Using the Library

The library is a resource for students to use for research, reading, and quiet study. Students may use the library with classes and individually.

Nursery through Grade 3 Students: These students must be accompanied by a parent to come to the library after school. No visits allowed on Wednesday afternoons due to teacher meetings.

Grade 4 and Grade 5 Students: For after school visits, students must bring a parent permission note to the office at the beginning of the day in order to be issued a pass to use the library after school. Otherwise they should be accompanied by a parent. No visits allowed on Wednesday afternoons due to teacher meetings.

Students in grades 6 to 8 may use the library before school, during lunch (with a pass), and after school. Students in grades 9 to 12  may use the library before school, during lunch, and after school.
