library for assistance. If a student tells you that the tech dept. has it, be aware that turnaround time is less than 24 hours. Most of the time, it’s back in a few hours. It’s extremely rare for them to have it more than that. Students need to check back with us in the library to see if their Ipad is ready. Sometimes the tech dept. has them finished and they sit here for a week or two and the students don’t bother to check on them. You can always check with me to find out the status of the ipad. Sometimes when you send a student here for help they do not come because they have hacked their ipad and they know they will be in trouble.
