Step #2 - Wait for notification

  • Students will receive an email through their NP GMail account alerting them that the hold is ready for pick up and reminding them of any materials they will need to return. Please do NOT come to pick up books, if you have not received an email. They may not be ready. All holds should be placed by 9pm Sunday. NOTE: All books MUST be returned for new books to be checked out. Books can be returned at the same time you are picking up.

Step #3 - Pick up your books/Return books

  • You can pick up your books from Mrs. Danowski at the front entrance of York Avenue.

  • Just pull up and display a sign with your child's Name and Teacher's name. Open your trunk to your vehicle to help us with maintaining social distancing.

  • If you have any books to return, please make sure they are in the trunk and we will take them from you at that time.

  • Book pickup will be on Tuesdays from 11am-1pm, during meal distribution.
