Before and After School
The Media Center opens at 7:45 a.m. and remains open until 3:20 p.m. on most afternoons. The LMC closes for meetings on Wednesdays at 2:50p.m. A sign will be posted on these days. If your student needs to use the LMC on a day when we close early, please have them check with our Media staff to find out what other options exist. Students do not need a pass for before or after school.
Students must show a pass from their classroom teacher to Media staff as soon as they enter the center. They also sign in on the form at the service counter and sign out when they leave. Students are asked to return to class five minutes before the end-of-class bell rings.
Students may pick up a lunch pass in the Media Center before they go to lunch. Students place passes on the service counter upon arrival at the Media Center and sign in on the clipboard.
Students stay the remainder of the lunch period and proceed to class when their lunch period is over.
Students may check out 2 books for 2 weeks and 2 magazines for 2 days. Students may renew a book unless other students have placed a reserve on the item. Books can be renewed even if you have left it at home. Remember that renewing your book helps you avoid overdue fees!
Every 7 days, overdue & library fine notices are automatically emailed to students. Students are responsible for regularly checking their PSD email accounts. At the end of each quarter, English teachers will be given a list of students with overdue books & library fines.
Fines for late items are 10¢ per day for each item.
Students have the option of "reading off" or working off their fines instead of paying the fine with money. Please see Mrs. Schachet or Mrs. Foster to make arrangements if this is your choice of payment.
