Overdue / Lost / damaged books

When a child has an overdue book, that child will be reminded to return the book the following school day. The third week it is overdue, a reminder note will be sent home with the child.  We ask that lost or damaged books be paid for rather than replaced by a book purchased by the parent. We purchase books with library bindings and sturdy, water-resistant covers that can stand up to years of use.

Children with overdue books do not check out books, but if the matter is not resolved in a reasonable time, we will call home to discuss the circumstances. Students are always allowed to check out books needed for classroom projects.
