Policies and Procedures

  • The Idylwild Media Center functions on a fixed/flexible schedule.

    • Kindergarten, First and Second grade classes visit weekly for story and library orientation. Kindergarten checks out books for the first semester of school and keeps them in their classroom. During the second semester, they will be allowed to take the book home with parent permission. First graders may check out one book and second graders may check out two books.
    • Grades 3 through 5 may visit weekly with their class or students may come to the library as needed for checkout and research.  Five students at a time may come in a group. Students in grades 1 and 2 may check out two books. Students in grades 3, 4 and 5 may check out three books.  Checkout is for two weeks and books may be renewed for additional weeks.
    • Students with overdue books will not be permitted to check out additional books. If a book is lost we would appreciate the cost of the book, which will then be used to order a new one.
    • Information skill classes are scheduled with individual teachers, who then collaborate with the media specialist to provide lessons covering the Information grade level objectives


    Parent Visits

    Parents are encouraged to visit the Media Center and check out books. Parents may request a library card that will enable them to check out 5 books.  The media aide is available to assist parents when needed. Parents may come to the Media Center to learn more about any programs offered. Students who come before or after school need a teacher permission slip or a parent accompanying them to come to the Media Center.

Internet Safety

  • The Internet contains wonderful resources for kids and it has drastically changed the way kids interact with the world. The variety and ease of access makes the Internet an invaluable tool for students, teachers and parents today. The use of the Internet expands your child’s computer and information literacy skills and their understanding of the world around them. With the help and guidance of teachers and parents alike, the online world can be a safe, exciting and informative place for your child to learn and grow.

    Here at Idylwild, the Web is an important educational tool that we use on a daily basis. Students will learn Internet Safety Rules and teachers will take measures to keep students safe as they use the Internet. We have an Internet Permission Form, that needs to be signed by students and parents at the beginning of each school year. The school district's filter blocks various Web sites that contain content that is unsuitable for students. And, students are monitored by an adult when using a computer.
