Library Expectations

Checkout

Students will visit the library with their class once a week. Students will be able to borrow books to bring home and read during their class's visit. The loan period for books is two weeks.

Students are expected to select at least one Spanish title during their class visit.

The maximum number of books a student can have checked out at a time is 10. When a student has 10 borrowed books, they will not be able to borrow new books until they return the ones they have.

Check-in

Please return books after two weeks. If you would like to renew a book and keep it for longer, please speak with me.

Most classes have boxes to return books in their classrooms. If your student has finished with their books they can put them in the box and I will return them to the library. There is also a book return at the entrance of the library.

I will send out overdue reminders occasionally, usually before breaks. If you have books that need to be returned, I will let you know by email.

Recess

In addition to their class visit, students also have the opportunity to visit the library during their long recess.

Grades 1-5 may borrow up to 4 books per day as long as they do not exceed the 10-book checkout limit. Kinder students may choose 2-3 books per day.

Loss or Damage

We do not charge fines for overdue books. However, if a book is lost or damaged, you will be responsible for the cost of replacing the book.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I am happy to help. You can email me at: kruegerg@loswego.k12.or.us


Sacar libros

Los estudiantes visitarán la biblioteca con su clase una vez por semana. Podrán tomar prestado libros para llevar a casa y leer durante la visita de su clase. El periodo de préstamo para los libros es de dos semanas.
Se espera que los estudiantes elijan por lo menos un título en español durante la visita de su clase.

El número máximo de libros que un estudiante puede tener a la vez es 10. Cuando un estudiante tenga 10 libros prestados, no pueda tomar prestado libros nuevos hasta que devuelva los que tiene.
Devolución de libros

Favor de devolver los libros después de dos semanas. Si quieren renovar un libro para guardarlo más, por favor hablen conmigo.

La mayoría de las clases tiene cajas para devolver libros en sus salones. Si tu estudiante ha terminado con sus libros puede ponerlos en la caja y yo los devolveré a la biblioteca. También hay una caja para la devolución de libros en la entrada de la biblioteca.

Enviaré recordatorios de libros atrasados ocasionalmente, generalmente antes de las vacaciones. Si tienen libros que necesitan ser devueltos, se lo haré saber por correo electrónico.

Recreo

Además de la visita de su clase, los estudiantes también pueden escoger a visitar la biblioteca durante el recreo largo.

Los estudiantes en grado 1-5 pueden sacar hasta 4 libros cada día con tal de que no excedan el límite de prestar (10). Los estudiantes de Kinder pueden elegir 2-3 libros por día.

Loss or Damage

No cobramos multas para libros atrasados. Sin embargo, si se pierde o se daña un libro, será responsable del costo de reemplazar el libro.

Si tienen alguna pregunta, estoy a su disposición. Me alegra ayudar. Pueden mandarme un correo a: kruegerg@loswego.k12.or.us

NEW APPLICATION FOR SCHOOL VOLUNTEERS/NUEVA SOLICITUD PARA VOLUNTARIOS ESCOLARES

For the safety of children, volunteers are required to have an approved background check when volunteering in schools.


To help streamline compliance with state and school board policies, which require that all volunteers have background checks and knowledge of other board policies -- as well as state-mandated proof of vaccination (or a qualified exemption) -- we are introducing a new all-in-one volunteer application and approval process through ou Raptor Visitor Management System.


Submitting an online application initiates the background check process. Once submitted, applicants will receive an email upon approval of your background check and you will be given access through the onsite Raptor System at all schools. Please allow up to three weeks to process your approval.


Volunteers need to submit only one application for volunteering in all LOSD schools. Applications need to be submitted annually to capture changes in background checks, policies, and/or vaccination requirements.


Volunteer Application for LOSD



Thank you for applying promptly, and for your service to our students and schools. We are grateful for our volunteers.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Para la seguridad de los niños, se requiere que los voluntarios tengan una verificación de antecedentes aprobada cuando se ofrecen como voluntarios en las escuelas.


Para ayudar a agilizar el cumplimiento de las políticas estatales y de la junta escolar, que requieren que todos los voluntarios tengan verificación de antecedentes y conocimiento de otras políticas de la junta, así como prueba de vacunación exigida por el estado (o una exención calificada), estamos introduciendo un nuevo Proceso de solicitud y aprobación de voluntarios en uno a través de nuestro sistema de gestión de visitantes Raptor.


Enviar una solicitud en línea inicia el proceso de verificación de antecedentes. Una vez enviados, los solicitantes recibirán un correo electrónico sobre la aprobación de su verificación de antecedentes y se les dará acceso a través del Sistema Raptor en el sitio en todas las escuelas. Espere hasta tres semanas para procesar su aprobación.


Los voluntarios deben presentar solo una solicitud para ser voluntario en todas las escuelas LOSD. Las solicitudes deben enviarse anualmente para capturar los cambios en las verificaciones de antecedentes, las políticas y/o los requisitos de vacunación.


Volunteer Application for LOSD


Gracias por presentar su solicitud con prontitud y por su servicio a nuestros estudiantes y escuelas. Estamos agradecidos por nuestros voluntarios.

We will direct students to the gym, where they can grab their breakfast and eat. Breakfast will be served until 8:15 am.
