Please Pass the Pass, Please
How do I get a pass to the Media Center? Get a pass by signing up with Media Center staff before the desired period begins. The best time to get passes is before school, as seating is limited and available on a first come, first served basis. Passes are not required to use the library before or after school, or during lunch.
Then what? Report to your directed study or to Old Hall for attendance and have your pass signed by the teacher. Upon arrival in the library, leave your pass on the attendance counter and sign in next to your name.What about senior privilege and independent study? Students on “senior privilege” or “independent study” are not required to get passes in advance, as long as seating is available, but must sign in with library staff. You are encouraged to get a pass in advance, however, as seating is available on a first come, first served basis. If you leave the Media Center prior to the end of the period, you must sign out with library staff.
