- In order to visit the Library Media Center, students will be required to email me (please avoid calling, or drop ins, or sending hangout messages). email@example.com
- I will reply to all emails and inform students if space is available, etc.
- Once students are in the library, they will not be allowed to go to another room in the building.
- If students have an appointment scheduled in guidance or need to make up a test, they should remain in study hall instead of visiting the library.
- Disruptive behavior will result in a loss of library privileges.
