Student Responsibilities

  • Upon receiving their books, students should examine their books and report any damage.

  • It is strongly recommended that students cover their books - no contact paper please.

  • Students should write down the title and barcode of each textbook they check out. Check the library for accuracy of current textbook status. Clear up any issues before the end of the year.
  • Students are responsible for any individual textbook they check out. Do not leave them in the classroom and do not loan them to a friend. If a book is taken, even from the classroom, students are responsible. Books can cost over $100 each!
  • When students return their books, they should wait for the library staff to scan each book and make sure they are returning the actual book they checked out.
  • Books should be returned immediately if a student drops a class or leaves the school. All other books are due at the end of the year.

Q) What if my textbook can't be used again?

A) Excessive damage to a book that causes it to be unusable will result in the student being charged for the replacement cost of the book.

Q) How do I get another textbook if mine is lost or stolen?

A) As soon as the replacement cost of the textbook is paid, a copy of the receipt is all you need to clear the fine.

Q) What if a student pays for a textbook that is later found?

A) The book becomes the property of the student/parent as soon as the textbook bill has been paid.  If a student later finds a textbook for which they have paid and the textbook is still a current adoption, the student will receive a refund.  *** We do not refund for lost textbook novels.

Q) What if a teacher allows students store textbooks in the classroom?

A)  Students store textbooks in classrooms at their own risk. A student is responsible for the textbook they checked out – not just any textbook.  If the textbook disappears from the classroom, the student is still responsible for the textbook. We do not recommend storing textbooks in the classroom.
