Library Expectations

  • All ages of students may be in the library at the same time. Our older students are expected to respect the needs of our younger students by keeping language and behavior appropriate for their younger peers.
  • Food, beverage and chewing gum are not allowed in the library.
  • The library is a quiet place for students and parents to work and study. Please respect them but keeping your voice to a whisper when visiting the library.
