Teen Tech Week 2014
Come join us in the LRC for Teen Tech Week! It runs from March 10th to 14th and we will have contests and displays running all week! Every day there will be a contest where correct answers will become eligible for prizes! In the display case outside of the LRC we will be displaying old technology that has been collected from staff so make sure to check it out. In the LRC there will be technology books on display as well as "Did you know..." technology facts.

LRC Book Policies and Procedures
Students may check out up to three books and one magazine at a time. Books are checked out for three weeks while magazines are checked out for one week period. Current monthly issues of magazines are available for students to read in the LRC but may not be checked out. We currently retain back issues for monthly magazines for two years and weekly magazines for six months.
New materials may not be checked out if a student has any overdue materials.
Overdue notices will be distributed during homeroom. If a book is lost or damaged beyond repair, the student will be asked to pay for the book. At the end of each quarter overdue materials are mailed out with report cards.
Students may renew books as well as place a title on hold. When the title has been returned to the LRC the staff will notify the student that it is available for check out.
