  • Frequently Asked Questions

    How do I get my eClass/network password reset?

    Any teacher who actually has you in class is able to reset your password through their employee portal.


    How many books can I check out?

    Five books and you can keep them for three weeks.


    How much are late fees?

    For every school day that a book is overdue the system charges 10 cents a day.  Please keep up with your due dates and bring your book back to renew or return so you do not continue to accrue fines.  We will stamp the back of your books with your due dates, and we suggest that you put a reminder in your phone to bring it back on time to avoid late fees.


    How do I pay for late fees?

    You can bring cash into the media center or pay online through MyPaymentsPlus  The book needs to be returned before the fine is assessed.  If you lose a book you will be charged a $20.00 replacement fee for a hardcover book or a $10.00 replacement fee for a paperback book.


    How much is printing in the Media Center?

    Printing is available in the Media Center.  Black and white prints are 10 cents a page color prints are 25 cents a page.


    Do I need a pass to come to the Media Center?

    Yes, you just need a red pass signed by your teacher and then you will need to check in at our circulation desk. If you do visit the media center during class time, we ask that you work on something for your classes.  If you need to stay after school in the media center, we ask that you come to the media center during the day to get an orange after school pass.


    Are food and drinks allowed?

    No, food and drinks are not allowed in the media center.  All water bottles or other drinks should be kept in student book bags.


    Can I use my cell phone?

    We ask that students not make phone calls in the media center, if you need to make a call please step right outside the media center.  Please be respectful of others while listening to music or videos.  We should not be able to hear what is on your phone.  Staff may ask students to leave if phone use is disruptive to others. Unfortunately, we can no longer allow students to charge their phones while at school.
