Teachers may schedule the library for collaborative research with the librarian or other projects with which you wish to colloborate with librarian. Mondays and Fridays are reserved for Maker Monday and Free-Read Friday. Wednesday and Thursday block days are the best days for collaborative projects. You may check the online library calendar for availabity. See Mrs. McRae to schedule your class.
Checking Out Equipment/Periodicals
Teachers may check out periodicals and specified library equipment by signing items out in the periodicals log or the equipment log located at the circulation desk.
Students with Chromebook issues should see their homeroom teacher first. If the homeroom teacher cannot solve the problem, the homeroom teacher will file a Technology Ticket and send the student along with the Chromebook and the Technology Ticket number to the library to see Mrs. McRae. If the Chromebook has been damaged, the homeroom teacher will first provide the student with a Damage Report. This Damage Report must be signed by a parent/guardian and returned to the homeroom teacher before a Technology Ticket can be made. Mrs. McRae will address Chromebook issues only during homeroom.
