Notes from Mission Control
Checking Out Books
♦ Kindergarten parents must sign a permission slip and return it to the Media Center so their Kindergarten pupil can check out a book.
♦ Kindergarten pupils are allowed to check out one book at a time, and they must leave them in their classrooms.
♦ Books are due after one week. Overdue books need to be returned so pupils can check out another one.
Houston, We Have a Problem
♦ Uh-oh! Did you lose a book? Lost or damaged books must be paid for before a pupil can check out more books!
