Policies and Procedures

The Eagle’s Nest

Borrowing Policy

Students are issued a barcode in their agenda at the beginning of the year. This will be used when checking out materials. Students who come in the media center without their agenda will be sent back to class before checkout is allowed.

  • Media Center hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. daily.
  • Students may check out up to two (3) books for a 2-week period.
  • Students with overdue books and/or overdue fines will not be allowed to check out materials until the book(s) are returned.
  • Lost books should be reported immediately. Students will be charged the purchase price of the book. If you can find the book cheaper, I will accept. If a book is found after paying for a lost book, then a full refund will be issued to the parent or guardian of the student within the first year.
  • Students are responsible for damaged materials checked out under their names. Students will be charged the cost of the item(s) to replace.
