COVID 19 School Closure information for the media center:

  • Unfortunately, we really can't circulate books right now, but there are plenty of online options.

  • If you have a library card with the public library, you have access to tons of resources at their website. This includes audio books!

  • Due dates will all be extended to at least May18, 2020. No need to worry about late fees or fines. We will take care of that.

  • Be sure to look at our Research Resources tab for any help on your research papers.

Technology repair process in the coming days/weeks:

If you need your Chromebook repaired, take it to one of the locations listed below. There will be a tub/container for you to drop off your device. Follow all directions that are there CAREFULLY. Your device will be "quarantined" for 72 hours in the container. Someone will retrieve it, fix it, or replace it. You then will return the following week, same time and location, to pick up your repaired/replaced device. No other options are available at this time. Thank you for understanding.

Pickup and drop off tubs at the following schools:

  • Tuesday will be ACHS 10:00 am - 11:00 am

  • Wednesday will be EAMS 10:00 am - 11:00 am

  • Thursday will be WAMS 10:00 am - 11:00 am
