Media Center Policies and Procedures

    Hours of Operation:

    Staff:  7:30 am to 4:00 pm

    Students: 7:50 am to 3:00 pm


    Kindergarten:  One book for up to two weeks

    Second - Fifth Grade Students: Two books up to two weeks

    Books may be returned earlier for another one as needed. Students can come at teachers discretion. We encourage to make good choices and to find books that are "just right" for them.


    We do not charge fines, at the same time we do not allow a student to check out another book if one is overdue. This is the only way we can assure that the book will be returned to the media center.

    Damages or Lost Book:

    If a book is damaged or lost and is checked out to a student, that student is responsible to pay for the replacement cost of the book. The media center will print out the cost sheet;  just let us know that you need one.

    Please make checks out to Sawnee Elementary. The student's account will be cleared to check out, as soon as the book is paid for. Thank you!
